+ posted by c_k in Shout-Outs on Sep 6, 2010 07:13

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. Short shout out this week due to real life. 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~

20-year-old Aihara Minoru has come to Tokyo to make his dreams of becoming an action manga artist come true. To his amazement, he lands a job as a live-in assistant of his favorite mangaka, Takakura Kenji, who writes a popular fighting manga called "Ultimate Banchou."

Upon arriving at his new workplace, however, he discovers that his idol is not the tough guy he'd always imagined. The truth is, Takakura Kenji is the pen name of Sekai Ichiko, a girl his age who is basically a moe character (she looks and acts like a little kid). After Aihara's obvious disappointment starts them off on the wrong foot, it's going to be tough for him to prove to her that he has what it takes to be a manga artist!

This is what tethysdust said this week:
Quote:
Agrippa was pretty neat, its not all that often that there's a manga about French history. Comic Studio was pretty funny, though the 20-year-old love interest totally looks like she's 8.

My opinion:
Sorry for the extremely short shout out. When real life calls, you gotta answer. Anyway, next week should have more mangas. ^^ As for this week, all of them seem pretty interesting although I'm a sucker for gender benders so I'd be most interested in seeing Mao Marimo scanlated. :p Oh, and Happy Labor Day for the US folks~

I was going to say mix Basilisk with Vagabond. Looks somewhat interesting. I'd definitely go with Agrippa though, that's the only one that really caught my eye (despite the fact I love both Basilisk and Vagabond).
