A class is chosen to participate in a special government project, designed to reverse the trend of declining academic ability in the younger generation. They head out together to an unusual school camp. The students know nothing about what the program will entail, and are surprised to find that it involves playing a class-wide game of a modified version of "Old Maid," with the joker as the losing card. There are incredible incentives toward winning the game, but the penalties for losing, or for not playing at all, are correspondingly severe!Thanks go to tethysdust for the summary.

An isolated island is discovered, and its seemingly time-forgotten inhabitants are now being reintroduced into society. However, the truth is that the island was the hidden home of many supernatural creatures, and that it was actually the Onigashima of the legendary demon-fighting, peach-born Momotaro's adventure. Some of these demons seek to take their vengeance on the descendants of Momotaro. The Momotaro descendant, Momomoto Akira, is a middle school girl who reluctantly becomes a friend of one of the transfer students, and then soon becomes a target of the other vengeance-seeking demons!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:
I liked that Peach Pluck led me to learn the story of Momotaro. The Joker Game appears to also have several related jdramas, but it seems like a very standard premise. Ningen Karimenchuu is an award-nominated manga, so it's probably worth a look. It was pretty interesting, but I'm really not into the art style.
My opinion: Aoki Ao No Atopos
- looks like it might be an interesting mystery of how all those people disappeared...Joker Game
- If you like horror, then you might want to check this one out, although the game and school aspect isn't something new...Ningen Karimenchuu
- If you're in the mood for a more slice of life/drama type manga, then this may be for you. Following a couple with a person that suffers from schizophrenia is definitely different. I'd probably want to check this one out.Peach Pluck
- This one is more fantasy/comedy based and just a one-shot, so if you're looking for something short, then you should check this one out. Plus, it's translated by BDR, so it's gotta be worth checking out~ :) The drawing style kind of reminds me of Fairy tail...Translated items that need some love/scanlation:myao
