An exorcist has just finished defeating a demon, when one comes falling out of the ceiling. However, she's nothing like the sexy, dangerous demon he had just faced.

Instead of killing the demon, the exorcist is moved by pity to buy her some food. Now she's determined to tag along with him, eager to do anything she can to be useful!

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:
  1. The name of the manga series
  2. A summary of the series
  3. Publishing Status (+ Number of Volumes/Chapters)

This is what tethysdust said this week:
Tanuki de Pon was a very simple and cute comedy. Gentle-Kun was also a comedy, but of the silly, over-dramatic sort. Tenraku Akuma Demon's Core might have the most promise of the three. There's quite a lot of ecchi-ness, but I think the story was a neat idea.
Here's what DrCoke had to say:
E-robot might have some potential. The characters are like-able, and if they author can make creative use of the 'fighting with errors' idea, the battle portion might actually be interesting.
The other two... were very uninteresting.

My opinion:
Personally, this week didn't particularly appeal to me that much, but each manga would appeal to different demographics...
Akuma to Ore is good for those wanting a supernatural and more adult-ecchi manga that lasts just for one volume.
E-Robot - If you want a more PG-13 type of ecchi and don't want to invest that much time into it with some action thrown in, then this would be the one-shot for you.
Gentle-kun is for those of you wanting a silly one-shot.
Houkago of the Dead - Those wanting to get into the zombie craze may want to check out this one-shot about zombies~
Tanuki de Pon! - Want to check out a transforming tanuki/raccoon and watch its interactions with a girl, then this is up your alley. It'll appeal to the slice-of-life crowd~
Tenraku Akuma! Demon's Core - another manga that'll appeal to the ecchi reader, but more comedy thrown in than the other two.

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: school life action manga Demon Possession (MH link), supernatural mystery Bungou Stray Dogs (MH link), sci-fi action manga Daikusei Kuuki Heishidan (MH link), sci-fi comedy Renai SLG (MH link).
