I'm really sorry to hear this. Aria had some spectacular artists including Aya Shouoto. I always loved the shikishi contest they'd have yearly, and I'm still thrilled to own one of the Shouoto shikishi that came from this magazine.

Man, I really didn't expect this. I thought it was one of Kodansha's bigger shojo magazines. I guess its ongoing series will be moved to different magazines.

Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo! Aria is one of the only (kind of) mainstream fantasy/historical shoujo magazines. With this, I only have Hakusensha to rely on. Now I'm really worried about Asuka.

There's also Akita Shoten's Princess and its sister magazines and there's still Ichiraci but those aren't very popular as it is and Ichiraci became bi-monthly some time back.

There's still GanGan and its sister magazines but those aren't actually shoujo magazines even if they do have works that appeal to girls.
