New series

Libero Revolution!
by Tanaka Motoyuki
EX probably has the best synopsis of this Shonen Sunday-serialized volleyball manga—better than any I can dream up even on my most inspired day—so here it is:

LIBERO REVOLUTION features Mikimoto Kaname, a young man with a flair for volleyball. Bearing a grudge against famed the volleyball school Fujiwara Gakuen, which didn't acknowledge his skills as an attacker, he has wound up at Seikai high school, the one school that took a set from Fujiwara, except it turns out to be the wrong Seikai high school. To his great disappointment, this school's volleyball team turns out to be full of fluffy young men with no real volleyball drive or sense.

The following Sailor Fuku ni Onegai! summary is my translation of the Indonesian version by Elex.

Sweet God
Sailor Fuku ni Onegai! by Tanaka Meca

Accidental vandal Matsumoto Hinagiku's homerun ball smashes into the shrine behind her school, which results in her promotion to "God substitute" status, if the guardian dog that appears before her is to be believed. Her credulity stretches into belief when she is attacked and a samurai and the white guardian dog manifest to help her.

~niki DBA huamulan03 (花木蘭03) who's thinking of getting

骑士公主 2

Cavalier Princess solely based on the bishie on the cover. Any recommendations on the story?

I think Cavalier Princess is good enough for the Taiwanese as a mangaka

The story is interesting too (especially because I'm a fans of "princes and princesses story"

Nice post, thank you:)

huamulan03 said...

@ Jasmine-san,
I'll check Cavalier Princess out then ^^

huamulan03 said...

@ Watch anime online-san,
Thank you for the comment ^^

huamulan03 said...

Eep! I guess Bushin doesn't end at volume 5 because there's a volume 6 entry in the September Komikologi Elex ^^;;

Komik Review said...

I have read Libero Revolution manga. I love it and it's better than Attack manga.

huamulan03 said...

@ Komik Review-san,
Hi and thanks for dropping by and commenting ^^
I'm assuming that the "Attack" manga you're referring to is Dai's Attack? I wouldn't know as I don't follow the latter and am still thinking of whether to get Libero. BTW, how does Libero compare with that other Tanaka Motoyuki-sensei sports manga Aoizaka Baseball Club?
