So I heard that Ksatria Langit 53 is the final volume of this long-running manhua by the Godfather of Hong Kong comics Tony Wong Yuk Long. Get it from your fave book seller/newsstand tomorrow.

Other GET!: If you missed a latter-half-of-the-series volume of Death Note, tomorrow also marks your chance to complete your collection, now that m&c! has reprinted volumes 7 through 12. The bad news is that now each tankou costs IDR 15,000, which carries the moral: Get 'em when they first come out. (*Hiks hiks* I still have to get volume 9 to 12...)

New manga The four new standalones for this Wednesday, however, are still at the IDR 13,800 normal: White Paper Ark, Emotion Springs, Edo's Diary, and Let's Meet at the Clinic. Kawamura Eri-sensei illustrated Emotion Springs and Edo's Diary; both are probably part and parcel of the Akita Shoten historical shoujo series m&c! has been flogging so aggressively since last year. Meanwhile, Let's Meet at the Clinic by Iwaoka Meme-sensei is Hokenshitsu de Aimashou!, originally serialized in Ciao. I don't have anything (as yet) on White Paper Ark by Fujino Moyamu-sensei.
