In a recent announcement, Akita Shoten’s Weekly Shōnen Champion magazine revealed an exciting addition to its digital counterpart – a brand-new digital supplement magazine known as Champion Buzz.
This supplementary magazine will adopt a monthly publication schedule, hitting digital shelves on the first Thursday of each month. The inaugural issue is set to release alongside the 45th edition of Weekly Shōnen Champion on October 5.
Notably, Champion Buzz will be offered free of charge to readers who purchase the digital version of Weekly Shōnen Champion. Within its pages, readers can anticipate a blend of original creations and manga adaptations inspired by popular web novels.
Champion Buzz makes its grand entrance with the manga adaptation of “Seekers – Meikyū Saikyо̄ no Oji-san, Kami Haishinsha to Naru” by Murata Naka, based on the original work by AteRa.
It’s worth noting that Weekly Shōnen Champion, a venerable institution in the manga world, embarked on its journey back in 1969 and evolved from a bi-monthly publication to a weekly one in 1970.
