One day, monsters, known as "Troubles," appeared and began indiscriminately attacking people. Sometimes they took the form of humans, and sometimes they simply looked like horrific monsters. However, at the same time, human beings known as "Traces" also began to appear. Despite being human, they had superhuman powers. Though they often fight the Troubles, many humans see them as just another threat.

Kamiyama Yu was born as a Trace, and he so terrified his parents with his power that they sent him away. Growing up alone and apathetic, Yu began hunting Troubles to train himself. One day, he was outmatched and nearly killed, and he ended up being taken in by a human girl, Akane, and her father. Yu didn't tell them he was a Trace, and let them believe instead that he was an ordinary human orphan. Now, for the first time, he has the opportunity to live with people who care for him, people who see him as a human and not a monster. Will he be able to protect his new family, and keep them from finding out what he is?

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:
I think Trace was probably my favorite this week. I think there's a lot they could do with that story. Jidaigeki Kessakusen might also be fun if you're really into stories about ritual vengeance.
Here's what vyc had to say:
Quote:
Kizuato - The mystery/horror/adult series. It really draws the reader in and makes you wanting more. The more you find, out the more questions you have. The little jabs of comedy mixed in with graphic scenes makes this a great series.

Shindere Shoujo to Kodoku na Shinigami - I really liked the concept of the story. The characters are really great especially the two main characters. I only read the first few chapters but it got me wanting to read more of what happens and how the characters change as they spend more time together.

My opinion:
Kizuato is the only manga that seemed to pique my interest. I'm curious how his dreams play into reality~


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