Seven Seas will release the first volume of Jun Ogino's Semelparous yuri manga both physically and digitally in December. It describes the manga:
Ever since they were young girls, best friends Yorino and Haruka have been training to become Bastioners–soldiers who battle in a walled area that protects humanity from the kaiju trying to break through. But when Haruka is killed during a routine exercise, Yorino must fight even harder to make sure she never loses someone close to her again.
Ogino launched the manga in Ichijinsha's Comic Yuri Hime magazine in November 2019, adapting it from an earlier one-shot manga titled "Tagai no Guardian" (Each Other's Guardian), which Ogino published in Comic Yuri Hime in September 2016.

Seven Seas describes the manga:
When a “god” tells Tsukina that she is to be transported to another world to become its savior, Tsukina isn't interested. As a bookish thirty-something, she has zero desire to go on some big adventure…so when she arrives in the strange new land, she decides to use her magical powers to create a cozy little book café instead. But when a fellow “savior” starts causing trouble, Tsukina might just have to play the hero, after all!

Gamo Shoya is a dead man. At least, he was Gamo Shoya–inside his body resides the soul of someone else, murdered but brought back to life in his body. Now a student living a life that's not his own, Shoya is haunted by Armelina, a beautiful demon succubus who has given him a new role: hitman. She can't kill humans directly, but she can use Shoya to hunt and kill the wicked who prowl the streets, leaving their departing souls ripe for Armelina to devour. In exchange, she'll help him hunt down whoever killed him in the first place. It's a dark path for Shoya. The only thing he has left to lose is…his soul.
