The Heiress and the Chauffer Japanese version

Otakon was light on shoujo announcements, but Viz Media’s Shoujo Beat announced Saturday that it licensed Ojou-sama no Untenshu, translated to The Heiress and the Chauffeur by Keiko Ishihara. The two-volume series will be released beginning in May 2016.

According to Anime News Network, “the story takes place in the Taishō era, at a girl’s school where one young lady, Sayaka, earns the envy of all the other girls. She wears a red ribbon to mark her the top student at school. She is always followed by a chauffeur, an employee of her family. The rumor among the students is that the two are in love.”

The series originally ran in Hakusensha’s Lala DX magazine in 2010.

  • Interesting. Will check this out. Still hoping a series with at the least 10 volumes comes out. I’ve been going on shoujo shopping sprees after work with my tip money. I sincerely hope that my purchases do something to help the shoujo markets here in America and that more series are released. As much as I like shounen and Seinen, I really want more shoujo on my shelf.

    • There are some that are 10+:
      So Cute It Hurts!!
      Demon Prince of Momochi House (will get there)
      Kiss Him Not Me (most likely get there as well)
      Princess Jellyfish
      My Love Story!! (will probably get there too – it’s so popular in Betsuma!)

      I’ve read the translation of The Heiress and the Chauffuer by Crimson Flower scans and it was really really enjoyable. It’s a touching servant/master cross-class romance. CF has removed it since it’s been licensed.
