Here’s the official synopsis: When was the last time I played a game that wasn’t bullshit?” This is a world in the near future where games that use display screens are classified as retro. Anything that can’t keep up with cutting-edge VR technology is called a “nonsense game” and you see a huge number of crap games. People who dedicate their lives to clearing these games are called “nonsense-game hunters”, and Rakuro Hizutome is one of them. The game he has chosen to tackle next is Shangri-La Frontier, a “god-tier game” with a total of thirty million players. Online friends… A vast world… Encounter with rivals… These are changing the fate of Rakuro and all the other players! The best sports adventure story by the strongest “nonsense game” player begins now!
Skip and Loafer (TBD)
Here’s the official synopsis: Iwakura Mitsumi graduated from a small middle school in the countryside and entered a top-tier high school in Tokyo at the top of the class. This prodigal kid, who moved to Tokyo alone with a perfect life plan, is smart and gets good grades… but his social understanding isn’t on the same wavelength as the others. That means she makes mistakes sometimes, but her easygoing nature impresses her classmates little by little, and all of their different personalities are coming together before they know it. They meet and gradually get to know each other, and before long they understand each other very well. Everyone experiences suppressed feelings and frustrations, but it is our friends who give us a chance for mutual understanding. This story may start off with some bickering, but before you know it, it turns into a comedy of a happy school life!
