Weekly Playboy (週刊プレイボーイ Shūkan Pureibōi?) also known as Shūpure (週プレ?) or WPB is a Japanese weekly magazine published by Shueisha since 1966. Although the magazine publishes a variety of news and special interest articles, columns, celebrity interviews, and comics, it is considered an adult magazine. The target demographic is heterosexual men, and each issue features several nude pictorials of female models.
This magazine is not a regional edition of the American Playboy magazine; the Japanese edition of that magazine was published as Monthly Playboy (MPB) by Shueisha until its cancellation in January 2009.
