Arakure - The Wild Ones starts, MeruPuri ends Indonesian serialization in HanaLaLa 22/2008 shōjo magazine

This is a backdated post; I'm doing it for my library reference (actually just being anal).

HanaLaLa 22/2008

Hino Matsuri-sensei's MeruPuri: The Märchen Prince finishes its Indonesian serialization in the HanaLaLa mangazine, while another series—Arakure - The Wild Ones by Fujiwara Kiyo-sensei—starts. Arakure gets a full-color title page that's customary for series premieres. What isn't routine (at least, not in recent memory) is for an issue to feature full-color *spreads* for three other series: Alice Academy; Kin Iro no Corda; and Penguin Revolution.

(And for Ootori Kyouya fans, the Ouran installment is Kyouya-centric; it's the equivalent to the anime episode 17: 鏡夜の不本意な休日 Kyouya no fuhoni na kyujitsu or Kyouya's reluctant day off.)

Following is the list of Hana to Yume and LaLa shōjo manga currently being serialized by Elex Media, and their latest installments in the 29 January 2008 HanaLaLa.

Looking for other language versions? (Links to Amazon)

Some of these titles, like Arakure (Wild Ones) by Fujiwara Kiyo-sensei, are also 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 MeruPuri search page) ^^
