Taniyama Mai and the SPR Irregulars finally learn what/who Naru has been investigating all along. But what stuns Mai is Naru's real identity. Evidently, the Naru Mai knew all this time is but a guise to conceal...
Yeah, yeah, you already know the Big Naru Secret from the novels. My question: What happens to NaruMai in the last Ghost Hunt tankou? Also, is there any chance of Elex licensing the Akuryou/Ghost Hunt novels?

To pleasantly surprise Tomoe, Nanami borrows a kimono for the swamp princess Himemiko's party. To Nanami's chagrin, Tomoe's reaction is #$%^&*@!?, which leads her later into another animal rescue and an engagement with...a white snake?!
Fish go missing at the newly-opened Yamakawa aquarium and after some snooping, it turns out that the perp is none other than a sashimi-lurvin' octopus.
To teach Greedy Tentacles a lesson, a crab bait, dosed with tyramine, is placed on the octopus' plate, the
catecholamine (dopamine, norepinephrine (noradrenaline), epinephrine (adrenaline) releasing agent successfully immobilizing the tako.
I don't suppose this critter is meant for a future takoyaki fest, is it?
The rest of the ongoing series
- Culdcept 2 by Kaneko Shinya and OMIYA Soft: The Elf nation, a country of warriors and their dragons, survived the
War of the Godslargely due to the speed with which its forces confound the enemy. Apparently, the remnants of the Elf nation now live as recluses, reluctant to ever advance to the front lines again.
- Godhand Teru 31 by Yamamoto Kazuki: Teru finally becomes a senior and his first task is to guide a young trainee surgeon. Initially elated, Teru soon finds his new responsibility a challenge at best. His trainee pales at the sight of blood. What is Teru supposed to do now?
- K-On! 4 by Kakifly: Three years have passed for Yui and friends, which means soon they will be graduating — also from the light music club. But even with commencement exercises on the horizon, Ritsu and Yui still struggle with their next to not sterling grades and higher education choices. Meanwhile, the light music club still hasn't been able to recruit new members. Does this mean that from next year on, Azusa will be alone?
- Palette of 12 Secret Colors 3 by Kusakawa Nari: Feeling sorry for partner-less palette Fenne, Cello offers to help source out a possible bird. The pair eyes a black bird from a newly-migrated flock, but weaning the bird proves problematic.
Also, the return of Hinata Takeshi's SORA - The Wingless Duck, the volume 19 summary simply stating:
I came back for my own sake (talk about a masterpiece of apropos) and Ghost's Doctor 2, the back cover blurb reading like a quarter-column free talk (see below):
My name is Yuki Sato. The second book is already published... how fast time flies. Talking about time, lately, whenever I'm pressed for it, I relax at home in Kyushu. During summer, lots of black caterpillars get stuck to the house walls and mom uses chopsticks to pluck them off and dump them into an empty can...
