One day, a high school boy named Rumi comes across an abandoned, decommissioned tram car, a place that could make a neat 'secret base.' He also meets the wildly energetic Fujino, who challenges him to a duel over usage of the space. Their duel is actually a very creative, competitive game played out in the public areas of the town. While Rumi almost can't believe what's happening, he has to admit that their 'duel' is the most fun and excitement he's had in a long time, much more exciting than his video games. Before long, Rumi and Fujino are friends, and their adventures with the abandoned tram car, soon named the "Black Parade," have begun!

  2. A summary of the series
  3. Publishing Status (+ Number of Volumes/Chapters)

This is what tethysdust said this week:
Quote:
Burapa looks like it could become a pretty good story, I don't think the characters are as stereotypical as they appear at first. Hatsukiai was really innocent and cute. Musubi no Mori had really old-style character art, but the story was the most entertaining of the ones I read this week.
Here's what vyc had to say:
Quote:
We Need Kiss - awesome series about the adult industry in Japan with hosts/hostesses. Lots of violence, sex and other mature topics. The storyline and twists keeps you glued to the pages.

Animal Joe - Same author as GTO. Same kind of comedy so if you liked GTO, you will enjoy Animal Joe. The main character is cool and pure awesomeness. Must read.

My opinion:
The only manga that really seemed somewhat interesting to me is Animal Joe only due to the fact that it's from the mangaka of GTO. However, it's only one volume and on hold so who knows if he'll ever return to this manga and finish it...


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


If you haven't done so already, check out the scanlations of the mangas from previous shout outs which have been recently scanlated: romantic comedy Otoko wo Misete yo Kurata-kun! (MH link), historical action fantasy Magical Musou Tenshi Tsukisase!! Ryofuko-chan (MH link).
