Comic to include classic stories in a format aimed at adults

To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the popular manga magazine "Corocoro Comic", the magazine has announced that they are launching a special, 10 volume series called "Legends of Corocoro" (Corocoro no Densetsu). Each volume represents a two year period when the original Corocoro Comic was published (1978-1979, for example), with each volume featuring the most popular comics from certain series from that time period.

The special releases are aimed at a much older audience than "Corocoro Comic", which has long been viewed as one of Japan's most popular manga magazines for younger children. Corocoro publisher Shougakukan is publishing the volumes by year so that adult readers can find a volume that corresponds to their childhood and read some of the stories that they read when they were young.

Shougakukan expects the "Legends" series to be a success, partially due to a strong showing at the World Hobby Fair that took place in Chiba last month.
