I Love You, Suzuki Kun!! 13 and In Our World (Tiga Lancar Comic)

Suki desu, Suzuki-kun!! © Ikeyamada Go/Shogakukan [First serialized in Sho-Comi] · Bokura no Sekai de © Mamura Mio Shogakukan [First serialized in Sho-Comi]. Published in Indonesia as I Love You, Suzuki kun!! and In Our World by PT Tiga Lancar Semesta/Tiga Lancar Comic (3L)

Only one more I Love You, Suzuki kun!! before the volume 15 finale (Edit: Baka-Updates Manga indicates Status in Country of Origin is 15 Volumes (Ongoing).).

In this latest tankou,

Sayaka has regained her memories, but unable to forgive herself for having replaced Hikaru with another, she decides to break up with Takumi and go solo. Unfortunately, Sayaka also chooses to drive away Hikaru — by telling him that she's going to marry Takumi.

Big Mis(understanding) this late in the Suki desu Suzuki-kun!! day?? Hoo-boy... (You can tell I loathe this Just talk to each other already!! trope.) I hope Shinobu × Chihiro are faring better...

Per earlier volumes, I Love You, Suzuki kun!! volume 13 is rated for [DEWASA] or Mature audiences.

New 3L manga
In Our World by Mamura Mio

Kokoro wouldn't have gotten all buddy-buddy with Haru—their first meeting was the worst—if not for their fangirl(boy)ing the same band. So now, they hang out after school.

One day, Kokoro and Haru run into the band's lead singer, Kai. Seeing Kokoro weep over the thrill of having met their idol, Haru immediately drags her away. The uptake of Haru going Alpha mode, ON!: Kokoro's heart starts pounding...?!

Teen-friendly Friends Become Lovers, Jealousy, Love Triangle, Music Bokura no Sekai de (In Our World's original title) also contains a couple of one-shots, Bokutachi no shunkan (Our Moment) and Ano Koro no watashitachi wa (Us, those days) [*NOT 3L's titles]. They all feature absolutely DELISH eyecandy, per Mamura Mio-sensei normal. (Watch out for those deadly grins :D) [Continued...]
