Betsuma, short for Bessatsu Margaret, is published by Shueisha on a monthly basis. The titles in Betsuma that have been licensed here in North America are mostly from Viz with Itazura na Kiss published by DMP.

Which popular series have been in Betsuma?   Kimi ni Todoke, Strobe Edge, High School Debut, Love * Com, Crimson Hero, and Itazura na Kiss to name a few. That’s a great list of series, right?  Well, what’s running now, you say? Here’s what’s currently running in Betsuma:

Done! That’s what currently running in Betsuma. 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?  I ♥ LOVE   Ao Haru Ride, and I hope we’ll get that in North America since we got Strobe Edge. It currently has an anime airing this summer that you can view on Crunchyroll. Besides that, ReRe HelloAozora Yell and Stand Up! are the only ones I’ve really gotten into. I’ve looked at Ookami Shoujo to Kuro Ouji and my reaction was nice art, story is “meh”. I’m interested in Warui Hito and Rainbow Days, but haven’t looked at them yet.

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