Yen Press describes writer Dachima Inaka and illustrator Pochi Iida's Tsuujou Kougeki ga Zentai Kougeki de ni Kai Kougeki no Okaa-san wa Suki Desuka? (Do You Like Your Mom? Her Normal Attack is Two Attacks at Full Power) novel series:
Masato thought he was part of a random survey, but when he gets involved in a secret government scheme, he winds up trapped in the game world. Even more surprising—his mother's there, too!
Yen Press is aiming to release the first volume this winter.
Maitya launched a manga adaptation on Kadokawa's Young Ace Up in October, and is also serializing on Comic Walker. Kadokawa has released a web RPG and promotional voice clips with Ai Kayano as the titular mother character.
Yen Press describes Takuto Kashiki's Hakumei and Mikochi (Hakumei to Mikochi):
Kashiki. Deep within a lush, green forest live Hakumei and Mikochi. Making their home in trees, using leaves for umbrellas, and riding bugs for transportation are just part of daily life for these tiny spirit pals!
Kashiki has been serializing the manga in Kadokawa's harta magazine (previously known as Fellows! magazine), and Kadokawa published the sixth compiled book volume of the manga in January.
Yen Press describes Tadataka Kawasaki's Chio-chan no Tsuugakuro (Chio's School Road) :
For Chio Miyamo, just making it to school is a miracle! Whether it's construction sites, biker gangs, or the sudden call of nature, obstacles great and small stand in the path of our titular hero!
Kawasaki launched the manga in Kadokawa's Monthly Comic Flapper magazine in 2014, and Kadokawa published the manga's eighth compiled volume on March 23. The manga won the "Flapper Award" at the ninth "MF Comics Awards."
The comedy manga is inspiring an anime that will premiere in July.
Yen Press describes writer Amahara and artist masha's Interspecies Reviewers:
Beauty truly is in the eye of the beholder! From elves to succubi to cyclopes and more, the Interspecies Reviewers rate the red-light delights of all manner of monster girls…the only thing is, they can never agree on which species is the hottest!
The manga ran as a special one-shot in Kadokawa's Monthly Dragon Age in July 2016, and Kadokawa released one volume last September. The manga won the DLsite Award in Da Vinci magazine and Niconico's Tsugi ni Kuru Manga Awards
Amahara previously drew the 18+ comic Ishufūzoku Cross Review on pixiv.
Yen Press describes Sakuraneko's Choujin-Kokoseitachi wa Isekai demo Yoyu de Ikinuku Yodesu! (Super Human High Schoolers Are in Another World, But Seem to be Living in Comfort!) manga:
Seven extraordinary high school students caught in an airplane accident wake up in a medieval fantasy world where magic and beast-men exist. But they don't panic—instead, they build a nuclear plant in a world without electricity, control the economy of a large city, and declare war on the evil nobles!
Yen Press is aiming for an October release for the first volume.
The manga adapts Riku Misora's novel series, illustrated by Kotaro Yamada. SB Creative published the first novel in October 2015 and the sixth volume in December 2017.
The manga adaptation launched in Square Enix's Young Gangan magazine in May 2016. Square Enix published the fourth volume in 2017.
