New Manga Shout Out: 6/7/10 - 6/13/10

+ posted by c_k in Shout-Outs on Jun 14, 2010 08:45

Welcome to the next New Manga Shout Out. Short shout out this week. With the no-raws/scans rule on MH, you have to work a bit to find these mangas, although some are really new while others not so much. Remember, if you like any of the series, favorite them. Don't forget to also thank the various translators, raw uploaders/scanners and scanlators 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~

The bratty Kaguya despises her mother and the people around her for being so strict and often wishes she was never born as a princess.

Queen Fumiya has been severely ill for many years now, but has kept it from her daughter in order to protect her but her condition has worsened. The Umenouchi family takes this opportunity to start a coup and takes over the government. Knowing that she is not able to ensure her daughter’s safety on the moon, Fumiya sends Kaguya to Earth with the powerful katana that symbolizes her ownership of the moon. Without the sword, the Umenouchi family cannot usurp control of the moon. Kaguya is forced to mature and become stronger in order to take back what was once her mother’s!

Shihou Sekai no Ou (四方世界の王)
By: SADAKANE Shinji x AMANE Takashi

Demographics: Shounen
Status: 1 Volume (Ongoing)
Manga Details Page: Here
Raws: None on MH
Translations: Chapter 1 (shadow-skill)
Scanlations: None on MH

In the year 1800 B.C. there was an ancient city called Babilim, a very important trade center, and this is where a teenage boy named Namuru lives and attends school. Namuru is instantly attracted to the mysterious new girl in school, Shaz, and she later gets them in trouble with some street thugs when she steals from a merchant. However, Shaz removes the head of the attacker without killing him and scares the thugs away.

She explains to the confused Namuru that she possesses 1/50th blood of Marduke, the city of Babilim’s God of War, and that he does as well. With the blood of a god within him, she explains that they can tap into a small part of the almighty power to manipulate dimensions which in turn allows them to remove and transport objects (explaining the “beheading” of the street thug). What’s even more shocking is that Shaz wants Namuru to help her take over Babilim in order to destroy the kingdom!

Raws: None on MH
Translations: None
Scanlations: None

Every day, Yamada Ichirou takes a path to school that crosses with the girl he likes, Fujisaki Shiori. Every day, he thinks that maybe it will be the day he'll have the courage to speak to her. However, hundreds of days have passed and he still hasn't even managed to say one word.

One day, the overly developed 11-year-old Sakura Moe and her mother move in next door to Yamada. While her mother's away, Moe runs over to Yamada's house in a bath towel, demanding that he "rescue" her. Unluckily, that day also happens to be the first day ever that Shiori comes over to Yamada's house on an errand about schoolwork. Now she not only thinks he's a stalker, but also a pedophile! Will Yamada be able to convince her it was all a big misunderstanding or has he lost the girl of his dreams before he even got the courage to say "Hello"?

Thanks go to tethysdust for the summary.

This is what tethysdust said this week:
Quote:
Chocolate Devil was a neat story, but it was really short. Gekka Bijin looks pretty exciting.
Here's a note from vyc:
Quote:
Definitely interesting mangas this week. Both Shihou Sekai no Ou and Gekka Bijin are extremely interesting and incredibly well drawn. Shihou has that mysterious powers aspect to the storyline that has potential for a lot of cool stuff to happen. The concept of taking an ancient civilization setting and putting a modern spin to it seems really awesome. It has already been picked up for a couple of chapters so can't wait for the rest. Gekka Bijin takes a different spin on the Kaguyahime fairy tales. The life lessons that she is about to learn is going to be really touching but not forgetting comedy and action along the way. I think a lot of readers will be able to relate to the morals of the story.
My opinion: Gekka Bijin looks the most interesting of the bunch while Nekomimi Days looks like a cute slice-of-life manga. I might check out Shihou Sekai no Ou seeing it has a chapter scanlated and hopefully it'll continue getting scanlated. Thanks go to spiritovod for telling me about all these series.

Reading some of the comments in the previous news posts, some people expressed the desire for me to continue with these "new manga shout outs." However, these raws can no longer be hosted on MH. Do people care if the mangas I feature are not new and just aren't scanlated, but have raws available *somewhere*? Do you want news about newly scanlated mangas or do you want to learn about unscanlated/unknown mangas? Or do you only want to know about newly started mangas, but don't care if there are raws available? Just remember, that if there are raws available somewhere, it allows us to be able to provide summaries for your enjoyment. Please give me some feedback so I know how to continue on with these articles... Or even tell me if there's no need for me to continue with these articles. So the question is: How would you like me to continue (or not continue) with these shout outs?

Translated items that need some love/scanlation:
xdeathcat - Cloth Weaver: Chapter 1 (Needs TLC/PR)
fevrier - Straight No Chaser: One-shot (Needs TLC/PR)
mikeythebest - Baki Scarface: Chapter 1 (Needs TLC/PR)
StruckByLightning - Kanpachi: Chapter 1 | Chapter 2 (Needs TLC/PR)
kawaiiusagichan - Vampire Princess Yui: Chapter 1 (Needs PR)


If you haven't done so already, check out the scanlations of the mangas from previous shout outs which have been recently scanlated: ecchi fantasy Nana of Banana, romantic comedy Kimi to Kami Hikouki to., and school life comedy Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai.

These shout-outs are what keeps me alive.

Anyways... I like information on new mangas. If mangaupdates had something like this, I would go there but... they don't.
I like to learn about new unknown/unscanlated mangas.

zero chapter of Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai from the previous shout-out also was scanlated (just saw it on mangaupdates)...
i'll hope that people will help you, c_k, with those shout-outs, so you could keep going in any way...

btw, Shihou Sekai no Ou is based on the same novel series...

I would like you to continue doing new manga shoutouts. They are very useful for finding new series.

Personally, I like how you've been doing them. I would also like to know about newly started manga, raws or not.

Atleast have the raws available somewhere, I mean jeez what the heck was the point of this? As soon as i got excited about a summary of one I realized there was no link to even one. You only put the summary and it's like saying well it exist somewhere in the world... I'm like wait stop doing this or do something about that this killed me. You dont have to put scanslations but atleast links to raws or transscipts, something.

About the no scans/raws rule, I want to know if MH can cooperate with the scanlator, so we will still get the news of new scans from any scanlator at MH, but no links added. Basically is, only news at MH from scanlator about their new scans, but no links at their scanlation. Can this be done?

Malthara - I suggest you learn to use IRC or read my comments carefully. Because of the new rules, we're not going to blatantly link to raws/scans on the front page. That would completely go against the new rule that's been adopted. However, to let you know, there are raws available if you know where to look and know who to ask. The mangas in the shout out all currently have some raws available digitally.

Can you be more specific? If you're thinking about getting news about releases, you can pretty much tell when a chapter is out for the main/popular series through checking out the forums. When a new chapter is out, the thread title is changed to the current chapter. If you're looking for not-as-popular manga, I would suggest you to use mangaupdates. They are a great site for listing releases.

Read Shihou Sekai no Ou. Decent looking but not extraordinary, at least from the 1st chapter.

Scans for Gekka Bijin is not available yet, no?

Nah, I mean there'll be news in the shoutbox. But without links added or if it allowed, just give the links to the scanlator's main site who scanlate it (not the download page). I just like to open MH and know immediately there's new chap this week.

And can you give exception for raws scanned from new manga magazine (like WSJ). Publisher doesn't licence this one, right?

@Spiritovod

I didn't mean on MH >.>

I meant, is it available over the internet.

And thanks for the info.

@thornofcarrion:
Please, read her post carefully - she didn't mean MH from the very start. Besides, Jump SQ raws (where is Gekka Bijin are publishing) were banned here on MH a long before that removing of all raws.

I prefer series that haven't been scanlated, with raws available somewhere. I would also like to know about new series, that don't necessarily have raws available. But preferably about series with raws.
#17. by goshinbi (Registered User)

the Tonari no Raenzel W (となりのランドセルw) should be "tonari no randoseru W".
Unless I'm missing something.
#18. by Spiritovod (Registered User)
Posted on Jun 16, 2010
actually, "raenzel" is german "ränzel" which is diminutive of "ranzen" which means "schoolbag"...
all those mangakas who doesn't want to add romanization of their weird kana should die in hell, imo...

Why don't you go back and look at the other series you missed? You missed a few that I remembered I uploaded O_O

I like the manga shout outs. It keeps me updated ;)

c_k: "However, to let you know, there are raws available if you know where to look and know who to ask."

In other words for 99.9999% of people there are no raws available. So what he said is basically true.

The links in the shoutbox/notice that there's a new chapter out are automatically generated. I'm not sure if anyone on staff is willing to do it manually for all mangas since it requires ALOT of work. I think if you subscribe to mangaupdates' RSS feed, you'll know what releases are out too~

Sorry, but all raws (including new mangas and old) are not allowed on-site so I won't be able to provide links on the front page to the raws talked about in the shout out. Read all about it here.

Quote by Fallen Wings:

Only 2 don't have descriptions (Wanna be Hero and C - Message to Complex People), which I'll try and get done~

Quote by Piros 12:

Not true. Think about the answers to these questions and you'll know who to PM/where to go: What irc channel was talked about before when certain raws were previously taken down, but scans were allowed? How did we get the summaries (no, they were not translated from wiki or some Japanese site)? Who can get raws? Who translated the series? Also, read my comments at the end of the shout out carefully if you still can't think of anything...

But like I said before, we're not going to blatantly link to the raws on the front page due to the new rule.

Posted on Jun 25, 2010
continue please but since you cant host the raws anymore... not asking for links .. sadly i cant get them still continue with this im hoping for a better turnaround and save 5 million trees a month. and publishers should go digital if nothing more than to save the world.

irc channels? perhaps a tutorial on the forum. on how to use irc could help alleviate some frustrations .

BTW thanks you all for even doing what you have done and i learned alot , heck if an oldie like me can try and learn a new Language you can too!
