◆ Latest information of new serialization & 1 episode notice November 2021 version
Regarding the new manga serialization that announced the renewal from the second half of 2021, it has been greatly expanded, such as progressing to the point of publication and further serialization works have been decided, so the latest information and the already completed No. 1 I will show you the notice of episode 1.

・ Serialization: Encounter between a lonely girl and an android girl 'Secret Miyazono' Next episode notice
' Secret Miyazono ', which published the first episode in September 2021, is open to the public until the first part of the second episode as of November 1. In the second part of the second episode, which will be released soon, Rinne, who proposes to Hanane as an android, will sneak around Hanane's life and further develop a slapstick drama that delivers joy, anger, happiness and dissatisfaction.

The name of the third episode is also in progress. The daily life of the invaded Hanane began to settle down in the form of being swayed by Rinne. And the relationship between the two reaches a big turning point.

・ New serialization information # 1: 'My husband smells garlic!'
'My husband smells garlic!', Which is scheduled to start serializing from mid-November to early December 2021, is a unique work of vampire x maid x garlic gourmet. The maid who thinks of the vampire's master serves garlic dishes to overcome her weaknesses ...?

Since the image is in the process of being produced, it is monochrome except for ramen, but when it is serialized, it will be delivered in full color, so you can fully enjoy the cute and delicious pictures and stories.

・ New serialization information # 2: 'Mr. Asahina who wants to be bullied anyway'
Also scheduled to start serialization within 2021, 'Anyway, Ijimetai Asahina-san' has a little girl Hikaru playing with her childhood friend Yuhi, but behind that is Hikaru's far-reaching ambition to love Yuhi. There is a gag, there is friendship, there is impression? 4-frame manga.

The prize-winning works of the Manga Awards in July 2021 are scheduled to appear as soon as possible.

Hikaru and Yuhi are childhood friends and are now classmates. Pay attention to the smiley and a little sad relationship between these two people.

・ New serialization information # 3: 'End to infinite reincarnation'
The start date of the serialization is undecided, but a large-scale serialization project 'End of Infinite Reincarnation' is also underway. Other than the title, it's still a mystery, but I got a setting picture under construction, so I'll show you a glimpse.

・ New serialization information Bonus 'Brave and company slave's side business life' spin-off
The 'Brave and company-slave side-business life', whose serialization has stopped updating, is in the process of restarting. Along with that, we are planning 'Episode X.5' where the world of different world x company livestock and attractive characters that can not be drawn in the main story fly around. The first episode '2.5 episodes' under construction is a birthday party by different world girls (and the main character). What is the secret plan of a company-slave hero who was too busy to prepare gifts?

In addition to delivering serialization information in the future, we will pre-release manga only for

GIGAZINE Secret Club (GSC) members, deliver treasured materials, and send invitations to the examination to decide the serialization. Please check it out here .
