Would've liked to lead with Bambino!'s Ban (who now has to master dolce, but pastry chef Oda won't let him touch anything, much less attempt a dessert on his own), but I was late requesting for a cover. So Eiji it is. In any case, the word for Eiji and Ryoko this Level manga release is Cannabis. What exactly does Cannabis have to do with Ikushima who appears before Eiji? Find out in Psychometrist Eiji 18, streeting this Wednesday.

Jepang Tenggelam 9 of 15 by Komatsu Sakyou & Ishiki Tokihiko

It's All Green! for Project A—the plan to stop Japan from sinking further—as support pours in from all quarters. Well, almost all; D Project discovers a fatal flaw in the scheme that could actually lead to a larger catastrophe and scrambles to prevent further tragedy.
