Until Death Do Us Part 7, Soul Eater 8, Team Medical Dragon 17 (Level Comics 28 June 2011 manga) [UPDATED]

And...Dun, dun, dun, DUN!... Death's Notice 7!
Sawry for the NikBabble™ delay; there's a LOT of Level Comics to get through. (That's your Hella Long! warning.)

Until Death Do Us Part 7 (Level Comics)

Shi ga Futari wo Wakatsu Made © Takashige Hiroshi & DOUBLE-S
Square Enix [Serialized in Young Gangan]
Published in Indonesia as Until Death do us Part by Elex Media/Level Comics

Mission Exterminate Assassins in Shinjukugyoen, Start-OH!, and who should get in Mamoru's face but Detective Genda. In this inevitable badass showdown, which swordsman will prevail?

Observes Until Death do us Part editor Lenny-san: The Full action & technology! spares no one, not even Haruka; she leaps into the Volume 7: Girl meets...... crossfire armed with what Mamoru taught her ^^

Lenny-san likewise edits the also Full of fighting scenes! Soul Eater, Level's next Most Wanted manga separated from UDDUP by one point (my vote ^^).

Soul Eater 8 of 19+ by Ohkubo Atsushi

The SPSS (DWMA) mandates meisters and weapons to study Duel Arts to prep for combat against the first Kishin and the Arachnophobia syndicate. But resonance hiccups result in training #Fail.

Meanwhile, Medusa soul's survives Stein's death blow and resurfaces in a new body.

Lenny-san promises that we get Awesome! Death The Kid action in this tank (see »Wiki's summary for a sneak peek at asymmetriphobic DTK's virtuosity). Also, the Shinigama–Witch clot, errr, plot, deepens ^_^

Soul Eater 8 compiles chapter 28 through 31: Bodyguard (Part 2), Snake and Reunion Express (Part 1 and 2). [*NOT Level's chapter titles]

The third top DO WANT!—Team Medical Dragon 17—yes, also edited by Ganbariya-san Lenny-san, making 6.28 a Lenny trifecta, is previewed behind the cut, along with seven other starred series.

New Level manga: Kowloon's Seekers

Kowloon's Seekers 1 (Level Comics)

Shin Kijou no Kowloon
© Aoki Tomo & Nagasaki Takashi
Shinchosha [Comic Bunch]
Published in Indonesia
as Kowloon's Seekers
by Level Comics

Mid-21st century. Tsukueda Kyu is a seeker living in Neo Kowloon. Raised by the genetically engineered rabbit, Rabbi, Kyu hunts for missing ‘goods’ and ‘hearts’ in Tokyo, along with his animal sidekick slash parent.

Little do Kyu and Rabbi expect their next seeker case to pit them against Monk, a genius chimpanzee with big Annihilate humans! schemes. A chimp modified by Professor Moro, the same (mad) scientist who tweaked Rabbi.

Lenny-san (*grin*) deems this new science fiction/detective series a must for 20th Century Boys and Monster fans. Why? Explains an unidentified Elex Media editor: writer Nagasaki Takashi collaborates with Urasawa Naoki on Monster and Billy Bat. Nagasaki Takashi-sensei was also among the planning staff of the live-action 20th Century Boys movie, as well as supervisor of the Monster anime for Studio Bee.

Meanwhile, manga-ka Aoki Tomo-sensei has more shoujo than seinen manga among his/her backlist (Fushigi Doushiden Hakke no Sora, Ryuuyou-kun Shimatsu Ki and the ongoing Sangokushi Joker, all first serialized in Akita Shoten's Mystery Bonita horror comics magazine).

Baka-Updates Manga identifies the 2002.12-vintage Kijou no Kuryuu or Kijou no Kowloon as the prequel to Kowloon's Seekers. I wonder, though, whether the latter is truly a continuation; I lean more to a reworking, I don't know why. Kijou no Kowloon was published by Shogakukan (Big Comics Special imprint) while Kowloon's Seekers was published by Shinchosha (Comic Bunch Extra imprint).

Lenny-san's GET! parting shot: Kyu and Rabbi solve cases not only with logic and deduction, but also with liver heart ♡. The poignant backstories don't lose out to the exciting cases >0<

☆ Bambino! 12 of 15 by Sekiya Tetsuji

Joshua Levine invites Ban and Coyote to cook for him. Coyote appears to take the annoying Joshua with a grain of salt—or does he? Coyote suddenly flees the Levine kitchen, without so much as a “Laters!”

Can Ban succeed where Coyote—can you call it “Fail”? What will Ban prepare to satisfy Levine's finicky palate?

Bambino! editor Sina-san underscores how much Ban's patience is tested in this volume spanning chapters 121 through 131.

☆ Basara 18 of 27 by Tamura Yumi

Upon her return to Suo, Sarasa hears out a plea for help from a group of Dazaifu youth. Sarasa departs for Dazaifu, all the while on the lookout for assassins. Elsewhere, Shuri prepares to advance to the Black King's stronghold with Yuna and Nakijin.

Editor Lenny-san (xD) describes Basara as an unconventional josei manga, full of political intrigue and battle strategies more appropriate to a guys' comics. She adds that the psychological conflict resembles that found in Shakespeare's works, echoing the English-translation editor who styles Basara as a highly Shakespearean story.

I doubt Typical Shoujo Triad founding member @oebee_cherry-san needs name-dropping to continue investing in Basara; she's been after me to try it out. I am sooo tempted, especially as Lenny-san hints at many touching moments in this volume and highlights the strength of the Shuri × Sarasa bond.

☆ Bronze Angel 3 of 7 by Saito Chiho

Natalya runs into d'Anthes at a horse race. Because her sister Ekaterina has shown her interest in d'Anthes, Natalya tries her hand at matchmaking. d'Anthes, however, mistakes Natalya's “advances” for something else, and Natalya's heart starts to waver...

Some say that those who attempt to matchmake end up falling in love themselves
reminds editor Sina-san, and this is exactly what happens to Natalya in Bronze Angel 3 ^^

☆ Death's Notice 7 of 9+ by Mase Motoro

If I give up here, my life amounts to nothing more than a lie!

Japan passes the National Prosperity Law that selects random citizens to receive ikigami (death notices). The recipients are literally forced to die — for the greater good. Is it any wonder that few go gracefully into the good night?

I can add: When Social Services send an inspector to assess the work of Fujimoto, the death notice server suddenly feels the weight of the state's suspicion, making it difficult for him to aid two ikigami victims. Ikigami, préavis de mort, tome 7 synopsis (Kazé Editions)

Editor Fitri-san emphasizes Death's Notice's soul-shaking What will you do in your last 24 hours? drama.

Volume 7 collects Episodes 13 and 14: Photo of the Deceased and The Dream I Tried to Make Come True. [*NOT Level's titles; from VIZ Media's Ikigami: The Ultimate Limit, Vol. 7 blurb]

☆ Devil Devil 2 of 15 by Miyoshi Yuuki

Mizuno tells her rescuer Sword how to regain his demonic powers and the pair journey to Mizuno's grandfather's inn. But instead of full devil revival, what awaits Sword is execution for aiding the angel Ios.

Devil Devil's charm point is the Angel/Devil subversion — how arch-enemies Sword and Ios comically end up as human brothers, complete with a 180 degree-'tude switch. Sword possesses the weakling Souma and in his human form, constantly lands in the hospital (not to mention gets chibi-tized ^^) Editor Nickyta Oliver Fonda-san guarantees you will never be bored with Sword's antics because albeit a devil, he's not like all the other demons hahaha.

☆ The Fugitive Lawyer Makoto Narita 6 of 6 by Go Hideki and Takada Yu

I will not give up; I will uncover the truth!

Betrayed by the judicial system he upholds, lawyer Narita Makoto hides among society's throng, all the while seeking to clear his name of false murder, arson and embezzlement charges.

Will the fugitive lawyer ever find justice?

Editor Nickyta-san sheds a few tears T_T over the ending of the Makoto Narita series, noting how the story makes the reader want to help Makoto, but obviously Can't! >.< (I don't know whether the sequel Shin Toubou Bengoshi Narita Makoto, three volumes as at April 2011, relieves that frustration.) Nickyta-san is also pleased to provide this    [Mini-spoiler]:

Public prosecutor Mafune and Makoto finally meet.

☆ RRR 2 of 10 by Watanabe Jun

Rikitaro, frantically looking for a job while taking care of Aozora, guests on the reality show hosted by world boxing champion Oishi Raita. The champ's training is Spartan at best and not serious enough Rikitaro is pushed around by Oishi.

Can Rikitaro survive his 15 minutes of fame?

Funn-eh!! thumbs up RRR editor Nickyta-san. Whatever Rikitaro does produces >.<, especially now that he has to provide for the needs of Aozora, the child of his sib who already passed away.

☆ Team Medical Dragon 17 of 25 by Nogizaka Taro & Nagai Akira

Cardiac surgeon Izaka conceals her pregnancy and an anxious Noboru tries to coax her into talking with Akira. But Izaka staunchly refuses, so fearful that she considers an abortion.

What terrifies Izaka?

Dr. Izaka is not the only one with pregnancy problems. Fetal abnormalities haunt Profesor Takeo's daughter-in-law in Team Medical Dragon 17.

Sez editor Lenny-san: We get a look-see the personal problems Mei Shin hospital doctors face. Exactly what kind of problems? Preview »here.
