Vampire Knight © Hino Matsuri/Hakusensha [Serialized in LaLa]
Published in Indonesia by Elex Media
Yeah, yeah, you know the manga threesome above equals top DO WANT!, but did you also catch how manhwa-ga Hwang MiRee tried to make off with this sked? She snuck in not one, not two, but three! soonjung manhwa into Elex's 10.20 list, one of them the debuting Want You. So if we add Idol Shopping 4, streeting over on m&c!'s side, it will really be—as noted by tweet friend freekenari-san—a
Serangan HMR! for the 20th.
(Sasuga) Kaname-sama pierces Hio Shizuka's heart with his bare hand, but the murder is laid squarely at My Hero Zero's feet. A vampire council envoy is sent to execute our vampire hunter. Can Zero escape punishment for a crime he didn't commit?
If you follow HanaLaLa, you might've already read the volume 5 chapters:
And speaking of HanaLaLa, you'll have to settle for this Vampire Knight tankou (and prolly also Hello Master 2, blurbed along with Fullmetal Alchemist 24 below the Fake Cut) for your LaLa or LaLa DX fix because there's no word yet on when HanaLaLa 53 will street.
Elex premieres three series: Our Dear Tamura-kun, Kurafuji Sachi's manga adapt of Takemiya Yuyuko's Watashitachi no Tamura-kun light novels, RINNE, Takahashi Rumiko's latest SS serial that skips over a Shonen Star-First installment and Want You — apparently, yet another reverse harem from Hwang MiRee.
Because Want You already insinuated itself into the intro (not to mention how Elex listed volumes 1-4 in the September Komikologi), I'm indulging the “fashionably late” debut by giving it the Above the Cut spot. (In any case, I already spotlighted RINNE here.)
Disaster befalls orphaned tomboy Kang Herem's new home, but this is exactly the blessing in disguise she's been waiting for: Herem wants to go see her crush, who also happens to be her cousin.
Will Herem be reunited with her first love when moves into her uncle's house in Seoul?
Little Marchen (Märchen-chan), a shoujo fantasy comedy from Ogawa and Team Saito's Sakyo debuts in Nakayoshi Gress! 85. Shonen Star 74, meanwhile, premieres Inoue Kazurou's Magical Iroha but reserves the cover for Adachi Mitsuru's Katsu!. (Covers and babble after the ongoing series previews waaay below.)

I fell in love with you in the summer, a girl who dreams of returning to her home planet and leaving behind this sad world. I meet you again in springtime, a violent beauty who pelts me with a honmei choco.
Seasons careen past, just like a comet, waiting for the time it streaks through the night sky once more.

Tsundere. (Guess which is which.)
Since she was a kid, Mamiya Sakura has had the power to see ghosts. It's an annoying ability at best, but one day, Sakura meets a mysterious boy, Rokudo Rinne, who claims to be a Shinigami.
And so begins Sakura's adventure with Rinne who exorcises ghosts, liberating them from the remorse that binds them to this world, and guiding their spirits to the Circle of Reincarnation that awaits.

Even though it's no longer Christmas, Kurumi doesn't let go of Kaito's reins, rendering our Santa × Reindeer couple inseparable for the entire year. The 24/7 yoke draws the attention of a “Special” Santa Claus paired with a black reindeer.
Black Santa is apparently an Internal Affairs investigator who probes into Santa/Reindeer misconduct and recommends pairs to be fired for unseemly behavior.
And it only took Elex not quite three years to bring us the volume that was this blog's
Zeparos frees Themedes from prison even as Prince Paramos plans to deliver Themedes's punishment himself. Elsewhere, despite knowing Prince Thaion's likely reaction to his betrayal, Ramodeos stays with Princess Eurike.
Just as Non-chan nearly confesses to Nene, Hikaru denies ever having been a real couple with Non-chan. Contrary to Hikaru's jokey usual, Hikaru this time seems serious, not to mention, sad, as if about to say good-bye.
Non-chan wants to go after Hikaru — who ups and disappears, leaving only a letter for Nene to find:
“I will abduct you tonight. Wait for me. To my dearest Hikaru...”
Kubilai, Mongkhe, the Empress and Mi Ju depart for the castle fortress. Mi Ju's bids for freedom continue to #Fail, especially after meeting Lady Thei, Kubilai's fianceé. Meanwhile, the Emperor tracks Mi Ju down to the fort, only to be shocked by news of Mi Ju's... pregnancy?!
Mayuko protégée Kitajima Maya tries her hardest during rehearsals to give life to the role of Beth in “Young Girl,” the first drama performance of the Mayuko Acting School. Unfortunately, three days before curtains rise, Maya falls sick.
Maya disregards her illness and insists on going on with the show. But what kind of performance can she give with a 40°C fever?
The latest Indonesian Nakayoshi debuts Little Marchen or Märchen-chan by Sakyo, alongside PEACH-PIT's Little Shugo Chara!, now that the main Shugo Chara! has concluded (wrapped in NakaGress! 84 with Boy Friend by Yamada Daisy).
Little Marchen is the story of Maria Date, a half-Scottish girl who, rumors have it, can see fairies. Meanwhile, Shugo Chara-chan! (at least, that's what I assume Little Shugo Chara! used to be) is a 4-koma manga based on Shugo Chara!. This first installment credits one Naftalen Mizushima as author, but Baka-Updates Manga lists these other Nakayoshi manga-ka as collaborators on this gag manga: Abe Yuriko, Ando Natsumi, Eto Miyuki, Kikuta Michiyo, Sakyo and Toyama Ema. Ando Natsumi, Kikuta Michiyo and Toyama Ema manga also appear in this issue, along with the current Nakayoshi pals:
- Arisa by Ando Natsumi
- Counting Sheep by Moro Orie
- CHOCOLATE by Fukushima Haruka
- Million Girl by Momoyuki Kotori
- Navi Runa by Kikuta Michiyo & Ikeda Miyoko
- Sweet Tamatan by Koge-Donbo
- XX Me! by Toyama Ema
Shoken gym opens and Satoyama and Mizutani join up. Riko attempts everything to ensure that Satoyama seriously pursues the pro boxing dreams of her idol, Satoyama papa Akamatsu Ryusuke. So much so that it piques Mizutani in the latest chapter of Adachi Mitsuru's sports manga Katsu!
Premiering this issue is Inoue Kazurou's Magical Iroha (Mahou no Iroha!) comedy, about middle schooler Naoki who about suffers a heart attack when he receives a surprising visitor in Iroha, the girl claiming to be his daughter from the future.
