Thanks to Ganta returning to the battle, Senji narrowly escapes death battling Toto Sakigami. Still, Toto’s power is so overwhelming they remain at a disadvantage.

Toto is assumed to be crushed to death by the collapsed structure, but is he?

Magi Volume 15 by Shinobu Ohtaka

Servamp Volume 4 by Strike Tanaka

When a stray black cat named Kuro crosses Mahiru Shirota’s path, the high school freshman’s life will never be the same again. Kuro is, in fact, no ordinary feline, but a servamp: a servant vampire.

Tokyo ESP Volume 2 by Hajime Segawa

Tokyo ESP is a high-intensity action and comedy revolving around teens with psychic abilities set in modern day Tokyo.

Witchcraft Works Volume 8 by Ryu Mizunagi
Vertical Comics – MSRP: $12.95
Honoka Takamiya is an average student. Ayaka Kagari, his classmate who sits next to him in class, on the other hand, is the class “Princess”. Ayaka is tall, strikingly gorgeous, and has a regalness to her that almost exudes a royal attitude. Despite their proximity in school, over the school year the two have never shared much conversation until today. As class ended, Takamiya was suddenly attacked by a cat-eared witch and her band of bunny-costumed thugs. And if that were not enough of a shock, this average joe would then be saved like a Princess by none other than Ayaka Kagari., a witch herself.
