Kanagaki Robun and Kawanabe Kyosai created the first manga magazine in 1874: Eshinbun Nipponchi. The magazine was heavily influenced byJapan Punch, founded in 1862 by Charles Wirgman, a British cartoonist. Eshinbun Nipponchihad a very simple style of drawings and did not become popular with many people. Eshinbun Nippon chiended after three issues. The magazine Kisho Shimbunin 1875 was inspired by Eshinbun Nipponchi, which was followed by Marumaru Chinbunin 1877, and then Garakuta Chinpoin 1879.
