We got some omnibus editions for Bleach, Naruto, and Zero's Familiar. Oh, there is Nisekoi volume 1. The newly licensed manga series has just got an anime adaptation this winter season. My favorite manga series, Fairy Tail, is still going strong.

Monsters—they’re real, and they want to date us!

A snake-like lamia named Miia comes to live with him, and it is Kurusu’s job to take care of her and make sure she integrates into his everyday life.

If that wasn’t hard enough for a regular teenage guy to cope with, his life is about to take a shocking turn for the worse.

And he learns that there are worse things than being turned into a vampire: being turned into a girl?!
