In 2007, the Japanese National PTA Conference ranked Sho-Comi the worst manga magazine for young children due to its excessive sexual content.[11][12] Many concerned parents have advised publishers to be more wary of the availability of these magazines to young readers.[13]

From January to March 2019, Sho-Comi had 70,000 physical copies in circulation, which later dropped to 68,000 from April to June 2019.[14] From July to September 2019, the magazine had 63,000 physical copies in circulation.[15]
