Albeit this m&c! list isn't the NikBabble™ version, warning that I rate volume 1 of Hwang MiRee's You Are My Everything a 6 of 10, or C+, which translates to a Borrow first if you're that intrigued. :p
Update: ‘Upgraded’ to NikBabble™ version
Jigoku Sensei Nube © by Makura Shou, Okano Takeshi/Shueisha [First serialized in Weekly Shonen Jump]. Published in Indonesia as Guru Ahli Roh Nube by Gramedia/m&c!
Nube's Training Period!?
To lessen the pain of a one-liner after a wait of one year and eight months, lemme add the titles of Nube chapters 248 to 256 from Wikipedia:
The Trial Jar,
Nube's Training Period!?,
I Want To Call You ‘Big Brother’!,
Hiroshi, Become Micro!?,
Spirit Charmer • Yan Kailun,
Oni no Te, Fury!!,
Clash!! Oni no Te vs. Oni no Te!!,
The Wielder of the Oni no Te and
The Youkai Circus is Here!
New m&c! titles: a new Hai, Miiko!
The m&c! editor enthuses over the previously unpublished Hai Miiko! story in the latest Hai Miiko! Cilik, actually the Miiko Selection Wide Ichinensei! Miiko-chan published by Shogakukan under Ciao Comics Special in March 2012.
packed with 30 full-color pages and the chance to see Miiko's first day in elementary school ought to compensate for the wait-till-dunno-when Hai, Miiko! volume 25.

You Are My Everything vol 1 of 9
By Hwang MiRee
Yo Jin Hong dreams of experiencing romantic love, like the heroines in girls' comics. She just might get a chance to live out her own soonjung manhwa if she can nab bishie En Bakha.
As noted at the top of the post, this latest Hwang MiRee offering only rates a 6 of 10 (C+). (And since I wrote this post waaay after I read the first volume, I find...I can't remember anything about You Are My Everything, let alone why I gave it that grade. O.o. That's how ‘memorable’ its premise and charas are.)
You Are My Everything, check. Crazy Girl Shin Bia, check. m&c! also published Hwang MiRee's Crab Kiss, Idol Shopping, My Own Princess and Ugly Duckling Become Swan. Elex, meanwhile, released Legend of Nereid, Sexy Simpleton and New Sexy Simpleton and Want you.
Shin Bia is shocked to hear that her memory will be erased, but beyond that, heart-broken when she learns Crown Prince Yoo Baek himself gave the order. Meanwhile, Shin Bia's handmaiden Ga Yun hasn't given up attempting to murder Shin Bia. She poisons an arrow and shoots it at...the Crown Prince?!
