Press release as follows:
**Free Collars Kingdom - Takuya Fujima - Volume 1**
It's hard to resist Cyan: he's an adorable catboy, whose cute ears and tail have made him a beloved pet. But then his family abandons him, leaving the innocent Cyan to fend for himself. Just when Cyan thinks he's all alone in the world, he meets the Free Collars, a cool gang of stray cats who believe that no feline should allow a human to imprison his Wild Spirit. They invite Cyan to join them, and the reluctant housecat has to decide fast, because a rival gang of cats is threatening the Free Collars' territory! Can Cyan learn to free his Wild Spirit - and help his new friends save their home?
**Airgear - Oh!great - Volume 3**
Itsuki is still getting the hang of his Air Trecks - the super high-tech skates that have helped him fight back against the rival skate gangs making trouble on his turf. But when his two best friends end up in the hospital after losing a battle to Buccha, a notorious gang leader, Itsuki realises he needs to polish his skills - and fast. Though the other students at Itsuki's school are finally realising that the skate wars pose a dangerous threat, only Itsuki is daring enough to take on the cruel and colossally strong Buccha. But the upcoming fight may be the least of his worries after the beautiful Simca brings a warning: In Itsuki's quest to rule the skies, the battle with Buccha will be just the beginning!
**School Rumble - Jin Kobayashi - Volume 3 and 4**
3 Love (in the form of Tsukamoto Tenma) betrayed Harima Kenji, but he has moved on in an effort to find himself. He's become a fortune-teller who can communicate with animals. Some even mistake him for a helpful deity who watches over a local shrine. What happens to a young man who gets lost on his journey of self-discovery? Meanwhile, Tenma and her friends embark on a trip of their own. They go to the beach for sun, sand, and surf - and meet four guys with less-than-noble intentions.
Plus, School Rumble fans can look forward to a brand-new character!
4 Cute Tsukamoto Tenma is desperately trying to help juvenile delinquent classmate Harima Kenji win the girl of his dreams: Tenma's friend Mikoto. But when Tenma hears Kenji say 'I love you' to someone else, she begins to have serious doubts about kenji's loyalties. Now, in an abandoned school in the middle of the woods on a rainy night, Tenma is ready to confront him one-on-one about his infidelities. Little does she know that she has totally misread the situation, and that the love-crazed punk has actually developed a hopeless crush on her!
**Guru Guru Pon Chan - Satomi Ikezawa - Volume 7**
Lately, the Guru Guru Bone hasn't been working very well, and dating has become ruff-ruff. Gang, an aggressive Labrador, is drooling over Ponta, unaware that she's human half the time. And Gang's owner, Aoka, is attracted to Mirai, and will stop at nothing to have him for herself. When Aoka hatches a plan to 'marry' Gang and Ponta, she sets in motion a chain of events that may leave Ponta expecting puppies and Mirai all alone!
