With great art, a great story, and a cliffhanger that will leave you dangling for more, this is one you have to check out for yourself!

Over-Cumming Writer’s Block is a long-running series on Renta!, and it’s no stranger to the best-seller list.

Harlequin/Romance

Title: Married by Dawn

Page link: https://www.ebookrenta.com/renta/sc/frm/item/140742/

Everyone loves a good fantasy romp now and then, and I can’t think of a more appropriate way to celebrate October than with a story about vampires! Shion Hanyu delivers another beautifully drawn story about a romance between Tara, whose sister was unjustly killed by a mysterious undead creature, and Gavin, a beautiful but cold vampire! Will Tara be able to make Gavin’s cold heart feel again?

With the #1 spot taken yet again by our popular contract marriage series, I turned to the #2, a lovely high school romance featuring two misunderstood students.

Can these two broken people come together to form a fulfilling meaning?

Page link: https://www.ebookrenta.com/renta/sc/frm/item/139494/

Who doesn’t love a good fantasy romp? Especially when our main character is a succubus who feeds on the love she gets in people’s dreams! With a premise like that, it’s no wonder people are taking notice. Shuji comes to his late father’s village to close his accounts, but finds his mistress to be much more than he can handle! Could he really live with a demon!?

Yuri

Title: True Love That Starts with a Lie
Author: Wani Kurokoda

Page link: https://www.ebookrenta.com/renta/sc/frm/item/140410/

A lot of the yuri we have on our site is just too cute not to read, and that’s definitely true of this month’s best-selling one-shot, True Love That Starts with a Lie, starring two high schoolers who at first glance couldn’t be more different, but actually share more in common than they think. Black-haired Ai is a self-professed pervert who doesn’t really have many friends, but ends up pretending to be knowledgeable about sex when the ditzy but surprisingly pure Liliya accidentally finds Ai’s “lucky condom!” Also check out Wani Kurokoda’s other one-shot featuring the same characters, No Release Until Ecstasy is Achieved!

It’s not hard to see why Nonda Noda’s works often appear at the top of the charts at Renta! The art is downright beautiful, and the stories are interesting and usually a breath of fresh air. That’s no different with this story, about a tough girl who wants to be cute for the guy she likes, combined with a fluffy guy who might possibly have a little bit of a secret dark side to him.

Authors: Kinosaki Kazura/Tsuredurebana

Page link: https://www.ebookrenta.com/renta/sc/frm/item/139323/

The Duchess of Rosia is a classic manga whose enduring popularity continues to make me happy. After all, it’s such a cute story of a woman forced into a brand new situation, and she just kinda wants to do her own thing! Beautiful art, a great story, and a charming cast of characters tie everything together in this fantasy comedy manga about the daughter of a small-time earl getting thrust into a political world with a “contract marriage” to a handsome duke!

Preview: Shouganai Kara Aishite Ageru

Yoko Ito, artist of the bestselling Allergic to Love, is back again with their latest work Shouganai Kara Aishite Ageru (しょうがないから愛してあげる). Its official release date and title on the English website is yet to be announced, but I guarantee you’ll love it.

We follow two coworkers: Sako Miyamura and Eiji Miya. They have nothing in common other than the fact that they joined the company at the same time and that Sako is in charge of his accounts.

Sako’s just your average Japanese office worker, but has a surprisingly feisty temperament and a thing for suits–in particular, Eiji’s. Every chance she can get, Sako ogles Eiji’s suits.

Eiji, on the other hand, is a handsome and intelligent hotshot salesman who’s so motivated, he’s hardly swayed by all the women in the office fawning over him. He’s so disinterested in others that he flat out turns down an invitation from the new-hire before she can even spit it out.

On the day when Sako and Eiji’s relationship takes an unexpected turn, Sako heads to the company file room and opens the door. She’s surprised to find Eiji going through the files. She thinks it must be her lucky day since she can get gawk at his suit to her heart’s content through the gap in the shelf without him noticing. She leans down in anticipation… but he’s gone!

Just then, she hears footsteps behind her. She turns around.

Eiji’s glaring at her. He barks at her to quit staring because it’s so distracting. He’s well-aware he’s gorgeous, but he’s beyond her league, so she shouldn’t get any ideas about having a chance with him.

Just as he smirks and turns to walk away, Sako throws her hands on his face and starts squishing it. She sarcastically apologizes for gawking, but just can’t help herself–his suit is too gorgeous! She doesn’t want to wrinkle it, so she’s intentionally squishing his face.

Hell hath no fury like an office worker denied her suit-viewing privileges. She doesn’t give a shit about Eiji’s looks or personality–she just wants a good look at that suit! Eiji’s simultaneously taken aback by her hot temper and enamored with her for her passion for and knowledge of suits.

I Never Taught You That

Review: The Lion Man And The Geek Girl -My First Time Was With An Animal-

The Lion Man And The Geek Girl by Shishime
Item page: https://www.ebookrenta.com/renta/sc/frm/item/138504/

This was the first manga that I read when I joined Renta! It’s surprisingly received a lot of attention outside of our website through other channels. The art is beautiful. It’s filled with so many cute pictures and contains a sort of sensuality that I’ve never seen in other manga. Of course, there’s quite a bit of humor in it as well.

TLMATGG-YuriUeno

Yuri Ueno (above) is a college student. She’s always been very shy around other humans. When she dropped her eraser in class and the guy sitting next to her picked it up and tried to hand it to her, she couldn’t even spit out the words “thank you”. She feels far more comfortable around animals. That’s why she’s studying to become a veterinarian. Her father runs a zoo where she helps out.

TLMATGG-Leo

Leo (above) is a lion at her father’s zoo. Yuri stops by his cage every day to catch him up on her day.

On one particular day, she stops by Leo’s cage to clean it. She tells him all about the awful professor who approached her after class for some “private tutoring”. She’s clearly upset over what happened. Leo tries to comfort her by rolling on top of her and giving her “kisses”. She laughs and reaches up to pet him. Just then, a thought strikes her.

TLMATGG-Leohuman

Yuri lies her head on Leo’s stomach after she cleans his cage, closes her eyes, and drifts off to sleep.

Suddenly, a voice calls out to Leo from across the room.

“Leo. Do you want to be a human being? Do you?”

Will Leo ever turn into a human? Head over to the item page above or click here to find out!

Review: The Artist And The Beast

The Artist And The Beast by Coda
Item page: https://www.ebookrenta.com/renta/sc/frm/item/122787/

This is another one of our currently bestselling manga on the site. Just like Over-cumming Writer’s Block, the art is beautiful and the layout is clean. It’s got a wonderful balance of story and eroticism. Unlike Over-cumming Writer’s Block, however, there’s a little less humor and a lot more steam.

TAAB-Rui-Kijima

Rui Kijima (above) is a struggling manga artist. She’d always wanted to be one, but her parents fiercely protested it. She hasn’t been eating or sleeping very well lately. As a result, she’s become nothing but skin and bones.

Concerned about her, her editor, Ayumu Ono (also above), calls her up. He suggests she finds a good guy to take care of her. Rui explains that she’s not interested in having a boyfriend and that she thinks love is a pain in the ass.

“There it is. The ‘pain in the ass’ line!” he screams out from the other end of the phone. He blabs on about how he thinks she should be interested in everything as a manga artist, but Rui hangs up on him.

She sighs and lies her head on her desk. “Please… give me an idea…”

DING DONG.

TAAB-Keigo-Azuma

She opens her door. Keigo Azuma (above) towers over her.

“Name’s Azuma. I run a money-lending business…” He pulls out an I.O.U. “Do you remember becoming a Mr. Yashiro’s guarantor?”

Rui examines the I.O.U. She recalls that Mr. Yashiro had shown up at her place right before a huge deadline and refused to leave until she signed as his guarantor.

Keigo continues: “I’d like you to pay back his $60,000 debt.” She hesitates. He suggests she ask her parents for help. She remembers her parents’ reaction when she told them she was becoming a manga artist.

“I… I’LL PAY IT ALL BY MYSELF!” she tells him. But, she’s only got $40,000 in savings. She asks him to wait for the rest. He says he’d be willing to wait for the other $20,000 in exchange for something else…

What will Rui do!?

Review: Over-cumming Writer’s Block

Over-cumming Writer’s Block by Awaji Nae
Item page: https://www.ebookrenta.com/renta/sc/frm/item/138731/

This is the first Awaji Nae manga featured on our website and is currently one of our bestsellers. It’s no surprise why. The art is beautiful and modern. The layout is clean in both the Japanese and the English. And, it’s got the perfect balance of eroticism, story, and humor.

Over-cumming-Rio

Rio Mizuhara (above) has always loved words and writing. She could travel to worlds she’d never imagined. In high school, she won her first writing contest and was picked up by her current editor, Ms. Maeda (below). It was Ms. Maeda who encouraged her to explore the field of erotic romance.

Over-cumming-Maeda

However, Rio has one major problem according to Ms. Maeda: her sex scenes are like a cabbage and stork getting it on.

Over-cumming-scene1

Rio wonders if she’s really cut out for writing erotic romance novels. She has no clue what goes on during sex, let alone ever been horny in her entire life.

Dejected, she leaves the meeting and gets onto the elevator with Mr. Fujishima, a business man, standing behind her. She sighs and says out loud, “I wish someone could just teach me how to have sex…”

THUD! FLAP! FLAP!

She looks over her shoulder. Mr. Fujishima has dropped his briefcase and all of its contents have gone flying out onto the elevator floor! She bends down and helps him collect his documents. “Here,” she says as she hands him his documents.

DIIING.

The elevator reaches his floor and he runs out.

Over-cumming-Fujishima

He doesn’t even thank her. Now infuriated, Rio decides to cheer herself up with some dessert at a café across the way from her publisher. She notices he’s left an envelope on the elevator. She picks it up and gets off the elevator.

Back at work, Mr. Fujishima realizes he’s lost the documents from Blurt publishing, Rio’s publisher. He’s clearly in a bad mood, but his fellow employees comment that he always looks that way. Mr. Fujishima wonders if he forgot to pick it up when he dropped his briefcase in the elevator.

His secretary calls out from across the room: “Blurt Publishing is waiting for you on line 2.”

He answers the phone.

“I… um… the envelope… *cough* *cough* I have your documents from Blurt Publishing. If you want them back, come to the café in front of Blurt’s building!”

The caller hangs up.

He rushes over to the café to find Rio scarfing down a parfait. He thanks her for picking up the envelope and reaches down for it. Rio slams her hand on the envelope and apologizes for blackmailing him. He asks her why she’s apologizing and assures her that she’s helped him.

She lifts her head up and tells him she’s about to blackmail him. She offers to give him the documents back in exchange for an interview. He’s irritated, but decides to humor her.

“OH MY GOD! THANK YOU!” she enthusiastically screams out. “SO, WHERE DO YOU START WITH FOREPLAY?”

He whisks her out of the café to a more private place to continue her interview…
