I Love You, Suzuki kun!! 8 and Sky Blue Ageha 2 of 2 (3L shoujo manga out naaw~)

I haven't seen these 3L shoujo manga in the wild, but Angelzon sez they shipped last Wednesday.

Published in Indonesia as I Love You, Suzuki kun!! and Sky Blue Ageha by Tiga Lancar Comic/3L

May contain   [SPOILAGE!]

Fated reunions and isshokenmei tennis struggles on deck as 3L releases Ikeyamada Go's I Love You, Suzuki kun!! 8 and Kumagai Kyoko's Sky Blue Ageha 2 of 2. First up, the series Wiki highlights as one of the top 10 most heart♥-wrenching, as ranked by readers of Junon magazine:

Hikaru goes through days oblivious since his parting with Sayaka. But he sparks to life when he sees Sayaka, the artist. He meets Sayaka, but all he gets for saying how much he misses her is a beating. Is 'Naruse Sayaka' really Hikaru's Sayaka? How come she can't remember anything about their common past?

For once, I won't have to ask my usual Shinobu × Chihiro wa? because the other romance set also reunites.

☆ I preview Sky Blue Ageha Behind The Cut, but noting up here that these two titles are rated for Dewasa or Mature audiences.

In a match against Yanagawa High, however, Ageha suffers stunning defeat. Later she learns that Takeru-kun staked himself in a bet for Ageha's rematch with the American tennis player from Yanagawa. How can Ageha win, knowing that Takeru-kun plans to transfer schools just as she competes?
