In this week's Thursday update, JManga adds, not one, but two gag manga strip collections set in the noble courts of Japan's Heian Period. Volume 6 of comedy mystery series Soredemo Machi wa Mawatteiru also makes its debut.
Kimino Tamenara Shineru Vol. 1
Created by KUZUSHIRO
Court Life in Heian Japan is peaceful and tranquil. Or not, so much, as slacker and blogger Sei Shonagon meets the Empress Teishi. Will Shonagon be able to control her libido? Will Murasaki Shikibu and Shonagon come to blows over which of their charges is cuter? Or will Japanese culture as a whole be destroyed by the hilarious goings-on of the Imperial Court? Kimi no Tame nara Shineru is a laugh-out-loud funny 4-panel gag comic about the literary lights of classical Japanese culture!

The time is the Heian Period, the place, ancient Kyoto. Rumor has it that Tomoe, the
daughter of a noble, is extremely shy. She almost never goes to social gatherings at Court,
preferring instead to shut herself away at home. But the truth is that Lady Tomoe makes
the most of her natural gift and burning curiosity, enthusiastically writing couplets... or
rather, tales of coupling, dojinshi (with the authority figure as the “top”). This is a story of a
lady’s friendship and fujoshi picture scrolls★
Soredemo Machi wa Mawatteiru Vol. 6
Created by Masakazu Ishiguro
At first glance, the shopping district of Maruko appears to be an average shopping street,
but it is here that this comedy of not a maid café, but a maid coffee shop unfolds.
