No matter how hard he thinks about it, Todoin Seiya cannot figure out why he doesn’t have a girlfriend in his 16 year lifespan. Physically attractive, naturally smart, athletic and, on top of that, comes from a wealthy and politically significant family. And it’s not like he hasn’t tried either; but every girl he asks out flat out rejects him. Seiya sets a goal for himself to get a girlfriend by the time high school ends and rejection isn’t going to stop him from trying again. But it sure is heartbreaking when you get rejected this many times without knowing why.

Tenchi Meisatsu (天地明察)
By: UBUKATA Tou x MAKI Ebishi

Demographics: Seinen
Status: 1 Volume (Ongoing)
Manga Details Page: Here
Translations: None
Scanlations: None

In 1661, Yasui Santetsu is a member of the Yasui House of the Four Houses of Go. However, he's beginning to doubt that Go is his true calling. Outside of the Go house, he goes by the name Shibukawa Harumi, and he's fascinated by mathematical and astronomical problems. Specifically, Harumi is pouring all of his energy into creating a new Japanese calender.

The story is based on the actual astronomer and calender-reformer Shibukawa Harumi (1639-1715). In Harumi's time, the Japanese used the Chinese lunar-solar Xuan-ming calendar, which had not been updated in nearly 800 years. At that point, there was already a two-day delay in the winter solstice. He reformed the calendar based on his careful astronomical observations.

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:
The only one that caught my eye this week was Tenchi Meisatsu. I don't really know much about ancient Asian calendars or Go culture, so it seemed a little dense, but I think it would be a great story if it matches your interests.
Here's what vyc had to say:
Quote:
Crimsons - kinda like WTF series. Fish are the main character as they try to travel from a small lake to the pacific ocean. New idea but I'm really not sure how readers are going to take it...
My opinion:
Naze Toudouin Seiya 16-sai wa Kanojo ga Dekinai no ka? sounds interesting. If a guy is that great, but he's rejected, what could possibly be turning him off to girls..? Tenchi Meisatsu piqued my interest too. Yay for math~ :p


Translated items that need some love/scanlation:
myao - Circle Game: Chapter 1
Runte - Denpa Kyoushi: 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: school life action Ware wa Ken-oh!! (MH link), supernatural action Imawa no Kuni no Alice (MH link), sci-fi adventure Asamiya-san no Imouto (MH link).
