Betsucomi – Current Serializations


Betsucomi, short for Bessatsu Comic, is a shoujo manga magazine published by Shogakukan on a monthly basis. The titles in Betsucomi that have been licensed here in North America were mostly licensed by Viz. One of the earlier series came from Tokyopop but now are from Viz media under Shojo Beat.

Which popular series have been in Betsucomi?  Dengeki Daisy, Black Bird, Beast Master, We Were There and Sand Chronicles to name a few.  What might we have to look forward to? Here’s what’s currently running in Betsucomi:

Yosh! That’s what currently running in Betsucomi. 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? QQ Sweeper by Motomi is really imaginative and interesting, so that one for sure. Hatsu Haru looks great, as well as Ichire shite, Kisu. I think Koisuru Harenezumi looks really cute, too. And seriously, why have we not gotten anything by Risa Konno? Her art is fabulous. I’ll take Mune ga Naru no wa Kimi no Sei for starters. In case you’re wondering, Kanoko Sakurakoji (Black Bird) just finished a short series and is only doing one-shots right now. We’re waiting on her next long series.

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