The official website of Shueisha’s You Magazine has announced that the magazine will end with its November 2018 issue, which will ship on October 15, 2018. The final issue of the magazine and the website will reveal the fate of all currently serialized series in the magazine.
Shueisha stated that it is shutting down the magazine since 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 officeYOU.
Shueisha debuted You Magazine as a manga magazine for adult women, and as a special spin-off from its Monthly Seventeen magazine, in December 1980. It became a monthly publication in July 1982. It 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!.
