Eyeshield21 v16, MAR Omega 2, Kungfu Boy Legends 3, Mr. Fullswing 15, Roulette Battler 1: Elex Media 10 September 2008 manga

C.M.B.森羅博物館の事件目録 2

S hōnarchy! Thirteen of Elex's 19 manga and manhwa this 10 September are targeted at boys, boys, boys! No pejorative meant though—not when the second volume of C.M.B. and Rocket Man volume 4, shōnen titles I fangirl, swagger (stagger?) into next week's list.

And much as I rave over Katou Motohiro-sensei squirreling in C.M.B. and RM, Katou-sensei's not the only Kodansha manga-ka with two titles on offer. Maekawa Takeshi-sensei likewise flogs two: Kungfu Boy Legends 3 and the premiere of Roulette Battler, which is a month late like the manga-ization of L. Frank Baum's The Wizard of Oz (illustrated by Igarashi Yumiko-sensei) and Souryuuden, retitled for Indonesia as Dragon Brothers.

The one new manga (of four) that follows schedule is the shōjo Pink Innocent by Momoyuki Kotori-sensei, creator of How to Make a Prince.

By popularity
I already hinted as to which titles have queues long enough to spiral like unbroken apple peels, but to reiterate (and complete), they are:

Eyeshield 21 volume 16
MÄR Omega 2 (b'cause, y'know, the prequel's Indonesian run ain't done yet)
Kungfu Boy Legends 3 (which also appears in its serial form in ShoMagz 50)
Mr. Fullswing 15
C.M.B. 2
Sersan Keroro 11
Tail of the Moon 7
Trinity Blood 10
Eat-Man 3
Rocket Man 4

The hopefully not nominal shōjo Tsuki no Shippo 7 also runs away with the coveted fastest turnover honor. The preceding volume came out the first week of September. By contrast, the most Patience-stretching award goes to Keroro Gunsou 11 (last released one year ago—12 September 2007).

By original publisher
As indicated by the presence of the Indonesian version of Weekly (or Monthly) Shounen Magazine, this roster is heavy on Kodansha which has seven titles up for grabs. Not including the monthly anthology, these manga were/are serialized in Gekkan Shounen Magazine (3); Nakayoshi (2); Weekly Shounen Magazine (1); and BonBon (1).

The next most "prolific" is Shueisha, with its three Shonen Jump- and Margaret-serialized manga.

~niki DBA huamulan03 (花木蘭03) who observes that two titles—Cantarella and Trinity Blood—release their respective on-hiatus-after-this volume 10's this 10 September—and you know what that means.
