Domeki shares Watanuki's powers and gains the Time Witch's part-timer's ability to see youkai and ayakashi. Watanuki Vision™ further allows Domeki to witness Watanuki's encounter with a girl under a sakura tree — despite his absence from the scene. Is the girl introduced in xxxHOLiC 9 a preternatural creature or a flesh and blood human?
Del Rey hints as to her real identity in its xxxHOLiC 9 blurb: Like Watanuki, she can detect spirits, and together they try to avert an exorcism.

The third bunko of Ninomiya Tomoko's Genius Family Company has Katsuyuki overnighting at Nagasawa Kyoko's gallery and ending up clobbered by Nagasawa's father who mistakes him for some pervert salaryman. Forced to look for other work to fund his studies abroad, Katsuyuki part-times at a bookstore, little knowing that the store is owned by Nagasawa's dad. Eventually, though, Katsuyuki learns of the true financial state of the business: it's struggling in Danger Red territory!
The Gokusen penult surprises us with Shinohara-sensei's kidnapping as he prepares to resign his commission as the Kuroda attorney. The abductor's identity unknown, the entire Ooedo Clan panics. Shin suggests that Yankumi pose as an Obfuscating Stupidity Normal to investigate the lawyer's abduction; she's all over the idea and with Shin and the Kuroda canine Fuji, tries to pick up Shinohara-sensei's trail.
As luck would have it, Shin runs afoul of the perp when the Hot for Teach bishounen tries to rescue
the Future Mother of His Children Yankumi from a trap.
(As mentioned last month, I'm amped for the Shinkumi OTP payoff that the Gokusen 2K8 special chapter reportedly brings and as such, having trouble waiting for after Morimoto Kozueko's XX-chromosomed GTO runs its course before I start reading it. *prays for volume 15's speedy release*)
Fight!! Ippo 77 and Priest 7 previews are after the fake cut.
With the third Revolution No.3, it's a wrap for Kaneshiro Kazuki & Akishige Manabu's Zombies trilogy (sequels Fly, Daddy, Fly and Speed finished earlier). Level, however, didn't supply a synopsis, so I'm just going to list the Beatles' songs-inspired chapters: (22) Don't pass me by; (23) Come together; (24) Shout; (25) She loves you; (26) Do you want to know a secret; (27) Flying; (28) If I needed someone; (29) I call your name; (30) With a little help from my friends; and (31) Let it be.
