Note to all scanlators:

- The name of the manga series
- A summary of the series
- Publishing Status (+ Number of Volumes/Chapters)
This is what tethysdust said this week:
Shinkai seemed like a kind of generic school club story with everyday mysteries. KiriwoTerrible was kind of funny in the way it pointed out that "heroes" sure do a lot of collateral damage. ACCA seemed to have a very slow plot, and the art was not really a style I enjoy.
Here's what DrCoke had to say:
I loved Stealth Symphony. It does a fantastic job drawing a fantastic and unique world, and the characters are very lovable. The battle scenes look to be pretty top notch as well.
No really ecchi manga this week...ACCA - 13-ku Kansatsuka
- If you're a fan of Natsume Ono (mangaka of House of Five Leaves, Ristorante Paradiso) and don't mind the more slice of life/slower moving plot, then this manga is for you~D.D.D. - Devil Devised Departure
- If you're looking for a supernatural action manga, then this is for you...Kiriwo Terrible
is also another supernatural action manga, but more along the lines of comedy and the misunderstanding of the role of the big bad black monster.Shinkai Tsuzuri no Dokkairoku
would be a nice pick for those who want to read about school mysteries.Stealth Symphony
- on the other hand, this manga is for those who are in the mood for fantasy. Four chapters are already out and scanlated so it'll be easy for people to check it out.Tokyo Wonder Boys
is another new manga in Jump, but about soccer. The premise isn't that new (I swear I've read the same premise before) but if you like soccer (or football for non-Americans), then this manga is the one for you...Translated items that need some love/scanlation:myao
