I buy Ribon and Nakayoshi whenever I've got the money to spare, but it's not as often as I'd like. What's running in Asuka?

Lynzie - You asked about what series are currently in Asuka? X, Gohou Drug, Oukoku no Kagi, and D.N.Angel are probably the more interesting stories in Asuka at the moment. I get Asuka beacuse Angelique and Ahiru No Ouji-sama were in it, but now that they ended...I'm sad. ;_; I hope Yura-sensei continues on with Angelique featuring Angelique Collet and Rachel. ^_^
totalanimeotaku - The magazine is 420 yen, so it's arond the $5 range.
I get all my shoujo manga magazines in Little Tokyo, Los Angeles. Yeah, Asuka is pretty big, but Lala is a bigger magazine (and all of the art in it is good). I get Lala for Harukanaru Toki No Naka De, Kareshi Kanojou Jijou, Kaguya Hime, and Merupuri.
Hana to Yume is my favourite because God Child, Hanazakari no Kimitachi E, Fruits Basket, and Global Garden are in it. (Yay for God Child and Furuba!)
I only get Sho-Comi because Watase Yuu's series are always in the magazine. A lot of the stuff in the magazine are all those "love" stories and are a "ecchi".
Yeah, the furoku (freebies) in the magazines are great. I have a HUGE pile of furoku in my cabinet. They are so nice that I don't even want to use them. Well...I did use a Milk Crown Lovers bag when I was at AX this year...it came in handy. ^_^
