Nabari no Ou © Kamatani Yuhki/Square Enix
Published in Indonesia as The Ruler of Nabari by Elex Media Komputindo
Raimei follows a bloody trail of clues to the Fuma village in her retribution-bent pursuit of older sib Raikou, but can she succeed in restoring the clan's honor when she finally clashes swords with her
traitorous elder brother? Find out in The Ruler of Nabari volume 4 — which far and away leads the pack of Elex manga GET! this release.
Meanwhile, Hana and her group accept Summer Team A's offer of succor, staying in the group's village to escape a second predator attack in volume 14 of Tamura Yumi's 7SEEDS, winner of the 2007 Shogakukan Award for shoujo manga. They successfully integrate into the community, but can this haven really be what it seems?
Elsewhere, it's secret rooms, codes, and a vanishing enemy. But no ruse, no matter how perfect, nor blood-soaked hills and seas filled with evil can obscure the truth as Conan sees it; they only whet the detective's appetite to solve the mystery and put away the culprit in volume 30 of the Detektif Conan Special.
More summaries of latest installments (Godhand Teru 17, LUM The Invader Girl 16, Masked Rider Spirits 11, New Legenda Naga 4, Ruler of the Land 45, and the penultimate Sweet Lollipop Return!) after the manga list/behind the cut.
Following the example set by Kekkaishi and Wild Life, Natsume Yoshinori's Kurozakuro becomes the third Shonen Star serial in as many weeks to compile in tankou: Sakurai Mikito is a gentle senior high student who would rather be oppressee than oppressor, repelled as he is by the thought of inflicting harm on others. This changes when he meets the mysterious Zakuro who grants him a monstrous power that kindles the desire to devour... humans.
Once again V.B. Rose front-covered, HanaLaLa (Issue 44) features twice the Alice Academy goodness with the simultaneous escape of Story 70 and 71. The Indonesian Hana to Yume and LaLa adds an extra dollop of shoujo icing in the form of a one-shot—
Double Crown—from Dragon's Fiancé manga-ka Kusakawa Nari.
