What? Scum bags. I get it that current times are not exactly lush. But you could at least bring each of your series to a somewhat more professional end.
Not to mention, a straight refund, or perhaps a letter offering a refund OR a switch to one of the company's sister magazines would have been preferable to having been railroaded into a Shonen Jump subscription. (I say this knowing full well that I read no less than four of their regularly serialized stories. I just really HATE being told what and when to read and/or where to read it).
Oh well Shojo Beat, in the end, the joke is on you. I am a yaoi girl at heart and my interest was only piqued by shojo after a gift subscription of your magazine landed on my doorstep. No, I do not buy Shojo I have not sampled (thanks to your oft indiscriminate publishing, I have discovered that it is frequently a waste of time and money to invest myself in series that I ultimately will not like) and so I do not doubt that the number of shojo GNs I purchase will soon taper to zero (most likely some time around Feb. 2010).
Life has a funny way of coming full circle like that,
