“Link’s adventures across Hyrule introduce him to two powerful allies—the Oracle of Seasons and the Oracle of Ages—and pit him against a pair of nefarious villains—General Onox and the Sorceress of Shadows. To win the day he must quest from winter to summer and beyond the veil of time itself.”

If you have the premium Crunchyroll membership then you can view, volume 4 of Momokuri and volume 3 of How To Keep a Mummy!
“A tender high school romantic comedy, Momokuri as “Momotsuki-kun and Kurihara-san’s earnest, embarrassing, and easygoing romantic comedy.”
How To Keep A Mummy Description:
“When high school student Sora Kashiwagi finds himself staring down a mysterious oversized package sent to him by his self-proclaimed “adventurer” father, the last thing he expects is for it to be opened from the inside… by a little mummy so small it can fit in the palm of his hand!”
Time to get your manga reading on!
Are you an Absolute Duo fan? Well guess what?! Seven Seas have announced the Absolute Duo manga adaptation. Shin’ichirō Nariie will be in the driver seat as the illustrator for the 2013 three-volume ongoing adaptation of the light novel series by Takumi Hiiragiboshi and Yū Asaba, which was adapted into a 2015 TV anime.
Want to know more about the series? Absolute Duo is described as:
“To avenge the death of his younger sister, Tor Kokonoe enters the prestigious Koryo Academy, a high school dedicated to training its students to wield Blaze—individualized weapons that are manifestations of one’s soul. While the future of a student is often determined by the form their weapon takes, Tor is an Irregular, whose Blaze appears as a shield instead of a melee weapon.
How can Tor possibly learn to use his defensive abilities to fight effectively? That’s when the Duo system comes in, a program where students are paired up as battle mates, classmates and roommates. Tor’s is paired with a silver-haired girl from Scandinavia named Julie Sigtuna, who possesses a power the likes of which has never been seen, and shares his thirst for revenge.”
Sounds pretty damn cool to us!
