Published in Singapore by Chuang Yi
CY also releases Amemiya Yuki's 07-Ghost this week. Serialized in Zero-Sum, the fantasy josei manga pits protagonist Teito Klein—one-time slave, now military academy recruit wielding a much-prized supernatural power—against the Barsburg Empire's Chief of Staff Ayanami. The day after Teito and best (and only) bud Mikage graduate, Teito finds himself imprisoned, then on the run from Ayanami and his subordinates. Little does Teito know his jailbreak will lead him to a direct confrontation with the God of Death and the so-called 07 Ghosts. [With additions from this Wiki article]

07 Ghost 「 ０７‐ＧＨＯＳＴ 」 by Amemiya Yuki, Ichihara Yukino
MSRP: SGD 8.90
Teito Klein is a former slave of a fallen kingdom who was recruited into the Barsburg Empire's military academy due to his ability to use Zaiphon, a prized and rare ability. His background and his amnesia have made him an outcast despite his talent, save for his one and only friend and confidant, Mikage. With Teito's recurring dreams becoming more vivid by the day, his suppressed memories — and the fate taht [sic] awaits his claim — are slowly starting to unravel the life he has known, but even as he struggles to recover what he had lost, getting closer to the truth may mean losing something even more precious to him...
