Yakuza bosses are supposed to be tough, ruthless, and treat their men like cogs in a callous criminal machine. When former cop and ex-con Chikara Doumeki accepts his latest bodyguard assignment, however, he realizes that there's something different about his new boss, Yashiro. Because while Yashiro may seem as emotionally distant as his counterparts, he's also a closet masochist who enjoys receiving pain as much as his job involves bringing it. Yashiro's feelings for a least a few of his men also extends far beyond what's normally extended to other members of the same crime family… a group that now includes Chikara. Of course, Chikara's got his own issues, and nobody can beat an ex-cop when it comes to putting the lockdown on a relationship. Except, possibly, a true King of Pain!

Did Riko Yuki's life go to hell in a handbasket when a naked alien princess from the planet Deviluke suddenly appeared in his bathtub and he found himself betrothed into the universe's most dysfunctional romantic relationship? No, but only because he never got a damned handbasket. Even if the luscious Princess Lala is finally starting to admit her real feelings for her earthling scum significant other, there are so many other things constantly going wrong that Riko's doing well just to survive. Whether it's due to bounty hunters, a defective transporter, body switches, alien skunks, mighty morphing power bathrooms, a sleepover that goes horribly, horribly wrong, or, that worst galactic scourge of all, Valentine's Day, each day seems determined to prove why you should never, ever, marry a monster from outer space!

The ultimate Regimental Food War continues as the culinary rebels led by Soma and the members of Kyokusei square off against epicurean elitist Azami and the Totsuki Ten. At stake – the future of dining across Japan. Because if the rebels fail, Azami intends to impose his own tastes and techniques on the entire restaurant industry! But the fine dining control freak has made a serious mistake in threatening the futures of Soma’s friends and family, as while the rebels may seem less experienced overall, this is ultimately a clash of skill, dedication, and, most of all, taste. That may be a recipe for disaster for the seasoned veterans! There are truffled times ahead, and it’s anyone’s guess as to whose goose will ultimately be cooked!
