I just got the December 2010 issue of Lala Special. So happy! I bought it from the Japan Centre in Regent Street, London which costed me £11.70. I couldn’t get it on the Japan Centre website since it wasn’t the normal Lala monthly magazine and the shipping fee from Amazon.jp was just crazy! The Lala Special issue differs from the parent by releasing Lala monthly’s side stories as well as a variety of one-shots from mangakas.This issue contains Ouran’s special chapter as well as a selection of previous chapters, there’s also a announcement that there will be a special one-shot sequel at the beginning of next year!(there are many other series as well, vampire knight etc. not just ouran if you’re wondering)
There’s also a set of Ouran bookmarks!!! There are 8 bookmarks as you can see:
Now I have an extra reason to look forward to reading my books.
I mainly bought this month’s special issue because of the Ouran commemoration, it’s so sad to say good-bye after 7 wonderful years. I’ll definitely cherish Ouran forever(T_T), thank you Bisco Hatori.
