Vampire Knight 13 and...Vampire Knight 13 (Chuang Yi 22 March 2011 English and simplified Chinese manga)

Also, the simplified Chinese ONE PIECE #61 manga (ISBN: 978-981-4341-22-6), which caught up with its Japanese counterpart in under seven weeks. If only Japan's recovery were to take place within a similar time window; we can only pray for Japan and/or help Japan in these distressing times.

With Chuang Yi's simultaneous release today of Hino Matsuri's Vampire Knight 13 (ISBN: 978-981-4323-00-4) and 吸血鬼骑士 #13 (ISBN: 978-981-4323-93-2), need to excerpt only one summary up here.

After the suspicious deaths of the true blood Ori and a hunter, Yuki sets out with Aido on a mission to offer death seekers her services. On the way, she is attacked by the head of the Toma clan and is saved by none other than Zero. Kaname brings her back home to recuperate, and reveals a shocking secret to her! At his bidding, Yuki drinks his blood, and his memories of the past flow into her. What revelations will she behold about events in the time of the ancestors?

Need SGD 3.40 more, however, if you opt to GET! the English version over the Chinese, which retails for SGD 5.50 per volume.
