CoroCoro Aniki (Japanese: コロコロアニキ, Korokoro Aniki) is a Japanese manga magazine created by Shogakukan as a sister magazine to CoroCoro Comic magazine. It is currently published quarterly. (Formerly published on random dates.)
Unlike other CoroCoro magazines, Aniki targets at readers who are about 30 to 40 years-old that are the readers of CoroCoro Comic magazine. As such, many series serializes on this magazine were either spin-offs or sequels to the series serialized on CoroCoro Comic. (there are few exceptions though)
- On February 9th, 2016, one of the magazine's manga, Sock it! Kiyohara-kun by Junji Kawai, have its serialization halted by Shogakukan starting from the magazine's 5th issue. This is due to Kazuhiro Kiyohara, a real-life Japanese former baseball player whose the manga's titular character is modeled after, was arrested due to the possession of illegal drugs.
- Because the magazine has CoroCoro's title to its name, book stores in Japan are often place the magazine into the children section of the book store, rather than its intended Seinen section. This led to a message being placed into the magazine by Shogakukan starting with the 6th issue to reminds book store owners to not place the magazine into the children section.
