Faust (ファウスト Fausuto?) is a literary magazine published irregularly by Kodansha since 2003, promoted as a "Fighting illustory magazine." Square-bound like novels, all volumes have remained in print. Faust features young writers and a style derived from light novels. The magazine is single-handedly edited by Katsushi Ōta, who was also in charge of the Kodansha Box line.

Del Rey released an English language edition in August 2008 and plans to publish at least two volumes total, with content culled from all issues of the Japanese magazine.[1]
