RINNE 5 by Takahashi Rumiko (Chuang Yi 5 April 2011 English manga)

Also, simplified Chinese mangaDN Angel #12, can you believe? (Scroll down for DARK × Daisuke's testosteroney companions.)

Also, don't know why The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya manga volume 8 went from Coming soon at 2011-04-05 to dateless between 2 and 4 April. I woulda thunk Chuang Yi woulda pushed it, seeing as Season 2 of the Haruhi Suzumiya anime premieres on the 6th on Animax. In any case —

In RINNE 5 (ISBN: 978-981-4323-74-1), can Rinne help a totally smitten female Shinigami find a misplaced sib, when all he can think about is Sakura? Wouldn't be a Takahashi Rumiko manga without the odd rabu triangle or two, but this ghostbustin' threesome's gotta be one of the oddest.

RINNE 5 compiles chapters:
39. The Hot Secretary's True Identity
40. Rich Girl
41. Just a Simple Thanks
42. Soul Eater King
43. The Unopenable Bookshelves
44. Roses and Soy Sauce
45. The Cursed Track Star
46. I Don't Want Him to Know
47. The Haunted Cedar
48. Yo-Yo Memories

Hai, hai. Chuang Yi's simplified Chinese DN Angel #12 is here — after four years and seven months. (To put that wait in perspective, babies have gone from the maternity ward to preschool in the time it took to get from #11, released 2006.08.14, to this #12.) Comfort yourself with D・N・ANGEL 12 (shipped 2008.06.17 in Japan) taking under three years to reach you, if it helps any. ('Course you won't find solace when you realize that Sugisaki Yukiru's magic kaitou shoujo series is a-gain on hiatus (most recent tankou: volume 15).

Good thing, the shounen manga streeting this Tuesday—Tanabe Yellow's Kekkaishi, Matsuena Syun's Shijou Saikyou no Denshi Kenichi and Aoyama Gosho's Meitantei Conan—count a wait time of at most two months from the Japanese original (not to mention, are healthily current):

Next Chuang Yi release: 19 April 2011 (Tuesday)
