We move into the last few weeks of summer with four new chapter updates
and our review of a rather...unique
manga-series which has been attracting some attention recently.
First up, Crystal Jayme continues the story of Heather Vodihn and co. in the 12th chapter of Nigh Heaven & Hell!
With their nightmarish experience in town over and a new traveling companion in tow, the gang finally has time to rest before continuing their journey. But while her comrades sleep, Heather continues to push the limits of her sleepless vigil, for the mysterious Raziel continues to haunt her dreamscape with ominous messages of the days to come. But what exactly does this foreboding message warn of, and how will it affect Heather's new friends?

His quest drops him square in the center of Stark City; a town crawling with thieves, gamblers and outlaws. Controlled by the mysterious "G" gang, Stark City provides Yuki with a less-than-comforting welcome. But when he unexpectedly stumbles across one of his "brothers" within the gang, how will Yuki convince this gang-member to join him in his campaign against Prince?Brothers Grimm Chapter 2, "A Rough Beginning"

Louise and Drew are there for their new friend, and agree to help share the responsibilities until Bruce's mom heals, but Bruce still needs to find another job to make ends meet. When he stumbles across a rare opportunity at a modeling agency, will Bruce be able to stomach repressing his ego for the sake of a paycheck for his family's well-being? And what new twists await when the natural tough-guy unknowingly becomes part of a live television show!?Orange Junk, Chapter 5, "The Wandering Lion"
is out now!!
...Well...that's...unexpected. We wrap things up this month with a look at a rather bizarre twist on the harem-genre in the form of Okayado's Monster Musume.
Throwing lamias, harpies, centaurs and more half-human, half-beast ladies into a...unique fanservice cocktail, will this title manage to introduce a new-spin on classic harem or lean too heavily on the oddity of its sexualization?
Find out in David Rondinelli's review of Monster Musume!
