Princess' Dog ends, C.M.B. and SORA continue (Elex Media 10 December 2008 manga)

EDITED | Changed SORA - Itik Buruk Rupa to SORA - The Wingless Duck, the title under which the manga is actually published.

C.M.B. Shinra Hakubutsukan no Jiken Mokuroku volume 5 (C.M.B.森羅博物館の事件目録 5)

After Touma cracks the serial mannequin killer case in Q.E.D. 30, Shinra refuses to take on the mystery of an alleged Gutenberg Bible's authenticity in C.M.B. volume 5.

I don't know whether the Prove my provenance! page a client brings to Shinra traces back to the B42 (AKA the 42-line or the Mazarin Bible) or the rarer 36-line Bible—or even if Katou Motohiro-sensei goes as far as distinguishing between versions—but let's find out when Elex releases this tanko on 10 December 2008, shall we?

Meanwhile, the final volume of Takeuchi Mick-sensei's Princess' Dog picks up from where Hyoe, whose bond with Amane has been broken by Toi, lunges to attack his former mistress. Who's gonna rescue Amane, now that her guardian has turned murderous? (Though from the pink iro cover, it's sure to be all shoujo sparkles in the end...as if that was ever in doubt...)

I don't have a summary for the fifth Ahiru no Sora (SORA - The Wingless Duck) that streets the same time as the two manga above, sowwy...

Shonen Magz 54/2008 (Indonesian version of Shounen Magazine)
In serialization:

I mentioned in the earlier Level post that Shonen Magz 54/2008, releasing on the ninth, features the final chapters of two series. Although I'm not a regular ShoMagz buyer, I'm betting the two ending series are Kagetora by Segami Akira and Toto! by Osada Yu-Ko. Even though Kobayashi Jin-sensei's School Rumble is also missing from the In serialization list in December's Komikologi, I really doubt that the 22-volumed, school life romantic comedy would be one of them.

At any rate, beyond the conclusions, another Osada Yu-Ko-sensei manga, Tribal 12, and a further supernatural shounen series— Satou Yuuki-sensei's Ghost Doctor (Youkai no Oisha-san)—will replace from Issue 55 onwards.
