We have Yashio to Mikumo by Kusakawa Nari gracing the cover of Lala DX 03/2011!!!
Hello there everyone, I’ve just had one of the worst days in this year but everythings going to be alright! I have faith! Today is also the day my amazon.jp order arrived, I’m expecting the 2nd shipment to be arriving tomorrow since today was an early delivery. In this shipment I got Lala DX 3, Lala 4 & Asuka 4. I will be covering Lala 4 sometime this week and if the world depends on it, I’ll take some snaps of my Asuka 4 too. I don’t scan my stuff even though my scanner sits right next to me xD. A camera is so much easier plus my magazines don’t have to undergo any form of torture Lol.
I remember not being enthralled when I read the first chapter of Natsume’s Book of Friends but I’ve just started watching Natsume’s Book of Friends after I discovered that season 3 is announced. I need to try reading the manga again. If a manga is able to pull-off 3 seasons, it must be pretty good stuff. I mean, what happened to Ouran High School Host Club & Fruits Basket? Oh yes, I’D LOVE TO OWN THOSE BoF stuff in the picture above toooo!
This is the freebie of this issue of Lala DX, something to do with Tohko Mizuno once again, I’ve already lost count how many Tohko Mizuno freebies there are offered by the last few issues of Lala DX. This is a school calender as you can see. You can actually make it stand and etc but I didn’t take a photo of that sorry!
The cover of the calender stand, you flip it open and voila! Character data!
The calender starts from April this year and ends at March next year.
They’re really pretty illustrations, definitely a nice calender to have sitting on your desk, I thought about carrying them around in my bag but then I remembered I had the Lala pop-up calender(being neglected).
Now let me flip out some photos of the serialisations of this issue!

Here we have Koi dano Ai dano by Tsujita Ririko.
It’s one of the few shoujo manga that has a heroine wearing glasses lately.
Here are shots of the 16 page Gakuen Babysitters fairytale extra. They really did a good job pretti-fying the pages by just adding one more colour!
More shots for Gakuen Babysitters since I love it so much, special service. Doesn’t Ryuuichi look really good with that ensemble of clothes?
A huge wave of cute-ness engulfs my soul. That is all I can say.
