Gokusai
By: SARUWATARI Tetsuya

Demographics: Seinen
Status: 1 Volume (Ongoing)
Manga Details: Here
Translations: None
Scanlations: None

Art equals expression, an expression creating an outer form, expressing joy, sorrow, and the darkness of the soul. Yutou Riro is a student at an art college, but she believes she lacks the talent to truly succeed as an artist. Entering her life through a series of coincidences is Karaba Jo. To Riro's astonishment, Jo has an exceptional ability to draw the "real" self of the people/object he draws. His artwork draws attention to the finest details of his subject, bringing to light the truth behind each individual.

Himitsu - The Genesis (秘密 Genesis 創世記)
By: SHIMIZU Reiko

Demographics: Shoujo
Status: 3 Chapters (Ongoing)
Manga Details Page: Here
Translations: None
Scanlations: None

This manga seems to be a spin-off prequel of the manga "Himitsu," which is about solving murder cases by using new technology that allows the viewing of memories in dead people's brains. This story occurs years earlier, in 2045, when the technology was just being developed. Ten years earlier, Maki Tsuyoshi's parents died in a fire. Following the fire, he has lived with his legal guardian, Sawamura Satoshi, whose face was burned off saving Tsuyoshi from the flames. Tsuyoshi is certain that his parents were murdered, but he has few clues to help him find their killers. They met with people that evening, but he can't remember their faces, only a certain symbol. That symbol is associated with a powerful secret society at Tokyo University, known as "Premium." Tsuyoshi enters Tokyo University, but he isn't invited to join the society, despite his top credentials. Instead, they invite the more social runner-up Suzuki Katsuhiro to join their ranks. Tsuyoshi approaches Katsuhiro in an attempt to get him to help check out the organization, and the two of them try to uncover what happened on that night so many years ago.

(ミッドガルドの守護者 ~Re-Birth of Norse Mythology~)

By: NADATANI Wataru

Demographics: Shounen

Translations: None
Scanlations: None

In this story of Norse mythology, humanity's world of Midgard is caught up in a war between two of two powerful divine races, the Jotunn and the Aesir. Humans can't stand against them, due to the godly 'Megin' power of the divine races. The Jotunn see conquering Midgard as the first step toward attacking the home of the Aesir, and they slaughter many humans along the way. The Aesir step in to rid Midgard of the Jotunn and protect the defenseless humans. One of these Aesir, Thor, made his home base in a certain grateful human town.

In this town lives a young boy named Soah, who lost his parents in a Jotunn attack. He idolizes Thor and dreams of one day becoming strong enough to fight Jotunn and protect people. Thor enjoys Soah's childish enthusiasm, and the two of them share a warm friendship. One day, a Jotunn invading the town uses Soah as a human shield. Thor protects the town, but at the cost of the life of his young friend. Unwilling to let the strong-hearted boy die, Thor bestows his Megin upon Soah and vanishes. After much training, the now-powerful Soah begins to realize his dream, fighting against the Jotunn in Thor's place!

Manga Details Page: Here
Translations: None

Tsukuyomi Sasami lives her daily life by leaving her house as little as she can. She lives with her older brother who teaches at the exact school she is supposed to be attending. Why is she allowed to stay at her house 24/7 and skip school constantly? Because her brother has an almost stalker-like obsession over her. He will do anything and everything to keep her happy. The odd part is that Sasami's daily routine is to stalk her brother after he leaves the house. Their daily lives are filled with oddly obsessive humor and a lack of sanity.

The story begins where he has to go to a whole new school, which means new classmates. He lacks any confidence to make new friends, so the fear of rejection drives him into a wish he never thought he would make. This single wish leads to a first day of class he would never forget.

This is what tethysdust said this week:
Quote:
The Midgard one was probably my favorite this week. From the first chapter, it has a lot of aspects of a typical shounen, but it looked like it would have an interesting continuing story. Himitsu the Genesis also seemed promising, as a relatively slowly developing mystery (with ~70 page chapters). I got some vibes that it might go a bit shounen-ai, but I haven't read the earlier work (Himitsu), so I don't know if I'm imagining things or not.
Here's what DrCoke had to say:
Quote:
No comments this time.

My opinion:
Shounen Y kind of piqued my interest. I'm curious to see what changes he has to overcome and what he wished for...
