SYNOPSIS:  Ichiro Sato used to spend his life dreaming, pretending to be a great fantasy hero.  Pretend heroics, however, aren’t much protection from bullies and social ridicule. Now determined to follow a different path and fit in, Ichiro thought he’d managed to give up his old fantasies.  Until he encountered Ryouko Satou, who’s even more deeply immersed in her own imaginary world than Ichiro was—and is bullied just as cruelly for it. If he stands up for Ryouko, Ichiro could destroy the new life he’s trying to build.  But at the same time, the intensity of her fantasies and predicament reminds him all too vividly of the person he once was.  In the end, it may just be that the only one who can really rescue this damsel in distress is the dream hero that Ichiro thought he had buried forever in AURA.

SYNOPSIS:  The end of the war with the Gaz Empire only meant unemployment for former Saboteur Toru Acura.  So when he collides with fate in the form of a young girl carrying a coffin through a forest, it doesn’t take much convincing for Toru and his similarly inclined step-sister Akari to join young wizard Chaika on her bizarre quest: to collect the scattered body parts of the former Emperor.  Unfortunately, the severed pieces were carried off by the Heroes who killed him, and some think that reassembling them could restart the war!  On top of that, Chaika may not be who she claims to be, as there are others conducting similar missions all across the kingdoms.  Is Chaika a dead man’s daughter, picking up the pieces for burial, or is there something far more sinister in the works?  The winds of war are stirring and there are dragons waiting in the darkness ahead for CHAIKA – THE COFFIN PRINCESS!

In a bizarre turn of fate, Hayate finds himself in a world where his mistress is Maria, and Nagi no longer seems to exist!  Meanwhile, Nagi is having her own problems, trapped in an amusement park of doom!  What's going on and how does this relate to a mysterious silver-haired woman who seems to hold the key to everything?
