Two Level manga, originally been penciled in for May make a June appearance—Descendants of Darkness volume 6 and Vagabond 27.

A little over a week late, however, doesn't detract any from the chou enthusiastic GET! reception from the EMO post-ers—for the above two and the third of the unsurprisingly strong triumverate, volume 7 of Inoue Kazurou-sensei's Love & Collage AKA Ai Kora. And no wonder. In this latest tankou, we find faithful parts lover Maeda Hachibe finally falling in love; the object of the atsui rabu rabu — the one with the blue cat's eyes.
