Minima, the shoujo manga series by Sakurai Machiko-sensei—about a girl and the animated doll who's her bestfriend—ends next Wednesday. (I'm referring to the Indonesian version published by m&c!, of course.)

Meanwhile, one soonjung manhwa, H2O by Hwang SookJi, and another shoujo manga, Lovely Days or Sakura Zensen by Obayashi Miyuki-sensei, are on their second to the last installments.

New series
There are two new manga this release, both looking like they're standalones. If I'm not mistaken, Everlasting Portrait is Morio Rina-sensei's Eien no Portrait, originally published under Kodansha's now defunct imprint Fureindo (Friends). Izumo (from the anime?) is most likely Yamamoto Kazue-sensei's IZUMO 猛き剣の閃記, published by Kadokawa Shoten under the Kadokawa Comics A (Kadokawa Comics Ace) imprint.
