School Zone (Manga Series)
School Zone by Ningiyau is a quirky yuri comedy about the chaotic daily life of high school girls! Yokoe and Sugiura have been together forever, and they’ve mastered the art of making trouble when life’s a bore. High school might be a drag, but these girls in love know just how to inject a little chaos and comedy into their sloppy school life.

The Tale of the Outcasts (Manga Series)
The Tale of the Outcasts by Makoto Hoshino is an engrossing new fantasy manga series in which a downtrodden orphan girl develops an unexpected friendship with a beastly immortal. Wisteria is an orphan girl living in a corner of the British Empire at the end of the 19th century. Her life is desolate and bleak–until she encounters Malbus, a powerful but equally lonely immortal being with a furry appearance, hounded by hunters. Together, Wisteria and Malbus roam the Empire–populated by humans and human-like beasts–in search of a place where they can live together in peace.

Magical Angel Creamy Mami by Emi Mitsuki is a modern continuation of the classic, genre-shaping magical girl anime! Life gets super rough for idol Megumi Ayase when starlit (and magical!) Mami joins her agency and inadvertently usurps the top spot. Rather than backing down, Ayase leans into her jealousy and will stop at nothing to reclaim her throne…all while still doing her best to be a good senpai!
