    Aoharu X Machinegun, Vol. 1

    By Naoe

    Hotaru Tachibana is a girl (though all too frequently mistaken for a boy!) with a deep sense of justice. When a classmate informs Hotaru that she was bilked out of her cash by a shady host at a host club, Hotaru immediately rushes to confront the villain only to discover that the con man in question is her new neighbor! Worse, he proposes to settle their feud with firearms! Okay, it turns out that they're just toys, but when Hotaru is soundly defeated, she finds herself sucked into the world of survival games. Is this new world one she can actually escape??

    Tachibana and the others have started to hone their skills in preparation for competing in the TGC, the tournament to decide the strongest survival gamers.

Will there be trouble before the TGC can even get underway?!

    Tachibana is up against her most dangerous opponent yet as the first round of the TGC begins. Midori is a veteran survival gamer whose shared past with Matsuoka could spell defeat before the first shots are fired. Tachibana's out for revenge, but also in it for herself-if she can prove she's a valuable asset to the team by helping take down their rivals, surely she'll be safe letting Matsuoka and Yukimura in on her secret...? Which team will win this game when neither can afford to lose!?

But as she prepares to deliver her confession, she comes face to face with an unexpected proclamation from Matsuoka instead...!!

    "Hey, be my dog...You don't want them to find out, do you?"

    Since childhood, Haruki has lagged behind his twin brother, Haruka. Whether it's school or survival games, Haruki just can't seem to measure up. His latest one-on-one battle--ending in a crushing defeat--is the last straw. He lashes out at Hotaru's attempts to help and insists the other members of Toy Gun Gun will never forgive him for quitting. Can the team come together in time for the upcoming TGC? And what will Haruka do when a spot opens up on rival team Star White?
