Yōsuke Kaneda’s Boarding School Juliet manga launched in the pages of Kodansha’s Bessatsu Shonen magazine in 2015. The series currently spans seven compiled volumes, with the most recent shipping to stores on March 16.
Kodansha Comics currently holds the rights to the manga in North America. They describe it as:
At Dahlia Academy, a prestigious boarding school attended by students of two feuding countries—the eastern Nation of Touwa, and the Principality of West—Romio Inuzuka, leader of the dorms’ Touwa first-years, wishes for a romance that can never be. For his ladylove is none other than his arch-enemy, Juliet Persia, leader of the dorms’ West first-years! Is Inuzuka ready to risk it all to confess his feelings? And even if Persia somehow agrees to go out with them, how long can they keep a forbidden relationship under wraps?!
