Settle for MinimaList for nau~ Will be back later with deets AKA NikBabble™ and artwork. Done, albeit mucho, mucho delayed :P
Takemichi is suddenly promoted to the elite Samurai Force. With no military background whatsoever, can he survive?
Methinks we need a bit more background to Samurai Force than m&c!'s tease: Japan, mid-21st century: the government creates a "samurai" unit to challenge the dominance of the Shahel, immortality gene- and biohazard hybrids ravaging the North and South American continents. The Samurai Force deploys nano-machine-enhanced soldiers to combat the menace that wipes out even the United States. Tsukahara Takemichi finds himself the newest member of the 1st platoon. [Adapted from Baka-Updates Manga's Eleven Soul description]
Gene Splice × Uniforms Samurai Force debuted in 2006 in Comic Blade, and the shounen mecha action continues (to serialize) in that mangazine. The first tankou was compiled by August 2006, the latest volume 11 streeted as of 8 October.
Samurai Force represents the second Todono Seiuchiroh manga m&c! has licensed; the first, Innocent Blade Unveil, launched last September. For other Todono Seiuchiroh manga « click that link. I don't think any sea change swamped Todono-sensei's backlist since I last wrote about it.
Rest of the newbs below the release list. Up here, up next: top DO WANT!
Aizen's ingress into battle pressures Gotei 13 to join forces with the Visored, if only for a shot at taking down the traitor. But before they can get to Aizen, they must first crush Barragan and Starrk, the Primera Espada.
Easier sed than done :P
Volume 43's front cover is Segunda Espada Baraggan Louisenbairn, so don't blame me for not leading with it/him, not when—Takemichi?—is too terribly bishie. Neway, Bleach 43: Kingdom of Hollows collates chapters 368 to 377:
The Fearless Child,
Spit On Your Own God,
神の視座にて 命を論ず or
Debating Life From the Throne of God,
Kingdom of Hollows,
The Metal Cudgel Flinger,
Wolves Ain't Howl Alone,
Gray Wolf, Red Blood, Black Clothing, White Bone,
EXecution, EXtinction 2 and
Shout at the Dark. [Obviously NOT m&c!'s chapter titles] The latest Bleach chapter bound in tankou is 459,
Death & Strawberry 2, compiled in Volume 52: End of Bond (Japan release: 2011.10.04).
