Yosh! Those are all the series currently running in Aria. There are always short stories and one shots of course. These are the main series you will see that are ongoing.

So which of these series that’s non-licensed would I like to see? 

  • Setsuna Grafitti looks good and it’s by the same author that wrote No. 6 that we just finished here in North America. It’s about two boys who want to become pyro-technicians.
  • I really loved Ghost Hunt, so I’d love to read the sequel to that series – Akuma no Sumu Ie – Ghost Hunt. 
  • Watashi no Ookami-kun reminds me of Wolf Children in that the girl finds herself falling for a boy that’s a wolf.
  • The new series Shounen Hollywood looks promising for bishie fangirls. Group of cute boys making it in Hollywood – sounds fun.
  • Those of you who like Teacher-Student relationships would probably like Asami Sensei no Himitsu.
  • More of Ema Toyama is always nice, so her series Watanuki-san ni wa Bokura ga Tarinai is on the list, not only for the author but the story premise as well.  The main character is the student council president and she lives in a love hotel, but doesn’t want anyone to find out. But one boy does. Sound familiar? (Kaichou wa Maid-sama) Gotta be hilarious with Toyama writing it.
  • Speaking of hilarious I about died from giggling when I translated that really LONG title up there – Zenra Otoko…When it came out to be Midget and Naked Man I laughed so hard. It sounds interesting to say the least.

  • How about you? Anything look interesting? What would you like to read?
