Burned Out Heroes
by big bear and artist Tierla
The discovery of a miracle substance called “anamnesis” that allows human brain waves to alter matter itself plunges mankind into an all-out war, the Anamnesisian Conflict. Cyborg 01 (ZeroOne), a hero of the war, now wanders through its aftermath, roaming from place to place with Karen, a girl with the power to bend digital networks to her will.
The pair visit a massive artificial island dubbed the “Soul Settler” during their travels. A request to look into the disappearance of Erde Hadias, the daughter of a Federation Parliament member, awaited 01 upon arrival. A colossal conspiracy lurked behind the scenes, however, and now the two of them are in the eye of the storm.
It’s My First Time Working Late Nights at a Convenience Store, and If I Keep Getting Demon Lords, Kappa and Other Oddballs as Customers, I’m Giving My Two-Weeks’ Notice
(Shinya no Convini Baito Hajimeta kedo Maou toka Kappa toka Henna Hito ga Kisugite Tsuduketeijkeru Jishin ga Nai) by Gaia and artist MACOZI
On his first ever graveyard shift at the local convenience store, Haru Muramatsu has to contend with a genuine, albeit out-of-touch, demon lord. His clientele only gets weirder from there, ranging from kappa to kuchisake-onna. Each chapter brings new challenges for the snarky (but secretly altruistic) cashier, and no two customers are the same!
I’m Taking Revenge for My Murdered Classmates Using Weapons Made from Their Souls
(Classmate wo Zenin Korosareta Ore wa Sono Tamashii wo Bukini shite Fukushū Suru) by Akiraizun and artist Tsuiru
During a school trip, my classmates and I are suddenly dragged into the middle of a raging war. A crazy woman tells us that we’re on another planet and won’t be able to return to Earth unless we take back a castle from the enemy. She grants us powers to do battle, but while all of my classmates obtain powerful skills, I can’t seem to activate mine. That’s because my skill is the ability to turn my dead classmates’ souls into weapons.
Thus begins a grand tale of a banished man taking revenge for his murdered classmates.
