Please keep praying for Japan and/or do something to help the 3.11 quake and tsunami victims. ANN reports that all Shogakukan (and Shueisha) manga creators have checked in safe (Minami Kanan, Hattori Miki and Nagayama Ei, whose manga appear here, are all Shogakukan manga-ka).

Conventional wisdom holds that DAL (Deep Abiding Love) grows deeper following the resolution of UST (Unresolved Sexual Tension), but in fic terms, the development doesn't make for gripping reading. (Why else do you think stories end just when
They lived happily ever after?) Minami Kanan-sensei is obviously aware of this because the Happy Happy “honeymoon” between Tsubaki and Kyota soon founders on angst, or so promises the back cover blurb of Kyou, Koi wo Hajimemasu/Today, the Love begin volume 10.
The following contains [SPOILERS!]
So even in the midst of seriously delish nookie (Tsubaki and Kyota Did It in the previous volume, remember?), Tsubaki continues to worry. Worry escalates to full-blown anxiety when Kyota's mom comes to visit him on his birthday. Kyota turns her away and refuses to accept the birthday gift she got for him. Tsubaki who wants to be Kyota's pillar of strength then decides to...

He Is More Than My Brother

An earns the nickname
Brother Complex because at sweet 16, she remains single and lives only for Big Bro. But the way An looks at it, as long as she has oniichan, she doesn't need a boyfriend. An's childhood pal Souya disagrees. Souya, the polar opposite of An's brother, then ups and confesses to An.
Herein lies the dilemma: An professes to hate Souya, but how come her heart races in his presence? Does this mean An's about to be cured of her brother complex?

I preview Nagayama Ei-sensei's Boys Girl 2 after the manga list. I don't know whether Boys Girl 2 is rated for [DEWASA] or Mature audiences, but He Is More Than My Brother and Today, the Love begin 10 definitely are.

Published in Indonesia
by Tiga Lancar Comic
Any boy who dares to touch man-hater Kokona can look forward to being sent disappearing with a twinkle up into the sky, but not Misaki. He gets to date Kokona because he doesn't give her the creeps. Kokona even mistook him for a girl in the beginning.
Kokona's childhood friend Kotaro, who transfers into her school, notes the change with suspicion. It's so drastic that now, even if he, Kotaro, touches her, she doesn't react like she used to.
And as if one skeptical friend weren't enough, Kokona has to also deal with Rei, Misaki's ex, who pursues Misaki to the same school.
I bought and read volume 1 but I'm reluctant to get this next installment.
Still no word of when Nakagaki Tomoe's Teacher/Student-troped Honey Boy 1 (Hachimitsu Shounen) will street (saw it advertised at the end of I Need Job!! 2).
