The Darkest Night Vol. 1: Those crimson eyes look like they want nothing more than to turn this whole world to ash…. But I would die happy if he killed me right now. Ashlyn has a strange power: she hears the voices of the past that linger in this world. Since she was a child, she’s lived a noisy and lonesome life. But when she hears the rumors of angels living in an ancient castle in Budapest, she can’t help but venture into their forest. There, she sees a muscular man covered in fresh blood, a man who advances on her with murder in his eyes. But instead of fear, she feels a complete and total silence descend upon her. And an indescribable sense of security…

The Most Coveted Prize: Alena, the 19-year-old scion of a well-respected, old Russian family, falls in love at first sight with Kiryl, a man she met in the lobby of a high-class hotel. He cuts a devilishly stylish figure, so she has no idea that this man who wears an air of danger around him like cologne has painfully risen up from the slums to become a billionaire. With his sweet words and the simple press of his lips to the back of her hand, Alena readily offers up her body and her heart to him. She could have no idea, at the height of her happiness, that the dazzling pleasures he offers her are, for him, a means to revenge!

 

The Darkest Kiss Vol. 1: …So, will this ugly angel pull me out of chaos—? Long ago, beautiful, immortal warriors were created by the gods to maintain law and order in heaven. But these warriors fell – Now, housing demons within themselves, the warriors live on earth for centuries in solitary, waiting for the god’s grace. Anya, the goddess of anarchy, arrives in Budapest to check out on these rumors. Contrary to her beautiful appearance, wild Anya brings disaster and chaos wherever she goes. These warriors were just supposed to be a great time-killer; however…!?

 

Wife by Arrangement: Heather has been charmed by Lorenzo, a rich elite from Sicily. He’s a gentleman, but weak and powerless in the face of his overwhelming brother Renato. Suspicious that Heather may simply be after their fortune, Renato investigates and subjects the woman to a bizarre test, even going as far as to tempt her with a large sum of money. She refuses, and so he rewards her by ordering her to marry his brother…

 

Raintree: Haunted Vol. 1:  Hope Malory’s first day as a homicide detective isn’t going well. Not only assigned to her first gruesome murder, but also partnered to the infamously eccentric Gideon Raintree. Gideon is quite handsome, but a tad creepy, seemingly talking to the very air! Hope’s homicide investigation reveals some intriguing facts: the victims roommate is none other than Gideon’s cousin! With supernatural meddling, suspicious circumstances, and romance in the precinct, Raintree: Haunted starts off with a bloody bang!

 Ordinary Girl In A Tiara:  Vintage clothing lover Caro decides she wants an ordinary life with an ordinary man after a failed relationship with an upperclass, cheating fiance. But it’s terribly difficult to be ordinary when you’re friends with a princess! Caro is offered the chance of a lifetime: swap lives with her good friend Princess Lotty of Montluce! The catch? She needs to play the girlfriend to Lotty’s unwilling fiance, Prince Philippe. Lotty and Philippe have dreams of their own and marriage to each other isn’t in cards, but not if Dowager Blanche, Lotty’s grandmother, has anything to say about it! Swapping lives sounds all well and good, however if Caro and Philippe can’t play a convincing couple, it’s over! Philippe is as far from ordinary as he can get—not exactly Caro’s type. Can an eccentric fashion fan and a pompous prince pull it off in this dramedy of romantic deceptions? What happens when they both start to believe the lie?

The Greek Tycoon’s Defiant Bride:  Maribel has a crush on her cousin’s boyfriend, Leonidas, the Greek billionaire who constantly makes the tabloid headlines. She has a passionate one night stand with him, the day her cousin dies in a car crash! Maribel is convinced that she is nothing but a poor replacement for her cousin, yet she can’t help feeling hopelessly destroyed by Leonidas’s cold goodbye the morning after their tryst. Two years later, she is unexpectedly reunited with Leonidas, but she has a secret that she can never reveal to him. She had given birth to his child. Now, the truth has leaked to the paparazzi and tabloids alike!

Virgin Salve, Barbarian King Vol. 1: The beginning of the fifth century—the flourishing Roman Empire has been attacked by the Visigoths and is becoming a lawless state. Julia, the daughter of an aristocrat, escapes the chaos and conflagration that fills the town—but is then captured by the mob. A strong Visigoth man accompanied by a wolf saves her at the last minute. The man with the long blond hair is Wulfric, the King of Wolves! Julia thanks him, but he only takes her in his arms and says, “Rome is ours. And so are you.” Julia is abducted as a slave! A historical epic of love and fate!

The Tycoon’s Pregnant Mistress: Billionaire Chrysander Anetakis is known to the world as a rich Greek hotel magnate, but Marley Jameson knows him differently. They made passionate love whenever business took him to New York, but Marley’s hopes for future happiness are dashed when he tells her, “This isn’t a relationship. You’re just my mistress,” and kicks her out of his penthouse. Still reeling in shock, she fails to notice the kidnappers trailing her on that shadowy New York street. Chrysander thinks she has left him for good, until she is discovered three months later, suffering from amnesia, and pregnant to boot!

Her Sheikh Boss: Claudia is a hardworking personal secretary, working 24/7 for her arrogant boss, Samir, the CEO of a shipping company. The only reason she is so devoted to her work is that she is in love with her boss, who, despite his arrogance, is very charming. One day, Samir gives an unexpected gift to Claudia, who has been working so hard that she forgot her own birthday. The gift is an order to join him on a business trip to his home country in the desert. Is it going to be a romantic getaway for just the two of them? Or will it all fall apart when she finds out that he is a sheikh who is already engaged?

INTERVIEW WITH PUKU OKUYAMA

Author of Caramel, The Rule of Standing on Tiptoe, and Warning! Whispers of Love

 

 

 

 

 

1. What are some things you like to do while you work to help you concentrate?

I try several methods to help me concentrate, but mostly I listen to music or even sing to keep me on track. But silence also keeps me focused on my work as well.

2. Which manga(s) do you like reading?

I enjoy reading comedy manga.

3. What type of food do you like?

Pudding. I don’t have a hobby of making sweets but pudding I sometimes make them on my own.

4. How do you usually spend your days off?

I usually spend my days off by going to karaoke, spending time going out with my husband, or simply doing work.

5. There were many scenes within Warning! Whispers of Love where Nagura found Hajime to be “cute.” In your personal opinion, in what sort of situation(s) would you say that a guy is being “cute?”

I find men cute when they are enthusiastic about what they are doing and in high spirits because just watching them puts me be in a happy mood. I believe people who can be passionate at what they are doing have great talent.

6. When you are drawing, which part of the characters do you draw first?

I usually start off drawing from the face. Often in order I first start from the outline, the nose, the eyes/eyebrows, hair and then mouth. When I’m inking, I ink the facial features first then proceed to line the contour of the face.

7. What do you enjoy most about your job?

I enjoy painting the base colors.

A big THANK YOU to Mrs. Puku Okuyama for answering our questions and for the amazing work she has done.

But when an onslaught of horrifying demons suddenly begin targeting Marin and his peers, he must muster what little knowledge he has to try to save the lives of everyone around him. Although it’s clear things are becoming far from normal, it doesn’t seem like Marin is willing to change his mind…
Planet Ladder vol. 7: Now that Kura has captured me, I, Kaguya, have no idea what to do. I’m beginning to suspect that there is more to the events that have surrounded me than the Emperor wants to let on, and I’m beginning to feel that no matter what world I choose to save, the universe is doomed anyway. I only hope that my brother Kagami can send me some kind of a message or sign about what to do. And I hope that Bambi and Prince Seeu will be able to save me before it’s too late and Kura does something that will destroy us all….forever.
Blackmailed Beauties vol. 1: Eriko Nakagawa is a 26 year old, happy housewife with a successful husband and the body of a movie star despite the recent birth of her first child. Eriko thinks her incredible looks and her life are very ordinary and beneath notice. Slowly, Eriko realizes that many kinds of eyes are on her and her delectable body. First, there is the seemingly well meaning interest from her aunt and even her neighbors in maintaining her figure. That seems innocent enough until Eriko finds that she is the object of lust from mysterious strangers. That is very frightening on its own, but what is far worse in Eriko’s mind is that this attention is making her body feel good. As she is pushed into more and more outrageous acts with more and more young, hard bodies, Eriko fears being lost to the treacherous cravings of her own growing lusts.
