When Fujiwara Motomu was first introduced to live rock music, he decided it was amazing and he wanted to be a part of it! He ran into a band member from "Blue Bears" (the band he first saw live) at a convenience store, and begged the band member to let him join. The band member told him that if he could get the top rank at the Japan Academy of Music (J.A.M.), he could join them.

Fujiwara (nicknamed Fuji Cue) immediately started practicing guitar, and somehow managed to pass the entrance exam for the J.A.M.. At the entrance ceremony, he found that he would be paired with another student, and they would be required to give a live performance at the Welcome Convention. His partner, Hoshikawa Uta, is an incredibly talented girl, who suffers from crippling stage fright. Will they make it through their live performance, and will he be able to achieve his dream of getting to the top?

Ten years ago, a black shape appeared in the sky and destroyed the city below. Kagerou and Momiji were children when the destruction took place, and they have grown together into teenagers beneath the mysterious structure. There is an undeniable attraction between these two friends, but Kagerou is hesitant to confess his feelings because he feels that he is too weak to protect her.

One day, the structure acts again, sending down strange balls that eat people and transform them into monsters. Kagerou and Momiji's encounter that day changes them forever. Kagerou is taken into an organization that explains to him that he is now an 'ember,' and Momiji is a non-human "dross," useful only as experimental material. Kagerou can't accept this, though, and is determined to do anything in his power to protect the girl he loves.

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:
There were some good ones this week. In Hiniiru, I am really curious what's going to happen with the central couple, but it seems like it can only have a sad ending with that set up. Fuji Cue's Music was pretty funny, and it seems interesting to see how Motomu and Uta make their way through this unconventional school. Ninkoi is the one for fans of ecchi and awkward (often accidental) nude situations.
Here's what DrCoke had to say:
Himejou is very unique. It'll tickle the fancy of people that might like Japanese history, especially regarding the war period and the Japanese castles.

Kami no Kuni has stunning artwork and looks to have a very expansive world ahead of it.

Ane Kurabe is a new take on a harem manga. The girls really want the boy.

My opinion:
Ane Kurabe - If you're into harems and ecchi manga, then you might as well check out this manga.
Fuji Cue!!! Fuji Cue’s Music!! - I'm a bit interested to see how and if the boy is able to perform well and join the band. If you're into musical manga, then you should take a look at this.
Himejijou Living Dead - On the other hand, if you're into horror, and historical settings, then this may be more your cup of tea.
Hiniiru - If you like sci-fi and a romance story, then this manga may appeal to you.
Kami no Kuni - This is from the mangaka of Defense Devil, so if you like action in historical settings, then this would definitely appeal to you.
Ninkoi - Karenbo Hichou - If the combination of hot ninja girls + action + ecchi situations sounds like your kind of manga, then you should take a look at this manga.

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
