Japan: Kaori Yuki skips 1 month and will release chapter 6 of Iiki no Ki on February 28 only in Aria #4. I confirm the existence of colour in ch.5 with a colorful double title page AND first page. Kaori Yuki is really making us a nice present this month with these two gorgeous illustrations, thank you sensei!
About something totally different now, if you feel curious, have a look at the photos gallery of the author, you'll find cute homemade pastries ^^ and also a bit further her birthday cake.
France: The Royal Doll Orchestra 4 has been released a few days ago, a preview of the first pages is available on Tonkam's site. The 5th and last volume is scheduled on March 9 with the oneshot Camelot Garden inside at the end. :D And by the way, happy new year everyone!
