Lala 04/2011~

My copy of LaLa 4, just taken out from this HUGE, GIGANTIC BOX AMAZON.JP GAVE ME.

Time for Lala 4! Excitement! Excitement! I’ve been looking back at my older magazine posts and I was quite disappointed by the quality of the pictures I shared. This time round, I added extra effort to improve the quality(You can tell a big difference compared to my previous posts xD). In fact, scanning my magazines may be a good idea right about now since it might take the equivalent effort but meh.

I hope you enjoy this post, I made sure I included every single serialisation in this issue for more viewing pleasure! I think I deserve a golden star sticker like those they give elementary children!


I’d like to dedicate my absolute ADORATION for the cover! I just started watching the Natsume Yuujinchou anime and I absolutely love it; I will pick up on the manga very soon and I think it’s very likely that I’m going to be adding it into my tankoubon collection. Here’s a ZOOM-IN shot to give Natsume extra lurve:


Time for the magazine’s freebie, a black Nyanko-Sensei bag tag! Came in this box here:

Lookie! Arawr has been trying to buy it off from me Lol.

It’s made of this sponge-like material in the inside and has a plastic barrier to combat moisture. As you can see at the back, you can slip your card inside with your address or whatever details:

Here’s the chapter cover, picture is extra large, for extra attention. Hehehe:

I hardly touched the manga version but this chapter looks packed with adrenaline:
Vampire Knight  by Hino Matsuri

Here’s the double page cover of the Vampire Knight chapter:

They’re not a very cheerful bunch are they? Lol, never followed it so I don’t know!

Harukanaru Toki no Naka de by Mizuno Tohko

The LaLa(s) have been promoting the Haruka game like BAM BAM BAM. It’s like, it never fails to make it into one of the promotion spaces!


Ookami-heika no Hanayome/Wolf King’s Bride  by Kauta Mato

Now look at the chapter cover, doesn’t it just scream for you read it!? Mr. Wolf King exercising his charm.

Oh, I follow this manga. It’s so cute when the king goes to chibi-form!

Kaichou wa Maid-sama!  by Fujiwara Hiro

No idea what’s going on but yes! Kaichou wa Maid-sama!

Kisu yori mo Hayaku/Faster than a Kiss by Tanaka Meca

I’ve been recommended this manga for quite a while now but I’ve never actually sat down to read it properly. One of these days, one of these days…

Gakuen Babysitters  by Tokeino Hari

Heavens, I’d buy Lala just for this serialisation! By the way, can you see Ryuuichi & Kamitani sitting next together with all the kids? I’ve been having shounen ai thoughts about both of them. Oops, naughty naughty, hehehe. It does make sense in way HAHA. Kamitani is a tsundere and Ryuuichi has such a kind and caring personality.

Kiniro no Corda/La Corda D’Oro by Kure Yuki

Out of the guys, it’s pretty much Tsukimori dominating in this chapter.

Junai Labyrinth/Pure Love Labyrinth  by Nakaji Yuki

Never read Junai Labyrinth but I know I really liked Love for Venus so I might pick this up from chapter one

Oiran Girl  by Hibiki Wataru

Pretty chapter cover page!

So pretty! Look at the contrast in facial expression on both pages xD

Toshokan Sensou: Love & War by Author: Arikawa Hiro and Artist: Yumi Kiiro

Erm. Love & War!

This is yet another popular story that I’ve never read.

Hyakunen Renbo  by Mashiba Nao

New chapter of Hyakunen Renbo! If you have not read this I highly recommend that you do! A lovely new concept in the Royalty genre. Sorry for that flipping form thing in the pic xD.

Check it out if you haven’t already!
Last addition of pics. Poor Natsume and Mikan, they look so lost in this picture 😦 My heart reaches out to them. The latest Gakuen Alice chapter on HanaYume 7, I just checked the HanaYume website and its now available.

PHEW. I just made a new record by posting 26 large pics in one post. I hope you enjoyed these few snippets of Lala 4! I went through the promo pages in Lala 4 regarding Lala 5 material and it just helped me confirm that I will be getting  Lala 5. I think I might post some stuff on Asuka 4 and I’ll combine it with Asuka 1 which I have never mentioned before. Better late than never right? Til’ the next time!

    Waaah~ Thanks so much for all the pictures ^^It was great to look through all of them! I have to admit, the one i’m (personally) most excited about is Kiniro no Corda. Because I’m a Tsukimori♥ fan.
    Erm, Love & War looks nice ^^ I can’t say i’ve ever heard of it before (maybe i’m out of the loop) And also Hyakunen Renbo looks nice, too! Since you recommend it, I might pick it up soon!

    ☆ Gold Star Awarded!!! ☆
