posted on by Jordain Haley-Banez
The staff of Ichijinsha's Comic Yuri Hime magazine announced on Saturday that the magazine will change from a bimonthly publication to a monthly publication. Ichijinsha currently publishes the magazine on the 18th day of every odd month. The magazine will switch to a monthly publication starting with the January 2017 issue, which will ship on November 18.
The magazine will also launch 10 more serialized works with the January 2017 issue, and the issue will have an "important announcement." Ichijinsha published the manga's September issue (cover pictured at right) on Saturday.
Comic Yuri Hime began as a special edition to Ichijinsha's Monthly Comic Zero-Sum magazine in July 2005 with a quarterly release schedule. The magazine became an independent one in 2008, and in 2010, Ichijinsha increased the frequency to a bimonthly publication. The magazine currently has a print run of around 55,000 copies per issue.
Comic Yuri Hime is currently publishing titles such as: Saburouta's Citrus and Namori's Yuruyuri manga. The magazine's current line up also includes Kuzushiro's Inugami-san to Nekoyama-san, Yayoi Ohsawa 2DK, GPen, Mezamashidokei, merryhachi's Tachibanakan To Lie Angle, and Meno's Ato de Kyōdai masu manga, among others.
