Ahhh! Happy Marriage!!! Thank you Viz!!!

... now that is going to be the most embarrassing thing in my manga collection I think.

Viz added more josei. I shall be happily content with this til next year.

Yay more josei! Very Happy Actually they all look fairly interesting. I'll probably buy seikyu-ka! and Yorishiku master. I may get the other two at some point as well.

Never heard about any of these titles but Midnight Secretary sounds like it at least has the potential to be interesting. Not so sure about the others but I'll keep an eye out for reviews.

It's about time Maki Enjouji and Ohmu Tomi got released in English! (Although I really expected Private Prince rather than Happy Marriage to be licensed first. Who cares; love 'em both.) Marie-Antoinette, if you like Yuki Yoshihara, you will probably enjoy both of these series. I'm not even a big vampire fan, but I had a blast with Midnight Secretary, and Enjouji's works are uniformly delightful.

I'm excited about the other two as well, of course, but josei makes me absurdly happy. Very Happy

I've heard good things about Butterflies, Flowers, but otherwise I sadly know nothing about Yuki Yoshihara. I may have to pick that one up though, as well as Midnight Secretary (I am a big vampire fan, so hearing good things from someone who isn't definitely gets me even more excited about that one).

This rocks! I truly never expected any of these to be licensed, especially Midnight Secretary! Now I have to make the space for them.

Ahhh, so much new shojo! I'm especially happy about Yoroshiku Master! I love the manga-ka's other works, so I'm sure I'll love this one too.

Hurray for Midnight Secretary! That's been one of my requests. Ok, next up, someone license rescue Cantarella and Deadman Wonderland! Anyone out there listening?

I don't know anything about them. I'll check 'em out at a B&N if they end up on the shelves. If I like them, I'll make a purchase...

I'm now curious if Midnight Secretary will be censored in some way. From what I recall of my friend's Japanese volumes, that book is really smutty.

not something you could casually leaf through in the Barnes and Noble...

Sigh, Midnight Secretary. The only adult aspect of this manga is the uninteresting smut. Otherwise, cue spineless might-as-well-be a shoujo heroine that just happens to be an adult and we have ourselves a "Josei" title. Shallow characters with as much depth as a kiddie pool and a bunch of contrived conflict and there you have Midnight Secretary. Won't be buying this one and wouldn't take it if they offered it to me for free. Guess I'll continue not buying any Josie/shoujo Viz print until NANA returns.

They'll probably plastic wrap it and slap an explicit advisory content label on it and be done. IIRC, there's nothing so explicit in it that would call for censorship. No close up of penetration, no visible male parts, no fluids other than maybe some sweat if even that. The only real nudity is just the heroine's breasts. Pretty vanilla IMO.
