Lover Pretend (NSW/Fall 2022) – Chiyuki lives alone, spending all her time studying for university and doing part-time work. She has two dreams in life: One is to become a scriptwriter—also a dream of her late mother—and the other is to find her father whom she never met. From leftover clues, it seems her mother was writing a drama script before she was born. Chiyuki lands a job as a scriptwriter assistant for a film that the sons of the drama staff are making. She searches for information while working her new job, but in a twist of events ends up cast in the role of their love interest…? This is a pretend love role, not true love. Can Chiyuki create a script about fake lovers, while not knowing anything about falling in love herself?

Paradigm Paradox (NSW/Fall 2022) – The year is 25XX, a world where mankind lives only in isolated colonies. The protagonist, a student at the academy, is bored with the drudgery of everyday life, a day-to-day existence untouched by gossip about “Heroes” and “Vermin,” the enemy of mankind, and unnoticed by the good-looking guys at the academy. One night she slips out of the dormitory and encounters colony-invading Vermin, landing herself in danger! Four girls appear suddenly and repel the Vermin with miraculous abilities. The protagonist decides to work as a Hero, leading a busy life as both a student and champion of justice. But why is it that she has more opportunities to talk to the good-looking guys everyone is gossiping about…? What is their (the girls’ / guys’) secret…? And what is the enemy’s true identity…?

Kimi wa Yukima ni Koinegau [English title pending] (NSW/2023) – The first year of the Kyoho era. The land is ruled by the eighth shogun Tokugawa Yoshimune. Repeated incidents caused by monsters in the town of Edo upset and frighten the people so the Tokugawa shogunate establishes the “Oniwaban” to maintain public order and secure the town. Seasons pass—to year 11 of the Kyoho era. A girl in a village far from Edo has the power to see a “black thread” before every catastrophe and the panicked villagers drove her away into the snowy mountains. One day, two young men from the Oniwaban, appear before her. This is a story in which a girl encounters “non-humans,” and learns about love.

Further details relating to each of these titles will be shared in the near future.
