Monthly Shōnen Gangan (月刊少年ガンガン Gekkan Shōnen Gangan?) is a monthly manga magazine that happens to be one of the thickest manga compilations in Japan[citation needed], regularly having over 600 pages. Shōnen Gangan was launched by Enix (now "Square Enix") in 1991, to compete with other magazines such as Shōnen Magazine, Shōnen Jump and Shōnen Sunday, and is targeted toward the same young, male demographic ("Shōnen" means young boy or young man). It features manga with lots of action and adventure; science fiction and fantasy elements in the stories are very common. Square Enix also publishes the related Gangan YG and Monthly Gangan Wing.
