Gokudo wa Sweets no Toriko
Story: Michiru Suwayama, Art: Monaka Kuri
Arimichi Takagi was once a known patissier, but due to past circumstances, he quit and became a baking teacher instead. His class consists of homemakers or older women who flock to him because of his beautiful features, except Ryouji Sogabe. Ryouji is one eager student in the class and is very meticulous when baking cakes. There are rumors of him being a gangster due to his mannerisms and attitude, but there’s no way a gangster would enroll in a baking class, right?
Kohaku no Kiss～Utsukushiki Kenkyuusha no Yuuutsu
Story: Yuuko Yuria, Art: Monaka Kuri
Jack and his researcher partner, Furio, teamed up to create a human-like android. Jack was in charge of the ‘vessel’ while Furio was in charge of the ‘mind.’ Their combined work and intelligence resulted in an exceptional android, Vincent Pérignon or V.
V’s handsome and charming features and penchant for teasing Jack have awakened feelings the researcher is hard-pressed to suppress. Falling in love with an android of his own creation is out of the question, more so a man. How long will Jack be able to resist, especially when the two of them start cohabiting?
