Michibata no Tenshi by EMURA concludes Indonesian serialization in second anniversary issue of HanaLaLa

Roadside Angel chapter 24 title page

Per earlier advisory, Roadside Angel or by EMURA-sensei wraps its Indonesian serialization in the second anniversary edition of , the mangazine that serializes 's and titles in Indonesia—with a full-color title page for chapter 24.

Penguin Revolution sticker

Likewise included in HanaLaLa 24/2008 (front cover illustration: ) are two chapters of Nakamura Yoshiki-sensei's and further full-color title pages for ; Penguin Kakumei; Kin Iro no Corda; Arakure; and Furuba. That's more than the usual; it comes with this being an anniversary issue, one supposes.

And because it's a birthday edition, we also get the freebie on the right. Much as I wanted it to be a Penguin Kakumei drama CD (like what LaLa gave away on its 28th and 29th anniversaries), it wasn't going to transform like some mahou shoujo and ultimately, remains a sticker. Ah, well. At least it's Ryou.

The list of Hana to Yume and LaLa shoujo titles currently in serialization, and their latest installments in HanaLaLa is behind the cut.
