Also, Masked Rider Spirits 12, on the back burner since July
Pandora Hearts © Mochizuki Jun/Square Enix [Serialized in GFantasy]
Published in Indonesia by Elex Media
Pandora Hearts 11, which outstrips whichever manga/manhwa streets on the 24th to reign as undisputed DO WANT! champ across all Gramedia channels (Elex—Level—m&c!), sees a world in turmoil after the red Shinigami shatters Glen Baskerville's barrier seal. Oz and comrades, rushing to find information on the other seal before Baskerville beats them to it, meet a mage descendant of the seal guardian. However, an unexpected something disrupts the confab, proving Break's contention that wherever Oz is, trouble is sure to follow.
This tankou compiles Retrace XLII-XLV:
Crown of Clown,
Dusty Sky and
Queen of Hurts.
Aoyama Gosho's Detektif Conan 30 +Plus Super Digest continues where 20 +Plus left off, declassifying moar Detektif Conan chara dossiers, as well as revealing further secrets behind the shounen tantei's case closing deductions. The third of five Conan Super Digest Story and Character Guides shares Next Most Drooled Over honor with Tsukuba Sakura's Hello Master volume 3 (below).
At the start of autumn, a reindeer approaches Kurumi. Alto, another black reindeer, is well nigh immortal, but unlike Nene, doesn't belong to the fault-finding Santa Claus Internal Affairs division. But just because Alto doesn't go around investigating behavior unbecoming of Santa × Reindeer pairs doesn't mean the other blackie doesn't cause an uproar. Upon meeting the female Santa Claus, the ronin reindeer falls head over heels in lurve.
Kaito, what do you make of another reindeer muzzling in on your master? (Tokoro de, can you even growl?)
Baka-Updates lists Yoroshiku Master as an ongoing, but Elex insists (see November's Komikologi) that Hello Master 3 represents The End. I tend to side with Elex this time: the Japanese よろしく・マスター and traditional Chinese 請多指教 - 主人! editions don't go any higher than volume 3.
In alphabetical order: another Crayon Shinchan edu-manga from Usui Yoshito, Crayon Shinchan - 20 Orang Terhebat di Dunia; the third Kindaichi Special Case duology from Amagi Seimaru & Sato Fumiya, Kindaichi Special Case - Private School Murder (volume 1 of 2); NakaGress graduate My Fiancé is a Monster (volume 1 of 2) by Hanamori Pink and Palette of 12 Secret Colors (volume 1 of 6) by Kusakawa Nari. You know the drill; this LaLa fangirl will only blurb abecedarian back marker Palette Above the Cut. (Although I will tell you now that if you're curious about the world's 20 Most Influential People, according to Shin-chan, you'll have to GET! the IDR 25,800 SRP volume. Elex's blurb doesn't even hint at who makes Shin-chan's historical personages A-list, but from the cover, one of them is inventor Thomas Alva Edison.)
☒ Fujiko F. Fujio's cinemangafication of Doraemon: A Grandmother's Recollections—Doraemon Movie: Kenangan Nenek—originally advised for 11.24 release apparently has been postponed. Will advise new sched when available.
The city of Opal plays host to the “Palettes” — mages who can transfer colors between objects. Drawn to the remote island boasting the planet's most vividly-colored birds, the wizards have set up shop in Opal to train palette candidates.
Unfortunately, first-year student Cello can't quite master the “Secret Colors” basics and stands to fail the course. Fortunately despite her ineptness, Cello remains the only palette capable of long-distance color manipulation. Unfortunately, the same power brings Cello afoul of kidnappers who force her to capture the iridescent birds. Fortunately...
... the birds aren't carriers of avian flu.
No, seriously, get Palette of 12 Secret Colors 1 to find out if Cello can expect something good on the Opal horizon. (Fortunately, she's not alone; she can count on the help of bird Yoyo, introduced in Baka-Updates Manga's Juuni Hizoku no Palette description.)
Elex previously published Kusakawa Nari's Overhead Cottage as a Serial Cantik standalone, but you prolly know this manga-ka better from The Recipe for Gertrude (which Elex has down as a December 2010 Upcoming) and Dragon's Fiancé, currently serialized in HanaLaLa. Kusakawa-sensei's ongoing LaLa/LaLa DX serial is the debt-troped Yashio to Mikumo.
Shonen Magz 79/2010 inducts Blazer Drive 「ブレイザードライブ」 by Kishimoto Seishi into the
Absolutely kewl Shonen Magz ranks. The ongoing series from the creator of Jio introduces Mystickers and the “Blazers” who can tap into the tattoo-esque inventions' more advanced powers. (Moar babble after the manga list.)
