In the two years since that post, Vertical has been the primary company carrying the flag of manga for adult women. They reprinted Paradise Kiss by Ai Yazawa in three omnibus volumes from 2012-2013, as well as putting out two stand-alone singles:
- In summer 2012, Sakuran: Blossoms Wild by Moyoco Anno (author of Happy Mania)
- In summer 2013, Utsubora: The Story of a Novelist by Asumiko Nakamura
Viz has also begun putting out mature shojo titles that could be considered josei. I found Happy Marriage?! (by Maki Enjoji, August 2013) disappointing because it was too much like Butterflies, Flowers, but Midnight Secretary (by Tomu Ohmi, September 2013) was more entertaining.
Just as a note, Bunny Drop concluded in August 2013 with book 9.
