When she woke up one morning, Isaka Asuha was in her neighbor and childhood friend Mizuki’s bedroom. There was nothing to be alarmed about except for the fact that she was the size of a Barbie doll. Having no idea how she shrank or how to return back to her normal size, the only person she could turn to and trust was Mizuki. But Asuha has bottled up feelings for her long time buddy and communicating her emotions has never come easy to her and often times, she just ends up yelling at him like a mother. Mizuki agrees to help her find a way back to her old life, but, in the meantime, he decides to have a little fun with her.

One of the most infamous criminals of this country is literally a monster. Vampire Zeo is immortal and invincible. He takes whatever he wants from whomever he wants whether it's from a company or even the government. And when the police or military or even seasoned assassins that specialize in monster killing go after Zeo, they all end up running away with their tails between their legs.

So when a young girl named Lin tells Zeo that she has come to make Zeo atone for his crimes, he laughs it off. However, Lin is from the Church, and, although she is weak, she uses a special spell that combines their souls together, making them essentially one person. Whatever pain she feels, he feels and if she dies, he dies too and vice versa. However immortal he may be, her death would mean his own demise and he has to protect her from those who want Zeo’s head on a platter. Her original mission from the Church was to make him stop his criminal activities, but when Lin learns that the Church wants him dead, she questions her orders and joins forces with Zeo until she learns the truth.

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:
Tokyou Jitensha Shoujo would be interesting for people into Tokyo or bicycling. It had some interesting information about both folded into the school-life story. I really enjoyed "Tsuki no Yoru...". I think it was really well-written with respect to portraying the emotional states of the characters. Bokura no Yoake seems to be a fun sci-fi story, as well, though I believe it is aimed at a slightly younger audience than the other two I've mentioned.
Here's what vyc had to say:
Quote:
I enjoyed reading the series this week. Lots of variety and fun mangas.

Pi - comedy around boobs, teenagers and romance. Very original concept in my opinion and the comedy is fresh and modern. Enjoyed reading it thoroughly.

Kai Pilgrim - another original storyline about invincible vampire and helpless priestess working together. I love the setting of the series and has a great lot of work with and feel incredible potential from this author/manga.

Sekai Maou - 4 koma manga comedy about hero vs demon lord but in a plot where both of them are pretty much harmless and innocent.

My opinion:
The idea to relate pi (the ratio between the circumference of a circle and the diameter) and a girl's breasts in π is pretty ridiculous. I'm surprised someone hasn't scanlated this manga yet. Sekai Maou sounds a bit cute. I'm a bit curious as to how the protagonist in Tsuki no Yoru Hoshi no Asa 35 Ans will pick up the pieces of her life. I would think the husband would've said something prior to being 5 years apart, if there were problems...


Translated items that need some love/scanlation:
myao - Circle Game: Chapter 1
persona_1 - Mahou Shoujo Pretty Bell: 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: ecchi comedy Haruwaka (MH link).
