The awkward yet heartwarming love story of a scorned, incompetent villainess and an unapproachable, genius villain.

Despite her noble status, Brigitte contracts with the weakest type of spirit—and on that very same day, the prince publicly breaks off their engagement. No one shows much sympathy toward the once haughty young lady—except for the duke’s son, Yuri, who attends the same magic academy. Yuri is feared for his incredible abilities and icy personality, but with him on her side, her fortunes might change…

A Misanthrope Teaches a Class for Demi-Humans

By Kurusu Natsume

I’m Rei Hitoma, a self-professed misanthrope, thanks to some past trauma. Just when I thought my new teaching job in the mountains would provide a chill, rejuvenating environment, it turns out that this school is actually for demi-humans who want to become full-fledged human beings! There’s a mermaid, a werewolf, a rabbit, and a bird…all of whom are now my charges. It’s my duty to teach them about humankind—and maybe in the process, I’ll learn a few things myself. This isn’t an alternate world or a case of reincarnation. It’s just the story of a teacher at a somewhat peculiar school, and his students who are striving to become human.

The on-sale date for the Reborn to Master the Blade: From Hero-King to Extraordinary Squire  manga will be announced at a later date, but all other titles are scheduled for an October 2023 release.
