Otomen © Kanno Aya/Hakusensha
Or rather is dragged in kicking and screaming to center stage... Shoujo manga fans bulldoze the Lovetic manga-ka into holding a Meet-and-Greet, and Juta's so-called composure strains at the seams at the thought of his first love being one of the fans queueing for his autograph!
Meanwhile, Chinmi, Gunte, and Daruto split up to search for Princess Mito, once again abducted by the Zeigan fortress warriors in Kungfu Boy Legends (Tekken Chinmi Legends) volume 6 by Maekawa Takeshi. In the midst of the quest to find the princess, Chinmi loses track of Gunte, while Daruto encounters another bone-crushing kungfu master.
More on our kungfu boy in Shonen Magz Issue 63 (cover from Vinland Saga by Yukimura Makoto): Chinmi levels up and learns how to fight enemies with similar martial arts abilities in the latest chapter of the serialized Kungfu Boy Legends.
More summaries (predominantly battle-themed)—for Demon King 27, the final Little Detective Trickstar Hoshi (volume 7), Sersan Keroro Pink, Tale of the Sea King volume 35, Touch 20, and Yakitate!! Japan 12—after the manga list.
