Titel: Fairy Cube 1 (妖精標本 [フェアリーキューブ] 1)
Artist: Yuki Kaori
ISBN Code: 4592183517
Price: 410 Yen (incl. tax)

Story: Hasumi Ian, who also goes by the nickname of "Ian the Liar", possesses the ability to perceive mysterious beings; he can also see another self of himself, a boy called Tokage.
One day, Ian is witness to the "Fairy Murders" that have been shaking the world. He obtains a strange cube from the enigmatic man Kaito. But what was trapped inside the stone?

The original manga title is 「妖精標本」 which is normally pronounced "Yousei Hyouhon" and means "Fairy Speciman", but the furigana reading provided for the title is 「フェアリーキューブ」 (FEARIIKYUUBU), thus the correct title is "Fairy Cube."

Just like most of Yuki Kaori's previous titles, Fairy Cube is running in Hana to Yume, a shoujo manga magazine published by Hakusensha and out on the 5th and 20th of every month.

Its first installment was published in Hana to Yume 6/2005 (on sale February 19, 2005; see cover on the left).

For people new to manga, here's a short note on the publication system in Japan:
Manga series are published in magazines. The number of pages of one installment varies. If the required amount of pages has been published after a few months, the installments are collected and published in one volume, called tankoubon. Regular tankoubon have about 180 to 200 pages and there's one new tankoubon about every 4-5 months for each series running regularly in HanaYume.
