Harvest March (ハーベストマーチ)By:Demographics:
5 Chapters (Ongoing)Manga Details Page: HereTranslations: NoneScanlations: None
In a small village by a forbidden forest, the siblings Noie and Kubante live together peacefully. Noie is more of a mother than an older sister to Kubante, and she is loved by the village for her industriousness and bright personality. She loves Kubante very dearly, but he's little and weak. He's unable to do as much work as many of the other boys, and he is mocked for it by the villagers.
One day, an older boy named Shido invites him and some other children to come into the forest, with the promise that they will be changed. The change is much more brutal than any of the children could have foreseen. The powerful monster that Kubante becomes in the depths of that forest is no longer human, though he remembers his love for his sister. The other children lose their humanity completely, and use their deadly new power in an attempt to murder all humans for the monstrous 'mother' that gave them rebirth. Kubante's loyalty will always be to his beloved sister, so he must stand against the others who want to see her, and all humans, dead.Thanks go to tethysdust for the summary.

Dr. Ranmaru might seem a little too lighthearted and lecherous for a doctor, but he becomes dead serious when it comes to the health of his patients. No one knows, though, that he has another goal after hours. He heals his patients during the day, and he helps to repair society by night-- by 'surgically' removing bad people. His usual targets are those that have harmed his daytime patients. After Dr. Ranmaru saves the life of her grandfather, the school girl Maria begins to work part-time at his office. As Maria gets to know Dr. Ranmaru, will she learn his dangerous secret?Thanks go to tethysdust for the summary.

This is what tethysdust said this week:
Harvest March most caught my attention this week. It seems set up to have lots of super-power battles, but I especially liked the interaction between the characters. However, it is extremely violent for a shounen.
None of the manga really seems to interest me... ^^;;Translated items that need some love/scanlation:myao
- Circle Game
: Chapter 1persona_1
