Remember, if you like any of the series, favorite them. Don't forget to also thank the various people who feed your manga addiction. ^_^ Translators and Scanlators, please check out these series and see if you can spread some more manga love~

Ikkyuu realizes how important the temple is to the community and remembers the promise he made to his grandpa and takes a long shot: going to a loan company through a recommendation. There, a man named Kawachi agrees to pay off the large debt under one condition: Ikkyuu must participate in an underground fight club called the Clash Club where people watch and gamble online on a street fight with absolutely no rules. Ikkyuu must keep winning to save the temple and save his life that hangs by a thread with every fight.

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:
"Ore ga Heroine..." was a cool idea. It gives the writer a chance to use a bunch of very different stories and art styles in the same manga, and I think it could develop into something really fun. Heart-Boiled Papa also looked promising. It's not a new concept-- someone with no business being a parent ends up with a child they never new existed-- but those kinds of stories can sometimes be quite interesting.
Here's what vyc had to say:
Quote:
Couple feudal era - Oda Nobunaga/Tokugawa Ieyasu stuff for me. Personally, I dont like historical series especially with overused people like them. But if you like the history genre, check it out.

Ikkyuu - new series about an underground fight club with high school age teenagers. On the violent side but I enjoyed reading it. The new opponents he faces each time is interesting and I'm excited to see how he overcomes each fight.

My opinion:
Hmmm... Not really interested in anything this week... ^^;;


Translated items that need some love/scanlation:
myao - Circle Game: Chapter 1
paramitan - Ike! Danshi Koukou Engekibu: Chapter 1 | Chapter 2



If you haven't done so already, check out the scanlations of the mangas from previous shout outs which have been recently scanlated: supernatural comedy Sky Blue (MH link).

Bugs: Predator's Summer sounds like Ghost in the Shell AU fanfiction. But I still would love to read it!

Ore ga Heroine would be interesting to read, it sounds a bit like Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles, but a harem version.
