Kuroshitsuji © Toboso Yana/Square Enix (Serialized in GFantasy)
Published in Indonesia as Black Butler by Elex Media
Following Kuroshitsuji in the popularity stakes is Eyeshield 21 volume 35, in which Sena declares
ownership of the planet
This World Is Mine. And no wonder, having bagged the Christmas Bowl trophy, Sena gets word of the Youth World Cup — and guess who's going? Panther will also be there, representing America. So Sena now has to choose the members of Team Japan from among the rivals he has trounced to take on the best in the world.

Look forward to the premiere of Nakamura Seiko's Best Friend Survival! (originally Yuujou Survival!, first serialized in Hana to Yume, about an unlikely friendship between commoner Hirasawa Asako (who adores ad flyers) and rich girl Ichijo Sakurako); Short Program Girl's Type (right), a compile of Adachi Mitsuru shorts (one of which stars vagabond Kakefu Ginji who meets four sisters operating a hot springs resort and ends up being in their employ); and volume 1 of Soyama Kazutoshi's Wazabo featuring Wazawaza Mimimi who guards the treasure of the mountains with the help of the wand Wazabo.
Now for the rest of the snap summaries:
- Kazuki, Tokiko, and Gouta leave for Newton Apple Academy for Girls and come face to face with a masked man claiming to know the secret of Kazuki's black kurogane in Busou Renkin 9;
- An evil Esper steals 10 years-worth of Minamoto's memory, reverting him to the age of The Children in Cute Children 15;
- Once again Khulab saves Themedes by sacrificing himself, making Themedes admit (Kyaaa~!) to loving Khulab in Legend of Nereid 3;
- Eris, staying over at Kio's house, begins to open up and becomes friends with Manami in Let's Play! 2;
- In the third round of the autumn amateur tourney, Seikai High faces Koutoku and its ace with the cannonball spike and the setter who always goes after the open toss in Libero Revolution!! 8;
- Kai, Doctors Koto, Togo, and Kinoshita are off on their summer holidays in Nurse Diary 9; and
- Someone wants to wrest brother Takeshi away from Sakura in With My Brothers 2
Peace reigns in MÄR Heaven, thanks to Ginta and Team MÄR. Now it's time for Ginta to bid goodbye to his comrades. Be there for his leave-taking in the finale of Anzai Nobuyuki's shounen fantasy MÄR, leaking *sniff* tears in Shonen Star 63/2010.
