Shueisha provides the following description of Kagijin:

The following is Anedoki's story summary:

And yet, seeing that Kota is in trouble, she forces him to let her stay at his house!? Who is this girl!? What does she want!? More than that, how about Kota's heart-pounding life with the beautiful older girl!? Can Kota control himself when confronted with her voluptuous body right before his eyes!?

Shueisha's shonenjump.com website is still serializing installments of Akira Toriyama's DragonBall manga (exclusively in color on the web) and Eiichiro Oda's One Piece manga.
