Im, Dal Young, famous for the long running manga Freezing, is back with a spin-off that like the name says, is basically a bunch of love stories between the main pandoras and their limiters.

In comparison to "Freezing", Pair Love Stories leans towards the cute and moe on every department, with romance stories that cover most of the main pairs from the main manga.

The stories are very fast paced but carry emotional baggage. Most of the pairs are made around stories that rely heavily on "fate" and cliche themes rather than on realistic backgrounds. Despite that, it does great to engulf you in a romantic read more

As if Japan didn't have everything already, they also pride themselves on having a HUGE selection of candy and sweets at your nearest convenience stores, and this manga is almost like a throwback to most of the popular sweets in our childhood.

Dagashi Kashi (rough translation) "Cheap Sweets", is an episodic manga about Shikada Kokonotsu, a wannabe-mangaka that is against his father's wishes of managing the town's sweet shop, and Shidare Hotaru, a fan of her father's store and his reputation who also has an (insane)fascination for sweets.

Filled with puns and sweets, each chapter works with a single popular candy to tell the story. From sweet read more

Would you be able to keep your crush's biggest secret from everyone knowing that you are the most honest person in the world?

MAL's summary of Jitsu wa Watashi wa might put off many readers because it implies it is just another "My crush is a vampire and I have to keep it a secret from everyone in school" but it is more than that. In fact, that only describes the first 3 chapters or so, which reminds me of the phrase "don't judge a book by it's cover".

After Kuromine, Asahi(our main character) finds out about Youko's vampire secret, Asahi goes through many absurd and hilarious read more

-->If you are unfamiliar with the prequel and were wondering if you need to read it beforehand, worry not, I will answer all your questions.

As the Gods Will is a manga about tests of courage, intelligence, strength, teamwork, and friendship.
One day, all high school students around the world were given certain tests and games by a mystery man in order for him to single out "god's children". Most of these tests were simple childhood games like red light/green light, left hand/right hand, or hopscotch, but with deadly stakes.
Unlike it's prequel, the kids in this story never made it to school read more
