Monthly Sunday Gene-X ( Japanese : 月刊サンデーGENE-X , Hepburn : Gekkan Sandē Jenekkusu ) , often abbreviated as Sunday GX ( サンデーGX ) , is a Seinen manga magazine published by Shogakukan . Like many other manga magazines, it's an " anthology magazine" with each issue featuring new chapters of several manga series. The series are also published in book form as Sunday GX Comics .

The magazine's title, Monthly Sunday Gene-X , refers to its mission as a manga magazine for Generation X . The first issue was published on July 19, 2000 and new issues are published on the 19th day of each month — not necessarily on a Sunday. The title uses the word "Sunday" more as a trademark or genre name, shared with its sister magazines Weekly Shōnen Sunday and Weekly Young Sunday . [3]

The first year when the magazine was actually published on a Sunday two months in a row was in 2006. This is because 2006 is a common year starting on Sunday , the following occurrence of which is 2017. In such years, the 19th is a Sunday three times: February 19, March 19 and November 19. [4]

The magazine is not limited to Japanese productions; a Korean comic series, Blade of the Phantom Mask , was also serialized in translated and flipped form, perhaps helped by current interest as a Japanese-Korean anime movie. If one of their manga series has such a tie-in , an anime TV series or movie version being aired or screened around the same time, editors like to emphasize this in an act of cross promotion .

Shogakukan also publishes manga series previously featured in Sunday GX as paperback tankōbon (compilation volumes) under the imprint Sunday GX Comics (GENEX Comics). While in English the term " comics " also includes single chapters and comic strips , " comics ( コミック , komikku ) " primarily means "manga tankōbon" in Japanese .
