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)!
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.
– 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?
*Bleeps* Forgotten to add the freebies that came along with issue 5.
The is the first set of 5 mega size post card of Samurai Drive as illustrated by Fujiko Kosumi. The 2nd set of 5 will come with the June issue.
And that’s it for Issue 5.
