Shojo Beat issue featuring Vampire Knight

Because of the popularity of shōjo manga in Japan, manga originally serialized in Japanese magazines have been re-serialized in magazines around the world. These magazines are very similar to their Japanese counterparts, and some even feature sections on the pop culture of Japan.
