    Summary

    Sakura is abducted on a mission by a rogue nin. He reveals himself to be about the same age as she is, but is very cagey about most other details of his life. However they form a strong bond in their short time together, stronger in fact than any of the bonds with her assigned teammates from her village. She manages to escape, returns home and works over the next few years to be a stronger, more capable ninja. But she never forgets him.

    A summer encounter with the rogue nin results in an even stronger friendship with him than before. But that bond is shaken to the core when a mission goes terribly wrong. Both betrayed, Sakura turns to her true teammates, strengthening her ties to her village. And the rogue sheds his former identity and turns fully into the life that had been prepared for him.

    Years later, when a chance encounter turns into a nightmare battle, the Akatsuki's newest member, a young blonde mercenary, has to make a hard choice. Will he keep his identity hidden yet let the pink-haired girl die in his arms? Or will he do what he knows is necessary to save her: wrap her in his hard-earned Akatsuki cloak and head straight for the village that failed him as a child?

    Summary

    As the youngest clan leader in all of Spirit Society, okami Abarai Renji only cares about his tribe's well-being in their home in the forest. He has no interest in getting involved in the politics of the other youkai. Not after the horrific massacre of his tribe that took place one hundred years ago. But when he gets involved in a skirmish against the mountain oni and saves Kuchiki Rukia, a tengu and the younger sister of the leader of the Tengu Clan, Renji finds himself persuaded to assist the other youkai clans to fight against the mountain oni on Hyakki Yagyo to stop them from destroying all of Spirit Society.

    Before he can ally himself with them, however, the youkai must work to fully regain his trust. But even he doesn't expect Kuchiki Byakuya, the aloof leader of the Tengu Clan, to be the one putting in the most effort. And neither do both of them expect to become so drawn to each other.

    But will Renji allow himself to let Byakuya in despite the ghosts of the past? And can he overcome those ghosts in time to help save Spirit Society from the oni?

    Summary

    “Do you believe in ghost stories, Furihata Kouki? I asked you in the very beginning… What sort of story is this? Is it a fairy tale, about your gentle, red-eyed prince? Or a tragedy, about a family who was cursed from the start?”

    Akashi and Furihata are best friends, but they’re both holding on to a few secrets. Akashi is struggling to face the darkness of his past, a strict and painful childhood that he doesn’t fully remember. Meanwhile, Furihata has been dreaming about Akashi every night—and not in a platonic way.

    Then Furihata has an unexpected encounter with Akashi’s other self, who makes a strange request. Soon Furihata is keeping more secrets than he can count, and fighting to keep his newfound feelings hidden, from both of Akashi’s selves. But what will happen when he learns more about the darkness lurking in Akashi’s past?

    “Who are you, Furihata Kouki? And who is the true Akashi Seijuurou?”

    Summary

    Floyd Osborne achieved his dream, moving to Japan. He expected it to be rough, but what he didn't expect was to find a badly injured fox in the woods. As he nurtured the creature back to health, strange things started to happen. Sometimes, out of the corner of his eyes, he swears he saw more than one tail on that fox. Not to mention the fox's golden eyes sometimes seemed to glow with this otherworldly energy. He felt like the creature actually understood him, but he couldn't tell why. Until one day, the fox transforms into a devilishly handsome kitsune named Kaede Hayashi.

    Suddenly, Floyd is thrown into a magical world, like the ones in the cartoons he watches; the worlds he could only dream of being a part of, until now. Meanwhile, it seems to get increasingly harder to not fall in love with the kitsune he rescued.
