Shojo Beat  
Today I received an issue of Shonen Jump in the mail. With it came a piece of paper (pictured below) explaining about the situation with Shojo Beat.

At the time I made a voice post reading the letter. I apologize for my weird breathing and any mispronunciations.

O_O Do they honestly think that shojo fangirls would be happy getting issues of Shonen Jump?????? Idiots.

Although, I do admit I was happy that this issue of Shonen Jump had Naruto 437 in it.

*pulls up Naru manga folder to check*

Oooooo... good chapter. I'm sure that was all planned out. They waited for the most romantic moment in Naruto to try and make shojo gals switch publications. Definite evil plan in the works there.

*sigh* Hinata is so cool. Naruto needs to pay more attention to her. ^_^

...I purposely got Shoujou Beat because I don't LIKE Shounen Jump. I have one issue and I didn't like it. I wonder why I even bought it in the first place.

*pats* You can have them refund your subscription I think.

My aunt will get the refund. She was the one who subscribed to it because I wanted it :/

I still don't know why they would stop?
I guess I don't mind getting in Shonen Jump since I like Bleach and Naruto.

It has to do with the economy and how it's not going so great. That's all I really know.

I like Bleach and Naruto too but I usually read Naruto scanlations and get the Bleach volumes. I'm really going to miss the SB DIY stuff.

WHAT O_O weird! I wonder why they discontinued it :( ha its funny cuz I originally had animerica and then they discontinued that and gave me shojo beat issues to finish off teh subscription. how bizzare.

I don't know if you saw this but someone had made an online petition to try and get SB back. http://www.gopetition.com/online/29281.html

But yeah, that's weird.
