The first issue of Yen Plus went on sale on July 29, 2008 with five manga titles originally published by Gangan Comics, four manhwa titles, and two OEL manga titles. The magazine contains over 450 pages an issue, and reads both right-to-left for manga titles, and left-to-right for manhwa and OEL manga titles; as such, each issue has two covers. Although Yen Plus does not publicize official circulation figures, Hachette Book Group publicity materials for the Maximum Ride manga reported a circulation figure for Yen Plus of "nearly 100,000 copies" as of late 2008. The print publication was suspended following the July 2010 issue and the magazine was published online. In December 2013, the online version also folded.
