Nitta Arata is a typical 21 year-old junior attending college of science and engineering at Toaru University. He is bright, he is in the engineering program after all, but he definitely is from a working class background. He has been working his way through college for the past 3 years without major incident, so being swept up in a warped experiment of an equally warped professor was the last thing he expected in the second half of his college days.
One day, Arata received a letter asking him to meet someone whose initials were N.H at a relatively secluded location on campus. The letter looked suspiciously like a love letter, but Arata had his doubts. More likely it was a cruel practical joke perpetrated by one of his buddies, especially when the initials matched those belonging to Nogi Hatsune", also know as Miss Engineer, the reigning heartthrob of the engineering department. Why would somebody like her be interested in a nobody like himself? The short answer was that she would not be interested, but why take the chance of missing out? So there was Arata, in ultra-cynical mode, waiting at the appointed location when he was suddenly grabbed from behind! His last thoughts as world turned to black was that the gloved hands covering his mouth and nose reeked of ether...

Yuri Shibuya was living a pretty normal life. That changed the day he was dunked into a toilet after an attempt to save a classmate from a gang of bullies. Instead of just getting a good soaking, he's pulled in. The next thing he knows, he's in a world that vaguely resembles medieval Europe. If that's not odd enough, he's told that he is to be the next Maoh, just because he has black hair and black eyes. The Maoh is the King of the Mazoku, who are coexisting not-so-peacefully with the humans in this world. Much to his subject's dismay, he's totally different from the rulers they're accustomed to. He's kind, considerate, a believer in justice, and not willing to use violence to solve conflicts. Not exactly someone they want running a country on the very brink of war. Now, Yuri has to deal with trying to become a good Maoh, while at the same time attempting to adapt to this land's customs and culture, all in a world where the tension between the humans and Mazoku is reaching its peak.

From September scanlations:
17-year-old Kaidou Haru isn’t too happy to be spending his summer vacation in the wilds of Canada with his eccentric, estranged mother, but when she saddles him with civilizing his new adopted brother, 8-year-old wild child Ren, he takes up the mantle with aplomb, gradually learning to navigate the boy’s unruly demeanor and fostering a close bond that prompts him to invite Ren to come live with him in Japan once he graduates, hoping Ren can experience what it’s like to have a real family. But falls from such heights of happiness usually give way to the deepest depths of despair…
Junjou Romantica: Takahashi Misaki is suddenly having some unexpected and odd problems. What started as a need for some college entrance exam tutoring has somehow led him to being romanced by a suave older man who also happens to be his big brotherâ€™s best friend. Confused by all of his brand new emotions, Misaki struggles to deal with his suddenly very odd life. And if that wasnâ€™t enough, his suitor, Usami Akihiko, has plenty of issues of his own. A man-child who decorates his room in giant teddy bears and toys, Usami is a famous novelist who also writes steamy boysâ€™ love novels on the side. When Misaki cracks open one of these books and reads sentences like â€œUsami licks every inch of Misakiâ€™s hot bodyâ€â€¦well, letâ€™s just say that all hell breaks loose.
Junjou Egoist: Kamijou Hiroki is a broken man, consumed by unrequited love for his childhood friend, Usami Akihiko (the boys' love novelist). Along comes Kusama Nowaki, whose name "Nowaki" means "typhoon", an orphan working his way through life since middle school. Like the typhoon he is named for, he whirls into Hiroki's life and heart, blowing all resistance away before him.
Junjou Terrorist: As fate would have, Miyagi You (the professor that Kamijou Hiroki works for as an assistant professor) and Takatsuki Shinobu, Miyagiâ€™s bossâ€™ son AND his ex-wifeâ€™s younger brother, would cross paths. Shinobu, who says whateverâ€™s on his mind, tries to break into Miyagiâ€™s world, saying things like, â€œits destiny!â€ While the 18 year-old tries to invade Miyagiâ€™s world, the 35 year-old still harbors a deep-rooted love for his late teacher. Being the Terrorist he is, Shinobu breaks down the walls that Miyagi has caged himself in, dramatically changing the Professorâ€™s heart and demanding Miyagi take responsibility and face destinyâ€¦
Junjou Minimum tells the story of Usami and Hiroki's past, showing how they met and how Hiroki's un-requited love came to be. There are also a chapters about Misaki's past.
There is also a short 4 chapter story entitled Junjou Mistake/Mystique. This is set 10 years before the beginning of the other stories and follows RyÅ«ichirÅ Isaka (the executive director of Marukawa Publishing Company- which publishes Usami Akihikoâ€™s works) and his secretary, Kaoru Asahina. The two were playmates when they were young, after RyÅ«ichirÅ's father took the Asahina's in and employed them. Over the years, RyÅ«ichirÅ came to love Asahina, but he believes it to be in vain as he is convinced Kaoru is in love with his father. Unbeknownst to Isaka, Asahina harbors feelings for him in return.
