Defense Devil © Youn In Wan & Yang Kyung Il/Shogakukan (Serialized in Shonen Sunday)
Published in Singapore by Chuang Yi
In Event Horizon, the world where souls must pass before they enter hell, lies Kucabara, third son of the demon king. Stripped of his demon powers and banished from the demon world for behaviour unbecoming of their kind, he now takes on the role of a ‘Defense Devil’ — a lawyer of hell who protects the rights of human clients unjustly condemned.
Chuang Yi finally follows up its simplified Chinese Defense Devil premiere with the English equivalent, allowing English-reading fans to follow the demon defense counsel in his quest to collect sinners' dark matter and regain his powers.
Defense Devil isn't the only debut. A manga spin-off of the original Beyblade anime—Metal Fight Beyblade—also premieres, along with Pokémon Rise of Darkrai, the cinemangafication of Pocket Monsters Diamond & Pearl the Movie: Dialga VS Palkia VS Darkrai.

When Kuga abandons his partners to secure his own freedom, Rokudo's desperation causes his manifestation to appear again and save him from certain death. But even as Rokudo continues to be baffled by his ability, the power of his other self has started to attract the attention of rest of the student body...
