[Serialized in Princess]
Published in Indonesia as Song of Love by Gramedia/m&c!
“Someday, you, too, will leave Eri.”
Kyoko's words trouble Ritsu, but Ritsu decides to behave as if nothing's amiss. Determined to improve, she practices her singing exercises to avoid disturbing Eiri's piano playing. As always though, disaster finds Ritsu with metronome predictability.
So goes this Song of Love finale tease (with a LOT of additions from Kazé's Trill on Eden tome 8 blurb). That love's trill eventually triumps in uniting two contrary hearts is a given.
Song of Love 8 compiles Phrase 35 through 37 (Last Phrase) and the two-part extra Obbligato 1 and 2. New to Fujita Maki's Eden no Trill? Ain't too late; m&c! restocks volumes 1 through 7 this 28 June.
As for the #1 DO WANT! (which doesn't grab the headline pix because I already led with it the last time) —
Newly-wed Hyota (Yoshitsune) finds some peace in Kamakura, but not for long. Over in Kurikara, Minamoto no Yoshinaka prepares to face a hundred thousand Heike troops. Will Hyota have to fight in this historic battle at Kurikara Pass?
Speaking of box sets...

m&c! bundles Bleach 25: No Shaking Throne (in which Ichigo is forced to ask the Visored for training), through to Bleach 30: There Is No Heart Without You (Rukia comes face to face with a blast from her past: her former squad lieutenant, Shiba Kaien). The set retails for IDR 95,000.
Missed any of the volumes before 25? Check out this release list Restocks. (They're also IDR 95,000 per six-volume set.)
m&c! wraps up Shiumi Saki's Koigokoro or The Awakening of Love mini-series with When Love Is Blooming; launches the sequel to Wang Fenglei's story, The Story of Wang Fenglei Season 2 (Wang Fenglei recovers from injuries sustained in the battle against the Sword Demon and prepares to to take on new foes); and introes a new shoujo series from Takagi Shigeyoshi, Film Girl.
♡ When Love Is Blooming needs no introduction if you've already read the prequels When Love is Hiding (also restocked this release) and When Love is Growing. Basically, Ritsuka dukes it out with “rival” Aizawa-sensei. Lina-chan rates this a 7 of 10. I concur.
The Hijiri × Ritsuka romance takes three chapters—
Jealous Love and
Blooming Love—to conclude. The final
Admire Love one-shot is the story of Ritsuka's friend. (I give it a 6 of 10, readable but not emotionally resonant.)
♡ Film Girl, meanwhile, stars Ordinary High School Student Nakamura Mei, who bumps into the bishie model Shirou and is shocked to find out Le Smexy Shirou is a Mei is my wife! otaku. (He's been crushing on her from the time she was a child model.) Lina-chan gives Film Girl 1 an 8 of 10 ♥ and recommends it as a GET!. I give it 7.25, the fraction simply because of Industrial-Grade Pretty :D
