It was a bit of shock when I heard that Esquire Japan is to close and their last issue will be out on May 23rd 2009.
I am a fun of Esquire Japan so it is very sad that there will be no more Esquire Japan after the last issue comes out... It is not so difficult to guess that the economic crisis may have hit the company's business and they had to decide to close the magazine but it is a shame that we are losing one of the coolest magazines in Japan.
However, a group of people took action in the hope that they could save the magazine. They launched a web-site to gather signatures to republish the magazine. It would be great if you could visit their site and leave your name to support them.
