Ouran High Host Club 16, Vampire Knight: Ice Blue Sin novel, Bloody Monday: Season 1 volume 7 (Chuang Yi 6 July 2010 English manga)

Edited (2) because Chuang Yi sez TSUBASA 28 of 28 also released on this date.
Edited because it's Bloody Monday: Season 1 volume 7, NOT 6

Also, the simplified Chinese finale of Fujiwara Kiyo's Arakure shoujo manga (volume 10) and latest Meitantei Conan 68 (scroll down for the full list)

Published in Singapore as Vampire Knight: Ice Blue Sin by Chuang Yi

Contains [SPOILERS!]

Tamaki-sama and Haruhi share a Kiss — and Tamaki decides to leave the Host Club forever? What's happening in Ouran (aside from the asplosion of fangirls' squees)? Can't wait to get paws on Chuang Yi's Ouran High Host Club 16 for answers. (And That. Kiss. Can't emphasize it enuf.)

The second shock of the 7.06 release sked, however, remains the Vampire Knight light novelVampire Knight: Ice Blue Sin—penned by Fujisaki Ayuna and illustrated with teh usual Hino Matsuri VK pretties. The first side story features Aido (Idol)-sama and one adventurous Kaname-sama! Day Class fangirl who sneaks into the Night Class' Moon Dormitory one fateful night; the second (more important) story is the My Hero Zero-centric short, Season of Transience, set when our vampire hunter was still a trainee.

Vampire Knight: Ice Blue Sin arouses greed kindles hopes that the other VK light novel, Vampire Knight: Noir's Trap (Vampire Knight: Noir no Wana), won't be too far behind.
