Naruto 57 and D.Gray-man 22 on teh simplified Chinese side (Chuang Yi 20 September 2011 manga) [UPDATED]

Apparently the English Metal Fight Beyblade vol 5 didn't street as planned (was moved to 18 October). At any rate, Naruto 57 and D.Gray-man aren't the only simplified Chinese manga (and manhwa) Chuang Yi lined up for 20 September. Defense Devil #9 (penultimate tankou) and 吸血鬼骑士 (Vampire Knight) #14—both postponed from 9.05—also street, as does 魔帝 (Majeh) #36.

Simplified Chinese manga and manhwa
The Japanese Defense Devil 9 and D.Gray-man 22 streeted last June, as did Vampire Knight 14. Naruto is most recent of the bunch, volume 57 having streeted in August. Meanwhile, Majeh volume 36 came out in September last year. Whatever their original street dates, Chuang Yi's fairly up to speed, with only the Korean Majeh far out in front (volume 39 released 9 September 2011).

If you can read Chinese, and I assume you can if you're buying the simplified Chinese editions, Chuang Yi's synopses —

Here's Wiki's summary of Naruto 57, for my own reference:

Upon learning of the ongoing war, Naruto and Killer Bee escape from their hideout to support their comrades. However, they are intercepted by the Raikage and Tsunade who insist on leaving the tailed beasts' hosts. While Tsunade decides to rely on Naruto's strength, Bee and Naruto convince the Raikage to let them go.

Naruto 57: Naruto senjō e...!! ( (Naruto Heads to the Battlefield...!!) compiles chapters 535 through 544: Iruka's Persuasion, Naruto Heads to the Battlefield...!! Night Falls...!! Cross-Examination, Night of Blood...!! Madara's Strategy!! Raikage vs. Naruto!? The Unknown Story of the Strongest Tag Team!! Unforgotten Words and Two Suns!! [*NOT Chuang Yi's titles]

For my own edification, excerpting here Wiki's not quite equivalent D.Gray-man 22 English summary:

Alma and Kanda arrive in Mater with the former dying. Allen tries to save Tokusa, but he is bound by Link. He is then held captive at the Black Order for his previous actions. A Cardinal of the Black Order attacks Allen, and accidentally reveals that he was the one behind Cross's disappearance. Road and Tyki break into the Black Order to rescue Allen, and Tyki reveals that the Cardinal is a sentient Innocence known as an Apocryphos. Allen, Road and Tyki escape the prison, and Allen is officially classified as a Noah by the Order. Tyki leaves Allen and an unconscious Road so he can fight the Apocryphos. Allen creates his last Ark gate to leave the Black Order behind forever, disappearing after telling Lenalee he will always remain an Exorcist.

D.Gray-man 22 collects into tankou chapters 200 through 205: Seeds of Destruction, Sinner in Despair, A Changing World, Fate - Consciousness, Premonitions of Separation and My Home. [Still NOT Chuang Yi's titles]
