This paper considers the establishment and transition of the magazine Geibun which was published in the new capital Xinjing, the capital of Manchukuo in January 1942. Geibun originated with Geibun- Shya as the first “cultural synthesis magazine.” in Manchukuo. After a total of 23 editions were published by October 1944, Geibun-Shya changed the title of Geibun to Manchuria Kouron, which was published till March 1945. Concurrently with the inauguration of Manchuria Kouron, the Manchuria Literature and the Arts League discontinued the bulletin Manchuria Geibuntsusin and launched Geibunshi, published in Chinese, and Geibun as the new bulletins. Geibun, as a “pure literature and the arts general magazine,” continued until May 1945. But the Manchuria Literature and the Arts League entrusted Manchuria Bungeishunju, Ltd. with the management of Geibun commencing with the July 1944 issue, and entirely withdrew from the management of Geibun commencing with the January 1945 issue. From this point of view, it can be said that Geibun under Geibun-Shya, Geibun by the Manchuria Literature and the Arts League, and Geibun by Manchuria Bungeishunju, Ltd. existed contemporaneously. This paper undertakes to clarify the relation between these three Geibun magazines and explore the character of each magazine comprehensively.
Keywords: Geibun, Literature-and-the-arts instruction outline, Tomio Muto, Manchuria literature-and-the-arts league, Manchuria Bungeishunju, Ltd.
