Tokyo Aliens Vol. 05. This thrilling sci-fi fantasy series welcomes you to Japan, a top ten destination for extraterrestrials looking for refuge, relaxation, a good time, or just to raise a little hell!
Join one unsuspecting Tokyoite as he discovers that intergalactic tourist relations can prove to be a lot more dangerous than they seem!
Our intrepid hero-in-training, Akira Gunji, and his somewhat terrifying boss, Reiji Amamiya, drop in on a black market auction that deals in the illegal trade of extraterrestrial creatures. When Akira suffers a near-lethal attack by one of the aliens, Amamiya inscrutably leaves him for dead! Surely the calculating AMO head has some plan in mind…but that falls by the wayside when Amamiya catches a glimpse of what’s inside the alien creature. Whatever it is succeeds in igniting his fury and triggering painful memories…
At long last, the spotlight of truth falls on the mysterious past that Amamiya and Akira’s father share!
NAOE is the creator of Aoharu x Machinegun and Tokyo Aliens.
Hot property! Other North American manga publishers have been eyeing Tokyo Aliens, and English rights were sold with multiple offers on it. Taking this and the overall positive fan reaction in Japan to the series, we have the makings of a strong seller on our hands.
Primed for fans! Like many of the bestselling series from Square Enix Japan’s GFantasy magazine—Black Butler, Toilet-Bound Hanako-kun, and The Case Study of Vanitas, to name a few—Tokyo Aliens features a hugely attractive cast of characters and dynamic plot created by the sure hand of a talented artist. This will not go amiss among the core manga fans.
Riding the BL wave! The Boys Love (BL) genre of manga has seen rapid growth in sales over the past few years, and the subtle yet unmissable BL tones in Tokyo Aliens (à la Black Butler) will hit home with the BL fanbase.
UFOs are big news! Tokyo Aliens plays thoughtfully with the subject of aliens walking among us. With the US government making proposals concerning unexplained aerial phenomena, chatter about extraterrestrial life and craft no longer belongs in the realm of conspiracy theory. Tokyo Aliens takes the conversation and explores one possibility of this new reality.
This material is suitable for readers ages 16+.
