Topeng Kaca: Dua Akoya 1 by Miuchi Suzue, Here we are 14, Red Haired Anne 4 (Elex Media 30 March 2011 manga) [UPDATE 2]

Binding mistake on Topeng Kaca: Dua Akoya 1 (deets below)

Topeng Kaca: Dua Akoya 1 (Elex Media)

Glass no Kamen © Miuchi Suzue/Hakusensha
[Serialized in Bessatsu Hana to Yume]
Published in Indonesia as Serial Topeng Kaca: Dua Akoya by Elex Media

Did Topeng Kaca: Dua Akoya pique your interest? Yup, it's the Topeng Kaca continuation—specifically, Glass no Kamen volume 45—picking up from where Crimson Angel/Bidadari Merah 11/Glass no Kamen 44 left off.


[This Just In]
Elex Media advises and apologizes for the binding mistake in Topeng Kaca: Dua Akoya. Contents follow Western orientation (reads from left-to-right), but were published in Japanese binding (right-to-left).

To avoid confusion, Elex recommends reading BOTH the right-hand side pages (recto) and the left-hand side pages (verso) from left to right.

Actually, Dua Akoya isn't the only 3.30 Elex shoujo manga that numbers/titles differently from the Japanese original. Red Haired Anne 4, for instance, is actually the one-volume mangafication of L.M. Montgomery's Anne of Avonlea classic — Anne no Seishun, in which Anne begins teaching at Avonlea school. The story brings back characters from Akage no Anne/Anne of Green Gables (Red Haired Anne 1-3 here), but also introduces Green Gables' newest residents, adopted twins Davy and Dora. Anne no Seishun is succeeded by Anne no Aijou/Anne of the Island (also one volume).

☆ Previewing Reverse Harem Blooming Youth 1 by Itsuki Natsumi and the first Goddess of a Department Store by Morino Aki Below The Cut, but noting up here how I missed reporting the Indonesian debut of Project X, the non-fiction manga series following the ordeals of successful entrepreneurs, among them, the founders of the Japanese 7-Eleven chain, the original Datsun 240 Z designer and the Cup Noodle inventor, among others. Elex released Project X: CUP NOODLE last February, Project X: Digital Camera in December 2010 and Project X: HONDA: Conquer The World's Top Race in June 2010.

For this release sked, Elex launches Project X: SHINKANSEN. I spotlight this particular manga-format economics/business reference because the speed record breaking bullet train symbolized Japan's postwar revival, and the same kind of tenacity that gave birth to the Shinkansen will be needed to pull the country out of the its present crisis. (So let's all continue to pray for Japan and do what we can to help.)

Here we are 14 14+ by Obata Yuuki

The second most popular DO WANT!—Obata Yuuki's Here we are 14—makes me feel old, cuz, you know, Nanami has gone from 17 to 24, and I can't even remember when I first started this series. In any case, the summary helps to remind just Where We Are:

After refusing Takeuchi's marriage proposal, Nanami realizes her true feelings and resolves to see Yano. Six years of no contact, however, means more than Six Degrees Separate the two, the distance evidently not contracting any time soon. Yano, on the other hand, decides to visit Takeuchi, angering his friend because Yano still cares for Nanami.

    Adaptations
    At least three Glass no Kamen anime adaptations have been produced: The first by Eiken, spanning 23 episodes, aired between April and September 1984 on Japan's NTV. Seiyuu Katsuki Masako voiced Kitajima Maya, Matsushima Minori as Maya's rival Himekawa Ayumi, Nakanishi Taeko as Maya's mentor Tsukikage Chigusa and Nozawa Nachi as businessman Hayami Masumi.

    TMS Entertainment produced the next anime, a three-episode OAV Garasu no Kamen: Sen no Kamen wo Motsu Shōjo (Glass Mask: The Girl Who Wears A Thousand Masks), released December 1998. The OAV retelling of the first three manga arcs featured a different voice cast: Ogata Megumi (Maya), Matsui Naoko (Ayumi), Toda Keiko (Tsukikage) and Kosugi Juurouta (Hayami).

    TMS remade the series in 2005, this time casting Kobayashi Sanae, Yajima Akiko, Fujita Toshiko and Morikawa Toshiyuki as Maya, Ayumi, Tsukikage and Hayami, with the 1984 anime Maya returning as Ayumi's mother, Himekawa Utako. Fifty-one episodes aired between April 2005 and March 2006 on TV Tokyo.

    The live-action version adapting the first 38 manga volumes ran for two seasons on TV Asahi (Season 1: July to September 1997, 11 episodes; Season 2: April to June 1998, 12 episodes), with the Season 1 episode 12 airing on 30 September 1999 (the Special Ending). The TV drama Seasons 1-2 cast comprised Adachi Yumi as Maya, Matsumoto Megumi as Ayumi, Nogiwa Yoko as Tsukikage and Tanabe Seiichi as Hayami. All reprised their roles for the Special Ending except Ayumi's actor (replaced by Nakamura Aimi).

New Titles continued

Blooming Youth 1 of 12 by Itsuki Natsumi

Someone tries to assassinate the Crown Prince of Ragine whilst he is in New York for a conference. There's no doubt as to who's the triggerman, but for the sake of Raginei, the prince has no choice but to attend the summit. To protect the prince, he is whisked off to a safehouse with a friend.

Elex Media Book Review's editor notes that Blooming Youth is the story of a prince leading a country in conflict. But in case you haven't seen the anime and am wondering why I slapped Reverse Harem Before The Cut, take a look at Wiki's Hanasakeru Seishounen write-up, excerpted below:

Set in the modern era, the story follows the path to romance of fourteen-year-old Kajika Burnsworth, daughter of powerful industrialist Harry Burnsworth, owner of the Burnsworth international conglomerate giant. Kajika agrees to participate in a “marriage game” with her father, in which she must select her future husband out of three men that her father has supposedly preselected for her.

Suitor #1 is Eugene Alexandr De Volkan (voiced by Ono Daisuke in the anime), who physically resembles Kajika's snow leopard; Suitor #2 is Prince Rumaty Ivan Di Raginei (Namikawa Daisuke in the anime), whom you already met in Elex's blurb, and Suitor #3 is the claustrophobic heir to the Rosenthal fortune, Carl Rosenthal (voiced by Fukuyama Jun).

As for why Elex opted to go the political intrigue route, Wiki sez:

Despite its shōjo-romance undertones, the story itself evolves as a power political mystery involving a small, middle eastern country called Raginei. Raginei as a country is only 1,000 years old, but became extremely wealthy within the last 50 years or so due to a change in ideals implemented by past King Machaty that allowed the international export of oil. While Kajika searches for her suitors and puzzles over the concept of love, the country is thrown into political turmoil and Kajika's friendship with Prince Rumaty Ivan, as well as the Burnsworth relationship with Raginei, lands her right in the middle of it all.

Elex adds that Blooming Youth spans six volumes and is still ongoing, but everything I've seen on teh internets points to the LaLa serial having concluded at 12 volumes. There was a one-shot sequel in Melody's 27 June 2009 issue and what appears to be a special compilation — Hanasakeru Seishounen: Tokubetsuhen (Hana to Yume Comics Special, one volume per 2011.03). Elex omits how this series was first reported as an Upcoming in May/June 2010, not that I really expected it to.

Itsuki Natsumi is also the manga-ka of Jyu Oh Sei (released by m&c! in three bunkoban in July 2008) and Yakumo Tatsu AKA Eight Clouds Rising.

Goddess of a Department Store by Morino Aki

As for why I bookended Morino Aki's Goddess of a Department Store with Series Premiere AND Serial Cantik (normally mutually exclusive, if you recall that Serial Cantik represents Elex's shoujo/josei standalone line), that's because there are actually two more Depato no Megami volumes: Yukue Fumei no Cinderella or Missing Cindella (Depato no Megami volume 2 per 2010.04) and Princess ni Kuchizuke wo/Kissing the Princess (volume 3 per 2010.11). Of course this is not the first time Elex released a series as SC standalones (see Hidaka Banri's Akiyoshi Family Series) and prolly has nothing to do with the fact that Elex first advised Goddess of a Department Store as an Upcoming in October. But enough back story. Blurb —

Takeya is the oldest department store in Ginza, and it is Miyatake Sakuro's responsibility to attract more customers as more modern department stores sprout. Takeya's new director thus goes undercover as a janitor to find out what customers desire. Only one Takeya employee knows that janitor Kuro is Sakuro in disguise — his girlfriend Kasuga Beni.

With this Goddess of a Department Store, Sakuro handles headaches that crop up, ranging from unmasking spies from a rival department store to uncovering a case of attempted murder in a Takeya-subsidiary hotel.

Aside from the intrigue meets romance Goddess of a Department Store, Elex published Morino Aki-sensei's two-volume seiyuu-troped Delusive Voice.

Project X: Shinkansen by Project X Team

Project X: Shinkansen (Elex Media)

Project X: Shinkansen
© Project X Team/
Ohzora Shuppan

The Shinkansen became the symbol of Japan's postwar revival, the railway revolution led by Imperial Japanese Army scientists who worked on aircraft design during the war, who could only realize their dream of a fast train during peacetime. Their tenacity managed to overcome dissenting opinions to give birth to a ground-breaking mass railway system eventually adopted by other countries, even continents away.

For a more voluble (Indonesian) summary, go to Elex Media Book Review.

If Elex's 192-paged, differently-covered Project X: Shinkansen corresponds to プロジェクトX挑戦者たち コミック版 〔2〕 執念が生んだ新幹線, published by Ohzora Shuppan in December 2002, then it contains these chapters:
1. Saikai/Reunion
2. Kunou/Agony
3. Shuuyaku/Intensive
4. Shidou/Start
5. Tanjou/Birth
Last chapter Yume/Dream

Finales

Cynical Kanoko 3 of 3 by Tsujita Ririko

Naedoko Kanoko takes her 'observer' hobby anywhere she goes, keeping a running commentary on classroom drama. But before graduating from her final junior high, she's actually kept busy by a willful company director's grandson (daughter?) who acts just as s/he pleases. Despite her unhappiness over the changes she sees, Kanoko feels that going against so much power is useless.

But then again, doesnt the world belong to the discontented?

This volume closes Kanoko-sama's junior high Secret Notes, but her (and Tsubaki's) adventures continue through high school in Koi dano Ai dano, the Cynical Kanoko sequel (two volumes per 2011.02, ongoing) that Elex will release ... (don't know when.)

If you've come to Kanoko-sama snark late, here's our review of volume 1.

The Recipe for Gertrude 3 of 5 by Kusakawa Nari

His injury forces patchwork demon Gertrude to ask old foe Curtis to stay by Sahara's side. Curtis assents, on the condition that Sahara find the contract between Curtis and Gertrude, hidden among the clouds. If she fails to do so within 60 minutes, Sahara has to give up part of her soul to Curtis.
[Additions from CMX's The Recipe for Gertrude, Vol. 3 description]

The Recipe for Gertrude 3 compiles chapters 9 through 13 and a side story, The Bag's Contents.

The rest of the ongoing series

  • Hitohira 3 by Kirihara Idumi: The day of the decisive stage play has arrived, and Shy Girl Mugi finds herself before the spotlight, in a lead role written for her by Nono. What awaits Mugi when the curtains come down?
  • Piano Hutan 19 by Isshiki Makoto: Kai's turn to perform in the second round is up, and wanting to repay Ajino's kindness all this time, he plays the piano as if he were still at the edge of the woods where he grew up. But Ajino only cherishes one hope, that is, to let the whole world listen to Kai's music.
  • Shade 2 by Ahn NohEun & CATTY: Without meaning to, Hyonki manages to drag out his Shade. What startles Hyonki is the Shade's resemblance to Soi's Shade Ryong, the only difference being Ryong acting like a human. Could Ryong be Soi's reincarnation?
  • Want You 8 by Hwang MiRee: Herem and Changnok survive the train crash and make haste to return to Seoul. When they arrive at home, they are greeted by parents Hoiyun and Yohan. Thanks to the 'rents' story, the identity of Herem's real cousin is revealed.

Can't find a blurb for New Legenda Naga 8, and I can't read Chuang Yi's simplified Chinese 龙狼传 中原缭乱篇 #8 blurb. Oh, wait.

[Shonen Sunday]

Kucabara enters into a contract with Jupiter, vowing to extract Jupiter's wrongfully accused parents from the demon world. The nun Idamaria, an exorcism specialist expected to accompany Kucabara, however, pulls out at the last minute. Ultimately, Kucabara infiltrates hell with the imp-like Bichura, but can he succeed without Idamaria's dark matter?

Not sure to which Judgement (chapter) the above summary refers, but going by Wiki's Defense Devil volume list , it could allude to Judgement-10 A Promise and a Contract (chapter 38). Don't take my word for it, though, as I jump to that conclusion based on circumstantial chapter title evidence. The ensuing Kucabara, Idamaria, Bichura, and an artificial intelligent car named Jody, infiltrate hell in order to save Jupiter's parents who are wrongly suffering in hell/Idamaria's alleged presence during the rescue mission, after the editor waza waza wrote the Idamaria yang diharapkan ikut untuk membantunya di saat terakhir menolak pergi ke dunia iblis red herring) throws off my inference.

Ah, well, just take it as a done deal that that a Defense Devil Hell chapter is on its way, along with the latest installments of other Shonen (Sunday) Stars: ARAGO by Arai Takahiro; Detektif Conan by Aoyama Gosho; D-LIVE!! by Minagawa Ryouji; Dr. Koto by Yamada Takatoshi; Inuyasha by Takahashi Rumiko; Kekkaishi by Tanabe Yellow; Magical Iroha by Inoue Kazurou (albeit conspicuously missing from the Shonen Star 6/2011 cover line-up); My First Mr. Akuno by Fujiki Syun; Takkoku!!! by Fukuchi Tsubasa; Wild Life by Fujisaki Masato; and Yakitate!!
