I forgot to mention that the March issue of CIEL will contain a new installment of Sekaiichi hatsukoi by Nakamura Shungiku...with a new main character! ARG! Does that mean that the Onodera arc is over or that she's going to take turns with this new character?

I'm a bit interested in "News na kare" by Yamato Nase, which is coming out in TresTres right now. It's December's rec on the CIEL page (here). It's about an ordinary kid (who has grownup without TV) who lives next door to a very popular actor, gets sucked into the actor's world and is loved muchly by the actor. Sounds really stupid, but I'm a sucker for these types of stories drawn by Yamato Nase. I especially love it when the kid is nothing special and a bit snarky and the older dude is disgustingly indulgent (I still have to mention this one really bad BL novel illustrated by Yamato Nase that totally fits this mold that I like to reread....Maybe when I get around to buying a new scanner?). It's so unrealistic but still fun to read.

Speaking of Yamato Nase, I didn't realize there was a drama CD of Benriya-san! I wouldn't mind listening to this one, I like this manga a lot. XD

Onodera arc is definitely not over--the last chapter still had 200+ days (can't remember the exact number) left on the countdown, so it's not anywhere near over. Nakamura was doing chapters of Egoist (and later Terrorist) concurrently with Romantica (the former in Ciel and the latter in Tres Tres), so this sort of thing is not new for her. What I wonder, though, is if this new one will be published together with the Onodera arc or if they'll have separate tankoubon.

re: News na kare - it's not my favorite Yamato Nase story, but there are some good parts. (Not that it's bad or anything, it just doesn't really hit my buttons.) Uke is definitely normal and snarky, but seme is not really what I would call indulgent.

I am *so* glad to hear that the Onodera arc isn't over. I hope this new arc is good...

Hm, I wonder if I'll like News na kare. I do like Yamato Nase, but even my favorite artists produce work that I dislike or find bleah...

I'll let you know what I think of the new chapter (it's in my current Amazon order, which will be shipped once the magazine is released).

It sounds like News would push your buttons more than it did mine, so I would recommend it for you.
