This is what tethysdust said this week:
The stand-out this week for me was Jotei Yuna. I'm pretty sure I've read first-chapters of stories with a similar premise, but the intrigue in this one made it really easy to get pulled into the story. I found it kind of funny that the other two were both harem-type stories featuring a main character named Takeru. They seemed pretty generic to me, though.
Here's what DrCoke had to say:
Tsurami-sougo-kankei: I had a hard time understanding what made this manga interesting. It might be that many of the lingo used in this manga is a bit foreign to me.
Hito-kui: This one's very interesting. The author is taking his/her time revealing many of the secrets of these cannibalistic monsters, pushing you to read further. The main character is very lively and fun/funny.
Makia: I like how creepy this one can be, but at the same time being comical and/or erotic. If you like horror/ero-guro type mangas, this will be up your alley.
My opinion: Hito Kui
seems like it'd be pretty interesting for thosewanting to check out a new horror manga and finding out why such a monster exists...Jotei Yuna
is another manga about hostesses (since it's from KURASHINA Ryou, who has written many manga about the night world of hosts and hostesses like Jouou and Kurofuku Monogatari). If you want another manga about the night life, then this may interest you.Makia
is another horror manga this week with many people being killed off, but seems tied to a classmate. If you're looking to read the whole thing, then this one is for you since it's just a short 3 volume series.Melty Moment
- If you like manga based off of ero-games, and are in the mood for romance/ecchi scenes, then you should check this one out. If you're too impatient for the manga, then you can always check out the game...Suihanki Shoujo Komeko
is more on the slice of life/comedy side so would be perfect for someone looking to read a funny 4koma series.Tsurami Sougo Kankei
may be interesting to check out if you want to see someone stuck behind the computer venturing out into the real world of voice acting. Manga about voice acting isn't new, but it may be a different take on the industry~Translated items that need some love/scanlation:myao
