Dragon's Fiancé 1 (Elex Media)

Ryuu no Hanawazurai © Kusakawa Nari/Hakusensha
[First serialized in LaLa]
Published in Indonesia as Dragon's Fiancé by Elex Media

Shakuya got into "marriage politics" early, but almost as soon as, lost her fiancé Lushin Rakka to a sandstorm. Now Shakuya is engaged to Kwan and she's not complainin' except...Lushin chooses this time to reappear to wrest back his fiancée!

That's Elex's summary for Kusakawa Nari's Dragon's Fiancé. Let me continue with the one I wrote when I reviewed Ryuu no Hanawazurai's serial debut in (now defunct) HanaLaLa mangazine:

The amnesiac Lushin succeeds in returning to his hometown, guided by the clue of the rose tattoo on his hand, a tattoo that marks him as the rightful fiancé of Shakuya—who bears the tattoo's magical twin on her right hand. Following his presumed death, Lushin's engagement to Shakuya was dissolved, his position replaced by Kwan who (unlike Lushin when he was younger) is apparently the only person capable of keeping his cool even when the power of Shakuya's emotions force her into dragon mode. Shakuya professes to like Kwan more; the five gentian tattoos on her left hand versus the one rose tattoo on her right for Lushin prove this (the more the tattoos, the greater the supposed affection Shakuya holds for the tattoo's "owner"). Her honesty, however, only spurs to Lushin confess that he likes Shakuya.

To settle the matter of two bridegrooms, the mate capable of making more of his tattoos bloom on Shakuya's hand after a year will become her husband.

If you're interested in what I had to say back then (especially about Shakuya's Lushin tattoos), go here »Dragon's Fiancé, A love triangle decided by who's got more tattoos.

Dragon's Fiancé debuted in the Indonesian Hana to Yume and LaLa in 2008. It serialized until chapter 26 (compiled in RyuuHana volume 5) and is prolly one of the most-missed HanaLaLa serials after the magazine was axed last December. The English Two Flowers for the Dragon fared not much better: CMX Manga managed only six volumes (of seven) before the company folded. But as Elex recommends collecting the manga because it doesn't span that many volumes, I think it's safe to say that Dragon's Fiancé won't suffer Two Flowers's fate and emerge like Tong Li's traditional Chinese version, the 龍族花印記 volume 7 of which released January 2010.

As for the Vietnamese Gia tộc rồngAki Shichiban-san? Care to help me out with the name of the publisher and how many volumes? Thank you~ :) »Edit: Seven volumes published by Kim Dong; Sankyuu, Aki Shichiban-san, for the info ^^

In case you missed it, it is Shakuya, not her fiancés; who is the titular dragon. Yup, whenever Shakuya gets upset, she turns into a fearsome dragon.

The other premiere generating a lot of buzz is —

Chunchu by Kim SungJae & Kim ByungJin

Chunchu 1 (Elex Media)

Chunchu © Kim SungJae
& Kim ByungJin/Haksan

In a barbarous age, twins are born, one of whom, prophecy says, is the devil's spawn. The parents abandon one child, hoping for his swift death, but the forsaken one lives.

What happens now to the devil's son Chunchu? Well... saved from death by his mother, banished by his people, hunted by his brother, and tortured by the demons within. Living and fighting with a low-born warrior tribe who can never trust him, Chunchu lives a life of blood and violence, every day a struggle to survive. But something mysterious lurks within his cold exterior, something that could be awakened by the touch of a woman. (Thanks, Dark Horse, for teh lowdown on this 2003 Manhwa of the Year awardee [from Chunchu: The Genocide Fiend, Vol. 1 blurb].

Aside from Award-Winning Work, Prophecy, Twins, Baka-Updates Manga users tag ChunChu with the additional Royal Family (that's a hint, gotta be!) and Ssaurabi that Wiki explains is a Modern Korean compound which literally means ‘a father who fights’. Intrigued yet? Let me just warn you though that Chunchu is 15 volumes long, and is on HIATUS.

Other debuts—another manhwa series, Be Good by Kim GiJung & Shin InChol that eludes even Gugel (save for hits pointing to Elex's version), the Crayon Shinchan World Heritage edu-manga Warisan Dunia and the Doraemon Movie Nobita Dalam Dunia Misteri mangafication—are previewed Below the Cut, as are top DO WANT! Ciuman Dewa (Kamisama Hajimemashita) volume 6, Ghost's Doctor (Youkai no Oishasan) 7 and the above-mentioned Kungfu Boy Premium 5.

Top DO WANT!

Ciuman Dewa 6 of 10+ by Suzuki Julietta

Before I get into Elex's Ciuman Dewa 6 blurb, some backgrounder c/o VIZ's Kamisama Kiss, Vol. 6 (street date: 6 December 2011):

Every year, kami from all over Japan gather in Izumo for a sort of divine convention. One of Mikage's friends comes to the shrine to invite Nanami to the retreat, but it turns out most of the other kami and Tomoe don't want her to go.

Picking up with Elex's version:

Just to attend the general assembly, Nanami has to compete against Kayako, the girl dubbed "The Living God from Kyoto." Not only must Nanami win the entry ticket, she also has to stop Kayako from filching Tomoe!

☆ Ghost's Doctor 7 of 15 by Sato Yuki

Delighted, also a little embarrassed, and then a volume 7 surprise! Even I'm amazed that I produced this many volumes. I'm very grateful to you all. But I still want to draw more ghosts. So, I will be overjoyed if you keep Kuro company a little while longer...
–Sato Yuki

Yup, Elex reverts to another short missive from the manga-ka for the back cover blurb of Ghost's Doctor 7. Sato Yuki-sensei should also be elated because Youkai no Oishasan continues to serialize in the Indonesian ShoMagz.

☆ Kungfu Boy 5 of 18 Premium by Maekawa Takeshi

Shiinake no Hitobito

[Monthly Shonen Magazine]

A female ninja goes on a mission to locate her master, little knowing that he refuses to have a shinobi retainer trailing him. What happens now?

Ninja Clan or Shiinake no Hitobito continues to serialize in Kodansha's Gekkan Shounen Magazine. Volume 1 (from where Shonen Magz 9's cover comes) was first released in Japan October 2009; volume 6, last April.

Baka-Updates users file Shiinake no Hitobito under Devoted Followers, Past Plays a Big Role, promise, in addition to the obvious Ninja. Promise apparently has something to do with Moon Village ninja Utsuki's It's been 7 years, master greeting to Todai-bound hero Haruhiko. [From Nigihana's Shiinake no Hitobito description, excerpted by Baka-Updates Manga]

Aside from the premiering Ninja Clan, these Absolutely Kewl ShoMagz manga also continue their serial runs:

Per above-mentioned, you can enjoy the adventures of middle-schooler Naoki and his daughter from the future Iroha again in Shonen Star 16 with the resumption of Magical Iroha, but Tessho gets top billing, with Wild Life nabbing the cover and main featured serial spot:

The mysterious death of the deer is finally explained, thanks to Tessho's hard work. Apparently, the deer suffered from copper poisoning. What will Tessho do to save the remaining wildlife?

Joining Fujisaki Masato's Wild Life and Inoue Kazurou's Magical Iroha are these Shonen Sunday stars:

Latest volume compilations
Wild Life 19 released 10 August, as did Dr. Koto 6 and Defense Devil 5. Detektif Conan 63, Kekkaishi 8 and My First Mr. Akuno 5 streeted last 15 August. Inuyasha 53 came out 13 July and still missing from the cover line-up Takkoku!!! 2 followed a week later (20 July).
