posted on by Jennifer Sherman
The publisher Harper Collins Japan will release the first issue of its new Otome Dolce manga magazine on March 20. The company will publish the magazine quarterly around the 20th of March, June, September, and December.
The magazine aimed at women will publish manga adaptations of novels that depict romance stories between men and women. The inaugural issue will feature an illustration by Sakyō Ikegami (illustrator of the Alexandros Denki and Genjū Kōrin-tan novel series) on the cover. The magazine will debut Itsumi Takahashi's manga adaptation of Rise Serina's Hatsukoi Marriage ~Wasureji no Omoi to Yakusoku no Kishi~ novel, and serialize three other titles from the existing Otome Dolce Comics label: Sakuya Fujii's manga adaptation of Saya Kamisu's Dare ni mo Ienai Hanayome Shūgyō ~Amai Mitsu no Yukata~ novel, Takao Kasaki's manga adaptation of Mato Shiraishi's Kōshaku-sama no Dokusho Kakari ~Tesaguri no Aibu~ novel, and Shibuki Chouno's manga adaptation of Himemi Mai's Neburenu Ōji wa Midara ni Sasou novel. In addition to these four series, the magazine will have a 125-page one-shot manga.
Harper Collins Japan established the book volume imprint Otome Dolce Comics in 2015 in order to publish manga adaptations of romance novels.
