Bessatsu Hana to Yume Shōjo Magazine Ends Publication on Saturday
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Retailer Rakuten's listing for the July issue of Hakusensha's Bessatsu Hana to Yume (Betsuhana) shōjo magazine shows the issue's cover (seen right), revealing that the magazine will end with that issue. The issue will ship on Saturday.
Hakusensha launched the magazine in 1977 as a sister magazine to the main Hana to Yume magazine. The magazine started out as a quarterly publication. The magazine became a bimonthly publication in 1991, and then a monthly publication in 1993. It returned to bimonthly in 2002, before finally returning to a monthly schedule in 2006.
The magazine has hosted such manga as Kaori Yuki's Grand Guignol Orchestra and Blood Hound; Makoto Tateno's King of Cards; Aya Kanno's Otomen; Chika Shiomi's Yukarism, Rasetsu, and Ludwig Revolution; Fuyu Tsuyama and Rei Izawa's Shitsuji-sama no Okiniiri; and Saki Hiwatari's Boku o Tsutsumu Tsuki no Hikari, as well as its sequel Boku wa Chikyū to Utau. Suzue Miuchi's Glass Mask and Mineo Maya's Patalliro! were still being serialized in the magazine until this month.
