Weekly Shounen Sunday (週刊少年サンデー) is a comprehensive manga magazine published by Shogakukan. The first issue was published in 1959 and it releases on every Wednesday now. The meaning of the “Sunday” in the name is to make readers enjoy a happy weekend. Compared to its rival Weekly Shounen Jump, which insists on the core psychology of “friendship, struggle, and victory”, Shounen Sunday has no definite style. The theme of sports, science fiction, magic, detective, history, love is all available and it depends on the manga artists.
Since its publication, it has released many classical mangas, like Takahashi Rumiko’s Ranma 1/2 and InuYasha, ASACHI Mitsuru’s Touch and Cross Game, AOYAMA Gosho’s Detective Conan and Magic Kaitou, Wakaki Tamiki’s The World God Only Knows and so on. Though some of them have completed, they bring us many beautiful memories and much happiness in our childhood.
