Q: Who do we have on May’s cover of Asuka?
A: Shurei and her harem from Saiunkoku Monogatari
It’s May already and isn’t it appropriate to share snippets from the May Issue of ASUKA. It’s later than expected and I do have the current June Issue in hand as well although I won’t post teasers from that copy yet. With that said, there’s no new Uraboku chapter in the June issue. That means the Uraboku fandom will have to wait longer for the next chapter. It is one of the reason why I forgo a quick Uraboku spoiler post earlier on. I’m not even sure if there’s a new chapter in the coming July issue. Anyway, those of you looking forward to Story 48 shall be pleased because I’m posting the chapter teasers right here.
tBPII is back with another mag post filled with tidbits from the April edition of 月刊Asuka.
APRIL COVER FEAT. YAKUMO OF SHINREI TANTEI YAKUMO
What do we have in store from this issue? Plenty it seems. See if you are following any of the manga titles of interest that are currently running in Asuka and want to see the latest chapter snippets or perhaps you might like some of the newer ones and want a glimpse or two of what they are.

月刊 ASUKA JULY ISSUE 2011
COVER ILLUSTRATION: SHINREI TANTEI YAKUMO (ODA SUZUKA)
I know that I’d skipped doing the June snippets but that was intentional due to my busy schedule. Some peeps have been constantly checking to see if I would post teasers from the July issue after the previous miss. Well, fret not cos the Asuka snippets are back. The teasers aren’t quite teasers any more but nonetheless, I’m sure not everyone has gotten wind of the latest chapters. Therefore, these will definitely cheer y’all up.

• Gatsu ni tsubame to migi ni kage **new

Like I said in my previous Asuka post not too long ago, I’ll post the Special Calendar that came with the Jan 2011 issue separately. Well, lo and behold, here it is. The calendar is in A4-size booklet form so you see all the folds between the pages. I don’t have the frekking time to clean them and make them nice ‘n’ all. It is just fortunate that I managed to scan them amidst chaotic RL activities. All of the images were covers that had appeared in ASUKA throughout 2010. So, you would have seen them before if you’re a regular reader of the manga mag or fan of any of the manga titles featured in the Calendar. Right then, who can tell me which manga are the images from and which one is your favourite cover? Should be bleepin’ easy right?
Let’s move along to the Calendar proper… Enjoy!
Manga Title: Shinrei Tantei Yakumo – Psychic Detective Yakumo – 心靈偵探八雲
Based on a novel by Kaminaga Manabu, Shinrei Tantei Yakumo (aka Psychic Detective Yakumo) follows the story of a university student named Yakumo Saito, who was born with two different colored eyes. His red left eye gave him a special ability to see ghosts and spirits. He believes ghosts and spirits are bound to earth because of a certain ’cause’ and simply by eliminating that ’cause’ will those spirits rest in peace. He uses his unusual ability to solve murder cases which is how he met Ozawa Haruka, a female student who asked for his help. Together, they embark on their investigation which will lead them down a path of many more strange incidences.
