Hoping none of these manga decide to resked between this post's Sunday publication and Chuang Yi's on the date confirm. Although I doubt Are You Alice? will budge from 3 May, otherwise we're really heading into curiouser and curiouser territory. »Edit They did budge, but only by one day (streeted 4 May).

Also, VAGABOND 24 and the simplified Chinese Kaichou wa Maid-sama! #12 and The Ravages of Time #41.
It's not the Alice in Wonderland bloodbath that Alice in the Country of Hearts is, but I still welcome Are You Alice?, starring a bishounen ‘Alice’ who must off the White Rabbit or
it's off with his head!, as Chuang Yi gleefully points out. Sounds plenty bloody enuf to me ^^
In other 2D bishies, Tsukimori Can't. Spit. Something. Out in La Corda d'Oro 14, news that stands to shock Kaho-chan (and gladden the hearts of Tsukimori's rivals).

Taking part in another music concours was the last thing on Kahoko's mind, but she takes up the challenge when Tsukimori's former teacher Mr. Saotome offers to become her violin teacher should she win a prize at the concours. As she ponders her options, Tsukimori surprises her by offering to tutor her in preparation for the concours. But the more time they spend together, the more difficult it becomes for Tsukimori to inform Kahoko about his plans to study abroad. Can he figure out the reason before it's too late, or will it take a rude reminder from an observant rival to bring him to his senses?
