Beautiful People Perfect World (ビュ－ティフルピ－プル・パ－フェクトワ－ルド)By:Demographics:
2 Volumes (Complete)Manga Details: HereTranslations: NoneScanlations: None
In the future, many arts and sciences have stagnated, but cosmetic surgery has been developed to the extreme. Now people can cheaply and easily change their appearance, not only to become more beautiful, but also to gain inhuman attributes, like cat ears or wings. The short stories in these volumes focus on various situations that arise as a result of this advanced technology. People can switch genders or change their apparent age, and some people also make themselves deliberately ugly. There are also highly regretted surgeries, such as the otaku who makes himself into an anime character, or those who take 'bigger is better' a little too far to the extreme in modifying their sexual characteristics. It is a strange new world of cosmetic surgery, and there are many stories to be told!Thanks go to tethysdust for the summary.

Inugai Hajime is a student at the H University medical school, and he dreams of becoming a clinical doctor. However, for some reason, he's been assigned to work in a forensic medical science lab, under a weird, but incredibly skilled, associate professor called Kiriyama Yuki. Hajime hadn't expected his 'patients' to be corpses undergoing autopsy, and he most certainly didn't expect the first case he attended to with Kiriyama would be the apparent suicide of a girl he knew. During their investigation of the case, Hajime also began to see flashes of the dead girl, as if she had come back to life for mere moments. Will Hajime be able to handle his time in forensic medicine, and work his way back to having living patients? Thanks go to tethysdust for the summary.
Note to all scanlators:
If you recently started scanlating a new manga series (with about 5 or less chapters released) and would like your manga to be shouted out in the next New Manga Shout Out, then please PM me. Please include:
- The name of the manga series
- A summary of the series
- Publishing Status (+ Number of Volumes/Chapters)
This is what tethysdust said this week:
Shikatsushi looks like it could be pretty interesting. There's all kinds of stories to tell with forensic medicine. Futari no Table was incredibly sad, but it was a really sweet story as well.
Here's what DrCoke had to say:
All three of the mangas I summarized were promising. I just wish Ryuma was told in a more continuous fashion, instead of jumping from one character to another.
My opinion: Beautiful People Perfect World
might be an interesting read on how far someone will go with cosmetic surgeryTranslated items that need some love/scanlation:myao
