Yen Press to End Yen Plus Digital Magazine in Current Format

posted on by Egan Loo
Final issue of 5-year-old magazine to run in December

The Editor's Letter in the November issue of Yen Plus, the digital manga magazine from Yen Press, announced that "the final issue of Yen Plus in its current format" will run in December. Senior Editor JuYoun Lee added that "this change will open the door to all sorts of new opportunities for us!"

Yen Press launched the magazine in August of 2008, after announcing it at the New York Anime Festival in December of 2007. It then moved the magazine online after the July 2010 issue.

Among the series that ran in the magazine's first issues were Soul Eater, Maximum Ride, Nabari no Ō, Sumomomo Momomo, Bamboo Blade, Higurashi: When They Cry, Jack Frost, One Fine Day, Sarasah, and Pig Bride. Yen Plus would later add other titles such as Black Butler, Gossip Girl, Nightschool, and Time and Again.

The November issue included The Dark-Hunters: Infinity, The Infernal Devices, Aron's Absurd Armada, Maximum Ride, Jack Frost, and Soul Eater Not!
