For latest installments of Detektif Conan Defense Devil and My First Mr. Akuno, see Shonen Star 1/2011, also streeting 1.19.

The Elex top DO WANT! manga award goes to Aoyama Gosho's Detektif Conan 59 that continues the FBI's struggle to rescue one of its own from the Black Organization. But can Akai & Co. still be saved? The same Conan tank also tackles the case of attempted murder with volcanic phosphorus.

Meanwhile, two Hakusensha Hana to Yume A-listers make a comeback: Skip Beat!, with volume 18, and Alice Academy (volume 14). In volume 18 of Nakamura Yoshiki's Skip Beat!, Kyoko's acting skills are put to the test when Hizuri orders her to play his teenaged son, much to (real, now older son) Ren's dismay.

In Higuchi Tachibana's Alice Academy 14, Mikan makes a new friend in Koizumi, whose Alice power remains unknown, but who always seems to end up getting Mikan into trouble.

Reissues

Elex also reissues Detektif Conan in volumes 1-10 and 11-20 box sets. For those looking to start collecting, each value bundle goes for IDR 160,000.

Pallete of 12 Secret Colors vol 2 (Nari Kusakawa)
Rated 8.5/10
Wah...cerita mengenai penyihir warna ini makin lama semakin seru ^^
Ada 3 chapter di vol 2 ini (chapter 4 s,d 6), 1 extra story dan ada 1 one-shot thriller-romance berjudul The Papillons Contract.

Chapter 4 bercerita mengenai perayaan Natal di pulau Opal. Wah...kebayang kan gimana bingungnya orang-orang pulau selatan ini merayakan event yang biasanya diselenggarakan di negeri utara?
Selama ini penduduk Opal tidak pernah merayakan Natal, namun kedatangan putri yang menyamar jadi pangeran, Othello dari negeri Halley, membuat sekolah pallete menyelenggarakan perayaan Natal untuk pertama kalinya.
Siapa ya, orang dari negeri Utara yang bisa dimintai pertolongan sebagai koordinator acara ini?
Psst…hubungan cinta Cello dan Pak Guell mungkin akan mengalami sedikit hambatan, karena partner mereka, Yoyo dan Olga jealous berat hihihi…

Chapter 5 menceritakan masa kecil Yoyo, burung yang menjadi partner Cello. Keluarga Cello sempat mengira Yoyo diambil dari nama mainan itu dan cellist terkenal, Yo Yo Ma XD. Kisah persahabatan Yoyo dan Cello ini sangat mengharukan dan menarik untuk dibaca.

Chapter 6 berkisah mengenai kedatangan Pak Guru Guell ke rumah Cello. Tahukah kalian siapa anggota keluarga Cello yang paling nge-fans dengan Pak Guell? XD

Extra story ini mengenai asal muasal nama Cello. Kocak dan mengundang tawa.

Sementara itu Pappilons Contract menawarkan kisah yang menarik mengenai kasus percobaan pembunuhan. Tenang saja, kisahnya ringan dan tidak luput dari sentuhan manis shoujo manga
