Plot: Eita Touga, a seemingly normal high school student, is secretly the heir apparent to a distinguished line of ninja. Unfortunately for the Touga Clan, Eita has no interest in taking over the family business. More interested in the virtual reality of video games than real life, Eita has sequestered himself to a life of digital bliss.
That is until one fateful day, a mysterious harpy girl kicks in the door to his family dojo and spirits Eita away to a world full of monsters and mythological creatures. Can an unwilling slacker of a ninja like Eita help the denizens of another world stave off an invasion by a technologically-superior empire?
There is a prototype manga before 12 Beast, a must read for Okayado fans:
Seven Seas Entertainment announced on Wednesday that it has acquired the digital publishing license for OKAYADO's one-shot manga "Deadline Summoner" ("Shisen no Shōkanshi"). The company released the manga digitally in North America for US$2.99 on Wednesday.
Seven Seas describes the story as a "prototype short" to OKAYADO's other series 12 Beast. The story follows average video game fan Mamoru Onodera, who is transported to another dimension where he encounters magic and monster girls. OKAYADO published the 39-page manga in Kadokawa's Dragon Age magazine in May 2012.
Seven Seas also publishes OKAYADO's Monster Musume and 12 Beast manga.
Manga creator OKAYADO announced on his Twitter account on Sunday that his 12 Beast manga has been canceled.
OKAYADO explained that there were many reasons for the manga's cancelation. He recounted the incident of his editor asking him "When's the last chapter of Monster Musume?" (OKAYADO's other manga), while he was taking time to recover his mental health. OKAYADO felt at the time that the editor had been asking him to quickly finish Monster Musume, even though the editor told him that they did not mean that. OKAYADO mentioned that he couldn't really be sure, and it made him anxious and unable to draw.
OKAYADO acknowledged that it was not a good idea to leave a work half-finished, but he reached a mental state where he was unable to draw. He added that, when he floated the idea of canceling 12 Beast to his editor, the editor did not even suggest that the manga only go on hiatus. So OKAYADO felt that the manga was truly being treated as already canceled, and he lost motivation to continue.

Taka: Didn't see anything until I read the description and comments. It goes by really fast. Edit: Someone really sneak in a picture. Edit 2: Tried pausing to find it. It's harder to track compared to REZERO's IF pictures

Old Man Dream: Set the playback speed on the video to 0.25x. Should make it easier to get a good pause on one of the two naughty bits. Both appear around 0:19ish in the video.
