Romantic Comedy Shoujo Manga Guide – 2017

I’m looking for new series to read all the time. If you are a voracious reader, like I am, you can read an entire 20+ series in a week. I see all the time where readers are begging for recommendations on tumblr. So I thought it would be helpful to have a list of series that are licensed in English for fans to reference.

This list includes available titles from all publishers in North America. It DOES NOT include non-licensed titles only published in Japan. Each title will have a link to the series on the publisher’s site. I will also include any titles at the end of the list that fit the category and have previously been published in NA, but may be out of print at this point. Also included are digital-only titles.

Alright, onto the list. Here are the titles that fall in the Romantic Comedy genre of manga available in English in North America:
