A collection of 12 short stories (& one extra) by Yoshida Satoru. The first features a woman who quit her job one summer, and is trying to find a happier life.

Kagura Mio is the manager of her high school swim team. Three of the first year boys on her team, though, spend all their time bickering and mocking her idea of "teamwork." Then a fourth boy joins the team, who supports her idea of competing as a medley relay team. Each of the boys is extremely skilled in one of the four strokes--backstroke, breaststroke, butterfly and freestroke--but three of them insist that they are 'sharks' and won't swim together. Will she be able to get these skilled swimmers to work together as a team?

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:
12-renkyuu had some fun and varied stories. I get the feeling Ranhou could shape up to be a pretty interesting story-- it seems to be building up a complicated situation. Best Blue was nothing new, but probably fun for anyone who wants a short high school sports story.

My opinion:
12 Renkyuu - If you're interested in reading a volume of slice of life short stories, then you may want to check this out.
Best Blue - This one would be good for those who are a fan of swimming. I don't really think there are many manga about this sport so if you want to see the struggles of a team to work together (and you know, how that'll turn out), then check this one out.
Ranhou - On the other hand, if you like sci-fi and action, with a bit of mystery thrown in, then take a look at this one. This one probably interested me the most...
Shin Ishu Kakutou Taisen - Man vs beast, which would win? Well, if you want to find out who is the strongest, then this manga may be the one for you. The premise seems a bit silly, but since it's going strong at 10 volumes now, it might be wise to take a look.

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