Mag Updates: Asuka Issue 04/12


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.


FEATURED ONE SHOT: BARONG by SAHO

Personally, I like the one shot manga that’s written and illustrated by Saho (佐保). It’s called ‘Barong‘. Saho’s work is reminiscent of Aoto Takane, especially her artstyle which I almost mistook for Aoto.  It made me wonder if they are the same person.😛

FEATURED NEW MANGA: KYOKUTOU PRISON by NOKIYA

Nokiya is also back with her new manga titled ‘Kyokutou Prison‘ a.k.a ‘Far East Prison‘ in English. If you’re wondering who Nokiya is, she illustrated and adapted Kaminaga Manabu‘s work ‘The Conductor‘ very recently.

You’ll (fans of The Conductor) probably noticed that the character art in her new manga is very similar to the ones in ‘The Conductor’ albeit the characters are high-schoolers. Initially, I was taken aback and thought that ‘Kyokutou Prison’ is a prequel to ‘The Conductor’ just by looking at the cover art.😆

Chapter Preview:

Anyway, the premise looked interesting (although it may seemed to have borrowed a wee bit of inspiration from the abominable *The Hunger Games*, what with troubled teens (12 nos) being kept isolated together in one place, distrust/discord ever mounting and unsavoury happenings begin to unravel).  The 1st chapter debut with 71 pages…that’s like 2-in-1 chapters. Definitely *pimped* in my book.

SERIES ENDING

O.G.A

Manga series ending in this issue are ‘Migawari Hakushakou no Bouken‘, ‘O.G.A‘ and ‘Ouji wa Tadaima Dekasegi Chuu‘. Out of these three, I am going to miss ‘Migawari’ which I’ve taken a liking to since I started reading it a little over a year ago. The novels are still ongoing and the manga adaptation ended where Vol.3 of the novel ends. I guess I’ll have to make do with the misadventures of the fake count by following the novels.😛

On to the rest of it.

  1. Nokiya-sensei’s new series really caught my attention xDD It looks interesting!! I really like Conductor a lot too, although it ended too soon. Oh, um. I’m really curious about the character’s names (Kyokutou Prison), would it possible to tell me their names xD? Especially the purple/blue haired guy, and the pink haired girl.
