+ posted by c_k in Shout-Outs on Mar 18, 2013 06:37

Welcome to the next New Manga Shout Out. This weekly article introduces you to manga that are new and/or have not been scanlated yet. This week features an otaku who might get a girlfriend, the Count of Monte Cristo, and a nurse-in-training. Remember, if you like any of the series, favorite them. Don't forget to also thank the various people who feed your manga addiction. ^_^ Translators and Scanlators, please check out these series and see if you can spread some more manga love~

We're still looking for people who know Japanese and want to help write summaries for our manga database and for the shout out. Please PM me if you want to help out. Now onto the series~


3D Kanojo (3D彼女)
By: NANAMI Mao

Demographics: Shoujo
Status: 4 Volumes (Ongoing)
Manga Details: Here
Translations: None
Scanlations: None

Tsutsui Hikari is an otaku, and he mostly avoids social life. Hikari has only one friend at school, who is also a social misfit, and he is mocked brutally by most of his classmates for being creepy and weird. One day, he ends up having to clean the school pool with Igarashi Iroha, who appears to be pretty much everything he hates in real-life girls. She skips school, has a blunt manner, doesn't have female friends, and seems the sort to be promiscuous. However, she is friendly to Hikari, and even stands up to the people who make fun of him. Hikari's bitterness and trust issues lead him to say pretty harsh things to Iroha, but she never dismisses him as creepy. After a while, it starts to look like Iroha may become his first real-life, 3D girlfriend! Will he be able to handle it?

This is what tethysdust said this week:
Quote:
3D Kanojo had some really interesting, believable characters. Ns Aoi Those Days seemed like a good story, though it starts out incredibly sad.

My opinion:
3D Kanojo seems like it might be interesting - to see an otaku really get a girlfriend. It might be interesting to read Monte Cristo in manga form~
