Okay, we have 19 May 2008 as the street date for these manga and manhwa previewed in the m&c! May 2008 release list; I call that good timing, given that the Buddhist festival Waisak (Vesak) Day falls this year on the 20th and being a public holiday, affords some lovely, early-in-the-week escapism with manga.
You may consider curling up with Miyawaki Yukino-sensei's Lunatic Honey but I'm betting you're eyeing that second volume of Ah, Dear Banchou! (Aa! Itoshi no Banchou-sama) instead. Or barring that, the third tankōbon of the serialized from the maiden issue of Cherry Shogakukan series Beauty Pop by Arai Kiyoko-sensei.
Personally though, I have a marshmallow-gooey spot for the character Ecchan (Etsu) from Angel From The End (Seikimatsu no Angel) which releases its second volume this Monday (or Sunday, depending on the speed of Gramedia's deliveries). So that one is going into the shopping basket.
- Ah, Dear Banchou! (Aa! Itoshi no Banchou-sama) 2 of 3+ by Fujikata Mayu
- Angel From The End (Seikimatsu no Angel) 2 of 4 by Kurahashi Erika
- Beauty Pop 3 of 7 by Arai Kiyoko
- Dai's Attack (Dai no Attack) 3 of 6 by Izumi Makoto
- Goong 14 of 17+ by Park SoHee
- NEW Lunatic Honey by Miyawaki Yukino
- Rainbow Miracle (Nanairo Miracle) 3 of 7 by Kanaki Shiori
- Shanaou Yoshitsune 22 of 22 by Sawada Hirofumi
And again mindful of the Elex price increase, please note that these m&c! manga are reportedly still going for IDR 12,000 per tankōbon—with the exception of Dai's Attack which was already IDR 13,000 to begin with.
