Snippets from Gekkan ASUKA Issue 01/2011
Barajou no Kiss gets the cover spot of the 2011 Jan Issue
Two things excite me from this issue of ASUKA; the return of ‘Trinity Blood ~rubor‘ and new manga adaptation of ‘Tale of Genji‘ aka ‘Genji Monogatari‘. Miyagi Tooko’s art for Genji is gorgeous. I look forward to seeing more of the adaptation in the coming issues. Although, ‘Barajou no Kiss‘ dominates the cover again, it is ‘Shinrei Tantei Yakumo‘ that steals the chapter spotlight simply because I love the development between Yakumo and Haruka. There is also an interesting revelation about Matsuzaki’s past in ‘The Conductor‘. Seems that every one of the characters have got a dark history and Matsuzaki certainly had a most horrible experience. I love how things keep unraveling in this series. It is such a strong contender for my pick as this year’s top new serialization. On another note, there’s a freebie that came with the Jan issue of Asuka and it’s a special 2011 calendar. I intend to post the images separately, of course. So keep a lookout for it.

Let’s not forget the featured ONE SHOTS
Welcome Back ‘Trinity Blood ~Robor‘
– The previous chapter ends with a cliffhanger many moons ago and went on a long hiatus after that. Glad to see it back on with colour pages too. But where is my Abel?
