Another loss in the anime/manga industry. They might not be an individual company since they are part of Viz, but Shojo Beat’s cancellation is a bad thing none the less.
Today, Viz has stated that they had quit accepting subscriptions and the company that publishes it said the publication is ending in July. Currently, you can get issues of Shonen Jump to replace ant remaining months for your Shojo Beat subscription.
As for the Shojo Beat single volume manga, no one has stated if they are effected, but I think more than likely, they will be finished.
This is another bad thing cause by online manga sites that claim “fair use” and let everyone read licensed manga for free. Hopefully the US companies and Japanese companies wil find a way to fix this soon.
