Black Clover (ブラッククローバー)By:Demographics:
5 Chapters (Ongoing)Manga Details Page: HereTranslations: Chapter 1-5Scanlations: None
Aster and Yuno were abandoned together at the same church, and have been inseparable since. As children, they promised that they would compete against each other to see who would become the next sorcerous emperor. However, as they grew up, some differences between them became plain. Yuno was a genius with magic, with amazing power and control, while Aster could not use magic at all, and tried to make up for his lack by training physically. When they received their grimoires at age 15, Yuno got a spectacular book with a four-leaf-clover (most people receive a three-leaf-clover), while Aster received nothing at all. However, when Yuno was threatened, the truth about Aster's power was revealed-- he received a five-leaf-clover grimoire, a 'black clover' book of anti-magic. Now the two friends are heading out in the world, both seeking the same goal! Thanks go to tethysdust for the summary.

YAZU Miscio x AIDA Keito
3 Volumes (Ongoing)Manga Details Page: HereTranslations: NoneScanlations: None
A group of very different people wake up together in the sealed environment of an abandoned school building. They include the college students Yumi and Reiji, a cabaret girl named Akane, an occult-obsessed salaryman named Yukitoshi, a punk factory worker named Toshio, an unemployed pedophile named Taichi, and a 9-year-old girl named Michika. The building in which they find themselves has running water, no food, and a timer set for seven days. When they find a cleaver and a hot pot in an upstairs classroom, they begin to guess the intention behind their imprisonment; they're meant to kill and eat one another to survive. In principle, they should be able to survive just by waiting out the seven days in hunger, but nothing is ever that simple...Thanks go to tethysdust for the summary.

Tatsuko Sachi was a stupid girl who remade herself as a 'genius' at a prestigious school in order to be near the boy she liked, Oumi Shouta. When Shouta decided to make a club to build missiles, she then agreed to be vice president. However, Shouta slacks off and leaves most of the work to Sachi. This becomes worse when a child-like girl named Onda Midori shows up, and Shouta spends all his time doting on her. Not even having super powers makes this situation easier to handle. The manga follows with their stories and the stories of the other missile club members.Thanks go to tethysdust for the summary.

This is what tethysdust said this week:
Dokumushi was my favorite this week, though I'd have to warn that it is pretty graphic. The idea is not a new one, but the variety of characters make the story interesting. I only had the first two chapters of Holy Holy, but it seems like it has potential. Missile to Plancktone was not really my style. Black Clover seemed like a very standard battle shounen, but the story has been a fun one so far.
My opinion: Black Clover
- If you're in the mood for an fantasy adventure manga, then you would like this manga, despite people comparing it to Naruto...Doku Mushi
- If you like survival-type manga with the chance for the people to turn on each other and possibly resort to cannibalism, then this manga may pique your interest.Duel
- If you're interested in fencing, then you may want to check this out since there's already one chapter scanlated.Holy Holy
- If you like Lord of the Flies/Cast Away but with girls, then you may like this manga.Missile to Plancktone
- If you want to know what it's like to build missiles in a club, then this may be more to your taste...Yakushoku Distpiari - Gesellshaft Blue
