CoroCoro is on the list in the OTHER:KODOMO Category. Which GanGan, however you are referring to? Square Enix has several magazines that partially share that name.

UPDATE: in light or recent discussion about Champion RED I've moved the magazine appropriately.

However this prompts me, yet again, to ask the lurking updaters (and regular readers) how they think magazines that don't quite fit the shounen/seinen shoujo/josei scale should be tagged?

I haven't checked the forums for a while, but when I did I came across something probably stemming from a minor anomaly in the lists...

[Monthly] Flowers is shoujo, not josei. Sure, it could just as well go either way (sort of like Melody), but in this instance all signs point towards it landing just barely on the shoujo side of the border.

See this post for more details:

I've a question: Dengeki Daioh is considered a shounen or seinen magazine?

It's now labelled as a shounen magazine, but until a short while ago manga such Gunslinger Girl and Yotsubato! (and other ones) were labeled as Seinen (Yotsubato! was also in the poll for the best seinen a while ago), so why has it been changed?

Dengeki Daoh is a Shounen magazine. source is here:
http://www.j-magazine.or.jp/data_001/man_6.html
English Wikipedia cites this page in many places already, and we should follow. Examples:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yotsuba&! (see footnote 1)

And true, I AM the one that walked through all series, changing the demographic tag.

Thanks for the clarification.

Another question: Manga Erotics F is considered to be a magazine intended for adults regardless their gender, isn't it? I'm asking because few manga titles published there (especially series by Jiro Matsumoto and Mohiro Kitoh) are labeled seinen sometimes. Shorlty after that labels are removed, and then set again.

I believe Manga Erotics F is a Gekiga magazine, but I could be wrong. confused

From my understanding, yes. So they probably shouldn't be labeled seinen. I see nothing wrong with having no demographic tag. A lot of labels are based on stereotypes or the mangaka's other works. I have seen a lot of moe titles being labeled shoujo on here.

Erotics F has all sorts of stuff in it. (It's also a lot less biased towards erotic stories than you'd expect from the title.)

If I was absolutely forced to pick one, I'd say it's seinen. But yeah, it's more just manga for grown-ups.

Hrm, personally I'd say it's more josei. The art style is leaning more that way, and there are several shounen-ai titles. I guess it should either be marked with seinen and josei or not marked at all.

Speaking of josei, has anyone noticed that Melody is genre-locked as shoujo here?

Stories about guys liking each other aren't neccessarily josei, you know. Sure it's more probable, but it's not a rule set in stone. And Erotics F doesn't follow many other rules about what you're supposed to put in a manga magazine, so I don't see why it should adhere to that one.

Personally, I don't think it's either. But the one physical sample of it I have (#50) has a clear seinen leaning, so I'd go with that if I absolutely had to. (Not the greatest statistical material, for sure. But if you go only by the series that show up on teh Intarwebs, it'll be a bad selection too, just for other reasons.)

Frankly, it's not at all unusual for magazines to change target demographics over the course of a few years. Ichijinsha's Comic REX for example was a seinen magazine for a long time before they suddenly and unexplainedly began loading its lineup with children-friendly content and adding furigana to all of its manga; even the graphically violent ones.

Then there are magazines such as "Shounen" Sirius, which can't seem to make up its mind.

Shouldn't the pages for Young Animal Island and Young Animal Zoukan Island be merged? (They are two separate pages, one has 9 manga, the other has 2; but they are listed in the OP as one magazine, and I have found nothing to contradict that)
Also, is anyone aware of the frequency / release dates of this magazine?

And may I make a suggestion that the frequency / release dates of magazines be added to their respective pages?

Yeah, I had a look there first. They don't list the frequency for Young Animal Island. I've sent them an email/comment asking about it though.
