The emperor himself has come to fetch her, and he intends to make her his empress. To her surprise, he is actually someone she knows, a man who was sometimes among the masked secret agents! Now she will enter her new 'post,' and see if she can make it as a future empress!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:
The Junketsu no Maria Exhibition would be great for fans of the main story, who would like to see a little more of the characters. Tenjouura kara Douzo Yoroshiku kind of feels like it is based on a game, where the heroine has to make it to her 18th birthday to become an empress. It would be fun for people interested in stories about cross-class romance and people thrust into court intrigue, I think. Monochrome Teito Ninpouchou was a little silly for me, but it looks like the first two chapters are already scanlated. If you're interested, it's already there for you to check out!
My opinion: Junketsu no Maria Exhibition
- If you liked the prequel to it and are in the mood for a historical supernatural manga, then this short one volume manga may appeal to you.Monochrome - Teito Ninpouchou
- If you like Freezing and other action-type manga, then this is right up your alley.Tenjouura kara Douzo Yoroshiku
- On the other hand, if you're in the mood for romance in a historical setting with emperors and a soon-to-be empress, then you should check this out instead.Translated items that need some love/scanlation:myao
