If you’ve been searching for a new manga series to discover—or if you’ve been looking for the perfect new series to gift to a friend or teen family member —look no further than these five, fabulous series below!

 

 

Again!! (Ages 16+)
By Mitsurou Kubo, creator of Moteki and one of the minds behind Yuri!!! On ICE 

 

Kinichiro Imamura isn’t a bad guy, really, but on the first day of high school his narrow eyes and bleached blonde hair made him look so shifty that his classmates assumed the worst. Three years later, without any friends or fond memories, he isn’t exactly feeling bittersweet about graduation. But after an accidental fall down a flight of stairs, Kinichiro wakes up three years in the past… on the first day of high school! Has he really gone back in time, or is this just a crazy dream? An encounter with an awkwardly eccentric fellow student might give Kinichiro the chance to live a different version of his dull high school life—if can just bring himself to seize the chance…

 

Again!! Volumes 1 through 6 are available now —Volume 7 coming March 19, 2019!

Frau Faust (Ages 16+)
By Kore Yamazaki, creator of The Ancient Magus’ Bride 

 

More than a century after an eccentric scholar made an infamous deal with a devil, the story of Faust has passed into legend. However, the true Faust is not the stuffy, professorial man known in fairy tales, but a charismatic, bespectacled woman named Johanna Faust, who happens to still be alive. Searching for pieces of her long-lost demon, Johanna passes through a provincial town, where she saves a young boy named Marion from a criminal’s fate. In exchange, she asks a simple favor of Marion, but Marion soon finds himself intrigued by the peculiar Doctor Faust and joins her on her journey.

 

Frau Faust is complete in 5 volumes—Read the first chapter here!

By Yoshitoki Oima, creator of A Silent Voice 

 

A lonely boy wandering the desolate tundra meets a wolf, and the two become fast friends, depending on each other to survive the harsh environment. But the boy has a history, and the wolf is more than meets the eye as well … To Your Eternity is a totally unique and moving manga about death, life, reincarnation, and the nature of love.
