Proper Japanese Title: ヤングマガジン
Kodansha's weekly seinen manga magazine, as opposed to Weekly Shonen Magazine which is aimed at teenage boys, Young Magazine is aimed at adult males.
Originally a biweekly, during this period it serialized works like Katsuhiro Otomo's Akira. But after nearly a full decade it switched to a weekly publication rate in early 1989.
For a time Kodansha toned down the use of gravure idols on the covers by making digital-only covers that put the manga in the forefront (the physical versions still always used the idols). Like other manga magazines with gravure idols, the majority of the magazine is actually made up of manga with gravure just making up a small gallery. Young Magazine was an early trendsetter of this cover-style, already adopting it pretty fully in 1982 while competitor Weekly Young Jump only did so just over a decade later.
