Burned Out Heroes

Japanese title: Burned Out Heroes

Author: big bear

Genre: Action, Drama, Mecha, Sci-Fi, Military/War

Start date: Saturday, May 16, 2020.

Synopsis:

The discovery of a miracle substance called “anamnesis” that allows human brain waves to alter matter itself plunges mankind into an all-out war, the Anamnesisian Conflict. Cyborg 01 (ZeroOne), a hero of the war, now wanders through its aftermath, roaming from place to place with Karen, a girl with the power to bend digital networks to her will.

The pair visit a massive artificial island dubbed the “Soul Settler” during their travels. A request to look into the disappearance of Erde Hadias, the daughter of a Federation Parliament member, awaited 01 upon arrival. A colossal conspiracy lurked behind the scenes, however, and now the two of them are in the eye of the storm.

A word from the author:
“I’ve written novels in a variety of genres, from historical fiction to superheroes.”

Genre: Comedy, Fantasy, Short Story, Isekai, Thriller

Start date: Saturday, May 16, 2020.

Synopsis:

On his first ever graveyard shift at the local convenience store, Haru Muramatsu has to contend with a genuine, albeit out-of-touch, demon lord. His clientele only gets weirder from there, ranging from kappa to kuchisake-onna. Each chapter brings new challenges for the snarky (but secretly altruistic) cashier, and no two customers are the same!

Author: Akiraizun

Genre: Action, Fantasy, Survival, Isekai, Military/War

Start date: Friday, May 15, 2020.

Synopsis:

During a school trip, my classmates and I are suddenly dragged into the middle of a raging war. A crazy woman tells us that we’re on another planet and won’t be able to return to Earth unless we take back a castle from the enemy. She grants us powers to do battle, but while all of my classmates obtain powerful skills, I can’t seem to activate mine. That’s because my skill is the ability to turn my dead classmates’ souls into weapons.

Thus begins a grand tale of a banished man taking revenge for his murdered classmates.

A word from the author:
“I am an Osakan light novel author who loves games and animals.”
