20 year old Kansuke Sudou was “casually” jacking off while looking at a porn site when the site suddenly changed into a completely different site, which asked, “What kind of magic ‘sword’ do you desire?” Being true to the mood he was in, Kansuke typed “sex” and was warped into the screen. When he woke up, he was in an unknown world and was met by a lady warrior, Yuno Argracia, who was in search of the “Sword of Light” that could cleanse the soul of girls who have become “demonics.” This sword is in Kansuke’s possession, but it's in the form of his penis, which requires him to have sex with the “demonics” in order to cleanse them. Is this a blissful dream come true or will it become a journey he’ll regret?

Agano Kokage is the oldest daughter in a 'ghost family.' Her family is supposedly half-spirit and half-human, and Kokage inherits the family's powers on the day she turns 14. She can now see ghosts, along with other abilities, which her mostly ineffectual grandmother's ghost attempts to teach her about. Long ago, her ancestors were able to travel freely between the physical and spirit world, but Kokage's grandmother's ghost tells her that if she allows herself to shift into a spirit, she can never come back to life.

However, Kokage proves her grandmother wrong, when her childhood friend (and possibly crush), Toshiaki, successfully pulls her back into the physical world after she accidentally becomes a ghost. Kokage's ability attracts her another mentor, a highly skilled 'ghost family' woman called Shiine. Now Kokage faces a daily struggle to develop and learn how to control her abilities, and to deal with all the complications of middle school life, such as her confusing relationship with Toshiaki.

“Sex Industry.” What an arousing phrase. Men of all kind look forward to nights that are filled with excitement. But there are some men who take it a step further and make their excitement reach new heights. They are able to do this by taking control of the sex industry into their own hands. They're known as “Sex Industry Managers.” In the Sex Industry, there are all kinds of businesses, such as love hotels, Image clubs, and no-panties shows.

One such business is the massage parlor “Swan of the Lake,” run by a man who rose from a mere employer to an exquisite manager. A massage parlor is a location of light prostitution, usually disguised as a common parlor, such as a spa or sauna. But, as many may know, the life of a prostitute does not blossom with the flowers of joy and bliss. In this story, under the narration of the manager, you get to follow each prostitute and understand what true hardships each of them face, whether it is a social conflict with one’s workplace or an emotional trauma with a past boyfriend

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:
Tsukumo Nemuru Shizume was my favorite this week. The art was nice, and I liked the juxtaposition of the late 1800s and the supernatural. Contractor M & Y was a high energy shounen. Kui Tan was pretty funny, and I thought it was kind of neat how they worked food into the solving of mysteries.
Now for Midori-Mori's take on his manga:
Quote:
Though I don't think this will have much importance to you readers, but I'm a new 'shouter' for these manga shout-outs. I was truly surprised by the series I was able to read about for this shout-out.

Yet, even with all the surprises, I was able to find interest in them all. The one I might recommend the most would probably be Fuuzoku Tenchou Monogatari. Though I can't gurantee its artwork 100%, the way how it portrays each of the girls' hardships absorbed my attention with all its mature dialogue and seriousness. But if you're searching for the more humorous type of 'mature' series, Blade Play may be your pick.

My opinion:
I'm slightly interested in seeing how they incorporate food and solving a mystery in Kui Tan. I'm also curious as to how Shizume's dreams in Tsukumo Nemuru Shizume are related to her father's disappearance and what she does while she dreams.
