The female cosmetics industry is naturally dominated by women and Aura Cosmetics is no exception. The sales department consists only of young beautiful women and is the place where the few male employees in the company want to be. Unryu Toichiro is a new graduate who surprisingly gets placed into sales. He has a unique talent where his sense of smell becomes incredibly sensitive, as much as a dog, after he drinks alcohol. As he tries to learn the methods of becoming a great salesman, his co-workers slowly start to learn secrets that Toichiro doesn’t want them to know.

The story opens several years after a devastating war, where incredibly strong 'mechanical dolls' slaughtered many, many people. These robot weapons, which look exactly like humans, are still feared and hated. During a storm, Kuro finds one of these 'dolls.' She is nothing like the weapon he would expect, but is instead gentle, cheerful, and very eager to be of use to the people around her. She claims her name is Mayple, and she seems to be programmed as a maid and cook.

Soon, Kuro has set up a cafe for Mayple to run, where she can cook sweets and tea for everyone in town. It's going to be a rough road ahead of her, as many townspeople hate her on principle and will not shrink from violence against her. But maybe Mayple, who always keeps a sunny attitude, will be able to find a way through the prejudice and make a place for herself in the post-war world.

She reappears afterward, but seems changed for the worse in terms of personality. What has happened to her?

2) Gekkouchou ~Hyaku-nen no Koi~: A two-tailed tiger-striped cat is taken in by a girl called Mitsu and given the name Torakichi. Torakichi is no ordinary cat, and the love and tragedy between them may be strong enough to transcend a simple lifetime.

3) Friend Doll: Mizuno Sachi spends almost all of her time studying, thanks to her demanding parents, and she doesn't really have friends. There's a boy she likes at school, but it seems impossible to get close to him. Suddenly, her stuffed bunny, Mimi, starts showing up in her dreams to advise her through her teenage life. But what is Mimi's motivation for all this help?

4) Tonari no Yomi-san: There's an urban legend about a girl who killed herself as a teenager, "Yomi-san," due to her insecurity over her appearance. Supposedly, her father stuffed her body, and, in her quest to become beautiful, the body seeks to take parts from pretty girls. At one school, several pretty girls have been mysteriously injured. Could the culprit be the dead girl, Yomi-san?

5) Oni no Sumu Shima: Saki moves out to a rural area, where she has no friends. In her loneliness, she goes out to an uninhabited island, where she meets a new possible friend. He's a demon, but as Saki gets to know him, she finds him less and less frightening...

By: TAKATOU None

Demographics: Seinen
Status: 1 Volume (Complete)
Manga Details Page: Here
Translations: None
Scanlations: None

A tsukumo-gami is an artifact spirit, which comes into being for very old, and cherished objects. One day, a tsukumo-gami--later named Kyou--is born from an old mirror. Although she remains close to her mirror, she has the physical, movable body of a tiny, dark-haired girl. As she explores the world around her, she makes her first friend, a mouse!

Soon her mirror is bought by a girl who can actually see and speak with her, though she professes to have no particular interest in tsukumo-gami. In that way, Kyou and her mouse friend come to their new home, which is a store. Soon she finds another friend in the worker Akane, a girl who can't see her, but who finds her fascinating nonetheless. As Kyou's horizons expand, thanks in a large part to her discovering that she can travel through mirrors, she meets other new spirits and people!

Scanlations: Chapter 1

Tsubaki Tenji seems like a normal high school boy, but at night he secretly works as a detective! Though he pretends to be kind of dim and clumsy at school, he's very physically skilled, and he fights using 500 yen coins as projectiles. However, he's not working just because he wants to-- he's got to pay off his vanished father's ridiculously large debt. He works for the Muroto Investigative Agency, under Muroto Shino, and alongside Shino's teenage sister, Yuki. He's always sleepy during the day from working at night, but if the school finds out the truth he could end up expelled.

Unfortunately, his classmate Tachibana Kirin caught on to his act. She finds Tenji's true skills to be incredibly cool, and his work to be very exciting. As the price for her silence, she convinces the group to take her on as Tenji's assistant detective. Now she and Tenji are in this dangerous business together!

This is what tethysdust said this week:
Quote:
There were some nice manga this week. Shoujotachi no Kaidan was a good collection of stories, some of which were cute and some of which were disturbingly creepy. Mayple-san no Koucha Jikan was nothing like I expected. It actually seems to be a pretty serious story, and I'd be interested to see how it develops in the future. Tsukumo-gami Irimasenka was pretty cute, and School Wonder boy looks like it will continue to have some fun action sequences.
Here's what vyc had to say:
Quote:
Oda Nobuna no Yabou - historical comedy series of what if all the historical generals in the feudal era of japan were cute girls. Easy read with a general storyline following the actual historical events.

Drop Og - Hoodlums in street fights sorta series. The main character isnt the one really strong in fights, in fact, one of the weaker ones in the whole story but uses different sort of skills to survive in the plot.

My opinion:
Not much really popped out at me, although I might be most interested in checking outMayple-san no Koucha Jikan. It might be interesting to see how a doll designed for war, deals with the hatred around her.


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: sci-fi school life comedy Intel Senpai (MH link), romantic comedy Golden Time (MH link).
