When Jmanga first started out, one of the things I was hoping for was more romance and josei manga. While it took a little bit of time for these genres to take off on the site, I have really been happy with the pace that they’ve been adding new volumes. My only wish now is for more multi-volume series, but I suspect that there will be plenty of those to binge on in the upcoming months. It is actually getting a bit tricky for me to keep track of what I want to read on the site, so I thought I’d share some of the series that are on my radar, so I’d be able to remember what I want to read when I have more points.
Dousei Ai by Setona Mizushiro. I was excited when I saw that Jmanga would be releasing this series, since Mizushiro’s series After School Nightmare is loved by many manga bloggers. I only tried a couple volumes of that series, but it was definitely interesting and a change of pace, so I want to check this out.
The Twelve Hour Ruler – This is a fantasy series from Ohzora publishing and two volumes are available! Here’s the series description:
One day, Koyuki, a girl who works at a tavern in the port city of Salim, is saved from the advances of a feudal lord by a pair of twin princes, the cool and collected older brother Eleven and the free-spirited younger brother Twelve. After they invite her to the palace, Koyuki begins to learn the truth and destiny of the Empire. A royal fantasy revolving around the myths of the desert empire Orchis!!
Evil feudal lords and twin princes sound fun
Pippira Note - One day, a young woman named Kimiko meets a little lost bird named Pippira. Living with the little bird becomes a series of surprises and discoveries. Before long this little happiness becomes, to Kimiko, an irreplaceable treasure in her day to day life. – This looks almost unbearably cute. I think it is great that Jmanga is putting out so much work by Fumiyo Kouno, author of Town of Evening Calm, Country of Cherry Blossoms.
SEREILA OF SILVER -The Kidnapped Princess Falls In Love With The Falcon King – I was lukewarm about the other Rin Koudouki titles I’d tried, but I’m curious to see if the story develops a little more depth in the sequel.
Tale of the Crescent Moon Dragon – The art in this historical seinen title looks stylin’. Also features a hero with an eyepatch, which can only be a good thing.
Odds GP! – I think this is a sports manga about bicycle racing!
More Harlequin/Romance Titles:
Passionate Fantasy – I want to read this for the sole reason that the hero’s name is “Darius Speed.”
Jack and the Princess – I will always read romance manga about princesses.
In the SAND DUNES where the black feathers dance – This initially caught my eye because the title is almost long enough to be a Fiona Apple album, but the creator Hashimoto adapted one of my favorite Harlequin manga To Marry a Stranger, which was also notable because the hero had an eye patch.
Prisoner of the Tower – I will also always read romance manga about towers.
Keeping Luke’s Secret – “Leonie is drawn to his cold green eyes…” of course she is!
What series on Jmanga look good to you?
