Gorō Kanbe's Dirty Darling, more licensed

Tokyopop announced four new manga licenses, including three boys-love manga licenses, at its panel at Comic-Con International: San Diego on Saturday.

Title: Parham Itan: Tales From Beyond
Author: Kaili Sorano
Summary: [Parham Itan: Tales From Beyond] follows the mysterious adventures of two high schoolers, Yamagishi and Sendo, who accidentally find themselves entangled in occult conspiracies and a fantastical array of paranormal phenomenon plaguing their school, including a plant-faced monster that seems to be assimilating innocent victims around the area. With the help of an enigmatic paranormal investigator named Akisato, the two must set aside their many differences and work together to stop these preternatural perils from the world "beyond." According to the artist, this new manga series is heavily inspired by H.P. Lovecraft's Call of Cthulhu, as well as the tabletop role-playing game of the same title.
Premiere Date: February 2020 (for volume 1)

Title: Dekoboko Sugar Days
Author: Atsuko Yusen
Summary: Dekoboko Sugar Days is a fun, lighthearted romance between main characters Yuujirou Matsukaze and Rui Hanamine, who have been close since the two of them were young. At that time, Yuujirou was the one who stood up for and took care of his adorable, soft-hearted friend. As it turns out, however, Yuujirou's childhood dreams end up growing a little too big to handle — or, rather, too tall! At over six feet in height, the cheerful and happy-go-lucky Rui towers over his would-be protector... and still has no idea Yuujirou's had a crush on him since they were kids!
Premiere Date: February 2020
