Nube 29, Crazy Girl Shin Bia 15, Hai, Miiko! Cilik by Ono Eriko (m&c! manga and manhwa out nau~) [UPDATED]

Street date: 11 July 2012
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

Guru Ahli Roh Nube 29 (m&c!)

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!?

Yup, m&c! only has that surprised Nube Masa Latihan?! yelp as its Nube 29 blurb (taken from the Jigoku Sensei Nube volume 29 title Nube ~Shugyou Jidai!? no Maki).

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The m&c! editor enthuses over the previously unpublished Hai Miiko!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.

Dem 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.

A new Hwang MiRee manhwaYou Are My Everything—also premieres this street date, but you already know what I think of this debut (up ↑ there). So look for the preview after the jump (down ↓ there).

New m&c! titles – continued
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.)

At any rate, there are yummier HMR manhwa out there, more worth your investment. (I'm looking at you, Crazy Girl Shin Bia. [See ↓ below for Crazy Girl Shin Bia 15's preview.])

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.

Featured ongoing series
