Shoya is the flashy bodyguard assigned to watch over Haruma’s every move and protect him from… wait, why does he need protecting again? Haruma doesn’t even know, and he certainly doesn’t think he needs babysitting. But his mom insists, and so chaos ensues as Haruma tries to protect himself from Shoya’s swift advances.

This is the first volume of an incredible series from an incredibly famous mangaka, Naduki Koujima.

The seme is confident, flashy, and always shows up to rescue Haruma from danger.

The uke is a “spoiled rich kid” with a really cute humble side (he actually wants to be able to support himself without depending on his rich family), and gets swept up in Shoya’s straightforward pursuit over and over again.

My senpai was very very excited that we get to release this title from one of her favorite artists, and so I am very happy to announce that we’ve got it for you now, exclusively at Renta!

If you like classic shoujo flavors and cute comedy, this one’s for you.

Double The Pleasure, Double the Fun

Starting this week at Renta!, new releases will come out every TUESDAY and FRIDAY from now on.

Big news!

Starting this week at Renta!, new releases will come out every TUESDAY and FRIDAY from now on.

Until now we’ve been updating the site with new releases once a week on Wednesdays, but over the last six months alone we’ve more than doubled the amount of manga we put out on the site at one time.

Temporarily we’ll spread the releases out to give you as much great stuff as we can twice a week, but we’ve got a lot of amazing titles on the way so strap in for a great summer.

*Note: This change will not affect Wednesday special sales and campaigns like Premium Wednesday.

BLessings upon you and your family.

In honor of “Double the Pleasure, Double the Fun” I bring to you two great threesomes:

Viola

One year before the start of the manga, Viola Manghelica Euphorbia (try saying that one three times fast!), above, is approached by her father regarding a marriage proposal from Cersis Tinensis Physalis (what’s with the long names!?), below. Viola’s father is an earl who’s fallen into poverty after taking enormous amounts of loans to rescue his kingdom from a famine. Cersis is the Duke of Rosia in the flourishing kingdom of Fleur. He’s extremely handsome and a highly eligible bachelor. Viola, on the other hand, is — in her own words — a “plain Jane”. She simply can’t wrap her head around why he’d want her as a wife.

Cersis

Just then, Cersis shows up at her father’s rundown mansion and invites Viola out for tea. At their tea time, he explains that why he’s asked for Viola’s hand in marriage and offered to pay for her father’s debt.

Rosiasnippet

Viola is taken aback by his guilt-free attitude toward the whole situation. I mean, who in the right mind would say yes to such an unusual arrangement!? However, Viola briefly thinks over his proposal and accepts, provided Cersis follows through with his word to pay off her family’s debts entirely.

After the wedding ceremony, Viola is relieved to get to her new home… until she’s greeted by countless servants! In her father’s mansion, there were only two servants for the entire family. Just how rich is this guy!?

Rosiasnippet2

Afterwards, she’s whisked up to the master bedroom. Viola can hardly believe here eyes. She’d only had the privilege of visiting such bedrooms. Now it’s all hers!? She wonders, however, where the Duke will sleep. He informs her that he resides in the other wing with his girlfriend, Calendula.

Rosiasnippet3

This awfully cute Shojo series follows Viola around as she tries to keep up the charade as Cersis’s wife and fill her days with adventure. If you are in the mood for a beautifully drawn, amazing manga with a surprisingly sweet story, check it out from the item page link above or click here.

 

 

Piracy

One of our intentions with this blog is not only to entertain our readers, but to inform and educate them as well. As many are likely aware, one of the biggest issues we face in the manga industry is piracy. In this post, I would like to talk about what piracy is, why it happens, and why we should support the artists as much as we can.

Please note: This post is based on online research and consultation with other Renta! employees. I am not a legal expert in anyway and none of the information provided in here should be taken as definitive legal advice. Please consult with a proper legal professional regarding any questions, concerns or doubts you may have about piracy and/or copyright infringement.

That said, let’s start with discussing what piracy is. Online piracy was traditionally used to refer to acts of copyright infringement intentionally committed for financial gain. With the spread of the file-sharing services, piracy (intentional or otherwise) has come to include acts of copyright infringement for both monetary and non-monetary gain.

Some may be wondering, but what is copyright? Good question. Copyright is a legal right that grants the creator of an original work the exclusive right to distribute and use work as they see fit. It is a right that exists to protect intellectual property. Although establishing that copyright has been infringed can prove difficult in the court of law, it is not impossible with sufficient proof. Once copyright has been determined infringed, the penalties for the infringing party are extremely severe. I will discuss these momentarily. The point is this: it is important that we always obtain the proper permission from the author(s) and/or copyright holder(s) before distributing the work in question.

So, why is piracy so widespread with manga? Three possible reasons come to mind.

  1. Pricing. I’ve recently been helping manage our English-language Facebook page. This means access to our Facebook ads and the comments left on them. I cannot begin to tell you how often someone comments, “I wish this were free!” or “Can someone tell me where I can get this for free?” Our goal is to make manga available at the most affordable price for everyone. However, we do not hold the right to determine the price for the manga on our site–the publishers do. We cannot change the price of our manga as the users demand so easily. Even when we do, it is either at the request of the publishers or for limited-time promotions and offers after obtaining the publisher’s permission to do so. We have legally binding contracts with each publisher and therefore must sell the manga at the price they have set.
  2. Unavailability. Traditionally, this was a question of the content being unavailable in English. A scanlator who had access to the original Japanese manga would clean up the Japanese, translate it into English, and put it out online for everyone to enjoy. This still proves to be a problem as some of the content our users wish to read may not be legally available in English for a number of reasons. We empathize with this and strive to provide the manga our users wish to read, but again, we are bound by certain constraints such as contracts, the publisher’s and/or author’s demands, and speed at which the content can be translated, lettered and released on our site.
  3. Anonymity. Let’s face it: some of the manga we sell may not be something you want your family, friends, or acquaintances knowing about. Downloading it from a website that does not require any identifying information such as your name or credit card information provides great peace of mind. We get it. We are a for-profit distributor of manga, so in order to earn a profit for our work, we have to collect a certain amount of information about our users. But, rest assured: we do not collect more information than required and we do not share it with any third parties without your prior consent or unless otherwise stated. For more information on what kind of information we collect and how that information is used, please see our privacy policy.

Now, what are the consequences for piracy?

Once it’s been determined that copyright has been infringed, a letter is delivered to the website in question asking the content to be immediately removed. If it is not removed, the service provider would then be contacted regarding the immediate blockage of access to and/or removal of the content and/or website in question. Generally, the issue would be resolved at this point, so no further action would be required.

However, in some cases, it may be deemed appropriate to pursue legal action. The consequences can vary depending on the copyright laws of the infringing and/or infringed parties’ countries. In the United States, for example, if the infringement is determined to be willful, a maximum of $150,000 (USD) is fined to the infringing party. More recently, however, laws have been passed that disregard willful infringement and impose a maximum sentence of 5-years in prison and/or fines of up to $250,000 (USD).

The bottom line is this: support the artists. They’ve poured themselves into creating the best work they can and make a living from doing so. Engaging in piracy means robbing them of a hard-earned paycheck and ultimately robbing the world of their manga in the future because they will not longer be able to make a living from producing it. We want to continue bringing you the best English-language manga available online, so please, help us to do so by supporting the artists!

 

Falling Slowly

I am genuinely excited to bring this title to you in English! I will file this under “Manga Sarah has owned and purchased way back before it was available on our English site, so she’s super excited to release it into English” which is a long category title, but bear with me, because it’s great.

Introducing: “Falling Slowly” by Kishimoto

Falling Slowly

I am genuinely excited to bring this title to you in English! I will file this under “Manga Sarah has owned and purchased way back before it was available on our English site, so she’s super excited to release it into English” which is a long category title, but bear with me, because it’s great.

The Japanese title is “Iyaya Iyaya mo Suki no Uchi?” and you can find it on the Japanese Renta here!

The setting is at a convenience store at a train station in Kansai, featuring a bright-eyed and expressive Senpai who shows everything he’s thinking or feeling on his face for all to see, and a very unexpressive Kouhai who is almost impossible to read and yet asks Senpai to go out with him on page 1 of this cute story.

Iyayamo

(Iyaya Iyaya Mo Suki no Uchi?)

Senpai turns him down harshly out of reflex, but regrets his knee-jerk reaction. Obsessing over what to do and trying to figure out what his Kouhai is thinking, they spend the rest of their shift together almost as if nothing had happened. But as they were getting ready to go, Kouhai made it clear he hasn’t given up on Senpai, and hopes that he’ll give him a chance.

I love this pairing and I hope you will, too.

If you can read Japanese I also recommend you check out the original! Why? Because KANSAI-BEN. It’s too cute! Akan!

If you can’t, you can still enjoy the translation which takes their cute conversations and makes it frank and sweet without getting into weird slang.

9-539607-728090-120062701

This is Kishimoto’s first full volume work, so I can’t wait to read more from them. They also have a two-chapter one-shot of two college students where one of them is literally a stalker but he’s so adorable and (mostly) harmless that the other boy can’t help but let him into his heart.
