More shoujo titles to fill up your bookshelf out this month. New series from Arina Tanemura “Idol Dreams” debuts. Final volume of “Yukarism” by Chika Shiomi as well. Here’s all the shoujo and josei manga being newly released for the month of November 2015.

Ani-Imo 5

Anim-Imo, vol. 5

Quite by accident, Youta and Hikaru have finally returned to their original bodies. It should be a happy event, but just because they’ve reverted back to normal doesn’t mean their brother-sister relationship can so easily return to the way it once was. Hikaru is adamant not to lose the momentum she’s gained over the past few weeks, but Koizumi is equally resolved to see Hikaru as only his sister. Now that she’s back in her own body and not his, though, it’s impossible for him not to notice how attractive the whole Hikaru really is…

BRA 6

Black Rose Alice, vol. 6

Flash-forward to modern-day Tokyo. Alice has been living with the vampires for a few years, and while she pays lip service to the idea of choosing a propagation partner, she’s no closer to a decision now than when she first entered the mansion. But recent events are forcing her to abandon her happy interlude and make the final, fatal judgment…

Are You Alice 10

Are You Alice, vol. 10

When Lewis Carroll took in a little black cat for Alice Liddell, he most likely never imagined that it would be the sole witness to his final throes of madness. Nor could he have fathomed just how much a cynical alley cat could make of his discarded characters. So spins the tale of how the Cheshire Cat came to be – and how he may yet come to be Lewis Carroll’s undoing.

As Mr. Smith continues his journey to India, he is welcomed into the home of a wealthy tradesman and his wife, Anis. Custom dictates that, as a woman, Anis is not permitted to meet their visitor face-to-face, but even so, she counts herself blessed to live in such a beautiful estate and be married to a man who devotes himself solely to her. Still, one cannot help but long for the companionship of another person when one’s closest friend is a reluctant Persian cat. In her loneliness, Anis visits the public bath house and discovers a place where she feels immediately free among her fellow sisters.

Yet despite their fantastical natures, Himeno and her best friends-the dragon-winged Nozomi, and Kyoko with her spiraled horns-are down-to-earth, fun-loving teenagers who grapple with issues of life and love in a mostly normal daily school setting.
