Kahoko struggles to hone her abilities even with a magical violin stripped of its powers. But no magical help means Kahoko's music sounds different, much to everyone's consternation. Hihara, too, is flustered but that has more to do with his feelings for Kahoko.
With the final selection looming,
what can Hihara do to stabilise his feelings for Kahoko before they completely ruin his performance? asks Chuang Yi's La Corda d'Oro Vol.9 blurb, which adds that Kaho-chan and Hihara-senpai aren't the only ones in trouble:

Nakayoshi Gress! 02/2012 ♥ The Great Detective Kiyoshiro Yumemizu returns
© Moro Orie/Kodansha
Published in Indonesia
as Angel or Devil?
by Elex Media
As noted, The Great Detective Kiyoshiro Yumemizu (Meitantei Yumemizu Kiyoshirou Jiken Note) resumes this issue with Vol. 11
Boneka Tak Bisa Tertawa: the Professor and the triplets strike again, this time in Marine village. Moro Orie's Angel or Devil? (Kamika Akumaka), however, lands the front cover as it concludes this issue. Kizuna, now aware of her past, tries to find happiness.
Meanwhile, in Moro Orie's other (ongoing) shoujo manga, What Makes Two of Us (Futari no Himitsu.) chapter 2, Kiki swaps bodies with Igarashi Teppei! How will she cope with her new life as a boy—Takumi's best friend even—when she's still crushing on Takumi?
The other Nakayoshi pals that appear in Issue 02/2012, according to the cover:
- Your Melody (Kimi no Neiro) by Fukushima Haruka: Cerita 11
Changed Girl: Tsubakiya dismisses Neiro as nothing more than a flirt, dispensing lurve to all and sundry.
- Arisa by Ando Natsumi: Chapter 31
Waktu yang Hilang: Arisa still doesn't remember anything; Tsubasa tries to help by revealing their shared memories.
- A Gift For My Teacher (Senseini Ageru.) by Yamada Daisy: [Finale]: A star named Azami shines in the sky. A beautiful star symbolizing the love of its discoverer. Azami guesses the one who discovered it is...
- Love is the Devil (Amai Akuma ga Warau) by Toriumi Pedoro: Devil & Lesson 9
I could not tease the devil who tempting [sic] me: If there's love, jealousy must follow, mustn't it? Haruru reveals she's engaged; how will Isshin react?
- Little Shugo Chara! (Shugo Chara-chan!) by PEACH-PIT & Mizushima Napthalene: Who is the enemy of summer?
- SGC! Survival Game Club! (Sabagebu!) by Matsumoto Hidekichi: Want to know what the heck is the BB bullet? The ammo so difficult to make, it requires high-level patience?
- Hell Girl Return (Jigoku Shoujo Return) by Eto Miyuki & Jigoku Shojo Project: A kind football coach suddenly commits suicide by drowning in the river? Impossible! Someone must've set him up...
Toyama Ema's XX Me! (Watashi ni xx Shinasai!!) doesn't appear on the front cover, but this NakaGress! promises for Mission.27
Shigure's Resolve: It looks like Shigure has gotten SERIOUS with Yukina. (Kyaaaa~!)
Kami Kami Kaeshi, also by Toyama Ema, doesn't show up on the cover line-up either, but I speculate its absence is pro tem, similar to how Animal Official (1-nen 5-kumi Ikimono Gakari) by Haruka Fukushima, missed the roll call for past issues because of hiccups on the Japan side. (Both Kami Kami Kaeshi and 1-nen 5-kumi Ikimono Gakari are still ongoing.)
