Before he knows it, he’s face-to-face with the god of this new world, who presents him with a list of cheat skills to choose from…but there’s a catch. It’s first come first served, and his classmates have already beaten him to the punch. Haruka has to make do with what he can get as he navigates his way through this brave new world, all while flying solo!
Sakurai Shinichi''s one wish is for a little peace and quiet. But Uzaki Hana--his boisterous, well-endowed underclassman--has other plans. All she wants is to hang out and poke fun at him. With the help of her chipper charm and peppy persistence, this might just be the start of a beautiful relationship! Fans of slice-of-life comedy are sure to enjoy this new "odd couple" tale about misadventures in a college setting.
After evolving into a thrall, Rentt explores an unmapped part of the dungeon and encounters a mysterious woman. In exchange for his discretion, she gives him a treasure called the Map of Akasha, but before he can learn anything about her, she warps him out of the dungeon.
However, meeting her may just be the least of his worries. On his quest to become a Mithril-class adventurer, he must first pass... the Bronze-class Ascension Exam.
His new life as an undead adventurer is finally beginning!
I can't even guess myself what it must be to live the life of a human being.
Plagued by a maddening anxiety, the terrible disconnect between his own concept of happiness and the joy of the rest of the world, Yozo Oba plays the clown in his dissolute life, holding up a mask for those around him as he spirals ever downward, locked arm-in-arm with death.
Osamu Dazai’s immortal―and supposedly autobiographical―work of Japanese literature, is perfectly adapted here into a manga by Junji Ito. The imagery wrenches open the text of the novel one line at a time to sublimate Yozo’s mental landscape into something even more delicate and grotesque. This is the ultimate in art by Ito, proof that nothing can surpass the terror of the human psyche.-- VIZ Media
Also included are six tales of Oshikiri—a high school student who lives in a decaying mansion connected to a haunted parallel world. Uncanny doppelgangers, unfortunately murdered friends, and a whole lot more are in store for him.
Bonus: The Ito family dog! Thrill to the adventures of Non-non Ito, an adorable Maltese!-- VIZ Media
Having awoken in the Labyrinth of the Moon's Reflection as a Skeleton after being consumed by a dragon, Rentt has finally obtained a body with some flesh on it, all thanks to the phenomenon known as Existential Evolution. When he returns to investigate an uncharted path within the labyrinth, however, a magic circle trap is set off, teleporting Rentt to an unfamiliar place. The room he finds himself in is none other than the deepest part of the Moon's Reflection—the boss chamber.
Who will win? A Giant Skeleton powered by the very energies of the labyrinth itself, or a Ghoul with the experience and weapons of an adventurer? Amidst this intense battle, Rentt feels an overwhelming sensation taking over...
The second volume of Rentt's reanimated adventure to become a Mithril-class adventurer!
"How to Draw Manga: Basics and Beyond!" is the latest in Manga University's lineup of best-selling instructional books.
The book features more than 1,000 illustrations drawn by Japanese manga artists whose work has appeared in leading publications, including Shonen Sunday and Young Jump. You will learn how to draw like a professional because your teachers are professionals.
We've divided the book into four easy-to-follow chapters that will have you drawing original characters from head to toe in no time at all:
Heads First! We begin at the top, with a chapter on how to draw heads. After all, heads are the first thing most people notice, in both art and out in the real world. And in art, just like in the real world, you want to make sure your characters make a vivid first impression ... whether they're completely human, or totally out-of-this-world.
Let's Make Faces! The expression the eyes are the window to the soul is particularly true when it comes to manga. You can tell a lot about a character's personality by peering into their eyes. In this chapter, we explain the basics of drawing eyes. But we don't stop there. We also cover noses, mouths, ears, and hair.
All About Bodies! Once we've covered faces, we move on to teaching you all all about drawing bodies. We go over the differences between male and female body proportions, count heads to determine the heights of our characters, and learn how to draw hands, arms, feet, and legs.
Strike a Pose! Our book's final chapter is all about making a physical statement. We show characters standing tall, sitting down, throwing punches, giving hugs, and more. Because even beautifully drawn characters look boring if they're frozen stiff.
The book also includes a section on manga tools. Plus, you'll get to know the artists who contributed to the book through exclusive interviews in which they talk about their favorite manga and anime series, hobbies, how they work, and more!
