Comic Ryū Magazine Moves Online (Updated)
posted on by Karen Ressler
This year's July issue of Tokuma Shoten's Monthly Comic Ryū magazine announced on Saturday that the magazine is moving online. The final print issue will be the August issue, which will ship on June 19.
All currently-serialized manga will debut online for free in July on the tentatively titled "Comic Ryū Web-hen" (web edition).
The magazine launched in September 2006, and had a nine-month hiatus in 2011-2012.
Manga that currently run in the magazine include OKAYADO's Monster Musume, Kei Murayama's A Centaur's Life, Tetsuya Imai's Alice & Zoroku, Shake-O's Nurse Hitomi's Monster Infirmary, and Kimama Aoboshi's Kinoko Inu - Mushroom Pup.
The July issue issue announced an anime adaptation for Auri Hirao's Oshi ga Budōkan Ittekuretara Shinu manga. It also published the final chapter of Tsukasa Saimura's Hour of the Zombie (Igai: The Play Dead/Alive).
Update: The final print issue of the magazine is the August issue on June 19, not the July issue as previously stated in this article.
