17 year old Nowaki Asunaro has been forsaken by fortune since his birth. Every step he takes, bad luck awaits, whether it takes the shape of a falling bucket of water on his head or being blamed for crimes he never committed. Even for an exceptionally unlucky fellow like him, he still hopes to become friends with the love of his life: Hashihime Banri. The only problem lies in the fact that every time he almost gets close to her, his lack of luck blocks the way.

On one typical day for him, filled with unfortunate accidents, he ends up having to protect himself from the rain in a forsaken and dilapidated temple. He becomes feverish from cold and hunger, but in desperation, he prays to the gods that he survive this day and become friends with Banri. Lo and behold, it seems like he accidentally summoned a God(?). Will this accident bring him the luck he never had?

Shishikura Shigure is an ordinary high school student, who is into gal games, figures, and late night anime. He tends to be pretty oblivious of most of his actual surroundings, particularly at school. Since his parents have gone overseas for work, his childhood friend Koyomi has taken charge of caring for him. One Wednesday, one of Koyomi's friends is missing, and she seems overly concerned. She explains to Shigure that one month ago, a student at their school threw herself in front of a train. On every Wednesday since then, a girl at their school has killed herself. She warns him not to get involved, but Shigure decides to look for Koyomi's friend.

Shigure ends up at the scene of the crime, where he sees a darkly mysterious girl who claims she can peek into people's memories. Shigure learns later that she is the student council president, but why was she so cavalier about her classmate's death? Could she be involved, and will Shigure be able to stop this string of supposed suicides?

Translations: None
Scanlations: None

Since their mother's death, sisters Tomoe and Mikage have been mostly raising each other. The older sister, Tomoe, is determined to get good grades and work her way into a good college. However, she's disturbed by the trouble Mikage sometimes gives her. For instance, at the beginning of the manga, Mikage sneakily locks a collar around her older sister's neck, forcing her to go through the day wearing it. Mikage wants Tomoe to think only of her, and her affection may be beyond sisterly love. However, at school, Mikage has made a new female 'friend' that has a serious crush on her. The two sisters have their separate lives at their respective schools, but their life together and their relationship may be most important of all.

This is what tethysdust said this week:
Quote:
Kiitarou Shounen no Youkai Enikki was pretty neat. It seems like a children's book designed to introduce creatures from Japanese folklore. There were a few I'd never heard of before! NOeSIS - Uso o Tsuita Kioku no Monogatari had a pretty exciting start, too.
Here's what DrCoke had to say:
Quote:
Gamurakan was really hard to summarize... It's horrific and downright weird, but it's captivating.

My opinion:
Out of the bunch, NOeSIS - Uso o Tsuita Kioku no Monogatari definitely piqued my interest, although it reminds of a mash-up of other manga. Hopefully someone scanlates it~



Translated items that need some love/scanlation:
myao - Circle Game: Chapter 1
