Hieda-sensei is a professor of archeology, with a fervent belief in the existence and power of supernatural creatures like gods and demons. Since he can't prove anything, his belief has earned him the mocking nickname "Youkai Hunter" from his colleagues. One day, two men from Ootori-chou come to visit him. They're planning to promote tourism by reviving their town's old, traditional "Demon Festival," which has been discontinued for the past century. They're basing the festival on Hieda's research, although they're changing a few details to make it flashier for modern sightseers. Although Hieda is troubled by the history of human death associated with the festival, he agrees to attend as an advisor. When the Demon Festival turns out to be much more 'historically accurate' than anyone ever dreamed, it will take all of Hieda's knowledge and courage to help set things right!

Note to all scanlators: If you recently started scanlating a new manga series (with about 5 or less chapters released) and would like your manga to be shouted out in the next New Manga Shout Out, then please PM me. Please include:
  1. The name of the manga series
  2. A summary of the series
  3. Publishing Status (+ Number of Volumes/Chapters)

This is what tethysdust said this week:
Quote:
There were some fun ones this week. My favorite this week was Youkai Hunter. The art is great, the story well-planned and well-written, and the characters act like people. It's also a complete story in one volume, though I imagine it would be easy to write more stories with the main character.

Second most interesting would be Blood-C. Between fans of Clamp, fans of the new Blood-C anime, and fans of the world of Blood/Blood+, I doubt this one will get overlooked. It is very different from Blood/Blood+ though, and the first volume is something like 95% daily school life and 5% fighting monsters. I get the impression that the supernatural elements are probably going to pick up in the near future, though.

Third favorite would go to Imawa no Kuni no Alice. I think it has the potential to be an interesting story, but I can't tell if it's going to end up focusing obsessively on the games at the expense of developing the characters and the plot.

Here's what vyc had to say:
Quote:
18 Rin - a comedy / ecchi series for the little mature audience. Innocent virgin girl gets thrown into the world of porn production. Very funny and interesting.

G - racing series about a prodigy young racer. You learn a lot about racing in general and the storyline is interesting so it doesnt get boring even though it is detailed.

Devil Ecstasy - another ecchi / mature series. Lots of naked girls and some sex scenes involved but it is sorta suspenseful and funny so it kept me interested.

My opinion:
18 Rin reminds me of Koe no Oshigoto. Imawa no Kuni no Alice probably sounds the most interesting to me. I'm curious as to what games they may play in order to survive, although the concept doesn't really sound new.


Translated items that need some love/scanlation:
myao - Circle Game: Chapter 1

Honestly, I have nothing to say. I want to read all of them.
Yeah, it's that simple. All of them are that amazing.

I love how CLAMP is taking initiative with a new titled shounen.
The "G" series looks like something out of Bakuman...lol

And I've read "Tokyo Girls Destruction" from the last manga shoutout, and I think it is a very sweet manga to read. Both guys and girls will love it. The violence is a little crazy and funny, but that's what makes it interesting.

In the shoutout, the manga series that caught my eye:
1. 18 Rin (18倫)
2. Devil Ecstasy
3. Hungry Joker
4. Imawa no Kuni no Alice
5. Last Exile: Ginyoku no Fam
6. Youkai Hunter - Yami no Kyakujin

...The others are still good, but these are the ones I would regularly check for updates to see if a new chapter is out. Don't get me wrong, I've read similar stories like the ones I mentioned above - but the key here is not the similarity, but the intensity that the mangaka makes of their stories to make it as compelling to read as possible.

Thanks c_k for the manga shoutout. It seems I had alot to say in the end. O_o
Now lets hope someone scanlates even half of what you put on the list..xD
