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:

  3. Publishing Status (+ Number of Volumes/Chapters)

This is what tethysdust said this week:
Parthenon-kun will be nice for fans of ridiculous, over-the-top comedy. Illegal Rare has an interesting twist on the idea of supernatural creatures, where they're just trying not to be hunted down and killed off. It seems like an idea that might work well to support a long-running story. The Meldina story is described as "Russian Steampunk," and it seems like it also has a lot of potential.

My opinion:
Illegal Rare - a new series in Jump from the mangaka who made Nurarihyon no Mago. Expect more nice art and supernatural action in this one, if the mangaka continues in the same realm as the last manga~
Kikai Shikake no Meldina - sound interesting with the mysterious aspects. I'm probably the most interested in this manga.
Kyou no Cerberus - good for those wanting a romantic comedy type manga.
Rokujouma no Shinryakusha!? - based on a popular light novel - If you're a fan of magical girls, then this manga if for you~
Seikaiisan Taisen Parthenon-kun - If you're looking for a short school life comedy one-shot, then you should this one out.
Wonderful Wonder World - On the other hand, if you're more in the mood for a short action/comedy one-shot, then you should check out this one-shot instead.

Translated items that need some love/scanlation:
myao - Circle Game: Chapter 1
persona_1 - Mahou Shoujo Pretty Bell: Chapter 1
Bomber D Rufi - Nejimaki Kagyu: Chapter 1-5
kinlyu - Samurai Flamenco - Another Days: Chapter 1

If you haven't done so already, check out the scanlations of the mangas from previous shout outs which have been recently scanlated: ecchi comedy Nanako-san Teki na Nichijou Dash!! (MH link), sci-fi action comedy Daikusei Kuuki Heishidan (MH link).
