Seven Seas describes the story:
What would have happened if the Human Instrumentality Project--from the final two episodes of the original Neon Genesis Evangelion anime--had never reached fruition? This official light novel series explores just that, allowing Shinji Ikari and the pilots around him to age three years and face a different future.

Deep in the forest lies a mysterious school of magic: Wizdoms, an institution attended by beastmen of all kinds. These studious fantasy creatures have come to live, learn, and perhaps even fall in love in this enchanting space. In this collection of BL stories by master mangaka Nagabe, follow the beauty and surprising humor of magical beasts with human hearts.
Nagabe (The Girl from the Other Side: Siuil A Run) drew the manga and Akane Shinsha published the single volume in October 2018.

In a land populated by demons, Nicola stands out: she's a human girl traveling with her demon friend Simon. The spirited Nicola often gets in over her head, but she's got her own magic powers to help her out when things get tough!
Miyanaga launched the manga in Kadokawa's Harta magazine in March 2017. The first volume shipped last January and the second will ship on January 15.
Seven Seas will release the firstprint and digital volume of The Brave-Tuber (Haishin Yūsha) on September 10.
Seven Seas describes the story:
For the most part, Wisdaregidor is your typical fantasy world: monsters wreaking havoc, taverns packed with gung-ho adventurers, and a demon overlord looking to rule it all. But Wisdaregidor has one thing you'll never find in Middle-earth: the Internet! Zane and Kuku are two adventurers trying to build a fanbase. The pair will do whatever it takes to get more subscribers for their streamed videos, even if it means taking on the demon lord himself!
Ikuro draws the manga and Oosaki is credited as the original creator. The manga launched in February 2018 in Mag Garden's Comic Garden magazine. The first compiled volume shipped on November 5.
