Lovely Complex finale out 22 October (Elex Media 22 October 2008 manga and manhwa)

名探偵夢水清志郎事件ノート 7

I would have posted the happy cover of the final LoveCom volume 17 up here—had I not been derailed by this worried-looking (but still droolishious) cover for the seventh Kiyoshiro Yumemizu tankō that's making me want to reinvest in Enue Kei-sensei's series. (If you want the LoveCom cover, there's a thumbnail behind the release link.)

These two shōjo titles while garnering some Get! pledges trail the shōnen Rocket Man 5 by Katou Motohiro-sensei, Anzai Nobuyuki-sensei's MAR 6 (of course, the series had only been missing from circulation since mid-July), Adachi Mitsuru-sensei's Touch 9, and Segami Akira-sensei's Kagetora 9 manga in the popularity stakes.

New series Elex Media also has one premiere this release list—the two-volume shōnen series Kiseki no Inu, retitled Miracle Dog for the Indonesian market.
