	- Price includes 3% of Japanese consumption tax.
	- Some mags often have special price due to the extra pages.
	- The name of editor is different from that of the distributor 
	  in some cases.
	- The release date becomes a day prior if it's Sunday/holiday.
	- #print indicates numbers of copies published, divided by 10,000.
	- Some mags are returned to publishers in most cases, so the 
	  circulation numbers don't necessarily mean the exact popularity.
	- ex. in the title means "zoukan", extra issue.
