1a. Feature: VIDEO GIRL AI GRAPHIC NOVEL VOL. 2: MIX DOWN



As the VCR overheats, the "defective" Ai is recalled by her heartless

creator back into the video world whence she came! And finally, when

she is allowed to return to Yota's side, it is under one condition:

she cannot allow herself to fall in love with him, or she will be

deleted! Will she be seduced instead by Yota's classmate, the

artistic-and scheming-Takao Sorayama? Meanwhile, Moemi's relationship

with Takashi is hollow, and she turns to her "good friend" Yota for

reassurance. But is it just reassurance she wants...or have Yota's

dreams been answered?

MONTHLY COMIC



AQUA KNIGHT #4

Ruliya and Arrabus are interrupted by the arrival of the colossal

floating Zyfort, bringing a group of colonists to Lighthouse Island!

Alcontra, a haughty aristocrat from faraway Antipoda, has arrived,

and it's 1492 all over again as he claims the island for himself and

dubs it Zyland. And "the natives look as if they will make fine

slaves."



EAGLE: THE MAKING OF AN ASIAN-AMERICAN PRESIDENT #6: THE KING OF NEW

YORK

As the New York primaries approach, candidate Yamaoka tries to get

the endorsement of Gilbert Blackburn, the mayor of New York City and

political power broker. As the political maneuvering becomes more

complicated, Takashi Jo finds it impossible to stay neutral. Who will

be the Democratic nominee: former vice president Albert Noah,

or "reformer with a record" Yamaoka?



NO NEED FOR TENCHI!: PART 9, #5

With Ayeka as his bargaining chip, Yataka parlays with Tenchi and Co.

for the prisoner he really wants: Ryoko! But some people are more

dangerous to have as hostages than enemies! And as tensions mount,

the one who's got its finger on the button turns out to be the

mechanical intelligence Mikamo. Chu! Chu! Chu!
