Fruits Basket double feature, 3x Okojosan in HanaLaLa 14/2007 shōjo magazine

Backdated, toshokan post —

HanaLaLa 14/2007

Despite some panel doctoring owing to Indonesian market "sensibilities" (whatever that means, though the excisions did receive the manga-ka's imprimatur), we're presented with two chapters of Fruits Basket in the fourteenth issue of HanaLaLa, the Indonesian mangazine that serializes Hakusensha's Hana to Yume (Hana) and LaLa shōjo titles in (where else but) Indonesia. We also get a triple dose of Uno Ayumi-sensei's Mr. Ermine (Okojosan), the series spotlit on this edition's front cover.

The Elex Media-published magazine contains, additionally, a full-color title spread of Kure Yuki-sensei's Kin Iro no Corda Symphony No. 14 and an FC title page for the same numbered chapter of Bijo ga Yaju by Matsumoto Tomo-sensei.

Thirteen HtY and LaLa manga are currently in serialization, and following are their latest installments in the 14 May 2007 HanaLaLa edition.

Looking for other language versions? (Links to Amazon)

Some of these titles, like Oniichan to Issho—released as Me & My Brothers, are available in English from Amazon.com. You might want to check them out in the search box ^^

And yes (this serves as my full disclosure), there's a little something for me to spend on more manga if you decide to order from links that look like this (that's a link to the Gakuen Alice search page) ^^
