Manga publisher Denpa announced at Anime NYC on Saturday that it has licensed Masakazu Ishiguro's Heavenly Delusion and You Someya's Pleasure & Corruption manga.

The first volume of Heavenly Delusion (Tengoku Dai Makyō) is slated for April 30, 2019.

Ishiguro (And Yet the Town Moves) launched the manga in Kodansha's Afternoon magazine on January 25. The manga had an animated promotional video to commemorate the first volume's release on July 23.

The story is set in two distinct worlds. Tokio lives with other children inside a world surrounded by a beautiful wall, but one day he receives a message that reads, "Do you want to go outside?" Meanwhile, a boy named Maru travels with an older woman, eking out a meager existence in a ruined world as they search for "paradise."

The first volume of Pleasure & Corruption is slated for June 28, 2019.

Someya launched the manga in Square Enix's Young Gangan magazine in April 2017, and Square Enix published the third compiled volume in Japan on September 25.

The story follows a girl who likes bondage and a boy who has a habit of taking upskirt photos. When the girl catches the boy taking photos of her, she promises not to tell in return for him doing whatever she says.

Ed Chavez, former Vertical marketing director and most recently vice president of FAKKU, announced Denpa as a new North American manga publisher at Otakon in August. The company will have its own digital reading platform, and all of its titles will get print releases.
