Two Princesses. No, three, actually: Tsen Shiau-Jing's Cavalier Princess (originally Qi Shi Gong Zhu), Princess' Dog (AKA Her Majesty's Dog or Joousama no Inu) by Takeuchi Mick, and manhwa-ga Han SeungWon's Princess. Volumes 3, 10, and 30 of these graphic novels will go on sale this coming Wednesday.

Princess' Dog heads the shoujo manga picks, but in the duking it out fight for Get! supremacy, Elex forum post-ers went with volume 3 of Mashima Hiro-sensei's fantasy comedy FAIRY TAIL, followed by volume 4 of Katou Motohiro-sensei's shounen tantei manga   C.M.B. In a three-way tie for third place: Eyeshield 21 volume 20, Mr. Fullswing 16, and Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle 5.

release highlights

Penultimates
You already know from the post title that the Dan Doh!! sequel finishes its Indonesian publication run this 12 November. Three more titles are about to conclude: the Two Princesses (Princess Dog and Cavalier Princess) and a shounen commoner, Cop in Tokyo (volume 7 of 8).

By genre
Half shounen (there are nine). Shoujo and soonjung only account for five titles out of 17, with one manga each for seinen (Kamen Rider Spirits 4) and josei (the awaited Sentarou 30).

By publisher
As blatantly hinted at by the day-before release of Nakayoshi and Shonen Magz, you could've already deduced that Kodansha would pwn this sked. Five of the tankō list—Ahiru no Sora, C.M.B., Fairy Tail, Souryuuden, and Tsubasa—are/were serialized in Shounen Magazine, versus two apiece from Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump (Eyeshield 21, Mr. Fullswing) and Shogakukan's Shonen Sunday (Cop in Tokyo, Dan Doh!! Xi).
