More elbow grease to make the weekly manga schedules—this time Level's—easier to crank out. (Thank goodness for the Komikologi monthly bulletin.)

June 2009 "Executive Summary"
Twenty-four manga scheduled for release, the minimum number of Level's monthly manga commitment.

New manga

Level includes the two new series ex-May: A Hint of Purple by Saito Chiho and the seinen horror mystery Strange Tales of Tokyo (Toukei Ibun) by Kajiwara Niki and Ono Fuyumi (of Twelve Kingdoms, Ghost Hunt/Akuryou series fame); adds the standalone Grass Crown by Yoshimura Akemi (originally Kusakanmuri no Namae); and three more series premieres: Kubonouchi Eisaku's Chocolat, Shattered Knife (Oboreru Knife) by George Asakura, and To be Beautiful (Kirei ni Naritai!) by Yorita Miyuki that was advance released last May 26.
