Shadows House

Story and art: so-ma-to




Shadows House—a strange mansion that receives no callers, inhabited by a race of faceless shadows who play at being aristocrats and are waited on hand and foot by “living dolls,” who also serve as their masters' faces. What goes on inside this enigmatic manor is anyone's guess, but soot and shrieks billow up from within…


Mato Seihei no Slave

Story: Takahiro

Art: Yohei Takemura




Otherworldly spaces known as “demon cities” appeared in various parts of Japan, and those who partook in the “peaches” growing there gained unique abilities—but only if they're girls. One day, a down-in-the-dumps high school boy named Yuuki Wagura suddenly gets lost at the entrance of a demon city. There, he meets Kyoka Uzen, the beautiful leader of the seven programs of “Magical Defense Corps,” who orders him to become her slave?!


Light Novel


Yokohama Station SF National

Story: Yuba Isukari

This follow-up volume to the science fiction hit sheds light on the history of Yokohama Station and people all across Japan through a series of short stories. “Kyoto” tells the tale of a struggle against the information warfare of the station monitoring systems. “Gunma” details the collapse and reconstruction of Yokahama Station. In “Kumamoto,” people tolerate violence and mistreatment in exchange for safety from the looming threat of the station. Finally, “Iwate” follows a spy's escape to an unknown region of the north.
