11 Chapters (Ongoing)Manga Details Page: HereTranslations: NoneScanlations: None
16-year-old Takatsuki Yuuto has been lucky enough to already meet with success in the manga industry. After he wraps up his series, though, he's looking forward to moving away from manga and more fully experiencing high school life. Unfortunately, the day after he's supposedly done with manga, a favor to a fellow author ends up costing him one absence too many to pass his year at school.
Luckily, he has been offered a teaching position at a nearby manga school, though he will be teaching students that are above his age! The head of the school has agreed to help make his attendance problem vanish, since his grades were otherwise fine. Everything will work out, except that Yuuto does not get to leave the world of manga. To make things even more complicated, he has also run into the ghost of a manga author named Tennouji Akira, a young girl that only he can see, and she is now following him around! Will Yuuto be able to handle the new turns his life is taking?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:
Psycho Doctor Kai Kyousuke was a neat psychological drama. The first case mentioned actually ends up much more complicated than I expected. Rough Diamond was pretty good, but it kind of felt like they were cramming a little too much in with the ghost subplot. Nekota Biyori kind of reminded me of Garfield (though Nekota-san does not eat lasagna).
My opinion: Nekota Biyori
- If you like cat manga and slice of life, then this easy going manga may be for you.Psycho Doctor Kai Kyousuke
- On the other hand, this psychological drama may appeal to those wanting a little more seriousness in their manga and is only 4 volumes long.Rough Diamond - Manga Gakkou e Youkoso
- This manga appeals to me the most due to the comedy and although the subject of high school mangakas aren't new, this may turn out to be interesting to see how he gets stuck in the world of manga.Translated items that need some love/scanlation:myao
