Which popular series have been in Nakayoshi?   Pretty Soldier Sailor Moon, Shugo-Chara!, Arisa, Kitchen Princess, Cardcaptor Sakura, Missions of Love, and Magic Knight Rayearth 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 Nakayoshi:

Yosh! That’s what currently running in Nakayoshi. 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? Of course Fairy Tail – Blue Mistral. Sabagebu currently has a summer anime that you can view, but I’m not sure I’d want to read it. Kigurumi Boueitai looks interesting, though.  Hyakki Koiran sounds like something I’d like as well.

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