Junjo Romantica by Shungiku Nakamura


I heard Junjo Romantica vol.8 was published on Feb 1.
I haven't bought it, though. I have #1-#7. This cover is #7.

Junjo Romantica is very sweet story. I like it. Sure yaoi, you know.

The main theme is the love story of Akihiko Usami & Misaki Takahashi. And it contains love stories of surrouding characters. Usami is so famous, popular, cool and rich novelist. But he is funny a little. Misaki is his friend's brother and his lover. He calls Usami 'Usagi (rabbit in Japanese)'. It's Kawaii!

So some yaoi novels were published as Usagi's novels. The title is 'Junai Romantica' series and 'Junai Egoist' series. Junai Egoist series is the love story of Hiroki Kamijo & Nowaki. Hiroki is Usami's childhood friend. Nowaki is his lover. This is a harassment against Hiroki from Usami in a way. Actualy yaoi novelist Miyako Fujisaki writes them.

For your information, 'Junai' means 'pure love' in Japanese. 'Junjo' means naive or pure-hearted.

I really like this series as well. Volume 2 in English will be available this month - soon! I'm looking forward to reading it. I wish I could read the novels.

Thank you for your comments!
Oh, vol.2 will be published in English?

I guess the novels will be translated into English if the English version is popular.

In the story, Usami and Misaki are lovey-dovey couple. It's Usami's desire! Misaki doesn't like it, though. It contains a few pages manga of the situation.
