僕達は知ってしまった 5

Bokutachi wa Shitte Shimatta © Miyasaka Kaho/Shogakukan (Serialized in Cheese!)
Published in Indonesia as Love Affair by Elex Media/Level Comics

May contain [SPOILERS]

Jio Freed's battle against the increasingly powerful S Rank O-Part Mekisis comes to a head as the Resistance putschists are pushed back by the Zenom organization. Does the coup d'etat stand a chance of succeeding? And can Jio beat Mekisis?

You will have to GET! Kishimoto Seishi's Jio volume 5—containing chapters 18 Marching Along the Winding Road through 22 A Pact With the Devil— for answers.

Restore Garage 251 volume 5 by Tsugihara Ryuji

Elsewhere, in other battles, excitement builds as the Japan Mille Miglia roars off — and not just because of the inherent race thrill. Mr. X's romance with pretty newscaster Minami (who has mistaken Mr. X for idol Ryo) is largely to blame. Relations become, as they say in fesbuk circles, “complicated” when Tamae suspects Mr. X of being her husband. Who is the mystery man? And who will emerge the victor in the ongoing endurance race?

Love Affair 5 by Miyasaka Kaho

The sitch is considerably more tranquil in Love Affair, the third volume 5 of this Level release. Natsume becomes friends again with Kotori, and the rabu rabu quotient of Kotori's relationship with Yukito increases after they get up front with their feelings. But medetashi, medetashi happiness doesn't abide long (probably because it doesn't make for good story-telling) as Yukito's junior high friend Matsushima reappears, latching on to Yukito and reviving Kotori's insecurities.

As for the last two manga streeting this Wednesday —

Eagle 10 by Kawaguchi Kaiji

Kenneth Yamaoka's campaign trail takes him down south, where sentiments against non-Caucasians still simmer below the surface. Yamaoka is greeted with protests and demonstrations, even destruction of property. As if racial discrimination weren't enough, the Yamaoka family becomes the target of death threats. The escalating violence places Yamaoka at a crossroads: withdraw from the presidential race or face assassination.

Angel Heart 3 by Hojo Tsukasa

Guided by Kaori's memories, Glass Heart finally meets up with Tokyo sweeper Saeba Ryo, and the City Hunter goes into action against the Qing Long hit squad after Glass Heart. Can Ryo effectively eliminate the threat posed by Zheng Dao Hui's special force without spilling blood on the streets of Shinjuku?
