In this world, there are people known as "Minimum Holders" who are capable of specific "small miracles." A government funded elite academy trains these Minimum Holders in order for them to reach their maximum potential and serve national interests. Once, a student, of great potential named Nice, dropped out. He started a private investigator team with an assistant named Hajime and seemed content solving cases for his clients (which often involve Minimum Holders). A top student of the academy, Murasaki, has been tasked with bringing Nice back. Murasaki bristles at the claim that Nice has a higher potential than he does, but he ends up involved in Nice's detective activities...Thanks go to tethysdust for the summary.

Note to all scanlators:
If you recently started scanlating a new manga series (with about 5 or less chapters released) and would like your manga to be shouted out in the next New Manga Shout Out, then please PM me. Please include:
- The name of the manga series
- A summary of the series
- Publishing Status (+ Number of Volumes/Chapters)
This is what tethysdust said this week:
Soredemo Boku wa Kimi ga Suki was sweet but kind of sad, since the relationships explored all ended. It seems like there is some hope for a happy ending though! Hamatora seems quite different from the first episode of the anime. I prefer the manga-start to the anime-start. It seems to introduce the characters and the world in a more entertaining way, in my opinion. Renai SLG is not really my kind of manga, and I don't think it has enough ecchi stuff (at least in the first few chapters) to attract the audience it might be looking for.
My opinion: Hamatora
might be interesting for those that are into the anime.Hana to Oyogu
might be good for the people who like some mystery and 4komas. It might be interesting to see how she became a ghost...Ore to Sex Sureba Ureru
- Those interested in the manga industry might want to check it out to see how Kaho became a mangaka... Although I think the description makes it seem like it's going to be a lot more ecchi filled and those interested in it may be disappointed... ^^;;Orebushi
- If you're looking for a more slice of life type manga and seeing the struggles of a singer, this manga may be for you~Renai SLG
- Does sound like the stereotypical plot from an anime... Sounds like it's geared toward those into anime/games...Soredemo Boku wa Kimi ga Suki
- If you're wanting a romance type manga, then this would be the one to check out...Translated items that need some love/scanlation:myao
- Circle Game
: Chapter 1persona_1
- Mahou Shoujo Pretty Bell
