  • Hideki Kawai's Haru wa na Nomi no (beginning with chapter 1 in December)

Mikan Momokuri's Gunjyou ni Siren manga will move to the Shonen Jump+ app beginning with the first chapter in late November.

Shueisha announced in May that it planned to end the magazine because it was "unable to stop the continued decline in manga magazine readership as female readers shift towards compiled book volumes and digital copies." Shueisha will instead expand its efforts toward digital manga, and will focus on its Cocohana magazine, as well as You Magazine's sister magazine office YOU.

Shueisha debuted You Magazine as a manga magazine for adult women, and as a special spinoff from its Monthly Seventeen magazine, in December 1980. The magazine became a monthly publication in July 1982. You Magazine has serialized such manga as Kozueko Morimoto's Gokusen, Deka Wanko, and Kōdai-ke no Hitobito; Jun Fukami's Pokka Poka; Satoru Makimura's Real Clothes; and Kaoru Fukaya's KANNAsa-n!.
