Body Guard: Takahiro’s normal life as a high school student gets turned on its head when his father marries a super rich Hollywood actress named, Elizabeth Adley, and leaves Japan to be with her. Takahiro is forced to leave his apartment home move into a lavish hotel room. Fantasies of naked nights of porn and debauchery begin to fill Takahiro’s mind. Too bad his new mother in law has other plans.

In order to protect Takahiro (and her money) from kidnappings, Elizabeth hires two bodyguards from a distinguished American company. Any thoughts of unsupervised nights of fun quickly rush from Takahiro’s mind. On the up side, his new bodyguards are totally cool.

Will this be the end of his life, or a new beginning? Will he fall for the cool looking Yuuji? What will happen during Takahiro’s Nichome debut? The answers to all these questions, and a special continuation chapter, in Kimiyoshi’s erotic tale of a reluctant new prince and his knights in black suits. Sometimes you just have to relax and let things work themselves out.

Happy-Go-Lucky Days, vol. 2:A woman finds herself crying in a bathroom as she watches her high school girlfriend exchange vows with a man—but a chance encounter may help things turn out better than she thinks. Meanwhile, a boy teeters on the brink of puppy love, no thanks to his meddling, A.V. actress of a cousin, and two wayward spirits, unable to touch the world around them, try to forge bonds with the people who can see them. The world may seem a little melancholy, but things just might come up roses in these eight sweet, sexy, and subtle vignettes by Takako Shimura.
Help! God of Love: It’s been two years since Naoto left Daichi alone. Daichi, filled with remorse, promised himself he would never again fall in love. But when Naoto returns, Daichi finds himself overflowing with emotions. Is it love? Is it hate? Is it possible to walk down the stairs backwards with your eyes closed? The answers to these questions and more lie hidden deep within the pages of Tsukiko Kurebayashi’s tale of romance rekindled. Sometimes, the only person you can rely on is the God of Love.
Yumeichi: This is the daily life story of Ren, a 8th grade school girl, and her teacher, Hasumi.
Their ordinary but unusual days are happy and cheerful!

    I don’t know what the heck Amazon is thinking. Clearly they don’t have the same issues with explicit heterosexual titles. And Sadistic Boy has been on Kindle for a long time. Why do they suddenly have an issue with it now? I’m just glad they’re not doing this with Nook titles.

    Can I ask what happened to Hidaka Shouko’s Does The Flower Bloom? It was supposed to come out this summer and now it’s not even listed at the site anymore. I was so happy when I found there would be a print ver. and it was the title I was looking forward the most.

    I pre-ordered Ze vol7 last July (and even vol8 in March…) so presale doesn’t interest me, when can I and the others like me can expect this title since your “schedule” is pretty much empty?!
