Over time, she learned that strength could be used to protect people, not just to hurt them. As the Kusunoki family raised her and taught her to fight, she learned that their clan was one that strove to protect the weak. Her first love was the Kusunoki heir, Masashige, though he only saw her as a little sister. As they struggle through these difficult times, with an unstable government and the dangerous possibility of overthrowing it, will Aguri ever be able to win Masashige's love?

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:
Citrus was pretty well-written. The main character was very likable, and the school life aspects seemed fairly realistic. Whiteout was kind of neat, it sort of reminded me of an action film. Megu Miruku is a magic gender-bender, something I haven't seen come up much lately.
Here's what vyc had to say:
Quote:
Score of the Seventh Class - romance series revolved around first love/ puppy love. Normally don't like stories like this but I don't know what got me interested in this one. Seems a little different from others, but I cant quite put my finger on it.
My opinion:
Although it's christmas season, we don't really have any xmas related manga, but we DO have a lot of love-related manga. However, the only one that really piqued my interest is Score of Seventh Class. It's always refreshing to read about a cute young couple learning about love~


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: mature horror Arthur Pyuty wa Yoru no Majo (MH link), supernatural action comedy Occult Academy (MH link).
