Hadaka no Taiyou (ハダカノタイヨウ)
By: YOSHIKI Masakazu

Demographics: Shounen

Manga Details Page: Here
Translations: None
Scanlations: None

A+ student Ichinose Taiyo is the brains of his class. His grades are always high, he's generally liked by his classmates and everyone thinks he will get into a good college then onto a financially well-off career. But his life long dream that no one else, not even his family, knows about is to be a manga author, which realistically speaking has near impossible odds of working out. The reasons why he keeps it a secret is because he'd rather not try if he's more than likely to fail and also because he doesn’t want to end up like his classmate Anezaki Runa.

Runa is also aspiring to be a manga author but is obsessed with it to the point where everyone keeps a distance from her because of her anti-social and weird habits. But one day, Runa finds out about Taiyo’s secret and forces him to pursue his dream. Taiyo learns that throughout his life, he has cared too much about public perception which will continue to limit his ability as a manga author unless he opens himself up even if it means rejection. With Runa’s help, he learns to believe in his dream and show his true potential.

Convinced he's dreaming, he goes to the restroom to get his act together.

Unfortunately, its not a dream, and he arrives to find the creepy little girl repeatedly saying "magical" as she slaughters his friends and classmates. Soon, Kii and his childhood friend--a quiet, often-bullied girl called Tsukune-- are witness to the resurrection of their friends' corpses into a zombie-like murderous mob crying the single word "magical." Now Kii and Tsukune must try to endure with the other survivors, and try to find out what has happened to their world.

Tokitou Haruto, during his first year in middle school, lost all of his friends because of a Science Fiction novel he had read. He was so engrossed in the novel that he started calling men “Kei” and the ladies “Florlain,” which was spread throughout the school at that time. Unable to cope with the sudden exclusion, Haruto continued to isolate himself throughout his middle school years.

Now, as a first year high schooler, Haruto faces a new “problem.” One casual day at school, the classroom becomes perfectly still. Time has stopped again. Having experienced this time-stop multiple times, Haruto begins to wonder if this time-stop is actually a dream. But all of this doubt stops when he meets Sakazaki Kuon, someone else who knows and experiences the time-stop. She is also part of a team of members who defends the world from monsters who attack the world using this time-stop dimension: Kohakjal. What relation does Haruto have with a group who fends off time-stop monsters? Could it be that he's the only who can truly fight them off?

The world is filled with many strange events, from the horrific to the more exciting. But one city was “visited” by a single “egg” that held an unknown “demon,” which was investigated by many people of the world.

To end this havoc of suffering, the one existence directly related to the egg, the Dog-Lord, and a German lady who has transferred to the country for yet unexplained reasons, are the only ones who can do something to this “egg,” but what is this egg exactly?

This is what tethysdust said this week:
Quote:
There were lots of weird manga this week, but none really caught my interest. Saihate Arcade was the most interesting to me... pretty quiet, but lots of quirky characters with tragic stories.
Here's what vyc had to say:
Quote:
Love Riron - Liked this one the most this week. Main character who has no clue about talking and building chemistry with women hilariously starts doing so with the help of some random ghost. Inspiring (?) and funny.
Now for Midori-Mori's take on his manga:
Quote:
Another week has passed, and this weeks choice intrigued my soul. I looked at both titles, and thought of them boring at first, but I was wrong. Don't ever judge a book by its cover!

Trauma Ryoushi Kesshou is a supernatural series where the protagonist has to fight time-stopped monsters, which may sound cliche at times, but the background of each character of the story makes it worthwhile. Utsuro Fune May seem like a confusing horror series, but if you don't let your mind think too, too much, you'll fit loose ends. Hope this helps you readers understand these two series. ^.^


My opinion:
Not much really piqued my interest, althoughMahou Shoujo of the End sounds like it might be interesting even though the concept doesn't sound particularly new...


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: historical supernatural Devil Summoner: Kuzunoha Raidou Tai Kodoku no Marebito (MH link).

Mahou Shoujo of the End: A must read!!!
It's basically an epic HotD #2 just with magicals.
It's just plain awesome.

Same for Kanojotachi no Saishuu Teiri.
A must read for borderline fans. The MC totally rocks :)

Love Riron is also quite good, but relies my on it's plot (mass text) instead of fanservice, as that color page might indicate to. Pretty funny too with that Ghost :)

Hadaka no Taiyou has a misleading title. Pervs like me get lured in by the "hadaka/naked" and what do we get? A mangaka story with nothing naked at all and just 1-2 panty-shots T_T It's still kinda funny how desperate Runa is at times^^

i would also recommend Mahou Shoujo of the End the plot picks up pretty fast and it's packed with action and surprising plot twists...

I can't say much for the other series though since i haven't looked into them :/
