HAPPY SAIN†SHEOL by 122px no Meido
Two thousand years ago, the Pestis Disaster swept through the land, corrupting all living things and making it to difficult to live on the land. For those that still wish to live on this dead land, a temple was established. It was known as Saint Sheol of the Underworld.
With the help of a distant relative, I moved to the capital that I had longed to live in, and began work as a trainee priest at Saint Sheol.
Every day I endured pain and suffering in this unfamiliar land. On one particular day, when I was in truly dire straits, an angel appeared before me in my dreams. “Don’t worry,” she gently whispered. It was truly a vision that seemed impossible. I knew the face of that angel.
Before the looming disaster stood 6 girls. Within the deepest corner of the temple was fear, miracles, love… and lust.
Having touched the darkest darkness the world has seen, one must now face the dazzling light.
Thus I pose this question.
Whose wings did I see that day?

Raspberry Cube by madosoft
From this day on, I will change.
I will do good for others.
In essence, I’ll aim to do one good deed a day.
Due to a certain incident in his past, Azuma Satoru’s mantra is to do good for others. He has returned to the town of Kawae, where he used to live up until his parents divorced.
Here, he rescued Kaidou Mikoto, the daughter of a landlord who was being harassed by thugs.
He helped out Kanou Minato, the lone member of the gardening club who cultivated a field by herself.
After school, he helps out part-time with Yuzuki Yuu who works at an understaffed military hobby store.
It looks like Satoru’s life around helping others is going well.
However, his meeting with Ruri, the class president doesn’t turn out the same way. After crossing paths with her, she appears before him the next day. Perhaps she was here to thank him for doing something? He wondered as he gave chase…
Only to find himself waist deep in dirt. Ruri then takes a picture of the silly predicament he found himself in before running away.
“Did… I do something to make her hold a grudge against me?”
Years after returning to his hometown, Satoru’s life is about to get a little chaotic…
Parfait Remake by Entergram
“Brick Mall” is a huge shopping center that has been designed with a medieval European town motif.
With the grand opening set to take place in a few months, it’s beginning to be more aggressive in their attempts to lure in popular restaurants.
“famille” is a European-style antique coffee shop run by our hero, and his older sister-in-law, Ema.
They lost their previous location due to a fire, and while they’ve been closed they receive an invitation from Brick Mall to open a location there.
Seeing this as a chance to revive their shop, Hitoshi begins to gather the currently scattered staff.
One, then a second returns, but some do not.
Even though things aren’t going exactly to plan, once they’ve gotten to the point where they’re ready to open the shop, they see a sign for the shop directly opposite of them go up.
The name written on the sign is “curio”. It’s a European-style antique coffee shop that has the exact same kind of concept as famille.
This makes sense, as famille is sort of based on curio.
We don’t stand a chance against the real deal?
As he deals with friends who are against the idea, all Hitoshi can do is try his best, even though he has no real chance of winning, and is short-handed on top of that.
Suddenly, a young lady named Yui appears before him, clad in the shop’s uniform and wanting to work at famille.
Her smile and her heart-catching singing voice make Hitoshi feel like they just might have a fighting chance.
And so as they hold onto a sliver of hope, they finally open the doors to the shop.
For some reason, Hitoshi ends up making a bet against one of the staff at the opposing shop, Rea, about who will have the best profits.
Having done so, he turns to his staff and declares,
“Let’s take down curio!”
INUPARA by NEKOWORKs
Transported?! Another world?!
A protagonist sent to a world with humanoid dogs!
A young man who attends college while working part time as a pet groomer.
Although he lives by himself, he has two dogs—a Pomeranian named Tanpopo and a Shiba named Himawari.
One day, Tanpopo and Himawari randomly turned into girls.
The dogs from his sister’s and his parents’ place come to live with him as well, which causes him to panic.
As he freaks out, a girl with the same name as the Corgi he kept at his parents’ house in his childhood, Botan,
starts to talk about things only he and Botan would know, which ends up slowly convincing him.
As expected of someone who works part time as a pet groomer, his brushing skills are top notch.
He’s skilled enough to even cut hair if he wanted.
However, since he doesn’t have the qualifications, he only gives cuts to his dogs at home.
He’s always had his older sister, a master coddler, trying to smother him since childhood,
so he has the skills to deal with girls and dogs with slightly difficult personalities.
