Velvet Kiss (2 volumes) – Chihiro Harumi
Publisher: Project-H Books (Rated 18+)
“Nitta Shin finds himself saddled with a sudden, crushing debt. His loan agent tells him he can escape repayment if he keeps a particular woman company. He gradually learns that this arrangement might not be as easy as he once thought.” – DigitalManga
Oku-san’s Daily Fantasies – Takatsuki Noboru
Publisher: SuBLime (Rated 18+) – Digital Only
“Oku-san often buys useless stuff online, but not because it’s his hobby, but because this way he can see Sudou Riki, the good-looking delivery man. Not being able to do anything about his crush, he can’t help but fantasize…” – BakaUpdates
Velvet Kiss currently has no release date but will be in print. Oku-san’s Daily Fantasies is currently a digital only release scheduled for December. SuBLime reps remind us that strong digital sales could potentially mean print for their currently digital-only title someday.
I’d never heard of Oku-san’s Daily Fantasies until now but it seems to have quite a bit of fan excitement behind it and sounds pretty silly (in a good way!). Drama and sex is great and all but I love a fun comedy sometimes.
And has anyone looked closely at the Project-H logo before? It’s pretty clever – a cascading circular nosebleed over top an open book. I only just gave it a good look today and I was pretty entertained by it. Pervy and still visually classy.
My thanks to Sean for the heads up regarding the Velvet Kiss license.
