  • Lemon People(レモンピープルRemon Pīpuru) was a lolicon hentai manga magazine published by Kubo Shoten from 1981 to 1998 in Japan. The first issue had some gravure idol photographs, but the format of the magazine quickly switched to all manga by the eighth issue. By the mid-1990s, the sales of Lemon People began to drop, and the magazine changed its format to the B5 paper size and reduced its cover price. This strategy was not effective, however, and the November 1998 issue was the last one, ending a run of sixteen years and nine months.

  • Lemon People(レモンピープルRemon Pīpuru) was a lolicon hentai manga magazine published by Kubo Shoten from 1981 to 1998 in Japan. The first issue had some gravure idol photographs, but the format of the magazine quickly switched to all manga by the eighth issue. Lemon People is considered a founder of the lolicon manga boom in Japan in the 1980s, and was the longest-running lolita manga magazine in Japan. The magazine also published many other types of non-pornographic manga series including science fiction, fantasy, and horror, as well as humor and parody. Lemon People received competition from other magazines such as Manga Burikko, Manga Hot Milk, Melon Comic, and Monthly Halflita, though none of them achieved the same success. Before Lemon People, adult comics tended to be more dramatic and serious. Lemon People changed the genre by introducing a more cute style of manga, often with less intense storylines. Throughout the 1980s and 1990s, there was a growing movement in Japan to censor magazines such as Lemon People because some viewed them as harmful to young people. By the mid-1990s, the sales of Lemon People began to drop, and the magazine changed its format to the B5 paper size and reduced its cover price. This strategy was not effective, however, and the November 1998 issue was the last one, ending a run of sixteen years and nine months.
