ゴーストハント 10

Added 6 Days synopsis ex Komikologi JUL-09

Been babbling so much about Ghost Hunt lately in connection with the Strange Tales of Tokyo manga (another Ono Fuyumi-sensei series) et — voila! Elex releases Ghost Hunt 10!

Talk about a talk about it enuf and it will come! kinda thing...

This is the tankou—Runesque-san, I hope you're reading this—we've been waiting for: when All Is Revealed about Naru's dark and angsty past. (Like that's still a secret...)

SHAMELESS PLUG: Anyhoo, for those who want a sneak peek into Ghost Hunt volume 10 (synopsis c/o Komikologi), click the link.

Meanwhile, there's also the latest installment to Kishimoto Masashi-sensei's Naruto (volume 44) and Katou Motohiro-sensei's Rocket Man (volume 7) this schedule. In the latter volume originally scheduled for May and designated as a must-have —

R's private project, the rocket Yo has been helping to build, now threatens several "interested" parties who proceed to dispatch an assassin after Aines, the T.E. head who is R's project sponsor. With Aienes in critical condition, uncertainty rocks T.E. and the shadowy underworld. But before the world loses its faith in T.E., Aienes launches a preemptive bid: she sends Yo to Berlin to meet someone capable of helping him overcome the obstacles to the rocket project's continuity.

[Translated from Komikologi May 2009]

Another blurb, for the local graphic novel 6 Days by the creator of the Triple Knock series, is behind the cut.

Spotlight on...

6 Days
by Nunik Triwahyuni
Designation: Must Have Manga Makita

Cangkir cantik dan unik itu menyimpan sebuah misteri. Ipul dan Kasih yang tanpa sengaja menemukannya mengalami kejadian-kejadian aneh setelah mengusap cangkir itu. Sebenarnya kejadian apa yang akan mereka alami?

For unmissable, this is a local GN reasons, left the blurb in Indonesian. If you don't understand the language but remain curious about it, 6 Days tells the story of two people who find a beautiful but mysterious tea cup. After rubbing it (like that famous lamp), bizarre things start to happen.

Meanwhile, the reason for the Must have admonition —

Komik bergenre misteri ini berisi 2 cerita lepas yang berkaitan. Dengan latar belakang keluarga yang berbeda pada tiap cerita, Nunik berhasil mencekam pembaca dari dua sudut pandang, si kaya dan si miskin. Goresan halus dan expresi yang tepat semakin memperkuat keseluruhan cerita. Komik lokal ini bisa disebut sebagai salah satu komik lokal yang patut dibanggakan.

Elex considers this graphic novel, through its primary employment of a rich/poor viewpoint dichotomy in the narrative and subtle art and apposite expressions, a comic you can be proud of.

WHOA!!! Finally Ghost Hunt 10, Naruto 44, and Rocketman 7. I'm so broke this month but then again it's so worthy! I can't wait for the released soon! Got to hurry order it before I ran out of it! Whoa! I'm so excited!

Thanks for sharing in the excitement!

Yes, I read it XDDD. I'd heard from a friend ages ago that GH 10 the tankoubon had come out in Japan but I decided to wait for the local version (no spoiling myself). I also JUST found out that the translator in charge of GH is one of my own friends ^^". I could've asked her for the release info but, meh, the book's here now.

Now, to pay Gramedia a visit XD
