Via artbomb, an interesting if superficial story from the BBC about how Harlequin is successfully publishing manga adaptations of its romance novels in Japan, to reach younger readers who don't like to read novels. (The story refers to Harlequin as Mills and Boon, the name it goes by in Britain.) While I've never seen an actual Harlequin manga, the store where I buy my used manga has a large selection of single-volume manga that are the equivalent of romance novels. I actually own one of these (I got it for free), and someday I hope to review it.
