There's a lot of excitement generated by m&c! premiering The Day of Revolution alias Kakumei no Hi, the main story to Tsuda Mikiyo-sensei's BL smash manga, Princess Princess released last week. The buzz actually drowned out the penultimate Full House Kiss 5 actually getting a street date.

And as surmised, Tony Wong Yuk Long's Ksatria Langit 48 and Mauricio de Sousa's Monika 118 do catch up with the next release schedule which is 21 January, crowding the already congested list which dumps everything January 2009-planned into one day. » Edit | Not quite everything; there are still some releases on 28 January.

New manga Meanwhile, Haunted Bridge is NOT related to Narushima Yuri-sensei's Haunted White Van; Elex's 21 January STO sez it's a standalone from Kawamura Eri-sensei (cover behind the cut).

Contrarily, despite sed list recording that a certain Yang A is the manga-ka of Paradise Cats, until I see the goods, I will choose to believe that it is NekoTen (Gakuen Sousei Nekoten! - 学園創世 猫天!), the five-volume seinen series by Iwahara Yuji-sensei, originally serialized in Akita Shoten's Champion Red mangazine and published in English by Yen Press. » Edit | Waaaaay off base on this one: it IS Yang A's Paradise Cats, originally... umm, Paradise Cats! (I don't know; I haven't bought it (yet), but it looks like a manhwa. Cover's up there.

There are also two Finales in this list. Aside from the third My Platinum Lady, there's Saruyama! (turns out volume 8's the last one; seems like only yesterday I reviewed volume 1 for Japanator).
