Soon after, Motoya witnesses a giant tower suddenly appearing on the school grounds. According to his new classmates, the tower can only be seen by a handful of chosen people and that all the military technology that the country has been able to develop in recent years was based on the information gathered from inside the mysterious tower.

The mobsters corrupted the entire area, including the police by paying them off; Five Points was the mob’s territory and they were the law.

But even in Five Points, where there seemed to be nothing but robbery, prostitution and murder, showed some signs of hope. Luke Burns was a honest and righteous teenager who realized that the mob was the cause of the harsh lifestyle and that joining the mobsters would not bring him the American dream. But his older brother, Brad Burns, had become the assassin to the biggest mob group of Five Points, the Grave Diggers, a secret he kept from Luke for his own protection. Brad was known as the Grim Reaper and his reputation preceded him as a ruthless and skilled killer.

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:
Hito Hitori Futari was my favorite this week. Even past the life of the Prime Minister, I think there's a lot that can be done with that premise. Kanojo to Camera seemed like a neat capturing of the confusion of being a teenager, dealing with all the hormones, and trying to sort out your own feelings and identity.
Here's what vyc had to say:
Quote:
Green Blood - set in post civil war New York. I really like how it's set in Manhattan when mobsters ruled the towns. Lots of heavy action/violence but what kept me interested were the characters and the overarching plot line of finding their lost father.

Phi Brain Kami no Puzzle - I really like the idea of this series. Instead of the traditional physically powerful characters, they have characters that use their intelligence and brain power to overcome their opponents. It would be cool if the reader got a chance to solve the mystery too.

My opinion:
Nothing really is striking me as very different, although I guess I'm a little curious about the puzzle in Phi Brain.


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