We have over 1000 manga titles on eManga, but did you know we also carry novels? With a growing light novel selection, fill up your fall days with a good book and a hot cup of coffee. So for this week, celebrate the oncoming fall season with 20% off select DMP and DMG novels from 09/06 to 09/13!

No matter what device you use, we have 7 different file types! That includes the ever popular ePub, Mobi, PDF, and more!

Onto our new releases for eManga:

Marin Vol. 1: Hayami Marin is a boy with incredible magical abilities, yet he wishes only to live a normal life and is always trying to avoid training with his grandfather, a powerful and prestigious magician himself. 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.
Aria the Scarlet Ammo (novel): Tokyo Butei High School— A special school where armed detectives, also known as “Butei”, receive education as well as training. Kinji Tohyama, a sophomore, has a unique body that can initiate an ability called “hysteria mode” when it is stimulated a certain way. He tries to keep it a secret but all his dreams of living the life of an Average Joe get shattered when he becomes a victim of a bombing incident and meets Butei High “Assault” department elite, Aria H. Kanzaki.
