To me, "Preferred Apache" hints as either some helicopter-centered story or 1 about Native Americans.

Crunchyroll announced in September that it will begin offering a new "Super Fan Pack" subscription tier that will also grant a subscription to J-Novel Club's service.

Just noting that while this statement is technically true, J-Novel has been removed from the FAQ regarding the "Super Fan Pack," even though an earlier version of the page FAQ listed them among the Fan Pack's available services. I haven't seen an official announcement regarding it, but speculation is that J-Novel will no longer be part of the Fan Pack.

Or webservers, since Apache is the most popular open source webserver. But you don't see a lot of manga about sysadmins and IT departments.

The "Terminix" one suggests bugs, but I don't know a title offhand that would match. Maybe if there were a manga of Starship Troopers?

I might add we announced we’d start doing manga back at anime expo!

But we are close to launching now. My hints are always pretty hard/impossible to guess unless you think like me.

That's a really good news, manga libraries that allow the read all their titles with a subscription is something that should be more developed however i hope it doesn't slow their LN release.

"Are we sure this isnt a touhou?"
- Ayakashiko ?
- Mononoke Sharing ? ( Yata is pretty much Reimu's clone )

oh god yes. I'm sure people will compare it to overlord but so far last boss is a lot more lighthearted while staying serious.

A quote that can pretty sum such a discussion up is "while I don't know what the titles will be yet until an official announcement is made, it's fun trying to figure which series those vague hints might be referring to".

I wouldn't mind if one of the manga was Last Boss, either. I've been very impressed with the series- it feels a lot more like a classic-style fantasy shonen, like 7 Deadly Sins or Violinist of Hameln, than the usual isekai formula. Would love to see it licensed in English
