SYNOPSIS: As the last surviving member of her clan, Mirai Kuriyama was born with the ability to control her blood and wield it as a weapon, a power so terrifying she’s been cursed and cast out for the rest of her days. Akihito Kanbara’s blood is only half human, and while the healing abilities of the monstrous half of his lineage let him recover from any wound, it also dooms him to eternal life alone. Perhaps it’s more than just chance that has brought them together, for there are few bonds in creation as enduring as those written in blood. Now, in a world where the creatures of legend are real and nightmarish monsters tread the earth, they will seek out their destiny together in the complete collection of Beyond The Boundary.

SYNOPSIS: A funny thing happened when Chiyo Sakura worked up the courage to confess her feelings to her high school crush: he thought she was applying for a job as his art assistant. Because, unbeknownst to Chiyo, Nozaki secretly creates manga under a feminine pen name, and he’s badly in need of help. This is certainly not what Chiyo had hoped would happen but, since it’s at least a chance to get to know him better, she accepts. And then everything goes sideways when her new boss realizes that he can use his “really a girl” assistant to “research” how girls think and what they find romantic. Can an increasingly frustrated Chiyo pretend to be professional while a clueless Nozaki has all her buttons pushed in the right way for the wrong reasons? It happens when producing the Monthly Girls’ Nozaki-kun.

SYNOPSIS: Relationships are living things: if they’re not constantly nurtured, they can wither, die, or even worse. Haruto Soma, Mio Natsume, and Hazuki Morikawa are in their final semester at Kashiogawa High, and while there are some simmering undercurrents in how they feel about each other, the main focus in their lives is to keep studying until they get their diplomas. But into this perfectly reasonable plan falls a monkey wrench named Eita Izumi, who was their classmate and friend until his family moved away four years ago. Now Eita is suddenly back and fitting him into the current dynamic is going to be awkward. Because people and friendships can change, and when they do, there’s always the chance that someone will be hurt. Not because of malice or deliberate intent, just because that’s the way life can be. Just Because.

In fact, it’s been working horribly, because she almost always seems to outthink him. And the really disturbing part? He seems to be getting used to it. No, it’s worse than that. He seems to be getting used to HER. Like she’s worming her sneaky way into his brain. And is he… gasp… starting to care about her sometimes? Is that what their classmates think? Is that what SHE thinks? Exactly what is going on in her mysterious and calculating mind in Teasing Master Takagi-san Season 3?
