Kodansha will launch a new manga magazine, titled Monthly Shōnen Magazine +, on October 20. The new magazine will include one-shots from authors from Monthly Shōnen Magazine, one-shots from new artists, and continuing serializations from Kodansha's Magazine E-no, which ceased publication in June.
In particular, the new magazine will feature the return of Ikku Masa's Sakura Taisen: Manga-ban Dainibu (Sakura Wars the Manga Part II) and Jun Shindo's Red Eyes. It will also have a new basketball gag manga titled Near Boys (a reference to Dear Boys/Hoop Days) from Cromartie High School creator Eiji Nonaka. It will include Takeshi Maekawa's one-shot spinoff manga Ironfist Chinmi Gaiden and Toka Adachi's one-shot Noragami manga, and a side story for Ryoutarou Iwanaga's Pumpkin Scissors manga drawn by Nobu Ōtsuki. The new magazine will print a crossover manga between two Motohiro Katou manga series — Q.E.D. and C.M.B. — which will star the protagonists of the two series.
