I keep piling the raws purchases and still have no time to screencapture them all. Today is a rare opportunity for me to update a little my Harlequin & Romance comic raws collection by adding a few Romance mangas that have been waiting in my hard drive for months, some of them for over a year. Yeah, I’m the laziest of the slackers.

Romance comics
First we have the Romance comics based on Western novels:

  • [Patricia K. Azeltine×SAKURAYA Hibiki]Temporary Husband
  • [Barbara Cartland×HANABUSA Yoko]Paradise Found
  • [Barbara Cartland×HANABUSA Yoko]The Wings of Ecstasy
  • [Barbara Cartland×KOBAYASHI Hiromi]The Innocent Imposter
  • [Barbara Cartland×MIYAMOTO Karin]Love in the Dark
  • [Janet Daily×HARADA Makiko]The Second Time
  • [Aimee Duvall×KISHIDA Reiko]One More Tomorrow
  • [Liz Grady×KOBAYASHI Hiromi]Reclaim the Dream
  • [Anne Hampson×MOCHIZUKI Reiko]Sweet Second Love
  • [E. M. Hull×HANABUSA Yoko]The Sheikh
  • [Valerie King×HASHIMOTO Takako]Wicked and Wonderful
  • [Jayne Ann Krentz×HASHIMOTO Takako]Trust Me
  • [Connie Mason×SAITO Chiho]Sheik
  • [Nora Roberts×HANABUSA Yoko]Tonight and Always
  • [Elizabeth Thornton×HASHIMOTO Takako]The Marriage Trap
  • [Patricia Waddell(gc4)×SANAZAKI Harumo]He Said Never

Then the original Japanese works:

  • [HAMAGUCHI Natsuko]Boku dake no Princess
  • [Kate Field×HANASATO Hikari]Kamen no Sheikh
  • [Sharon Andrew×NAGASAKI Maoko]Matenrou no Sheikh
  • [SAKAI Miwa]Millionaire lawyer likes redhead+A night at the ball
  • [SANAZAKI Harumo]Sheikh ni Koi no Hanataba wo
  • [Margaret Channing×TACHIBANA Kaya]Sabaku no Ou ni Dakaretara

Plus these 2 that are completing the Sheikh to ai no daiya series:

  • (sad2)[OGATA Rin]Aoki Hoshikage no Chikai
  • (sad3)[MAKI Shoko]Aoki Ryuusa no Kuchizuke
Details and samples for each manga can be read at the following pages:
► Harlequin comics raws: A-E | F-J | K-O | P-T | U-Z | Complete multi-author series
► Non-Harlequin manga raws: Adapted from Western works | Original Japanese works

If someone is interested in scanlating a story or more in that list, you can submit a request for the raws HERE.
But I suggest for English speaking scanlators to look preferably at the non-Harlequin manga list. The Harlequin comics are consistently translated into English by the publisher. So sooner or later, the one you’re interested in will get translated. Contrastingly, the non-Harlequin mangas are barely picked by anyone.

For the translators who’d want to scanlate extra pages not included in the translated versions released by the publisher, here you are.

There were promos at a place where I buy digital raws so I was quick to make use of the campaign to grab these Romance comics. I got a few surprises, the biggest one being Jasmine Craig’s Imprisoned Heart, illustrated by Isezaki-sensei. It’s the first Harlequin novel I remember reading in French. I was a teen at that time, around 11 or 12 years old. I never got hooked to Harlequin books before my 20s. But I do remember this one because among the 2 or 3 Harlequin books I read back then, it was different. And reminiscing about the story over 20 years later, I’d like to find again this novel and re-read it.

As usual, info and details about these Romance comics can be found at my Harlequin & Romance comic raws collection.
And if someone is interested in scanlating a story or more from that list, you can submit a request for the raws HERE.

Because my collection has grown so huge (there are over 350 mangas and I’m still buying more), I’ve decided that compiling all datas in 1 post isn’t the best solution. For some time already, the Harlequin & Romance comic raws collection page was taking forever to load.
So I thought about just making a text list so that the main page could appear faster and give links to pages with the detailed datas and samples. I should have switched to that text list long ago. Now that I look at it, it’s clearer for me to know what I actually have… and what I’d want to purchase in the future.

As usual, if someone is interested in scanlating a story or more in my Harlequin & Romance comic raws collection, you can submit a request for the raws HERE.

I bought lots of books this month. One day, I hope to be able to get all those manga adaptations based on Western romance novels. o (◡‿◡✿)
