Idol Shopping 8 (m&c!)

That biatch teacher's obsession with Seo GaYoon spirals into madness, leading her to plot Kang SongYie's demise. Her insanity ratchets another notch when GaYoon manages to thwart her plans, leading her to take that last step...

Oh noes! Will SongYie and GaYoon survive the terminal Jealous Hag attack?Considering Idol Shopping has three more volumes to hurdle before the finale, what do you think? :P

Now for the two doki-doki inspiring penultimates —

Female Wolf's Boy 16 of 17 by Han YuRang ♡

Cha EunSoo still hasn't gone home, throwing cousin No GyuHyeon, boyfriend Sin HoWon and pals into total panic. Ex-BF Gang JaeHee also joins the search for the tomboy who has stolen his heart, but his enemies capitalize on the rumpus to wreak revenge on JaeHee.

I believe JaeHee will be able to track down EunSoo and rout those goons as an afterthought. After all, not only is he the ult jjang, he has to live up to the previous Female Wolf's Boy and his promise to keep her by my side and protect her!, a line that continues to resonate and weaken this fangirl's knees, three weeks after the fact.

Edit » GOT!, read and am giving Female Wolf's Boy 16 a grade of 8 of 10. Would've been higher if not for Why choose that story path?? and weird cliffie.

Ugly Duckling Become Swan 12 of 13 by Hwang MiRee ♡

This kiss... Let this kiss determine everything. Open your eyes and look at me. Then choose, DoJin...

How will DoJin react when he receives incontrovertible proof that the Future Mother of His Children Mio is the fat Ugly Duckling! Mio he professes to hate? Well, according to the Ugly Duckling Become Swan 12 cover, he sweeps her up in his arms, so his reax can't be all that bad :D

Edit » GOT!, read and am giving Ugly Duckling Become Swan 12 a grade of 7 of 10 for Habits Die Hard obstinacy. (Yes, I allude to the both of them.)

☆ I mumble about the debuting Pudding in Love from Shinozuka Hiromu After The Cut. Above is reserved for —

This ☂, VI [RE-STO] includes the first Miiko! series by Ono Eriko, Namaku Miiko!.

Also among the 14 titles restocked are m&c! AMERO comics, including volumes 1 to 3 of Mike Mignola's 10-volume Hellboy series—(1) Seed of Destruction, (2) Wake the Devil and (3) The Chained Coffin and Others—all still priced at IDR 45,000/volume.

New titles

Pudding in Love 1 of 5 by Shinozuka Hiromu

Hello, I'm Uchida Rina, 13 years old! My parents work abroad, so I live with the Yoshikawa family which includes twin sons who are the last word in cute.

I wish I could say the same for that “something” that also stays with us — something who's proving to be my greatest rival!

Pudding in Love, originally Koi suru Purin!, first serialized in Ciao around 2006. (The last tankou came out in May 2008.) It serialized in the Indonesian Cherry mangazine, concluding (if I'm not mistaken) late October last year.

In addition to Pudding in Love, m&c! has published Shinozuka Hiromu-sensei's Mirumo de Pon!, Game of Love and Love is On Air. Her current Ciao serial is the Agnostic Heroine meets Devil Baby, Chibi Devi! (five volumes as at March this year).

Finales

Prince X Princess 2 of 2 by Kiritani Miki

Kaguya Yuki's career in boy band ZAST seems to be going strong, even if s/he has to genderbend to achieve stardom.

We reviewed volume 1 of Prince X Princess, if you're thinking just now of getting this series from the creator of My Happiness in You.

The rest

  • Meet the Banchou 5 by Suzuki Nakaba: Just as Kongou Banchou defeats the Five Dark Vows, along comes a new enemy, Machine Banchou, to overturn the situation
  • Out Code 2 by Suzuragi Karin & Himenogi Haruhiko: Kirio's sister Mana is kidnapped. To save her, Kirio barges into the enemy's lair. But his adversary has laid a trap — a magnet controller. Can Mana be saved?
