Vampires now coexist with humans, by the terms of their contract with the former anti-vampire organization "Abraham." This contract determines that vampires are to be human's pets, and keeping a pet vampire has become very popular.

A teenage boy named Daichi really wants a pet vampire, but his older sister won't hear of it. One night, a wild vampire named Iko breaks into his house! The vampires found that Daichi's sister has the extremely rare blood of Czernobog, which she believes will make her powerful enough to destroy the demeaning "Abraham" organization. However, the blood doesn't work exactly as Iko expected, and the proud vampire soon finds herself forced to become the pet of Daichi and his older sister...

Tomioka Yuji is a 32-year-old night-shift guard for a mall. He works completely alone, so he often slacks off, exercising and hanging out on the roof. In some ways, the job is perfect for him, as he's always been terrible with people. However, he can't help feeling incredibly lonely and wishing he had friends.

One night, he makes a wish for friendship on a falling star. Shortly after, he finds a strange note left at the door of the mall. It says, "within a year, you'll go mad and die." After this, his solitary life begins to change--some ways for the better, and some for the worse. At work, he notices an ominous silhouette in a nearby apartment building, watching him neglect his job. Who is the mysterious figure? Who sent him the creepy note, and why?

  3. Publishing Status (+ Number of Volumes/Chapters)

This is what tethysdust said this week:
Quote:
Wanitokagegisu was my favorite this week. It's not a style of art that I'm fond of, but the story is really original. Mortal Metal Shibagane seems like a good one for mecha fans. Boku wa Hajikko ga Suki was very cute and funny.
Here's what vyc had to say:
Quote:
Xenos - mystery, thriller series that really caught my attention. The plot twists definitely keep you interested.

A-Dogs - action type story with teenagers that have special powers. Really easy and fun read.

My opinion:
Boku wa Hajikko ga Suki sounds like a cute read. Wanitokagegisu piqued my interest. I'd be interested in reading how he deals with his loneliness. Xenos's storyline interested me as well. This makes me think that you'd better do a background check on your future spouse before getting married.


Translated items that need some love/scanlation:
myao - Circle Game: Chapter 1

I like that the Japanese are using the correct pronunciation of the word for stranger 'xenos', that is 'ksenos' (kusenosu) and not what I often hear from english speakers for such words like 'zenos' or whatever.

Which means 'stranger' by the way (as in someone you don't know, not the adjective).
