Monthly Updates – June 2017.

This series is centered around the monthly updates of different OLEVNs being developed with an emphasis on romance or if the protagonist(s) is/are female. Otome games in development or that have been released will also be mentioned, but as a secondary focus. Due to the abundance of the mobile games and blogs that already follow their releases, I will only mention new mobile games releases.

Take a look around and hopefully you find something the piques your interest!
