Crunchyroll announce three new manga for simulpub library


Is that a random dude all up inside that girl? What?

For all you lovelies who don't live in Japan, but want to read comics just as they are released, Crunchyroll has this nifty simulpub thing going on with a bunch of Kodansha's titles including Attack on Titan and Fairy Tail, and they're not stopping there. Coming from Futabashi's Manga Action Magazine, which is updated twice a month, Crunchyroll have announced the titles Silver Nina, Love Theory, and Inside Mari have joined their library, and the latest chapters are already available. You'll have to wait for back-issues, but hey, it's still great news.

Check out the brief summaries for each title below:

Silver Nina by artist Itokatsu

Shimazaki Shutaro goes back home to the country, after losing his job in Tokyo. To his surprise, when he opens the door to his family home, he finds a beautiful little girl with silver hair and blue eyes. Taking place in a city on a plateau, a tired young man and a beautiful half Japanese girl bring you a story of the slow, calming life in the country!!

Love Theory by artist Masaki Satou (original: Keiya Mizuno)

Even if I'm hideous. Even if I'm broke. Even if there's not one iota of sexiness to me. There HAS to be a way for me to snag my ideal woman. Masaki Satou (author of "The Ultra-Apathetic Spec Ops Squad JAP FIVE!") and Keiya Mizuno (head writer of "My Dreams will come TRUUUUUE!") come together for a hilarious, risque collaboration that just might help YOU find true love too!

Inside Mari by artist Shuzo Oshimi

A young man is a shut-in, with nothing to do but kill time. The sole pleasure in his life is following home an angelic high school girl he sees every day in a convenience store. Today, like any other day, he follows her, but… Shuzo Oshimi, the creator of Drifting Net Café and Flowers of Evil, continues to open hidden doors of the heart in this monthly serialized story!

All three of these look like some real oddball choices, but they could be fun! I've never heard of any of them - have you? I'm more pleased that we're still making strides in the simulpub business, because it's a Very Good Thing (TM). I'm looking forward to seeing what else is in store for Crunchyroll's digital library.
