Weekly Shonen Jump, Coro Coro Comic rose; Shonen Magazine, Shonen Sunday dropped

The Japanese Magazine Publishers Association has released the circulation numbers for Japanese manga magazines from its Magazine Data 2010 book. The data covers the period between October 1, 2008 and September 30, 2009.

The bestselling manga magazine, Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump, rose in circulation from 2.79 million copies to 2.81 million. However, its closest competitor, Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine, dropped from 1.77 million to 1.65 million. Similarly, Shogakukan's Weekly Shonen Sunday dropped from 880,000 to 770,000. Shogakukan's Coro Coro Comic's circulation did rise from 860,000 to 910,000, but almost all other shōnen magazines' circulation numbers fell.
