When I saw My Secret Affection my first thought was "Lol they turned A World Where Gay is the Norm and Straight a Minority into a manga" but turns out the manga was cancelled/the author ended it early due to a lot of super mysoginistic comments they made Confused

Edit:
Well, turns out Seven Seas is having a queer translator work on the series and they say that they enjoy it despite the author's comments so I guess the content probably isn't as bad as the author's opinions

Backstabbed in a Backwater Dungeon: My Party Tried to Kill Me, But Thanks to an Infinite Gacha I Got LVL 9999 Friends and Am Out For Revenge


Sadly, sounds like they made the plot summary into the title, still I am a sucker for revenge stories, so I will pick this up, despite how out there it sounds like.

Also, what happens when all your level 9999 friends decide they totally outclass you (like gods vs serfs) and you have nothing in common anymore.

I never thought the Polar Bear's Cafe manga would be licensed. As someone who is a big fan of the anime, I'm so excited for this release.

I’ve asked for Polar Bear Cafe in a few of Seven Seas’ licensing surveys, so I’m quite happy about this news. Thank you so much, Seven Seas!

Been waiting for Polar Bear's Cafe!!! Wish we could get the anime on Bluray, yet I understand the copyright stuff and all.
