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:
Not much that stood out to me this time. My favorite was Oden. It was a bit silly, and had a fair amount of sexual content, but the teens-in-love-trying-to-reconcile-their-parents premise was fun! Nanahan also could be a fun one for fans of 4-koma style comics, it made me laugh.
Here's what vyc had to say:
Quote:
Samurai Soldier - Ex gang member forced to go back and face a former friend. Just like the other gangster series we featured in the past, I love this. The storyline is dramatic and keeps the reader from the start to end. There's no fluff and characters are well constructed.

Exoskull Rei - another favorite series this week. Warrior in a future setting with uber powers has to defeat the evil forces that control the post-apacalyptic world. On the violent side but storyline and attention to details are great. The artwork is fantastic and just everything about this series scream amazing.

My opinion:
Not sure if I'm really interested any manga this week. Cock Robin wo Korosu no wa kind of reminds me a bit of Mirai Nikki and Samurai Soldier reminds me of all those other yankee/delinquent manga. I might check them out if someone were to scanlate them though...


Translated items that need some love/scanlation:
myao - Circle Game: Chapter 1
PROzess - Cock Robin wo Korosu no wa: 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: ecchi girl's love manga Yurican - Yurika no Campus Life (MH link).
