+ posted by c_k in Shout-Outs on Jul 12, 2010 07:41

Welcome to the next New Manga Shout Out. With the no-raws/scans rule on MH, you have to work a bit to find these mangas. Thanks to vyc for making so many summaries otherwise we'd have a lot less mangas featured. Anyway, 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~

Ren is a high school student that's a genius at academics, sports, and pretty much everything else that he tries. All the people around him despise, mock, and envy him, so the lonely Ren has convinced himself that all of them are pretty much worthless morons. The latest activity to come to Ren's attention is a strategy card game called UT (Ultimate Tactics), at which he has swiftly become a champion.

However, little does he know, the world of this card game actually exists. Right now, it is in a state of turmoil as a conqueror has begun to consolidate its many small nations. A character from the game, Kuraibu, sees through Ren's callous facade and brings him to the world of UT to become the world's True Ruler. Will Ren be able to use his UT game tactics and knowledge to conquer this world? And if he can, will he actually be the benevolent bringer of peace that Kuraibu hopes for or a vicious tyrant?

Here's a note from vyc:
Quote:
Lots of great series this week. Not in any particular order. Shikkoku no Neue Seele - an action comedy that is already hilarious from the first chapter. cant wait to see how the world changed. Tsukumono - want to see more of what kind of spirits there are and what they are capable of. Steal Hero - cool story line and want to see how the cowardly becomes brave. Shirokuro Shounen Kansoku - beautiful drawing and so far interesting and original story line. would like to see how the plot progresses. Kettama! - Shuukyuu Riot Girls - with the whole soccer craze going on with the world cup might interest a lot of people. Seiketsu no Haguruma - missed the first chapter but got caught up decently without it. pretty interesting story. Warau Yakubyougami - not sure if it is oneshot or not but the dark and twisted plot line is sweet. Takes a stab at the human psych.
My opinion: A few caught my eye: Guren no Tactics - I'm kind of interested in seeing how the game will affect the main character's life. The backstory for Seiketsu no Haguruma sounds really interesting and I hope someone scanlates this series. Getting more cute seinen romances like Signorina Cultivation scanlated wouldn't be too bad either~ ^^ Sowachine sounds like a cute slice of life type manga too~ Tsukumono reminds me a bit of Natsume Yuujin Chou

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)
kawaiiusagichan - Vampire Princess Yui: Chapter 1 (Needs PR)

Guren No Tactics and Seiketsu no Hagurama look the most interesting. I totally thought of what c_k thought for Tsukumono- it sounds a lot like Natsume Yuujinchou, but with a more badass character. :D

Seiketsu seems like a good premise, but I wonder if it'll hold to it. :D

Seiketsu no Haguruma,looks very promising,can't wait for it being scanlated.
On the other hand,Mr.Mille-Feuille's pretty funny,a nice and short one-shot...It's more like the comedy type I'd want it to be serialized...
