✿ Emotional investment in Sawada Hirofumi's Talkin' 'bout a revolution manga continues to climb. For those angsticipating what's next, in Sanzoku Ou: King of Bandits 7, twenty days surrounded by a numerically superior enemy take its toll, and not just on soldier morale. As food stocks drop—to near-starvation levels—Masashige gives the order:
Tell everyone to eat their fill.
What is Masashige thinking?
If you want further Nagato problems STAT!, go through back issues of the Indonesian Shonen Magz; the series wrapped in Issue 77. (If you want a similar historical series, try out m&c!'s Shanaou Yoshitsune Genpei War from the same manga-ka.)
I thought this was the second time Elex was issuing Here is Greenwood; turns out I was wrong. (That
Deluxe crown on the cover lured me into thinking it shared the same status as Topeng Kaca Deluxe and Angin Musim Gugur (and the upcoming Golden Book reissue). This release actually represents the Elex premiere.

Here is Greenwood
by Elex Media
Doom and gloom trail 15-year old school boy Hasukawa Kazuya. Not only does his oniichan up and marry Kazuya's first love, Kazuya himself has to live with the blissful couple. Kazuya refuses to subject himself to moar blues, so he transfers to the all-male Ryokuto Academy and moves into the dorm nicknamed Greenwood.
Imagine Kazuya's consternation when he finds he's rooming with... a girl?!
Baka Updates' users tag Koko wa Greenwood
Crossdressing, Dorms, Rated OT, Shoujo with Male Lead. They also file the series under tsundere. (bangin-san cites these oranyan examples: Tsukimori Ren (La Corda d'Oro) and Wolfram (Kyou Kara Maou).) Chiaki (Nodame Cantabile) is another example.
I'm assuming the Greenwood oranyan is Dropped the Bridget on Him Kazuya? Whoever it is, Elex promises that the thicker bunko edition will satisfy your trap comedy cravings (if not your fujo BL parti pris).

Ack! Prince Rauto has more than one fiancée?! Aside from Miku, a Monster girl Ruru claims to be engaged to the prince.
What's got Miku baffled is: if Ruru is also a prospective bride, how come she's trying to get Rauto into trouble?
A confused Chiba joins a freestyle battle open tournament, despite a timing conflict with BECK's stage performance.
Is Chiba trying to distance himself from the band?
The Bitoh brothers beat up Hiromi and Bando, the Suzuran attack apparently a homage to their eldest brother, now long gone. They turn their sights next to “Suzuran's strongest,” Rindaman. But Rindaman tells the brothers they've got the wrong address and points them in Harumichi's direction.
Can a newly-recovered Harumichi survive the looming duel against the sibs?
Hikaru strives to help Ruika realize her dream of appearing before her grieving mother as Ruika and not as her deceased brother Masato. But can Ruika's mother accept Ruika as herself and let go her grief over her other child?
As mentioned at the outset, the latest Hayate The Combat Butler picks up the Athena arc where volume 23 left off.
After locking down his answer, Hayate faces Athena, accompanied by 10 years worth of emotional baggage. A farewell promise held in stasis for a decade thus approaches its fulfillment climax.
Volume 24 compiles chapters:
Shining in the Night
From Now On
And the Final Confrontation
The First Word
Question at Me
Someone Loves You
For Eternity, For You
Flirt and Flutter
*NOT Elex chapter titles
Is Han Bikwang truly dead and has Ma Geum Rong been possessed by the spirit of the flower fairy sword again?
