New Titles for Teens

Check out these new Manga titles in our awesome Young Adult collection

“Shortcake Cake”: Ten Serizawa has a two-hour commute through the mountains to high school every day, so she can't spend much time hanging out with her friends in the afternoon. She decides to move into the local boardinghouse, where one of her friends and three other boys are living. Ten's friends consider her to be as oblivious as a rock when it comes to noticing boys and falling in love, but will she be able to keep her calm and steady heart in her new living situation?
“The Promised Neverland”: The children of the Grace Field House orphanage have their happy lives upended when they find out they're being raised to be fed to demons. Can they escape their fate before it's too late? Life at Grace Field House has been good for Emma and her fellow orphans. While the daily studying and exams they have to take are tough, their loving caretaker provides them with delicious foods and plenty of playtime. But perhaps not everything is as it seems...
“Rurouni Kenshin”: With his killer blade, legend-warrior Hitokiri Battosai once helped close the turbulent Bakumatsu era and slashed open the progressive age known as Meiji. It's now 1878, ten years after the bloody Meiji Revolution that marked the end of the rule of the Shogun and the Samurai in Japan. In Tokyo, where swords have been banned, Kamiya Kaoru's fencing school's reputation is being ruined by a swordsman who is killing people in the streets using her signature style. But while hunting for the Battosai who is destroying her livelihood, Kaoru bumps into the wandering Himura Kenshin, and so begins an extraordinary friendship between the master swords woman and the mysterious past-master who has vowed never to fight again.
