Nanase Kyouya is an ordinary teenage boy, who moved in with the girls Igarashi Kyouka and Yuma after the death of his parents. Yuma is a "Sai Taker," but Kyouka is an "Original Taker." One day, he goes with them to see a new model under testing of a magical device, based after Kyouka's.

Scanlations: Chapter 1

Inaba Yuushi's parents died in his first year of middle school, and he moved in with his relatives. Though they did care for him, he could tell he was a burden. After he graduated, he happily prepared to move to a high school with a dormitory. Unfortunately, the dormitory burned to the ground before he could move in! Yuushi doesn't want to live with his grudging relatives, but it's rough finding lodging as an orphaned student with little money. He finally finds a room in a nice old building which seems too good to be true.

The catch is that it is a Monster House, a place where humans and supernatural creatures--ghosts, mononoke, etc.-- live together. Another high schooler lives there, a cute girl named Akine, and she's completely unfazed by the monsters. In fact, she can even exorcise evil spirits! Yuushi's high school life just got much stranger than he ever bargained for!

This is what tethysdust said this week:
Quote:
The NEET Onna manga had some good stories. Not much else interested me this week.
Here's what vyc had to say:
Quote:
Ben To Zero Road to Witch - such a ridiculous concept and i was expecting it to make a comedic turn but the characters are all super serious about saving a couple bucks off their dinner. Prequel/origin story to Ben To. Something harmless and sorta stupid like half off bento + action genre with special attacks = winner?

Maou Sama - I like this style of comedy and I breezed through the chapters and wanted more. I dont know what else to say besides I really really like this series and recommend anyone to read it.

My opinion:
Ben・To zero Road to Witch sounds like a mix of Extreme Couponing and Fight Club or something?


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