Seven Seas Entertainment announced on Monday that it has licensed Ryōma Kitada's SUPER HXEROS (Dokyū Hentai HxEros) manga. Seven Seas Entertainment will release the first volume physically and digitally on February 2021.

Seven Seas Entertainment describes the manga:

When the mantis-like aliens known as Kiseichuu descend on Earth, they have one goal: eradicate the human race. They do so by absorbing humans' H-energy--the sexual passion that fuels so many people and keeps the species reproducing! The government has assembled an elite team of superheroes to fight the bugs, aided by technology that allows them to transfer their erotic energy into super powers.

High schooler Retto Enjo is recruited onto the team, partnering with four beautiful girls, one of whom is his childhood friend Kirara Hoshino. Though they were once close, they've grown apart in recent years, since Kirara turned distant and aloof after an encounter with the Kiseichuu in her youth. Can Retto save the world, keep his team together, and maybe even melt his childhood friend's newly cold exterior?

In an advertisement for the upcoming One Piece Magazine volume 10 on September 4, this year's 35th issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine teased on Monday that Eiichiro Oda's One Piece manga is "headed toward the upcoming final arc." The advertisement did not give any more specifics.

The 10th volume of the magazine will also start Boichi's adaptation of the One Piece: Ace's Story novels.

Oda reported in a YouTube video posted in September 2019 that he "wants to end [the One Piece story] in five years."

While he was still in high school, Oda was a runner-up for the Tezuka Award for new creators from Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine in 1992. He began serializing the One Piece manga in Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump manga on July 19, 1997.

Shizuka Furuya Returns to Voice Acting 5 Years After Paralyzing Accident

Voice actress Shizuka Furuya announced on Saturday that she is returning to voice acting work, five years after announcing her retirement in 2015. In an interview with the Animate Times website, she revealed that the reason she retired in 2015 was due to being hit by a truck in a traffic accident, with half of her body subsequently being paralyzed.

Furuya added that she had made her original retirement announcement only on her Twitter account, as she was a freelance voice actress at the time and was not working under a talent agency. However, she was asked by her producer recently if she would consider returning to voice acting, and she also received an offer for work from her former agency Production Ace at around the same time. She added that the job offer was not aware that she was retired, and that her fellow Nichijō voice actress Mariko Honda was similarly unaware that Furuya had retired. Furuya noted that she had locked her Twitter account when she announced her retirement.

After her retirement, Furuya worked a number of jobs, but used her work leave to take a vacation in South Korea.

Furuya is perhaps best known for voicing the character Nano Shinonome in Kyoto Animation's Nichijou - My Ordinary Life comedy anime. She also voiced AUGA1 in Upotte!! and Rhine X1 in Robot Girls Z.
