Hana-Kimi 18, Descendants of Darkness 3, Shin Angyo Onshi 17 of 17 (Level Comics 14 October 2008 manga)

闇の末裔 3

Just a reminder: the Level Comics' new manga for 2009 post will be published soon. You may read "soon" as sometime between now and 31 December 2008, but as sure as the porpoise treading on my tail, I'll try to draft a little faster. For now, let's look at the mid-October releases.

After a half-year's wait, Descendants of Darkness returns, with volume 3 streeting 14 October 2008. Likewise for the latest installment of For You in Full Blossom AKA Hana-Kimi, though the wait for the latter is about a third that of the former. And I might as well spoil and tell you that the Indonesian Hana-Kimi will end in March next year, while Yami no Matsuei's finale will fall on August 2009. Those schedules are still tentative, so pray for a couple miracles that we may land these manga quicker. Barring that, place an order for the English versions; they've already concluded.

Be that as it may, we do get a series end—volume 17 of Shin Angyo Onshi—this release. Other titles—Hajime no Ippo, Life, and Hara Hidenori-sensei's When You Wish Upon A Star (originally Hoshi no Furu Machi)—are current, so I have no word on when their Indonesian runs will end.
