Her father is the notorious and elusive Pirate King, Captain Phantom!

This is what tethysdust said this week:
Quote:
Montage was the one that grabbed me this week. It has a really great mystery, and I think the main 'present' character is going to have a good story as well. Lega no 13 also had some interesting art that was somewhat different from the norm.
Here's a note from vyc:
Quote:
I like some of the series from this week. Once Again - I like this new series. Focuses on politics in Japan but in a comedy way so that you wont get bored and so informational. I really like the plot and feel that it has great potential. Bokura wa Minna Kawaisou - romantic comedy with modern jokes. I really like the humor in this series. There is enough romance to keep those looking for the genre interested but not too much that it will prevent those who don't from reading it. A very good balance and easy read.
My opinion:
I definitely want to check out 87Clockers to see if we can expect the quirky humor we found in Nodame to be here~ As for another good series, Montage sounds like a really good mystery. I'm always up for mysteries and I hope a nice group will scanlate this series.



If you haven't done so already, check out the scanlations of the mangas from previous shout outs which have been recently scanlated: drama fantasy Liselotte to Majo no Mori (MH link).
