Yomotsuhegui: Scions of the Underworld
By: Masasumi Kakizaki
Nawa Kanetsugu used to be a police officer, until his wife and child were murdered and he sought revenge by any means necessary. In a new quest for vengeance after he’s released from prison, he discovers that a mortal wound won’t kill him. A confrontation with a mysterious girl shows Nawa that he’s eaten the fruit of Yomotsuhegui, the tree in the realm of the dead, and now he’s an immortal with monstrous powers. The girl is a god of death who wants his help to fight other dangerous immortals, since there may still be a seed of justice in his heart. Will Nawa find his humanity again in saving others from supernatural evil, or will these ghastly powers turn him into a monster?
Yomotsuhegui: Scions of the Underworld will be released for the first time in North America in February 2024.
Obey Me! The Comic
By: Subaru Nitou and NTT Solmare
As school bells ring, a little sheep wakes up at the Royal Academy of Diavolo in the demon world Devildom–where seven eccentric demon princes await. This wooly critter is actually a human exchange student…so why are they so fluffy and cute, and why can’t they remember anything? Now, they must figure out how to turn back into a human and regain their memories as princes named Lucifer, Leviathan, and more raise hell with their devilish hijinks!
Obey Me! The Comic will be released in December 2023.
Reincarnated Into a Game as the Hero’s Friend: Running the Kingdom Behind the Scenes
A modern man is reincarnated into the world of a fantasy game he knows well: as Werner, the son of a powerful noble. The thing is, Werner isn’t the hero or even the villain–he’s a background character likely to die during a climactic siege! Werner seeks out and befriends the hero, but he doesn’t have powerful enough skills to be a hero himself. Unwilling to die as a later plot point, Werner uses his knowledge of the game and his power as a noble to aid the hero and defend against evil attacks. That’s when he realizes that when he does so, he saves other people who were doomed as he was, which changes the “plot” he thought was inevitable. As the hero’s close comrade who can see the future, perhaps Werner will be a savior to this place, after all!
The Reincarnated Into a Game as the Hero’s Friend: Running the Kingdom Behind the Scenes manga will be released for the first time in North America in February 2024, whereas the light novel will be coming on March 2024.
My Dog is a Death God
By: Mikito Chinen /Art by Ritsu Aozaki
Leo, a god of death, has been sent to save human souls at a small hospice called Okanoue Hospital. For this mission, he’s been granted a special form: one with four legs, a tail, and a keen sense of smell. Thanks to his canine assets, Leo can seek out patients at the hospice who are plagued by a lifetime of regret. With his endearingly wet nose and friendly, furry appearance, Leo eases patients into their next life, seeing them off from the quiet hillside hospital without the burden of lingering remorse.
My Dog is a Death God will be released for the first time in North America in December 2023,
Black Night Parade
By: Hikaru Nakamura
Hino Miharu will be spending this Christmas just like the last: alone and working a dead-end job. All he wants is good employment, but when he meets a Santa Claus dressed in clothes as black as coal, he has no idea he’s encountered the real deal…sort of. The Santa Claus dressed in red makes Christmas happen for good children everywhere, but his darker counterpart handles the holiday for the bad kids. As a name on the naughty list, Miharu is dashed away to work for the shadowy Santa. The pay and benefits are great, and his co-worker is cute–but will this end up being the dream job he’s wished for, or a nightmare of a Christmas?!
