One day, high school student Daisuke is called back from his life in Tokyo to help with the family temple. It's something of a wreck, and he's supposed to help clean it up before it's sold to the city. When he arrives in his old hometown, he runs into people he once knew, such as his neighbor, Nao. Nao barely seems to note Daisuke's presence, but she is determined to keep the temple from being sold.
In addition to Nao, there are others who want the temple to be maintained-- the dead who are buried nearby. Daisuke realizes that he has the ability to see and interact with these spirits, and he sometimes can't even distinguish them from living people. Soon enough, he ends up derailing the business scheme and protecting the temple. However, there's a catch: since he ruined the deal, he has to transfer back to his old hometown and help with the upkeep. On top of handling the temple and his abandoned relationships with his childhood friends, he seems to have become the go-to guy to fix all the local ghosts' problems!Thanks go to tethysdust for the summary.

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:
- The name of the manga series
- A summary of the series
- Publishing Status (+ Number of Volumes/Chapters)
This is what tethysdust said this week:
Edo Karuta was probably my favorite of this week, it had some really interesting, worthwhile stories. Deresuke was neat, too, it seemed like a more comedic approach to the whole 'helping ghosts with unfinished business' plot. Kyosuurei was kind of bleak and strange, but the art and the story were pretty good.
Here's what vyc had to say:
Hanimero - high school romance, ecchi series. I dont know why but I like this one. Maybe it's the unique drawing style that caught my eye. Whatever it was, pretty good series to read.
Haikin - new kind of series revolving around venture capitols, making money, etc. Not only is it super informative, the plot line is very well scripted and keeps the suspense and drama very high. Must read for anyone imo.
The idea of Haikin
sounds pretty interesting. Plus, maybe you WILL learn something that'll help you in this economy~ If anyone recognizes the art from Hanimero。
, it's by the author of the shoujo manga Five
. The subject matter is quite different for a shoujo mangaka. Hitsugi Tantei D&W
looks a bit intriguing, especially since there's a supernatural element~Translated items that need some love/scanlation:myao
