Summary: When a request
flies in from the government enlisting the help of Yukito Ayatsuji, a top-ranked skill user
and detective notorious for his deadly skill, and Mizuki Tsujimura, a devoted newbie
agent from the Special Ability Agency, the unusual duo find themselves with more than
just an open-and-shut case on their hands… A must-read spin-off for all fans of the
popular Bungo Stray Dogs series!
Title: Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai (Seishun Buta Yarō wa Bunny Girl-senpai no Yume wo Minai)
Authors: Hajime Kamoshida (story), Tsugumi Nanamiya (art), Keeji Mizoguchi (design)
Summary: Bunny girls do not live in libraries. This
is simply common sense. And yet, that's exactly where Sakuta runs into one in the wild.
More bewildering is who the bunny girl is: Mai Sakurajima, an upperclassman and well-
known actress currently taking a break from industry work. Wanting to find out more
about the mystery surrounding Mai (and maybe get a little closer to her in the process),
Sakuta launches an investigation to figure out what's making this bunny girl invisible to
everyone around them.
Title: Seven Little Sons of the Dragon: A Collection of Seven Stories (Ryū no Kawaii Nanatsu no Ko)
Author: Ryōko Kui
Summary: Ryōko Kui, the master storyteller behind the beloved manga series Delicious in Dungeon, pens seven brand-new tales that will delight fantasy fans and manga devotees equally. Covering a broad range of themes and time periods,
no two stories in this collection are alike!
Summary: When a
vampire kingdom suddenly appears within the borders of Japan, a beautiful boy-meets-
vampire romantic comedy blooms from the mind of the creator of I've Been Killing Slimes for 300 Years and Maxed Out My Level! One fateful day, Ryouta wanders
into a town that's been declared sovereign territory by the rulers of the night, and
before he can blink, an adorable vampire pounces him. Now his only duty in life is to
serve her hand and foot as her minion in the hilarious, romance-filled days to come!
Summary: Shadowbrokers are those who go unnoticed, posing as unremarkable people, when in
truth, they control everything from behind the scenes. Sid wants to be someone just like
that more than anything, and something as insignificant as boring reality isn't going to
get in his way! He trains in secret every single night, preparing for his eventual rise to
power—only to denied his destiny by a run-of-the-mill (yet deadly) traffic accident. But
when he wakes up in a another world and suddenly finds himself at the head of an
actual secret organization doing battle with evil in the shadows, he'll finally get a chance
to act out all of his delusional fantasies! Coming to stores everywhere digitally and in
hardcover November 2019.
