Kokoro ・ Button © Usami Maki/Shogakukan [Serialized in Betsucomi]
Published in Indonesia as Love Button by Gramedia/m&c!
Updated with m&c!'s artwork and synopses (and just a bit of NikBabble™ :D)
Niina is still trial dating Koga-kun, despite sib's vehement objections and her own sneaking (Shoo! Shoo!) suspicion that there's no Happy Even After. Niina's Ganbarimasu! is (sorta) rewarded when Koga-kun promises to take her to the fireworks festival if/when she gets a minimum of 70 on her mid-terms.
Will he finally admit that he likes her, too?
Because of Love Button 3, Lina-chan and @MayzMeow are after me to pick up Usami Maki's Naive Female Lead × Tease shoujo manga again. I sooooo hated on the guy, I even forgot his name. But Lina-chan sez Koga-kun gets his ‘just desserts’ (plus Usami-sensei introes a megane bishie), while May-chan actually wubs Nina's naiveté, the
This Love Button tank also contains an extra story.
"I won't seek revenge by killing Gotouda; instead I will..."
The DVD chronicling Kotori's last moments reveals that Gotouda and Murase are one and the same person. But as the retrial appeal hits a wall, Nobara resolves to take matters into her own hands. She confronts Gotouda, but Yuuwa shows up and...
What vengeance will Nobara ultimately wreak upon her twin's murderer? Sate your curiosity and see how Nobara regains her life in the last My Life.
As noted above, m&c! rolls out Spray King 1 by Mikuni Shin and the continuation to Tony Wong's Dewa Iblis Awan Api—Dewa Iblis Awan Api II—the premiere cover of which is ab-so-lute-ly terrifying! (features the Devil Mask that stars in the
Misteri Topeng Iblis subtitle). I preview the Graffiti! Spray King after the cut.

Spray King © Mikuni Shin
A mysterious young man wanders the city at night, busting crime and leaving behind huge, beautiful graffiti as his calling card. He is the Spray King!
Who's the boy behind the can? That's what Kuroda Miu, part-time news hound, wants to find out for the weekly magazine she works for. Her camera zooms in on Tanaka Torateru, a new student at the art academy Kuroda attends, but could he really be the Spray King? He's not that skilled in art. [Additions from Baka-Updates Manga's Spray King description]
Other Mikuni Shin manga
Currently, Mikuni Shin only has the four-volume Spray King in his backlist. Baka-Updates Manga sez that he formerly worked as Mashima Hiro's assistant on Rave, Monster Soul, Fairy Tail and Monster Hunter Orage.
Hye Bin thanks Ji Hye for saving Ryul, but her gratitude, and intimacy with Ryul, only ignite Ji Hye's jealousy. Later, the truth about Ji Hye's real identity comes out. She's actually Yeon Ji, Ji Hye's twin who supposedly died a long time ago. Because of her love for Ryul, Yeon Ji chose to save him, rather than Hye Bin.
As I tweeted to Lina-chan, I really couldn't care less about Ryul, what moar twisted Ji Hye/Yeon Ji. *yawns*
"I'm grateful that I like you, Shinpei."
Chinatsu has wanted to admit that to Shinpei for so long, but preventus interruptus foil her at every turn. Ahh, love is such a hassle!
The Cherry is Everywhere finale also includes an extra story (
Cherry na Bokura bangai-hen).
