So will Sunadokei be taking the place of Baby and Me? That's probably one of the lesser liked series in SB. I'm still fond of everything else. I'm already buying the GNs for Crimson Hero and Nana, with plans to buy Vampire Night, so I just want Absolute Boyfriend to stay, since it's my guilty pleasure and I could never stand having to buy the GNs in the store (due to the rather...fanservicey covers).

well... i've never heard of these titles but i'm hoping for the best. lol even though i only like a scarce few of the manga currently running in SB, i still read it from time to time (especially for the Vampire Knight awesomeness). Anime catgrin and i'm looking forward to the new line-up they're working on.

I believe Sunadokei will be taking the place of the newest manga that took over for Backstage Prince, since the new manga is only a one volume deal. I for the life of me cannot remember its name. The first chapter was really cute though. But I am looking forward to new works in SB. I was sad to see Godchild go, but it opened up room for Vampire Knight which I adore, and Backstage Prince which was cute but that took the place of Kaze Hikaru.

I'm supposing that Suna-Dokei will be taking over the Yumekira Dream Shoppe slot.

I'm probably one of the only people who like Baby & Me, which is much better than Absoulute Boyfriend and Vampire Knight, IMO. It's a very heartwarming story. It's probably tied with Crimson Hero and Nana as my favorite SB magazine manga.

Wait, they replaced Backstage Prince?? Surprised When did this happen?

I've heard of Suna-dokei before, but not that other title. Anybody know what that one's about (seeing as there's no ANN entry for it)?

OMG, Fall In Love Like A Comic got licensed! I read scanlations of that a while ago and thought it was damned cute, something I'd love to have a physical copy of!

Emily's Random Shoujo Manga Page has a summary of that.

Baby & Me grew on me after a while. The recent story with the Amnesiac Grandfather was really good. I don't quite place it above VN, CR, and Nana, but it's on par with AB for sure.

Baby and Me is the only one I don't read in it...
I just skip right over it, I tried the first several and gave up. The first story of Yumekira Dream Shoppe made me cry, I so liked it...
and I don't normally tear up like that reading manga, especially in a short shot like that.
I will be looking forward to what's next.

Backstage Prince finished. It is only two volumes long. The last chapter was in the march issue.

Ahh, I see. Thanks for the head up.

So I take it that Yumekira Dream Shoppe replaced Backstage Prince in the April issue then?
