Heat Up Your Winter with Some Steamy February Catchups!


Celebrate the chocolate industry's scam holiday with these romantic or romance-adjacent catchup series for February!

If romance itself is too warm for you, She's the Cutest... But We're Just Friends! follows the just-friends antics of Kai and Jun, but maybe it's evolving somewhere? Get strapped in for a platonic ride... just bring some Mega Potions and Shock Traps too!

If you want some proper relationships, we've got a couple options for you! One of the age-old complications of romance is, well, age. So we have to ask... Are You Okay With a Slightly Older Girlfriend? If so, you might want to check out this series! If not... are you okay with manga? Because then you can check out The Tales of Marielle Clarac, which adapts the novel about the bespectacled lovers who each hide some... fascinating secrets.

And if you're after something a bit less... conventional, we've got you covered too! Bodyswapping and aliens? Two things sure to complicate any budding teenage romance! See how the Cultural Research Club fares in Kokoro Connect! Was age a problem for you? What if the elder one reincarnates a couple decades into the future first? Lyse suddenly finds out that The Emperor's Lady-in-Waiting Is Wanted as a Bride... and she knew that emperor in her past life! Finally, Jessica, an aspiring reporter is thrust into a world of apparitions and mystery, but will things ever slow down enough for anything to develop with her cameraman Jim?! Follow the scoops with Jessica Bannister!

Warm your heart with over 30 romance-related catchup volumes in February!
