From Mainichi Daily News comes an article on Houbunsha's Comic Yell, a new magazine that will carry girl-oriented manga aimed at men:

The success of the girl-oriented manga amongst male manga fans prompted the release of Comic Yell, Japan's first girl's manga for men.

With men's manga like Shonen Jump attracting a 50 percent female readership, Comic Yell's publishers Hobunsha figured it was time to give guys an opening into the world of shojo, or girl's, manga.

Houbunsha has opened the official website of its new manga magazine Comic Yell! at www.comicyell.com. According to the website, Comic Yell! is "a Shoujo manga magazine for boys," which, as many fans have pointed out online, is quite similar to Futabasha's Comic High!.

Houbunsha has launched a new light novel label titled Houbunsha KR Bunko (芳文社KR文庫). Works published under this label will be novel adaptations of 4-panel manga serialized in Houbunsha's 4-panel manga magazines.

The first 4-panel manga to be adapted to a light novel and published under the Houbunsha KR will be Ume Aoki's Hidamari Sketch.

Houbunsha will launch a new magazine titled Comic Yell on May 11th. The magazine will cost 580 yen, and is aimed at "boys of the next generation."
