.hack//G.U.+ volume 2, Aria 12 of 12, NG Life 1 by Kusanagi Mizuho, Nube 27, The Lovely Wizard 2 (m&c! 5 August 2009 manga)

ARIA 12

The story of gondolier apprentice Mizunashi Akari comes to a close this Wednesday with the release of the Aria series finale. (I think blog reader mogrika-san would be happy to GET! this one.)

Meanwhile, in the second volume of .hack//G.U.+, more information on the AIDA (Artificially Intelligent Data Anomaly) and the Epitaphs is revealed, forcing Haseo to fight the deadly Tri-Edge before he loses more friends to the Lost Ones. [Adapted from Amazon's description (TOKYOPOP edition)]

Still on continuing series, eight months of waiting produces the 27th tankou of Jigoku Sensei Nube and the continuing supernatural adventures of fifth grade homeroom teacher slash exorcist Nueno Meisuke, alias the titular Nube.

There's only one new manga (but eight new local comics) for this m&c! schedule: NG Life by Kusanagi Mizuho-sensei, first serialized in Hana to Yume. NG Life tells the story of former Pompeii citizen Silix, reincarnated as high school student Saeki Kaedai. Serisawa Mei writes a tell-all of what Kaedai remembers and life becomes... less complex? [Adapted from anything-asian's summary, excerpted by Baka-Updates Manga]

(sinu-san, I think this shoujo series by the Mugen Spiral manga-ka is a GET!)

Just got this "late-breaking" advisory from blog regular sinu-san.

Apparently, m&c! has reissued the following manga:
Caramel Diary by Mizusawa Megumi
Caramel Milk Tea by Usami Maki
My Box X My Love by Mizuto Aqua
Say Yes (originally Sukinara Sukitte Ieyo!) by Ohya Kazumi

Must check out Gramed soonest. But as far as I recall, these four manga were *wub* ^^ (Albeit my fave remains Say Yes.

Thanks again, sinu-san!
