+ posted by c_k in Shout-Outs on Mar 3, 2014 09:15

Welcome to the next New Manga Shout Out. This weekly article introduces you to manga that are new and/or have not been scanlated yet. This week features a love app, a high school gag manga, and a mysterious pair granting a wish for happiness. Remember, if you like any of the series, favorite them. Don't forget to also thank the various people who feed your manga addiction. ^_^ Translators and Scanlators, please check out these series and see if you can spread some more manga love~

We're still looking for people who know Japanese and want to help write summaries for our manga database and for the shout out. Please PM me if you want to help out. Now onto the series~


I Shoujo (i・ショウジョ)
By: TAKAYAMA Toshinori

Demographics: Shounen
Status: 3 Chapters (Ongoing)
Manga Details Page: Here
Translations: None
Scanlations: None

There is a magic love app that supposedly helps people's dreams of love come true. The first story of this love app follows Tetta and Ginko, friends who have bickered since grade school. Tetta looks up the magic app on a whim, and ends up with an application that is connected to Ginko. When he manipulates the "Ginko" on the app, it affects the real girl. He's embarrassed to have it in the first place, but he can't uninstall it without inputting Ginko's measurements. Whether he actually likes Ginko romantically or not, it seems that this app could only make the situation worse!

Thanks go to tethysdust for the summary.

Seinaru Megumi (せいなるめぐみ)
By: ARAI Cherry

Demographics: Seinen
Status: 2 Volumes (Complete)
Manga Details Page: Here
Translations: None

This 4-koma gag manga is about a group of high school students who were childhood friends. Sei used to go to a fancy girls' school, but now she's attending high school with her cousin, Hiyori. Sei and Hiyori don't exactly get along, but they both like Sei's 'nanny' Megumi, the man who raised her. Now they go to school with Hiyori's childhood friend, Mitsumasa, and enjoy high school life with their classmates.

Thanks go to tethysdust for the summary.

Zetsubou no Kurojiasu (絶望のクロージアス)
By: EDOYA Pochi

Demographics: Seinen
Status: 3 Chapters (Ongoing)
Manga Details Page: Here
Translations: None
Scanlations: None

If you're in despair, dial 111 and say "I want to be happy." A mysterious pair will show up that can grant you a single wish, the one thing you believe you need to be happy. On top of the wish, you must promise to become happy, or you must face deadly consequences at their hands. The first few stories involve a man who believes he just needs one more chance with his ex-girlfriend, and a woman who believes she'll be happy if a wealthy prince-like man marries her.

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:
  1. The name of the manga series
  2. A summary of the series
  3. Publishing Status (+ Number of Volumes/Chapters)

This is what tethysdust said this week:
Quote:
For Zetsubou, I think there are plenty of interesting wishes-gone-wrong stories they could tell. I'd also be interested to learn more about the dangerous wish-granters. I Shoujo was actually a pretty cute romance. It featured just the one couple in the 3 chapters I read, but I'm guessing it will continue with magic apps in other couples' love stories. Seinaru Megumi is one for fans of 4-koma gag manga about high schoolers.

My opinion:
I Shoujo sounds like a cute romance manga - great for those in the mood for love. I'm surprised it's in Jump though~
Seinaru Megumi - if you're in the mood for a slapstick school comedy, then this manga will be your cup of tea...
Zetsubou no Kurojiasu - This sort of reminds me of Jigoku Shoujo (Hell Girl) who kind of granted wishes for revenge in exchange for your soul. Although the art seems more shoujo-ish, it still gives me that vibe since wishes are very tricky. I'd be interested in reading this.


Translated items that need some love/scanlation:
