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:
Smoking Gun was my favorite this week. It seemed like it was going to have a pretty good balance between mystery-of-the-chapter and a longer-running story. Boku no Suki na Sensee would be good for anyone in the mood for a book-learning != life-experience comedy. Asa Meshi Mae looks like it will take more of the heartwarming route, as Gen's work at the restaurant influences different people's lives.
Here's what DrCoke had to say:
Haru no Kamikaze is simply adorable. If you like little kittens and and feel-good-slice-of-life type 4koma mangas, you'd love this one.
My opinion: Asa Meshi Mae
- If you like cooking, and want a more heart warming manga, then you should check this manga out.Boku no Suki na Sensee
- If you're in the mood for a short 1 volume comedy and you want to watch a guy who isn't good with kids struggle as a preschool teacher, then this manga is for you.Boku no Suki na Sensee
- On the other hand, if you like slice of life comedies in 4koma form, then you might want to read this one instead.Smoking Gun - Minkan Kasouken Chousain Nagareda Midori
