There's a website where people can buy and sell events that will happen in their future. The currency involved is a point system, with more pleasant events, such as getting back together with your girlfriend, having higher point values than unpleasant events, like losing your wallet. Strangely, deaths are high priced and seem to be in very high demand. A boy happens upon this website and, after realizing it's authentic, attempts to use it to improve his life. He may find out that messing with your future is more trouble than it is worth!

Translations: Chapter 1 (molokidan)
Scanlations: None

Akaba Teiichi is beginning his student career at an elite private boy's high school, which was originally renowned for producing many excellent naval officers. In its current incarnation, his school regularly turns out many important politicians and bureaucrats, and networking starts from day one. Teiichi is determined to become the school's student council president, a position which will help launch him into the political sphere after graduation. He has run his life so far by maintaining a perfect image, while never neglecting the darker side of politics.

He has plenty of help to reach his goal. Teiichi's father, who is now an important bureaucrat, lost the position of student council president during his high school years, and that loss has continually hindered his career. He's determined to support his son's success in any way he can. Teiichi also has his loyal best friend and second-in-command, Koumei, helping him with strategy. On the side of emotional support, Teiichi has his little sister and mother, in addition to his girlfriend Mimiko.

However, an unexpected force may rise against his ambition. An idealistic new teacher, Kurosaka Reiko, is determined to use her power to undermine the corrupt political traditions of their school. Her first step is to push a well-liked, highly intelligent, but poor student named Otaka Dan, who is not from the elite feeder middle school, into the political world. Will Teiichi be able to use the existing political system to achieve his goals, in spite of Kurosaka's efforts to upset the status quo?

This is what tethysdust said this week:
Quote:
Teiichi no Kuni was surprisingly entertaining, and my favorite of the week. It looks like it is shaping up to be a very complex and intelligent story. I was impressed with the story and how well-rounded and likable most of the characters are.
Here's a note from vyc:
Quote:
All the series this week were interesting to me. Dot Invader - The "hero" who isnt really courageous but isnt timid either, just average kid fighting aliens. The love interest who is pixilated. Comedy mixed in with a little bit of seriousness and romance. Juukinzoku Kanojo - heavy metal vs. romance. seems impossible but this does this well. Blood Lad - my favorite from this week. main character seems unreliable and lazy but time and time again, never lets you down. Otoko ... - the prologue to the already started series. Sets up the characters before they were involved in a messy relationship. You can already see the problems arising.
My opinion:
Anata no Mirai, Kaitorimasu sounds pretty interesting since it'd be pretty fun to be able to pick events that would happen in your life~ I'm sure people will read the BENCH scanlation since it's by the mangaka of Naruto. The pixelated people in Dot Invader look adorable and it may be a fun read. Juukinzoku Kanojo is definitely a good pick for anyone that likes a school romance type manga with a tsundere featured in it. I read the scanlation for the first chapter of Kanpeki na Kanojo. If you're looking for a short cute story about a seemingly perfect girl, then you might like this, although I would suggest waiting for a few chapters to be out for it before checking it out.


Translated items that need some love/scanlation:
xdeathcat - Cloth Weaver: Chapter 1 (Needs TLC/PR)
mikeythebest - Baki Scarface: Chapter 1 (Needs TLC/PR)
sonsofloki - Young Shima Kousaku: Chapter 1

Wow, a Furuya Usamaru series, and in Jump SQ, no less? I wonder if he's going to tone down his usual content since it's in a Jump serial. Very interesting.
