The buzz is that m&c! has more manga for us this January (the releases didn't stop with the 21 January deliveries). Among the tankou streeting on 28 January—the third volume of the loooooong *pauses for breath* awaited Rasetsu's Flower (Rasetsu no Hana) by Shiomi Chika-sensei and the second volume of Sunset on Third Street by Saigan Ryohei-sensei.

New manga There are six this list, three of them standalones: The Flower StoryIf Only a DreamVisitor in The Night of Star. What I know about this trio: they're by Nagaoka Yoshiko-sensei and part of the Akita Shoten Mystery Bonita-serialized Karei naru Ai no Rekishi Emaki historical shoujo series that includes (1) Kazari no Monogatari, (2) Hanafumu Oni, (3) Yume to Shiriseba, (4) Usu Beniiro no Natsu no Kage, (5) Sora yori Hana no Chirikuru wa, (6) Hanashizume no Matsuri, and (7) Ruri no Soushi.

Of the three debuting manga, I was able to identify Twin Princess of Wonder Planet (Fushigiboshi no Futagohime) easily because Singapore's Chuang Yi had already published it. I have no clue about Showa Man but the title intrigued me—that is, until I saw the cover. *sweatdrop* Now, I'm eyeing Center of The Sky (Sora no Mannaka) by Kamura Yoko-sensei.
