Started reading the new Thirdline titles on futekiya. These really came as a surprise, it was like announcement and then woosh they were one the website.
The one with the super long title about Nobunaga has to be my favorite (my weakness for yakuza contributing to that sorta), but the two Shuuma titles are interesting in their own way. The art isn't fabulous but the story and the characters are actually good??
Mirage (a.k.a. Rent-a-Boyfriend lol) goes into my too-short-I-want-more reading list. The ending gave me so much pain...
I'll check out Touch of a Brush once I clear my Julian pub backlog.
Anyway, any idea who is behind Thirdline and why they have these titles? Manga Planet got their classic Shonen Jump titles from them but I can't find info if Thirdline's actually connected with Jump or simply acquired the publishing rights.
Thirdline isn't connected to Shonen Jump. The mangaka for those old titles hold the rights to their work and they took them to that company for distribution. Going by what I could garner from the translation of their website when I went looking, I think they mostly manage digital production and rights management of previously published works but also do some limited original publishing, hence the bl titles too.
ngl, it kinda felt like most of these were just kinda thrown in as a bonus when they were negotiating for the titles for Manga Planet, but I am so feeling the Nobunaga one for reasons I can't even begin to understand and am actually sad that there won't be a new chapter coming up soon.

There might be a chapter 3 on the horizon, checking the Japanese website it was released this summer so hopefully it will be coming soon.
