Be careful, especially when surfing from .
Also, Otomen 8 (blurb after the manga list)
Open not the door lest you unleash damnation upon us all.
A long time ago, a boy—hoping to save his brother from Glen Baskerville—heeded not the warning and opened the forbidden door of Sabrie. A century hence, the city of Sabrie lies in ruins, but the portal itself remains, hidden in the mists of darkness. The Baskerville door Pandora has been seeking all along.
Miharu activates the hijutsu within and fulfills his Because Destiny Sed So fate to become the ruler of Nabari. Miharu, however, is not the only one undergoing metamorphosis: everyone in the ninja world is affected, making Miharu regret ever using it. Tobari-sensei tries to help Miharu by perfecting the zeku, a procedure that would unfuse the Shinra Banshou from its wielder's body.
But the technique can only succeed if the Banten and Fuma ninja cooperate.
Doofus vet Iwashiro Tessho's unshakeable belief in friend Kurachi Hisataka's powers awakens the latter's abilities, just in time for their next job: bagging a crocodile.
And Fearless Kurachi goes into super(hero) mode in Wild Life volume 6.

Higuchi Tachibana's They're in grade school, but their readers are (mostly) considerably older Alice Academy logged two chapters in the last HanaLaLa, but still refuses to give up the spotlight. Aside from grabbing the front cover, latest Story 80 cops the honor of being this Indonesian Hana to Yume and LaLa's featured installment:
Mikan is accused of causing chaos in Alice Academy, when the actual twerp, I mean, perp is Koizumi. Threatened with dire things by Koizumi, Mikan is helpless to acquit herself of the trumped up charge and is carted away by the disciplinary committee.
It's a good thing someone goes after Mikan.

NOT!TeniPuri tennis shounen manga from the manga-ka of Fantasista:
Yuzawa Ryo enrolls into Seiryo High, a private school famed nationally for the strength of its sports clubs. Despite a tennis virginity, Ryo tries out for the school's tennis club. Does he think he's a genius, or is he just plain stoopid?
Nene's only wish as she enters a new school is to live the rosy-pink school life with the “Honey Boy” she met during the entrance test. But while she's praying at a nearby shrine, she finds someone in shrine maiden garb bound up in ropes. Our heroine and the “miko” scamper from the perverted monk guarding the temple, but Nene's bad luck streak is just starting. Her good deed forces Nene to stay at the co-ed dorm Hachimitsu. And the girl she rescued? Turns out, “she” is actually a he!
Continuing manga previews
Parting is such sweet sorrow. So goes The Bard's (actually Juliet's) lament in Romeo and Juliet [Act 2, scene 2, 176-185]. And Koyuki and Maho are finding out just how much pleasure/pain they will have to endure on this day, their last together...
Not sure if the
A Kiss for My Prince 3 & 4 summary (in Komikologi) refers to volume 3 or 4, but it talks about how Chayene, powerless to defend herself against the entire palace's accusation of theft, is helped by Kiera, who may or may not be trying to entrap her. That being the case, am also borrowing Infinity Studios' description for the (on hold) A Kiss for My Prince 3 as blurb back-up:
Upon her return from the Antoweif Castle, Sei-Ann has given up all hope of being able to uncover her past and learn her true identity. On the other hand, Prince Joon is seemingly more concerned with her welfare after secretly being told information which may reveal her identity to be that of Lady Ashley, the last heir to the house of Antoweif. In the meanwhile, Sei-Ann has other more pressing matters at hand as three notorious palace “trainers” have come to pay her a visit. Just when it seems like all hope is lost, a Prince comes to her rescue... but which one?!
In the penultimate Kunaiden (containing chapters 17-26) —
Kunai gets an unwelcome visitor. No, it's not Grandpa Neko and Rin (though they do show up); it's Izuna's older sib whose sharp vampire hunter instincts just might sniff out Kunai- and his father's *cough*vampireninja*cough* secret.
Volume 8 of Otomen FInally! streets:
After reassuring scary Grandpa Miyakozuka, Asuka FInally! confesses and scotches plans of Ryo transferring out. But during Ryo's Welcome Back party, teeming with otomen, Asuka's mother pops up. Her Trap!! Berserk Button pushed, Mrs. Masamune vows to reinstate stringent gender lines and uphold the integrity of the true (female) otome.
An Indian girl pays a visit to Lin's house, looking for the 12th-generation Kashima. Her reason: to apologize for losing the puppet left in her care. Is she the ninth Puppet Master? If so, where is her puppet?
Hiyono tapes Blade Child Rio confessing to murdering Imazato-sensei. Faced with incriminating evidence, co-conspirator Kosuke makes a grab for the tape, which Hiyono tosses to Ayumu who hotfoots it out of there. Left behind, Hiyono is made a hostage for the next battle between Ayumu and Rio. Rio would like nothing more than to kill off Hiyono, and Ayumu will do everything in his power to help his senpai slash trusty information dealer. Who will win this rematch?
Ageha is thrilled to be a wedding dress model at the Bridal Fair. (V.B. Rose owner Arisaka is her mock groom.) Their relationship seems destined for
cheek-pinchingly cute, what with Arisaka-san inviting Ageha to go out with him. What will happen during this all-important First Date?
