M&C! describes the We hope for blooming manga:
Mitsuki always wanted to have real friends, but she always had a tendency to be a loner. Even when she entered high school with the intent to not be a loner, she was largely unsuccessful. The only thing that made her happy was the cafe where she worked part-time.
One day, four super-cool guys showed up at the cafe where Mitsuki works, but they made her upset. When she finds out that they were all members of the basketball club at her school, her life begins to change!
Anashin launched the manga in Kodansha's Dessert magazine in 2014. Kodansha published the manga's fifth compiled book volume on July 13. M&C! has previously published Anashin's Secret Love Trip (Hiren Trip), Fall in Love With a Bad Boy (Akuma de Koi Shiyō), and Dream Love (Yumekoi) manga.
M&C! describes the There's Something About Nekota manga:
Because of her parents' work, Mikki's family always keeps moving. When she makes friends, she always says goodbye to them soon. That's why she's resolved not to make any friends at her new school. But this new school might hold new experiences for her. She meets a lot of good people... including a mysterious guy with the head of a cat?
Ōuta began the manga in Shueisha's Ribon magazine in 2013. Shueisha published the manga's eighth compiled book volume on June 24. The manga inspired an event anime that screened at the Ribon Festa 2015 event in May last year.
M&C! describes the You, I Love manga:
Rin has liked Yū since childhood. But due to being awkward and inexperienced in love, he didn't know how to express himself, so Rin has always turned to teasing her. Meanwhile, Yū has similarly always liked Rin, but her chronic shyness prevents her from telling Rin how she feels. Will they continue to just be friends forever even though they like each other?
Hoshimori launched the manga in Shogakukan's Sho-Comi magazine in 2015. Shogakukan published the manga's fifth compiled book volume on August 26. M&C is publishing Hoshimori's Between the Sky and You (Sora to Kimi to) manga, and has also previously published her Cold Heart (Kare wa Tsumetai Furi o Shite), Honey Vanilla Latte Please!!, Love Train (Katakoi Densha), Sweet and Sour Love (Ringo wa Koi Zuppai), Mysterious You (Himitsu na Kimi ni Koi o Shita), and When Mitsuba is in Love (Koisuru Mitsuba) manga.
M&C! describes the Mr. Mikami's Way of Love manga:
Natsume, at 16 years of age, has never had a boyfriend. That's because her neighbor since childhood Mikami is overprotective of her. To make matters worse, Mikami is now her new teacher in high school. Mikami might overly shelter her at home, but now at school of all places? This excessive attention isn't healthy anymore!
Aikawa launched the series in Kodansha's Bessatsu Friend magazine in 2014. Kodansha published the manga's third compiled book volume on August 12.
The Colors! manga centers on Mafuyu, a proper lady at home. But in reality, she is only hiding the fact that she is an idol otaku from her family. Frustrated by not being able to be herself, she decides to leave home on a whim and begin staying in a dormitory called "Colors!" There, unexpectedly, she is able to meet the idols she so adores, finding out that the place is a dormitory exclusively for idols.
Nakajima launched the manga in Shogakukan's Ciao magazine in 2014. Shogakukan published the manga's fourth compiled book volume on June 1. M&C! previously published Nakajima's The Two Side Trip (Yorimichi no Futari) manga.
M&C! describes the Mismatched Couple manga:
Koume, a freshman high school student, has always wanted to be "princess carried" by a guy. On the way to school one day, she meets Taisuke, an athletic guy who is big in sports, big in attitude, but is small in actual size. Their first impressions of each other does not go very well, and it only gets worse when Koume finds out that they're in the same volleyball club. Koume can't believe her bad luck with the guy, but for some reason, her heart won't stop pounding.
Mismatched Couple compiles three one-shot manga stories that Manako published in Kodansha's Bessatsu Friend magazine in 2014, including the title story. The book also includes the one-shots "Girl of Steel" and "Cotton Candy Boy." Kodansha published the book in April 2015.
M&C! describes the Young Lover's Festival manga:
Mutou has been elected as the vice chairman of the school festival committee in her school. But Muguruma, the chairman, is a lazy guy who keeps flirting with girls at school! Naturally, a mountain of problems begin to pile up between them, but a small chance between Mutou and Muguruma allows Mutou to find out where the awkward guy gets off on being so direct.
Mase launched the manga in Kodansha's Dessert magazine in 2014, and ended it in the same year. Kodansha published the manga's single compiled book volume in January 2015.
