Alright, October has started for me. I don’t believe I’ll continue updating the Harlequin comics releases in English. As an alternate option but I won’t keep doing this in the future, I’m gonna list the upcoming releases that I know about. Some will be out very soon, starting this thursday, October 2, and I assume the rest will be out in the following weeks. I don’t know which ones are released when, that’s the publisher’s decision.
Wait a few days or weeks before these mangas are listed at amazon and other ebookstores.

Upcoming HQc(Click on the picture to enlarge)

September has started. I don’t know if I’ll list all books yet or just those I notice from time to time, as there’ll be bi-weekly releases at Ballons & Chapters from now on. It’s too time consuming and real life and other hobbies occupy already a bit part of my time. At least for this month, I’ll try to list everything in a simplified version. But after that, I’ll see.
Wait a few more days to find them listed at amazon and other ebookstores later.

Arabian PearlYou know, Arabian Pearl is being scanlated by Decadence Scans, who have recently merged with their sister group Transcendence.

So the lovely ladies from Decadence/Transcendence have just released the second chapter of it. My, that’s one smutty part!
What am saying, the whole manga is smutty anyways!

Needless to say that I enjoyed greatly understanding the back story for those dirty bits. LOL.
Go to Transcendence have a look at the latest chapter if you haven’t yet, and thank the scanlator for their nice job.

Here we go with some of the Harlequin comics I bought this summer. There are still over 50 of them that I haven’t found the time to screencap yet.

Week 1


Week 2


Week 3

Released on August 27
Week 4


Balloons & Chapters have announced starting September, the releases for Harlequin comics will be out twice a week, on Monday and Thursday. I can’t keep up with so many updates and my other hobbies — I have a real life to live. So this month will be the last when I list all releases with their details. For the future, I invite you to go directly to Balloons & Chapters if you want to know a few days before they appear at other ebookstores which are the newest Harlequin comics in English. But if you don’t care for a few days, less than a week later, these digital mangas should be available at amazon.

HQcThe Prince’s Pregnant Bride
By Jennifer Lewis & HASHIMOTO Takako


[UPDATE 22/08/2014] Added chapter 15, 16, 17 and 18.

I like a lot Kouduki-sensei’s art style —so lovely art!
I don’t post often about what I actually collect — aside from Harlequin and Romance comics, of course! I tend to grab whatever I find on the Internet, dump it somewhere in my hard drive and forget about it until something comes up reminding me I did get it.

I’m presently following a few series online, like the works released in the Next comics web magazine. It started because I saw one day Fleur, by Nagato Kayo. I still don’t know what’s going on in this series. So if you’d like to write a summary, I remind you that I’ve posted the raws of the first 2 volumes (digital versions) somewhere — not telling and don’t ask, if you search a bit you can find where they are. I still haven’t purchased the 3rd book though plan to.

But I’m digressing. I don’t know if anybody has already mentionned Kouduki-sensei’s sheikh theme recent work. It looks like it was out in January this year. I’m tempted to buy the digital version when there’ll be one if nobody posts scans of the physical book until then. For now, I’m sharing the free chapters I’ve collected online. Since I can’t read Japanese, I’ve often wondered if those chapters are just samples or full chapters? Sometimes, they feel uncomplete to me.

Title: Kokuyou no Sheikh wa Ai wo Sasayaku
Author: KOUDUKI Rin

It’s been a while and I bought a lot of mangas. There are many promos at different sites so I just grab the Harlequin and Romance comics I don’t have yet in Japanese. Here are some of those latest acquisitions. Details, information and samples are available at my Harlequin & Romance comic raws collection page.

Maybe I’m in a foul mood, or maybe it’s that bad cold making me cough for over a month that’s turning me grumpy. I absolutly dislike Beyond Innocence illustrated by Takamure Tamotsu-san. It’s one of the rare Emma Holly’s novels I’ve read and liked. Even if I don’t expect a manga adaptation to be accurate, I barely recognize the story.
