Josei Titles

#
Josei: (Target Group) (↗josei (女性) = "woman"; opposite of "Seinen") Josei manga is a term that refers to the target demographic of manga created mostly by women for late teenage and adult female audiences. The stories tend to be about everyday experiences of women living in Japan. Though there are some that cover high school, most cover the lives of adult women. The style also tends to be a more restrained, realistic version of Shoujo manga, keeping some of the wispy features and getting rid of the very large sparkly eyes. There are exceptions in the style described above, but what defines Josei is some degree of stylistic continuity of comics within this particular demographic. The same is true with different demographics that have different stylistic tendencies. See also: ↗Wikipedia:Josei.

Hachimitsu to Kuroba
Rent A group of college students happily share their small apartment together. While they struggle in poverty, they find joy in each others company and in the small things in life. But their precious and treasured world grows larger with the appearance of Hagumi (a young blonde girl with incredible talent as sculptor), and expands again by the importance of Rika (a widowed architectural designer). And slowly the world they hold so dear begins to change.

Hachimitsu to Kuroba II
Buy Mayama is in love with Rika-san, the owner of Harada Design. Yamada is in love with Mayama. Takemoto is in love with Hagu-chan. So is Morita-senpai. Hanamoto-sensei is keen on protecting Hagu-chan. And together, they are a group of friends who've spend several years together. However, times are changing. Only Hagu-chan and Takemoto remain as student at the art college. Mayama gets hired by Rika-san. Yamada does her pottery work at the school, which gets her work with Rika-san and Mayama's old company, Fujiwara Design. She is now heavily pursued by Fujiwara Design employee Nomiya, who's determined to get her over Mayama. Morita and his brother Kaoru continue their work to raise large amounts of capital. And Takemoto works to finish his project before he joins the workforce as a temple restorer. With life moving on, will Rika-san give into Mayama? Will Yamada win over Mayama or end up with Nomiya? Will Hagu-chan choose Morita-san or Takemoto-kun?

Hachimitsu to Kuroba Specials
Rent In "Chapter L", Takemoto asks Mayama and Morita about a vacant room in the apartment building, and is told about an amazing senpai named "Lohmeyer". "He was a wonderful person" Mayama explains, "serene as the northern plains... powerful, lustrous, and... juicy"? Likewise, Takemoto later notices a poster advertising a "Legendary Hero Search" and Mayama tells him about a costume-wearing theme park employee who once held that title; a person with "manliness flowing out of him, even when covered with fur". "Chapter F" involves "the story of the Fujiwara Design Office before Mayama-kun began working there". The mischievious Miwako buys a "ridiculous" shirt for fellow worker Yamazaki as a prank--and he is immediately acclaimed "The King of Fashion". Miwako cannot tolerate a failed practical joke, and thus begins a never-ending search for tasteless clothing...
