Media service Crunchyroll announced on Friday that it will release four manga titles: Donyatsu by Yuusuke Kozaki, Tales of Wedding Rings (Kekkon Yubiwa Monogatari) by Maybe, Father and Son (Chichi to Ko) by Uchiko, and Aizawa-san Multiplies (Aizawa-san Zoushoku) by Seiichi Shiki. All four titles from publisher Square Enix will be available worldwide on Monday, June 1 at 8:00 p.m. EDT

Yuusuke Kozaki's surreal Donyatsu manga follows animal/snack hybrids in a post-apocalyptic world. Kozaki launched the manga in Square Enix's Young Gangan magazine in December 2011, and Square Enix published the fifth compiled book volume on April 25. The manga inspired a series of theatrical anime shorts.

Kozaki is arguable best known outside Japan for his design work in the Fire Emblem Awakening, No More Heroes, and Osu! Tatakae! Oendan games. He also created designs for the Speed Grapher anime, which led to his role as character designer for Sunrise's Bakumatsu Kikansetsu Irohanihoheto. He designed the virtual idol duo Meaw for the Starchild Records label.

Crunchyroll describes the "alternate world newlywed adventure" story of Tales of Wedding Rings:

When Sato's childhood friend Hime suddenly said good-bye, he chased after her and found himself in a fantasy world!! There Sato married Hime and became the legendary hero, the Ring King!! Dusk Maiden of Amnesia's Maybe brings you an Out-of-this-world newly-wed romantic comedy!!

The creator duo Maybe launched the manga in Square Enix's Monthly Big Gangan magazine in March 2014, and Square Enix published the second volume on May 25. Maybe has published both adult manga and manga for all ages. Their completed Dusk Maiden of Amnesia manga inspired a television anime in 2012. Maybe has also been serializing the Katsute Kami Datta Kemono-tachi e (To Beasts That Were Once Gods) manga in Kodansha's Bessatsu Shōnen Magazine since last June.

Crunchyroll describes the story of Father and Son:

The unpredictable and wild son, Shou. And the former gangster, hands-on father who looks out for him, You-san. Follow the lively father and son pair, as their everyday life is sure to eventful. Won't you take a peek at this slice-of-life, slapstick but easygoing father and son comedy?

Uchiko launched the manga in Square Enix's Monthly Shonen Gangan magazine in 2013, and has then been serializing it on the publisher's Gangan Online website. Square Enix published the fourth compiled book volume on May 22.

Crunchyroll describes the story of Aizawa-san Multiplies:

Expressionless and mysterious, Shino Aizawa is the fragile beauty in the class. She suddenly confesses her love to the main character, Souta Mizutani, but another Shino Aizawa appears thereafter… Twins…!? Or a doppelganger!? A fantasy romantic comedy by Seiichi Shiki, the creator of “Fujimura-kun Mates” begins here!!

Shiki launched the manga on the Gangan Online website in 2014, and Square Enix published the second compiled book volume on April 22.
