Mag Updates: Asuka Issue 05/11


Snippets round-up from Asuka May edition!

This is a rather belated update but here’s my Asuka May issue snippets roundup. I skipped Uraboku because I already posted the chapter teasers up some weeks back. There are two new manga titles appearing in the May publication. That’s ‘Messiah’ and ‘Ouji wa Tadaima Dekasegi Chuu’. Messiah’s 1st chapter looks interestingly dark where as ‘Ouji’ has a comedy appeal. Best chapter progression goes to ‘The Conductor’. It just keeps getting better and better. After all the suspense build-up, a tragic consequence finally happens. Volume 3 is out this month i.e. Apr-26. Interested peeps can order it here.  There’s this other special omake booklet that came with this issue that I’ll probably put up on my LJ site. Be sure to check that out later. What do you know, time flies by so quickly that we are approaching the end of April and Asuka’s June issue is already on its way to me. Hopefully, I won’t be this late with an update of the new issue. Till then, enjoy!

-The Conductor-

~Chapter 10: After all that psychological traumatic build-up, you know something horrid is going to happen. And it did, we have our first casualty.

I never really like Tamaki’s character. He’s a highly strung, overzealous guy that Aki don’t deserve to be with.

Ah Matsu, are you really who you say you are?

-Ouji wa Tadaima Dekasegi Chuu-

~Brand new manga from Iwaki Hiromi debut with its first chapter in Asuka. It’s actually adapted from the novel of the same name, about a pauper prince xD who’s trying to make ends meet…by taking odd jobs…muahaha… like cross-dressing as a girl.

-Samurai Drive-

~Gets a colour page and 3rd volume release

-Barajou no Kiss-

Finally, a colour page without the ditz heroine but I guess, most Barajou fans won’t care about that. It’s the ‘kissu’ that fans are more interested in. Oh well, you get more than one ‘kissu’ scene in this chapter. I reckon Barajou fans are pleased with their chosen pairing. Me, I couldn’t care less.😛

  1. I don’t like Kaede, but cause it’s gonna be the “happy end”. Anis will end up with Kaede and everybody will live happily ever after… I wish she would fall for Mutsuki, he’s much more cute! ( his kind of cuteness😀 ) I love Mutsuki from the 4 knights, he has a special aura😛

  2. Ah… another chapter of Ayahatori has come out, but I haven’t found even the first chp on the net to read… damn it! and the conductor too…. I’ve just found 2 first chp on mangafox, nothing more. I’ve almost forgotten the characters!!!
    Messiah?! the name rings a bell somewhere…but can’t remember anything, maybe it’s just Dejavu!!
    Yakumo… so cool and cute at the same time!
    I didn’t know Black Robinia was a manga! I’ve got a PSP game, but due to some update problems can’t play it now, so don’t know what’s it about. is it worth reading?! what’s it about?
    btw, isn’t that Shurei from Saiunkoku in the middle of the last pic? the story in the anime was left unfinished somehow, wanna know what’ll happen in the end soooo much.
    WOW… I talked too much today!!! probably because I’m in a bad mood due to many reasons.
    anyway thanx a lot for sharing. you’re the best!

  3. Besides UraBoku, Barajou is the next manga that interests me the most in Asuka, so even if it’s not the same for you.. Thanks for sharing XP I’d be interested also in Akaki Tsuki no Meguru Koro, too bad I can’t find any scan online T_T But I don’t like the cover of the first volume.. the heroine seems too much abused:/
