[Serialized in Sunday GX]
Published in Indonesia as Dolls of God by Elex Media/Level Comics
Settle for the shopping MinimaList for now. I'll be back later with the rest of the Level artwork and NikBabble™ are heeeere :D
In Dolls of God 5, Koshiro and Kirio return to Tokyo to continue the manhunt for Aki, while Hirashiro dispatches another Hyuga Seki to further his agenda. The new Seki Mahiru is totally in lurve with
Kyohei-sama but that doesn't stop her from attacking other Seki, Utao included...
Dolls of God 5 compiles chapters (Seg.) 25 through 30:
Girl Meets Boy (I and II),
Beautiful Girl's Confusion,
Aki vs Mahiru, and Then... and the
Dalam Keputusasaan: Kisah di Balik Layar extra. (Yes, these ARE Level's titles.)
Sowwy, Mamoru-sama, for not leading with you and your *cough*bride*cough*. I just had to play wif Aki (and Kyohei) first :D Imma preview Until Death Do Us Part 9 (top DO WANT! this sked) nau~
Wiseman's tactics succeed where others failed. Defeat, guilt and self-directed anger drive Mamoru to distance himself from the Element Network. Precog Loli Haruka, however, is not about to let Mamoru go. What fate awaits our Till Death Do Us Parters after they exit Network?
Until Death Do Us Part 9:
Shadow collects Parts 66–74. There's the usual full-color inserts, the first featuring Haruka begging Mamoru to kill her. (Oops, did I say that out loud? :P)
Moar previews—with or without SPOIL—after the release list.
New Level titles [Just added]

Emiri and President Omaha switch bodies! Kogarasumaru, meanwhile, enters the second round battle against Highway Circus. As all this is going down, Sora turns to western Japan to get rid of Trident.
Tachibana Kyosuke, Ryoko's supposedly deceased boyfriend, is apparently alive. What led to his faking death? More importantly, who is the enemy and what kind of danger are Eiji and Ryoko rushing into?
We know that the first Psychometrist Eiji series ends with volume 25, but what we don't know yet is whether Level *pokes Level* has licensed the Psychometrer Eiji seinen sequel — Psychometrer (two volumes per 2011.11.04, ongoing serialization in Young Magazine).
