HELSINKI, FINLAND, Nov. 1, 2012 - Digital manga distributor Amimaru is publishing Yoshino Koyoka's manga Yami Kyun!

The series has been running in Nihonbungeisha's magazines Sakura Hearts and Comic Heaven since 2011. The ongoing series is currently one volume long.

Amimaru is publishing the manga in its Facebook reader app that is currently in open beta. The price of one chapter is 12 Facebook Credits (conversion rate varies by region).

By day, Miya Akatsuki is just a slightly grumpy and unsocial girl studying in St. Margaret's Girls' College. But by night she's secretly a Final Executor – an ultimate debt collector who can make even the shadiest debtors click the "accept" button on the payment warrant. The debt collection agency she works for, however, is a slightly different than normal ones.

Haruki Kobayashi, a boy working in the electronics store of his family, becomes affiliated with Miya after accidentally witnessing her at work. She and her two colleagues end up moving to Haruki's home as part-timers to keep an eye on him. Gradually Haruki starts to learn about the painful loss that made Miya want to obtain power.
