Magazine switches to B5 format with new theme every issue

The March 1 issue of Hakusensha's The Hana to Yume magazine (cover pictured at right) announced on Thursday that it will change its publishing format starting from the June 1 issue on April 25, switching to B5 (6.9 x 9.8 inches) dimensions similar to its Hana to Yume sister magazine. Additionally, each issue of the magazine will have a new theme, with works that portray the theme. The next issue's theme is "fantasy," and manga creator Julietta Suzuki will publish a new manga in that issue with that theme.

The announcement did not state whether Suzuki's manga will be a one-shot or a serialization.

The magazine also launched Kaede Kōchi's Life So Happy manga, a sequel to the earlier Love So Life manga. The manga originally launched in Hana to Yume in April 2016, and Hakusensha published the manga's second compiled book volume last October. The original Love So Life manga launched in The Hana to Yume in 2008, and then switched to Hana to Yume, where it ran until it ended in July 2015.

Suzuki recently ended her Tripitaka Torinique manga in Hana to Yume on January 4. The fourth and final volume will ship on March 20. Suzuki launched the series in October 2016.

Suzuki launched the Kamisama Kiss (Kamisama Hajimemashita) manga in Hana to Yume in 2008, and ended the series in May 2016 with 25 volumes. Viz Media publishes the manga in English, and released the 25th volume last October.

Kamisama Kiss inspired two anime seasons, and Funimation streamed both seasons as they aired in Japan, and also released both seasons on home video. The manga also inspired a series of four original anime DVDs (OADs) that shipped with the manga's 22nd-25th compiled volumes. A "volume 25.5," an official fanbook, shipped in December 2016, and bundled a DVD with an original anime, and a 32-page epilogue manga.
