Midori is a Tomboy 6 shoujo manga out now (and yes, 3L comics is a licensed manga purveyor!)

うわさの翠くん!! 6

Since m&c! has yet to publish its manga schedule for next week, I might as well post about a non-Gramedia release—volume 6 of Midori is a Tomboy (Uwasa no Midori-kun!!), 3L comics' latest.

For all that it looks non-legit, 3L comics (a Tiga Lancar Semesta imprint) actually publishes licensed, almost exclusively Shogakukan manga in Indonesian. Its A-listers include Takada Rie-sensei (H3 School, Heart, Wild Act) and Midori-kun's manga-ka, Ikeyamada Go-sensei (Moe Kare!!). I don't usually post 3L releases, for the simple reason that it doesn't release schedules (the titles just pop up in Gramedia without warning).

The sixth volume of this shōjo title starring bifauxnen Yamate Midori who enrolls in an all-boys school to beat childhood friend Hino Tsukasa in soccer, continues the rabu triangle travails of Midori, Tsukasa, and Midori's roomie Shinbashi Kazuma. This tankō picks up from Midori running after Tsukasa who deliberately lost to Jinbo in the soccer match between Tsukasa's school and Kaimei High. The thing to look forward to is the resolution of the Big Secret, with Tsukasa promising to tell Midori why he's been acting as such an a*se all this time, and Tsukasa asking rival Kazuma to protect Midori from Jinbo in the upcoming match.

Originally serialized in Sho-Comi, the series spans 10 volumes, with a fanbook thrown in. Depending on the resolution to this bubbly opera, this title stands to become my favorite guilty pleasure Ikeyamada Go-sensei manga, trouncing even Get Love!! Field no Oujisama.

UP NEXT
Still hoping that it's gonna be m&c!'s 3 November 2008 manga

~niki DBA huamulan03 (花木蘭03) who's wondering how she can get paws on the Nintendo DS game Uwasa no Midori-kun: Summer Strike (released 20 September 2007) that reportedly stars Midorikawa Hikaru-san as Tsukasa and Ishida Akira-san as Kazuma

P.S. That advisory comes from Ikeyamada Go-sensei's quarter-column chats in volume 4.

P.P.S. Yes. I am a Tsukasa-sama fangirl ^^
