ASUKA Issue 05/12 and Uraboku Story 48 Snippets


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.

What’s in this issue, new volume releases and readers’ choice of the top 3 best shot ranking from April (which I take to mean best shot of pairings or couples, & yay for Yakumo ranking 1st, oh LoL @ Samurai Drive coming 3rd – bromance is strong indeed)

And the rest of this issue’s selections (picspam ahead)!

Hana wa Sakura yori mo Hana no Gotoku
– Shoujo manga fans would be happy with the colour spreads you get  in this chapter

Yoshiwara Hana Oboro
– I wonder if the manga is nearing an end now that Hana got her hair pin back and that cliffhanger, will she find out the real reason she ended up back in the past and of her link with Rennosuke? I supposed she is meant to discover her family secret and that’s why she’s transported back to where her descendants originated from.

Momogumi Plus Senki
– Momo died and when to heaven but found out the folks there didn’t want him yet and kick him back down to the living world again cos he still has some unfinished business to deal with…. yup, that’s the chapter in a nutshell.

Shinrei Tantei Yakumo
– Waaa, Ishii stay away from that woman. She’s toxic and is a probable villain. Look, she’s attempting to hypnotize you…oh no! It’s too late…me thinks, he’s been had.  Well Gotou seems to care for his underling more than he dared to admit but nothing beats his dynamics with Yakumo, who is almost always spot on in guessing Gotou’s thoughts.

Samurai Drive
– So the gang decides to go and break out Kokonoe who is imprisoned by his elder brother.
Photobucket

Kyokutou Prison
– A terrible death (homicide) has occurred and the kids are now suspicious of one another. That made it likely that another murder will happen sooner rather than later as one of the panicky inmates will act rashly to eliminate any potential threats. Infighting has just begun. Ah… only one will remain standing at the end? Who will be the master manipulator?

Kamitoki no Resist
– Shrine guardians battle with demons… eh, where have I read such plot before?
Photobucket

Messiah ~Seiiki Ishuu
– The female assassin is actually a very pretty bishounen…he’s a trap. Snarky way of sneaking into the domain of the Messiah although he failed by being captured and wounded.
Photobucket

Haikei Enma-sama
– 2nd last chapter.
Photobucket

Rhythmic Code
– Like Heikei Enma-sama, this one is also the 2nd last chapter.

  1. Do you happen to know when or where Chapters 48-54 will be scanned and translated? I’d like to continue reading but the next available chapter I’m finding online is Chapter 55. I don’t want to read on with such a huge gap in the story. Any help is appreciated.
