Fulfilling my fill in the blanks promise. (I've scattered the covers among the links; happy hunting.)
Dengeki Daisy © Motomi Kyousuke/Shogakukan (Serialized in Betsucomi)
Published in Indonesia as Electric Daisy by PT Gramedia/m&c!
An email virus sent from “DAISY” spreads throughout the school, prompting Kurosaki to try to smoke out the fake hacker. Before Kurosaki can uncover the pretender's identity, he is knocked out when he saves Teru from a shadowy threat too close to lethal for comfort.
The investigation stalled and Kurosaki injured, Teru keeps vigil at the hospital where he is admitted. Realizing just how much Kurosaki means to her, especially now that he has sacrificed himself ... yada yada yada.
Meanwhile, I do hope there's no such kiss (again) between Hyuga Rasetsu and Iwatsuki Kuryuu, the kotodama-tsukai in Shiomi Chika's Rasetsu's Flower (Rasetsu no Hana). Volume 6 supposedly delves into Kuryuu's past and I could care less. I ship YakouRasetsu all the way, baybeh! (Hoshino Yakou is the water exorcist ex-the prequel Yurara's Moon.)
In m&c!'s latest tankou of Dawn Aria (Akaishi Michiyo's Cherry-serialized josei title), Aria conceals her worries about her left hand from Natsuo and Shirayuki-sensei, but Natsuo matches Aria's secretiveness and eavesdrops on her piano playing. Shirayuki-sensei later uncovers what Aria is hiding and marches her off to a doctor. While there, Sensei receives news of his wife's death.
m&c! released an Akaishi Michiyo-sensei omnibus, The Best Selection of Akaishi Michiyo, last 2 June.
NEW M&C! TITLES: Confirmation as promised
Yes, Shiiba Nana's Gorgeous Twins is Gokujou Twins, the title alluding to the dupe pair who caused Sara's trauma and who have now returned, more gor-jus! than ever, to make her life even more miserable (or so she thinks). Shiiba Nana's other m&c!-released shoujo manga standalones include Prince Romantica and The Underground Kids.
Chiba Kozue's Love Letter is Hidarite no Love Letter, in which Nishino and Minami Taiga exchange left hand romantic scribbles, the “love letters” of the title. Chiba Kozue is the manga-ka of 24 Colors or 24 Colors - Hatsukoi no Palette and Let's Meet at School Tonight (Yoru no Gakkou e Oide Yo!).
It turns out Wao Akira's Sayaka's Special Attack, Big Victory! is Tokkou Sayaka Bucchigiri, which finds Sayaka on a fund-raising drive to prevent her school from closing, meeting a singer slash savior who offers to help her raise money if she becomes his girlfriend. (Even though Sayaka already has Aoi.)
(I don't think that there was any doubt Welcome to Lovers Café Marina by Kitamura Yuuka could have been anything other than Lovers Café Marina ni Youkoso, set in a café that holds all sorts events for couples.)
Finally, there are the first two volumes of Foot 2 Rue: Street Soccer bande dessinée/BDs (Franco-Belgian comics that m&c! calls AMERO comics and Level Comics, ROMICs), which intensify the current soccer mania.
