Ryuuto Henge is a simple man who likes simple things like bread and boobs. He was never ambitious enough to seek wealth or aspire for fame and glory, but that never stopped him from spotting D-cups from the other side of town.The most notable thing he ever achieved in life was to get into the Kingdom of Elderant’s prestigious Royal Knight Academy. Unfortunately, he spent most of his time ogling his classmate Isis’s chest before finally graduating the last of his class.
Ryuuto is the kind of person most people would call a loser or a good-for-nothing. Though he isn’t the type to let such insults bother him, he was now a knight and that meant girls, girls, girls! Or at least that’s what it would have meant if he didn’t get sent to the backwater province of Boan. Little does he know, his relegation to the middle of nowhere would put him in the middle of a conspiracy to overthrow the crown, and between the busty mounds of a man-eating succubus bent on sucking the life out of him.
Fata Morgana -A Requiem for Innocence-
A side story to the recently released Fata Morgana, Requiem for Innocence is a tale set prior to the stories of Fata Morgana. A young girl, “the daughter of God” whose blood is claimed to provide miraculous healing powers, waits kneeling at the chopping block before a young man steps in to intervene and rescue her! This “happy” tale will share the very first chapter of the young girl’s life.
Kindred Spirits on the Roof Hardcopy
Kokonotsuboshi Girls’ Academy of Commerce, a school built on the site of an old castle, known as “Shirojo.” Toomi Yuna spends her time here on her own, until one day her lunch on the roof is suddenly interrupted by a pair of ghosts.
Enoki Sachi, who died in an accident before the war, and Nagatani Megumi, who died of illness thirty years ago. These “kindred spirits” died with unrequited feelings in their hearts, met, and fell in love. They hold an ardent wish to experience their “first time” together before their eternal rest. …But they don’t know how.
The two haunting spirits enlist Yuna to help them foster more “yuri” couples at the school, to assist girls struggling with their hidden feelings, and with the hope that their successes will help them glean the insight they need.

Beat Blades Haruka Hardcopy
Evil ninja have invaded Japan to try and conquer it with their devant ideals and revive the ancient creature that grants them power! And the only way to stop them–is to get it on with your own group of ninja!
Takamaru was living an ordinary life, looking for love. Despite the valliant efforts of his landlord’s daughter, Narika, to get in the way, one day Takamaru falls for a girl named Haruka at first sight.
That very evening, Takamaru and Narika are attacked by a mysterious group of ninja only to be saved by none other than Haruka clad in kunoichi gear. In an even more shocking turn of events, Haruka declares Takamaru her master and asks him to have sex with her!
It turns out that Takamaru is the heir to a clan of heroic ninja known as the Crescent Moons and as such he has the ability to provide a supernatural energy called Sex Power (SP) through sexual activity.

Is this cage hell or paradise?
They wake up in a white room remembering nothing―― The protagonist Takato Keisuke and 6 others are locked up in these hidden white rooms. His childhood friend Hokari Kanae, classmate Andou Miyako, underclassmate Makiba Rika, English teacher Aoi Natsuki, same year Byakuya Rinne, and classmate Manaka Nemu. While still confused about their unusual situation, a “mystery voice” suddenly speaks to them: “A game has now started.” In order to escape the room, Keisuke is the “unlocker” and one heroine the “keyhole”. With an assigned act, he must “use the key”.
After hearing the unreasonable and immoral requirements to win, Miyako gets pissed and snaps on the “mystery voice”. Suddenly the lights go out. The girls scream. The lights come back on, reilluminating the white room. They can see Miyako bound to a grotesque torture device. “Anyone who quits the game will die” Her screaming begins in tandem with the electrical current. With eyes wide open in fear, she pisses and shits herself. Everyone else starts freaking out. However, Keisuke seemed to be getting aroused by Miyako’s appearance. That was his secret, his urge to assault and humiliate girls.
However, Nemu could see right through him and knew. Nemu takes advantage, forcing the protagonist to submit to him as she brings her lips up to his: “This is a contract kiss.” Keisuke was surprised by Nemu’s behavior but he wants to protect Kanae and decides for the sake of escaping, he will violate the others. Can Keisuke escape the white rooms and return to his normal life? Or will he hold back his own dark urges…? ―――It is you who decides in the end.
