Billionaire Tono Ryuichi, the President of Tono Foods Group, a giant food company, recently acquired two young female assassins from the Mexican cartel. Sui and Ai came from unimaginably poor childhoods and was given a choice between killing people or selling their body. They chose the former and went through an inconceivably extreme training and, at 17 years old, they have become one of the deadliest assassins in the world. They are absolutely obedient to their master and they are given the task of finding the killer that poisoned Ryuichi’s wife and child. They begin attending high school to blend into society and, at the same time, read and study which helps them become even more deadlier on the field. Sui and Ai encounter Matoba Imari who is a high school assassin herself and may be more skilled than both of them. But unlike the two, Imari just wants to lead a normal life. Whatever Imari wishes for her life is not their problem because the only thing Sui and Ai feeds on are bloodthirst and a challenge.

The mafia boss of the Iwashi family is a high school girl named Konomi Minoko. But don’t let her appearance fool you; she has done and seen things normal citizens can’t even imagine. Under her control are two assassins who have gained legendary status for their deadliness and ability to get any job done. Ishikawa Rushia, codenamed Baret, uses a modified handgun that uses a custom made hollow point bullet that explodes the target from the inside. Shirato Marin, codenamed Francesca, uses a original weapon that is a mix between a throwing axe and battle axe. Both of them are Minoko’s high school classmates and seem like normal teenagers but are two of the most feared killers in the mob world who handle missions often involving other assassins and underground groups.

This is what tethysdust said this week:
Quote:
Only one that really caught my interest this week was thee Wyatt Earp story. There was something cool about seeing a Japanese take on the wild west, and the story was very exciting.
Here's what vyc had to say:
Quote:
Hop Step Jump - rom-com with fairly interesting/original plot. One middle aged man's quest to get laid by high school girls. Little weird when you stop and think about it but the comedy keeps it lighthearted and easy to read

Trash - the drawing style makes you believe the series wont be very graphic but lots of chopped body parts and blood/gore. Sort of refreshing in a weird sense. Had a lot of fun reading it.

Destro - An assassin series with lots of blood and people dying as you would expect. Nothing special but kept me interested long enough.


My opinion:
Destro 246 piqued my interest. I'm curious as to how they'll solve the mystery of who poisoned his wife and daughter. Dunamis 15 sounds like another interesting mystery story from 5pb. If you liked Sundome, Hop Step Jump! should be up your alley since it's from the same mangaka.


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: school life romantic comedy Horimiya (MH link).
