Crunchyroll Adds "Okitenemuru" and "Star Light Woman" Manga Simulpubs

Both series available at Crunchyroll Manga now

Crunchyroll’s growing selection of manga gains two new additions today as “Okitenemuru” and “Star Light Woman”, both from Japanese publisher Futabasha, are now available for your reading pleasure at Crunchyroll Manga.



Okitenemuru is the new title from Hitori Renda, best known for the best-selling manga "King's Game," known in Japan as Ousama Game. AND, since this is a brand-new title, you’ll be able to enjoy it from the very beginning, starting with Chapter 1, the same as the folks in Japan get it.



Kanata and his friend Tokiji are ordinary teenagers in modern Japan. Mysterious deaths have begun to occur in their city, where the victim's head will transform into an animal face and explode. There are rumors about these strange incidents, but one day it happens at Kanata's school. Kanata is caught up in the incident and gains the special ability to "remove his limiter". This allows him to greatly enhance a single ability of his, but after he uses it, another ability will go out of control. He encounters a mysterious, beautiful woman in a black skin-tight combat suit named Shiki. She forces Kanata and Tokiji to become deeply involved in these incidents. Just what is going on? What mysterious organization is behind this!? A world-spanning conspiracy begins to unfold.
