Formosa Youth (寶島少年 Báodǎo Shàonián, lit. "Taiwan Teenager") is a weekly Chinese language manga magazine created by Tong Li Publishing for Taiwan. Formosa Youth features various series from the Japanese language manga magazine Weekly Shōnen Jump. The Formosa Youth magazine translates Weekly Shōnen Jump manga up to date. A sister publication of Formosa Youth is Dragon Youth Comic (龍少年 Lóng Shàonián), which specializes in local manhua.

History[edit]

In 1977, the Tong Li company was created and founded by Fang Wan-Nan which created bootlegs, this ended in 1992[1] when a law in Taiwan restricted the act of bootlegging all manga.[1] During 1992, Tong Li created many manga and manhua magazines, New Youth Bulletin, Youth Comic, Margaret, Dragon Youth Comic, and Formosa Youth.[2] Some series like One Piece and Hikaru no Go were first published in the manga/manhua magazine Hot Youth Top (熱門少年TOP) by Daran Publishing, but when Daran Publishing went bankrupt in 2003, those series were transferred into Formosa Youth.
