Django doesn't detect initial migration when an app is a dependency

I have app A, and app B, neither of which have migrations defined (new project, new apps). app A imports a model as an FK from app B. I make app A's migrations with
./manage.py makemigrations app_a , and
app_a/migrations/0001_initial.py is created. In it, app B is marked as a dependency:
dependencies = [('app_b', '__first__'),] . If I try to run
./manage.py makemigrations app_b , I get
No changes detected in app 'app_b'
If I remove app A's migrations entirely, and re-run app B's makemigrations, I get an initial migration as I would expect.
