Chikyuu no Houkago (地球の放課後)By:Demographics:
6 Volumes (Complete)Manga Details: HereTranslations: NoneScanlations: None
Most of humanity has been wiped out by mysterious dark monsters known only as "Phantoms." Four survivors, who may well be the last of the human race, have found one another and are sharing a quiet, peaceful existence. These survivors are a kind, dependable teenage boy called Masashi, two teenage girls, shyer Sanae and bolder Yaeko, and a little girl called Anna. They feel as though they're just living in a perpetual "after school" state, waiting for the rest of the human race to come home. As they pass their days together, they begin to see some strange things and find that the monsters have not yet left the Earth. Will they discover what really happened to their planet?Thanks go to tethysdust for the summary.
Higanjima: Saigo no 47 Hiai (彼岸島 最後の47日間)By:Demographics:
12 Volumes (Ongoing)Manga Details Page: HereTranslations: NoneScanlations: None
This is a continuation of the story of Higanjima, featuring an isolated island surrounded by fish demons and a population of warring vampires and humans. Ryousuke, his girlfriend Kazumi, and his friend Yamaoka are shipwrecked by the fish demons and wash up on the shore of this cursed island. They soon encounter the inhuman cruelty of the vampires first hand, before Ryousuke is able to meet up with the human resistance. Ryousuke wants nothing more than to escape the island, but mainland Japan may not be safe for long. If the humans don't defeat the vampires soon, then the vampires will succeed in their plans to spread the virus to the mainland!Thanks go to tethysdust for the summary.
Seimei-san wa Ganbaranai (晴明さんはがんばらない)By:Demographics:
HOUJYOU Yutori x MICHIZUKI Kako
5 Chapters (Ongoing)Manga Details Page: HereTranslations: NoneScanlations: None
In this manga, the famous male onmyouji Abe no Seimei is actually a female college student, Abe Akirako, who was sent back in time from the Heisei (present-day) period to the Heian period (794-1185)! She doesn't really have any skills, but she uses the random modern stuff she had with her for the time slip to support her reputation as the genius onmyouji. Just after her time slip, she is picked up by Fujiwara no Michinaga, who takes her in (in her male, onmyouji identity) and becomes her ally in this new time period. From Abe's point of view, she's gone from NEET to elite, so maybe the Heian period isn't such a bad place to stay!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:
My favorite by far was Chikyuu no Houkago. It was really very peaceful for a post-apocalyptic manga, but there were hints of more serious things to come. The Higanjima sequel was very violent, but kind of an interesting story so far. Seimei-san wa Ganbaranai follows the recent trend of making historical figures into cute manga girls, so I imagine it would be fun for those who are into that.
I'm interested the most in finding out what happened in Chikyuu no Houkago
