FRIEREN: Remnants of The Departed

VOLUME 12

What began as a way to kill time due to immigration delays has turned into… a journey through time?!

A brand-new arc begins when the mysterious workings of the Goddess’ magic pulls Frieren back to eighty years ago, where she is reunited with her original party in the flesh!

But the longer she stays, the higher the risk of altering the future, and attracting the attention of prime demons who want her dead!

MOST RECOMMENDED BY READERS

FRIEREN

Fifty years after the Demon Lord’s defeat, Frieren and her heroic party are reunited. For an almost immortal elf like her, it seemed like only yesterday, but her now-elderly human friends are leaving the world one by one.

Before his death, Heiter manages to foist a young human apprentice called Fern onto Frieren. Driven by the elf’s passion for collecting a myriad of magic spells, the pair embarks on a seemingly aimless journey, revisiting the places that the heroes of yore had visited. Along their travels, Frieren slowly confronts her regrets of missed opportunities to form deeper bonds with her now-deceased comrades.

MOB PSYCHO 100

WRITTEN BY THE AUTHOR OF THE ICONIC ‘ONE PUNCH MAN’, MOB PSYCHO 100 IS CHOCK-FULL OF WITTY COMEDY AND MINDBLOWING ACTION… WITH A PLOT THAT’S THICKER THAN IT SEEMS!

Shigeo “Mob” Kageyama is an eighth-grade student blessed with extraordinary psychic powers. However, Mob decides to suppress his abilities in public due to its destructive nature. Mob’s only present use for his ability is to impress his longtime crush, Tsubomi, who soon grows bored of the same tricks.

Nonetheless, to keep his psychic powers honed, he works under Arataka Reigen—a self-proclaimed esper looking to make use of Mob’s skills where he helps to exorcise evil spirits.

But troubles keep on bombarding his daily life, slowly breaking his shackled feelings. With his repressed emotions welling up, there’s no telling what will happen once he reaches his limit.
