This is a list of magazines published by the Japanese publishing company ASCII Media Works. After the merger of ASCII and MediaWorks on April 1, 2008, the two company's active magazines continued publication.[1] Most of their magazines center on anime, manga, bishōjo games, or video games. A large number of ASCII Media Works' magazines carry the title Dengeki (電撃?, meaning electric shock) which precedes the title of a given magazine; the Dengeki label is also used on publishing imprints, and contests held by the company, making it a well-known trademark for ASCII Media Works. Other magazines center on computers and information technology.
