Jigokumeguri Haru is rich, famous, and friendless. Thanks to her cold, stuck-up personality, she goes from school to school, looking for a place to fit in–but with no luck. When she crosses paths with Kawayanagi Tsurezure, she discovers that he gives her antisocial tendencies a run for their money. Has she finally found a kindred spirit?


The first volume of Plus-Sized Elf drops on October 9, 2018.




Naoe-kun, a massage therapist, is about to head home for the day when he’s saddled with a rather strange patient. This lovely lady has emerald eyes, pointy ears, and grew up in the forest–everything about her screams “elf,” except for one thing: her bodacious body. It turns out she left her world but loves junk food in this one, and now her obsession has caught up with her. Can Naoe-kun help this loveable elf girl lose the weight–and keep it off?


The Bride Was a Boy will be released in a single large-trim edition on May 1, 2018.




Drawn in the style of diary comics with an upbeat, adorable flair, this is a charming tale about Chii, a woman assigned male at birth. Her story starts with her childhood and follows the ups and downs of exploring her sexuality, gender, and transition–as well as falling in love with a man who’s head over heels for her. Now they want to get married, so Chii’s about to embark on a new adventure: becoming a bride!
