Joint effort to publish Rikachi's Ibara no Namida, Akiko Morishima's Hanjuku-Joshi, and Hachime Mikuni's Gokujō Drops

Erica Friedman, president of Yuricon and ALC Publishing, announced in August that ALC Publishing and JManga will publish three new yuri manga from Ichijinsha's Comic Yurihime: Rikachi's Ibara no Namida, Akiko Morishima's Hanjuku-Joshi, and Hachime Mikuni's Gokujō Drops. No official premiere date has been announced, but the manga will be available on

The description of the three manga are as follows:

The thorn inside the apple that made a princess sleep pricks inside Maki's heart. Even while carrying that thorn as an adult, Maki has a premonition of a new love….that girl who looks a little like her first love makes Maki's heart beat a little faster. However… in the end it was futile…again. That time, this time, it's always the same. Why can't she grab on to love… But, there is one love who waits for her… Rikachi crafts a whole new fairy-tale for Romeo's best friend Maki in Ibara no Namida. Will she ever find a princess of her own?

When we touch, I grow wings…… A Love and Sex story of two young women packed with growth to maturity. Yae, a girl who has a complex about how feminine she is, transfers to a girl's high school where she meets boyish and energetic Chitose. Chitose's astonishing lack of inhibition is intensely attractive…a woman's world rapidly unfolds in a bittersweet story. Plus, a Student x Teacher adult story!! Pioneer Yuri manga artist Morishima Akiko leads the way with a tender (and educational) story about young love, body image, gender roles and Yuri in Hanjuku-Joshi!

I became slave to a rich girl!? The vivid Harem Love story of the idiosyncratic clique in a women's dormitory!! It will be too much as hearts throb…girl's lips are soft aren't they…feelings and body melt together… In Mikuni Hachime's “ecchi” comedy Gokujō Drops, Maezono Komari runs into housing issues at school (haven't we all?) and finds herself accepted, conditionally, in the fanciest dorm on campus. The sole condition? That she act as servant to school star Himemiya Yukio. That's tolerable, but the sexual harassment is just beginning…worse, Komari is starting to have feelings for Yukio!

ALC Publishing and JManga also collaborated in June to publish Namori's Yuruyuri manga, as well as Rikachi's Sorairo Girl Friend and Taishi Zaou and Eiki Eiki's Haru Natsu Aki Fuyu manga. All three manga series, which are or were all published in Ichijinsha's Comic Yurihime magazine, premiered on the JManga website this summer.
