Naruto 42, Eyeshield 21 v22, Yukan Club 16, Sherlock Holmes 7 (Elex Media 24 December 2008 manga)

スクール×ファイト 2

Late-breaking gift idea for those of us who prolly wouldn't be done with Christmas shopping by next week: the volume 21 to 30 One Piece manga box set that streets December 24th.

Of course this assumes (1) your gift recipient actually reads One Piece—in Indonesian; and (2) s/he collects the series. Both conditions aren't impossible to meet; I actually know of a few...

Other last-minute manga: Naruto 42 and Eyeshield 21 volume 22 (same terms and conditions apply; just swap titles), or for the shoujo fan, any of these quick-releasing manga: Kitchen Princess 7, School X Fight 2, and the penultimate Sugar - Sugar Rune. (Hint to someone: I want those KitchPri and School X Fight installments and HanaLaLa 33 that streets the day before as stocking stuffers!)

New manga It's hard to track down information on Kaiser Z by Uno Hiroshi-sensei (creator of Captain Kid), but the December Komikologi does have a blurb for Kaizer Z. Spelling differences regardless, it is 天空の覇者Z (The Sky's Z Champion - my shot at a translation). Anyway, the synopsis of World War II space ace Tenma Ryuzaki's story is after the manga list.
