Slam Dunk Deluxe 1 by Inoue Takehiko, Ouran High School Host Club 9, Library War Love & War 5 (Elex Media 2 November 2011 manga) [UPDATED]

That there new Slam Dunk be the Jump Comics Deluxe kanzenban, yo.
(MinimaList again—not to mention delayed—because my 'pooter Izzy-sama's on strike, wants more holidays :P Update: Not anymore but Izzy-sama's not budging on the holiday thing. The prospect of bargaining talks stalling looms.)

Slam Dunk Deluxe 1 (Elex Media)

Slam Dunk © Inoue Takehiko/Shueisha [First serialized in Weekly Shonen Jump]
Published in Indonesia by Elex Media

I'm pretty sure everyone knows Hanamichi's story, but let's refresh:

Introduction to one Akagi Haruko fires Sakuragi Hanamichi's desire to join the school basketball club. (Because, you know, she's crazy-mad about the game, and he wants to impress her.) But another Akagi—the captain of Shohoku's basketball team and Haruko's big bro—slams the gym door in Sakuragi's face. OK, so it's figuratively, but Akagi still detests Sakuragi, so much so that he (not-so fondly) nicknames the latter ‘Gorilla’.

To nab the admiration of his dream girl, Sakuragi does absolutely everything to get accepted into the Shohoku team. Does he succeed?

Is it over the top to say that Inoue Takehiko's shounen classic wrote the book on Basketball, Hot-Headed Male Lead, Friendship, Character Growth, Romantic Subplot, Teamwork, Tournament, Unrequited Love? I don't think so. Elex's Deluxe version—‘Deluxe’ like the bunko Topeng Kaca, Here is Greenwood and all the Hikawa Kyoko Fluff and not ‘Premiere’ like Kungfu Boy—is the Indonesian counterpart to the Jump Comics Deluxe kanzenban. So now you know. And if you didn't amass the 31 Slam Dunk tanks Elex published way back when, here's your collection chance.

Other Inoue Takehiko—you don't really need me to review Inoue Take-sensei's backlist, do you? (But just in case someone does, he produced two more basketball mangaBuzzer Beater and Real, the latter still an ongoing—after Slam Dunk, plus his own (award-winning) take on Yoshikawa Eiji's epic Musashi, Vagabond. Wiki sez his manga debut was Kaede Purple, the one-shot Slam Dunk alternate story that first appeared in 1988 in Weekly Shonen Jump. [Before that he reportedly worked as Hojo Tsukasa's assistant on City Hunter.] Inoue Takehiko's tankou debut was the shounen gender bender mystery Chameleon Jail, written by Watanabe Kazuhiko.)

As for the other newb this 11.02 release —

Detektif Conan Movie 1: The Time Bombed Skyscraper - First
By Aoyama Gosho

Elex has this blurb—Di penjuru kota Beika, terjadi kasus pembakaran dan pengeboman. Tujuannya masih misterius, tapi si pelaku ingin menantang Shinichi Kudo. Untuk mencegah jatuhnya korban, Conan harus bergegas!—but I like IMDb's succinct summary better:

The detective genius Conan must solve a series of bombings or his true love will die!

[From IMDb's Detective Conan: Skyscraper on a Timer entry]

Don't call me out on my use of the movie summary. The manga is based on the feature film after all ^^v

More previews (my adapts ^^) after the release list.

Kosei and Kako enroll into Horiokoshi senior high, the school for celebs. Kako is delighted at the attention Kosei's getting, but — what's this? Top idol Tomoe is their senpai? Rival?? Are Kako's producer skills enough to propel Kosei to even brighter stardom? Or at least, up to overtaking Tomoe-senpai in popularity?

Her Idol Boy 2 collects Step (Produce) 5-8 and a Kosei × Kako as kids extra ^^

La Corda D'Oro vol 8 of 17
By Kure Yuki

I commend Elex on its La Corda D'Oro 8 blurb, so excerpting the original Indonesian first.

Di tengah keadaannya yang sekarat, biola ajaib pemberian Lily tetap setia memainkan lagu terakhirnya bagi Kahoko. Namun, setelah lagu perpisahan usai, biola yang telah mengenalkan musik kepada Kahoko itu, akhirnya hancur menjadi serpihan-serpihan debu, meninggalkan hanya seutas senar dalam genggaman Hino. Akankah ada biola ajaib baru bagi Kahoko?

Here's my spin on the above:

The last vestiges of magic in Kahoko's violin peters out, but not before Kahoko can play her Third Selection piece. The faithful violin itself disappears, leaving only a string in Kahoko's despondent clasp. Will there be another magical violin for Kahoko?

Why I laud Elex' summary can be seen from these two other blurbs of the English edition, so much wub, they radiate s:

Chuang Yi's La Corda d Oro Vol.8 synopsis:

On the very day of the third selection, Lili reveals to Kahoko that the magic on her violin is about to fade away. Nevertheless, in an effort to show how serious she is about the concours, she bravely takes the stage, determined to finish what may very well be her swan song. Without the magic violin to guide her playing from now on, how will Kahoko continue to pursue her newfound interest in music? And how did she end up going on a double date with Tsukimori AND Tsuchiura?

VIZ Media's La Corda d'Oro, Vol. 8 synopsis:

Music can last forever—but magic can't. In the middle of the Third Selection, Kahoko's magical violin finally loses its power. Can Kahoko complete her performance on heart alone? Will she be able to pursue her newfound love of music any further? With such weighty matters on her mind, Kahoko is blindsided by a threat no enchantment could have predicted: Ryotaro's ex-girlfriend, who shows up determined to win back the hunky pianist's heart!

The final Kiniro no Corda tankou—volume 17—released July 2011 in Japan. That the Elex edition is less than halfway is still a small mercy for which we should be thankful.

Library War Love & War vol 5 of 8+
By Yumi Kiiro & Arikawa Hiro

A girl with difficulty hearing likes Komaki, but can't come clean about her feelings. But because of her, the Media Betterment Committee arrests Komaki on grounds of discrimation against those with disabilities.

Library War Love & War volume 5 compiles Index.20 through 23 and throws in two WAFF bonus Special Stories and an Extra Story that will. Blow. You. Away.

Eight Toshokan Sensou: Love & War tankou have been released in Japan as of 5 September 2011.

Ouran High School Host Club vol 9 of 18
By Hatori Bisco

Ouran plays host to a pretty princess from the kingdom of Morale, and in a heartbeat, Tamaki goes down on his knees before her. He panders to her whimsies so much that ignores Haruhi?! Kyoka is quick to share that the princess resembles Tamaki's mom, but could this explain Tamaki's smitten-ness?

Aside from the selfish princess, we get Tamaki's first meeting with Hikaru and Kaoru and the arrival of Hunny's little brother Chika in Ouran High School Host Club 8, which compiles chapters 37 to 40, and an Extra Episode: The Host Club's Operation for Modest Happiness and Love Egoist 4: Love or Dream? [*NOT Elex' titles]

I'm sure you know that Ouran Koukou Host Club's finale volume 18 released in Japan last April, but did you know that Chuang Yi's Ouran High Host Club, Vol. 18 released 5 September sold out within days? Sasuga Host Club...

Other 2 November 2011 highlights
