Title: Desert Eagle
Creator: Ken Wakui
Debut Date: July 5, 2022
Summary: Ichigo Washio is a young man with a bright future—a bright future, that is, within the gangs of Shinjuku. When he meets Ringo Takamizawa, a fellow student hell-bent on revenge on those who took everything from his mother, the gregarious Ichigo doesn’t think twice about helping Ringo—even when it means it’ll pit Ichigo against men he’s looked up to his whole life. But Ichigo knows he’s in the right, and with his new friends and a healthy dose of stupidity to guide him, he’s ready to return justice to Shinjuku’s streets.

Title: My Wonderful World
Creator: Mizuho Aimoto
Debut Date: July 5, 2022
Summary: Shinobu Asakura has never been able to read or write—and not for lack of trying. It’s made getting and holding down jobs difficult, and he’s constantly berated by people who think he’s simply slacking off when he’s just trying to keep up. But a chance meeting with a café worker who introduces a new word to Shinobu’s vocabulary—dyslexia—may just change the course of Shinobu’s life forever.

Title: My Maid, Miss Kishi
Creator: Kano Kashiwagi
Debut Date: July 12, 2022
Summary: Kiichiro Hayase has a reputation as the wealthiest, hottest, most eligible bachelor in town. But as they say… behind every successful man is the maid who keeps him from tripping over his own two feet. Enter Miss Kishi, the most competent, professional maid around—and the only thing keeping from Kiichiro quite literally crashing and burning. He owes it all to her, but can he ever make it up to her? He’s sworn to try… no matter how many things must get broken, scattered, or lost to do so.

Title: Hella Chill Monsters
Creator: Shuji Takeya
Debut Date: July 19, 2022
Summary: Not everyone wishes for a peaceful afterlife… least of all Bonzo Scalobania, whose dearest wish is to find a case for a skeleton detective like him to solve. Along with his unreliable assistant, Vampy Vinegret, and zombie frenemy/bounty hunter Nero Lichman, Bonzo swears to solve the problems of Limbo City. But does it still count if the problems he’s solving are ones of his and his friends’ own making? A wacky, weird, heartwarming tale for the undead in us all.

Title: My Tentative Name
Creator: Takeru Okutsu
Debut Date: July 26, 2022
Summary: Our protagonist awakes in a house he doesn’t know—in fact, not only does he not know where he is, he doesn’t know who he is. What he does know is that this unfamiliar house is empty, save for the body (and head) of a decapitated woman—a stranger, he thinks. He’s rescued by a woman, Shio, who calls him “Iori”… but is that who he really is? And when she helps him hide the body without batting an eye, telling him to trust her… can he? Should he?
