My Own Princess
Beautiful, smart, strong but unapproachable On Nuri finds her life upended by sexeh! Lee Sunwoo, couriering a message from a father she's never even known, let alone acknowledged. Bishie confesses to being Nuri's fiancé, an admission Nuri views with suspicion as Sunwoo is (to put it mildly) unlike anyone on the planet.
The Sunwoo × Nuri 'ship soon founders in The Love Triangle as the “alien” Sunwoo isn't Nuri's only husband prospect. And apparently,
Princess isn't a metaphor: Nuri's absentee dad rules a secret kingdom, or so sez Loyal Kiss in its Personalized Princess description (excerpted by Baka-Updates Manga).

I killed my sister.
Therefore, I will live as my sister.
Headstrong Nobara and sweet Kotori are identical twins. Since their father's death in an accident, they have lived apart: Kotori with their mother and Nobara with their grandmother.
Longing for mom underpins Nobara and Kotori's agreement to secretly swap places every week. The twin switch ends when Kotori is murdered whilst playing Nobara. Guilt-stricken, Nobara chooses to shed her own identity and live as Kotori.
Baka-Updates Manga sez that Japanese manga fans adore Momochi Reiko-sensei for
her unflinchingly realistic portrayal of the myriad serious issues facing teens today, which, regardless of my enduring love for Bond, negates any intention of a My Life GET! (I mentioned I wasn't in the mood for angst.) But perhaps this series is a bit lighter than the Level-published Momochi Reiko manga. (In addition to Bond, Level has also published The Door, Rumour and Secret.)
Strange cases of human combustion in the water bring PSI, a covert organization, out in force. PSI investigator Shirogane Hinako zeroes in on a young boy, Kirisaki Kirio, as the perp behind the supernatural crime.
Baka-Updates Manga IDs why officer Shirogane isolates Kirio from the suspects' line-up: he has the ability of electrocution.
Author Himenogi Haruhiko only has Out Code in his/her backlist, but artist Suzuragi Karin is credited with manga adapts of video games, most notably of the Higurashi When They Cry dōjin soft sound novel murder mystery series: Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni: Onikakushi-hen (When They Cry - Spirited Away by the Demon Chapter), Tsumihoroboshi-hen (When They Cry 2 - Atonement Chapter) and Matsuribayashi-hen (When They Cry 2 - Festival Accompanying Chapter).
A wizard from Vilata kingdom presents a mantle entrusted by someone. Sylth's retainers recognize the mantle as belonging to their lord. What has happened to the master wizard? And why do bizarre events follow in the mysterious mage's wake?
