Vampire Knight © Hino Matsuri/Hakusensha [Serialized in LaLa]
Published in Indonesia by Elex Media Komputindo
New Creepy Maria tempts Yuki with the secret to forestalling My Hero Zero's Level E termination; Yuki just has to choose between giving herself to the Night Class transferee or offing Vampire Prince Kaname to pay for the tip.
Yuki thumbs down the assassination alternative—did you expect anything else?—choosing to let Maria imbibe Yuki Blood Straight. Does this mean 1-0 for Maria VS the Cross Academy Guardians? Check out how the bloody game plays out in Vampire Knight 4, streeting next Wednesday.
Chizumi & Fujiomi 1
© Hikawa Kyoko/Hakusensha
Published as Angin Musim Gugur
by Elex Media
I get that the Chizumi & Fujiomi series is as classic as Dunia Mimpi; why reissue otherwise? But if like me you have no idea of who Chizumi and Fujiomi are, let alone why they rate preferential treatment (at an IDR 22,000 price tag)... *directs you to the Angin Musim Gugur (Deluxe) blurb below*
Chizumi's beloved sister exchanges the family bosom for a husband's clinch, much to Chizumi's endless melancholy. Despite the “loss” of onee-chan, li'l sis essays resilience, a target that would've been easier to hit had she not misplaced the keepsake hat her only sister gave her, on the very day they bid good-bye to each other.
Fast forward to school. Amid acting tuff, Chizumi is called by a popular yet aloof school mate, Fujiomi. Having heard all the rumors about him, Chizumi is scared witless. She didn't do anything, so what does he want with her??
If it helps, Baka-Updates Manga users tag the series
Opposites Attract, Classic Manga, Clumsy Heroine, Bishounen. A LaLa serial, Chizumi & Fujiomi was compiled in three tankou—Haru wo Matsukoro, Pastel Kibun and Gin Iro Ehon—before Hakusensha re-released it in two volumes in 2000. (Elex's Angin Musim Gugur (Deluxe) represents the relaunched Chizumi & Fujiomi 1.)
REISSUES: The Complete New Kungfu Boy by Maekawa Takeshi
If you wanna (re)start your collection, Elex reissues the entire New Kungfu Boy martial arts shounen series in two RE-STO sets: volumes 1-10 and 11-20 of 20, each value bundle retailing for IDR 160,000. In Maekawa Takeshi-sensei's Tekken Chinmi universe, New Kungfu Boy succeeds the original Kungfu Boy and precedes the ongoing, volume-9-released-just-last-Wednesday Kungfu Boy Legends, serialized in the Indonesian Shonen Magz.
And speaking of mangazines —

Volume previews continued
Contrary to fears, sub Enomoto gets Team Mizuho back on track. But just as Mizuho's cagers start sinking in baskets, Coach Himuro calls for another substitution, this time recalling Dobashi and sending Ishi back in. What kind of gamble is this? All along, the cornerstone of Mizuho's defense has been the Ishi and Dobashi combi.
What will be rival Narita's answer to the coach's stratagem?
Yes, that's it... I will only say that it is the fault of the devil's spawn.
After five years, Takuma returns to the neighborhood where he grew up, smarter in ways his past self could never have imagined. Not everyone, however, is pleased, forcing Takuma to access Hell Communication and summon Enma Ai.
And so the nightmare begins...
[With additions from the French La fille des enfers, tome 8 synopsis (Pika Edition)]
Volume 8 contains chapters:
A warm heart
My sister, my pride
The lake's tranquil shores
*Not Nakayoshi Gress! titles; translated from the French La fille des enfers 8 blurb
Whomsoever wrests Zakuro's horn, possessed of power beyond envisioning, stands to create a new era. Thus, the conflict escalates, with the fate of the human world in the balance. As the clash comes to a head, who will emerge with the power to rewrite the rules?
Volume 6 contains chapters:
White and black
The fang which evolved (the ogre)
*Not Shonen Star titles; translated from the Japanese 「クロザクロ ６」 blurb
To rescue Mei, Rei Yan confronts Myeol Cheon, only to be faced with the choice of fighting the god of war. Elsewhere, Xiao remains trapped with Mastema.
Increasingly smitten Akiho fights to protect her growing closeness to Minatsu-senpai, restraining herself to please, rather than repulse, the love of her life.
Yukimura Makoto-sensei's epic Vinland Saga returning to the cover aside, The Thing about Shonen Magz Issue 77 is the wrap of Sawada Hirofumi's samurai action drama Sanzoku Ou: King of Bandits. One star from among the legendary five augured to disarm destiny refuses to dim; whose is it?
(BTW, Sanzoku Ou: King of Bandits 4 is reportedly slated for a 6 October release; Vinland Saga's tankou premiere remains shrouded in mystery, or sunk in licensing limbo.)
