That’s a wrap! That’s what currently running in BetsuHana. 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?  

  • Shitsuji-sama no Okiniiri is really CUTE! I love that one! It’s about a girl who happens to earn the most sought after butler at her academy – because he’s really an elite like her, but taking the butler courses. Lots of fun and hijinks ensue.

  • Of course, give me Chika Shiomi as well – Yume no Moribito. It’s Chika Shiomi!! You guys really need to read Yukarism and Rasetsu so we’ll get that one as well!!

  • Idea no Hana sounds intriguing. It’s about an orphan who sees spirits and encounters a couple who have the same abilities. Plus, I haven’t seen Emura since W Juliet.

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