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.

Mag Updates: Asuka Issue 04/12

tBPII is back with another mag post filled with tidbits from the April edition of 月刊Asuka.


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.


Mag Updates: Asuka Issue 03/12

Oh look, what do we have here? Not the manga mag snippets, is it back?

ASUKA MARCH COVER feat. “Kyou kara Ma no Tsuku Jiyuugyou!

Yes, yes it’s back after such a loooooong hiatus. I haven’t been able to contribute properly because my being really tied-up with work IRL. This would be the first of the back log posting and since March is nearly ending, I thought we should just begin with snippets from ASUKA’s March Issue. That way, I’ll only have the April issue before we catch up to the latest May issue. Confused? Don’t be. The Japanese publications usually releases their issues a month ahead of the current one. That’s how it is.
