First comes marriage, then comes an earthbound love that is out of this world! From the day his parents named him, Nasa Yuzaki has been destined for outer space…or so he believes.

Is she an alien, a moon goddess or something else? Since she insists on marrying him, Nasa has plenty of chances to find out!

I’m actually going to be taking a break from lettering for a short while but I’ll be back!

Yuri Wall by Setaseta

A cute series where someone is reincarnated as a wall in an apartment where they can observe yuri relationships up close! It’s actually super hilarious and yes, I originally was hooked with the kabedon cover.

And for some reason, the residents of the apartment room are always two girls in yuri relationship… Let’s support these cute and heartwarming couples together with the passionate wall in “Yuri Wall”!
