HAGANAI: I DON'T HAVE MANY FRIENDS, vol 5, from Yomi Hirasaka and Itachi, due out January 2014



DICTATORIAL GRIMOIRE, volume 1 from Ayumi Kanou, coming out this September

Grimm Otogi, a farflung descendant of the renowned Grimm Brothers, has always regarded the fairy tales his ancestors concocted as pure fiction. Unfortunately for the introverted half-Japanese teen, he is about to discover that the Grimm legacy is anything but pure...

Upon receiving a posthumous letter from the father he never knew, Otogi transfers to a new school and moves into an abandoned mansion as part of his inheritance. There, he finds a manuscript that reveals the truth about his ancestors: the Brothers Grimm made a deal with mystical beings known as the Märchen Demons, who now have a claim on Otogi’s life. With a dashing male Cinderella as his guide, can Otogi Grimm unlock the power of the manuscript and stop the fairy tale demons before they destroy him first?


Vol 2 - due in January


Volume 3 - due in April 2014


KANOKON, omnibus 3 (volumes 5-6), from Katsumi Nishino and Rin Yamaki, due out in December

Innocent country boy Oyamada Kouta transfers to a big city high school in his freshman year, and from day one, his life enters a world of crazy. First, a beautiful second-year student named Chizuru professes her love to him, then reveals that she is in fact a fox spirit. Frisky and flirty, her suggestive teasing of naive Kouta in front of his classmates embarrasses him in to no end.

If that wasn’t enough, a gorgeous wolf spirit named Nozomu suddenly transfers to Kouta’s class and decides she wants the hapless country boy for herself. As fox girl and wolf girl vie for his heart, does Kouta have any say in this?


THE SACRED BLACKSMITH, volume 3, from Isao Miura and Kotaro Yamada, due out in December


A CENTAUR'S LIFE, volume 1 from Kei Murayama, coming out this November

Being a teenager is never easy... especially for a centaur! Himeno is a sweet, shy girl, who like many teens her age, struggles with the trials and tribulations of attending high school. The difference is she's a centaur; but she's not alone. In fact, all of her classmates are supernatural creatures, sporting either horns, wings, tails, halos, or some other unearthly body appendage. Yet despite their fantastical natures, Himeno and her best friends-the dragon-winged Nozomi, and Kyoko with her spiraled horns-are down-to-earth, fun-loving teenagers who grapple with issues of life and love in a mostly normal daily school setting.



Volume 2 is due in February
