Island No. 5 is a chaotic place said to have the highest population density in the world. On this island, the police force is just a decoration and the four crime syndicates act as police over each of the four zones the island is divided into. Because of this, only the people who score the lowest on the police academy exam are sent to this lawless island so that they may just leave things be.
Meet Inada Daigo, a 17-year-old newbie just assigned to this island. His strong sense of justice makes him pick a fight with the mafia ruling over the northern region, where he was assigned to, on his first day. Now he will carve his name in Island No. 5's history as the strongest rookie policeman ever. [Eru13]Thanks go to Eru13 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:
Magicalo Magicaru would be good for people who like parodies of magic girl stories, though parts of it are pretty serious. My description of Saya is based on only the first two chapters, but it seems like it will be an action-filled story so far. Noboru Kotera-san is a much calmer story, and pretty much all of the ecchi content is just from boys watching Kotera climbing.
Engraver was the most interesting to me this week, and I'm curious to see if they will be able to keep Yuiko alive. Jittan no Jitan Recipe might be good for people who want tips on cooking Japanese food quickly. Tokumei no Kanojotachi kind of seemed like a tour of the kinds of adult entertainment available in various areas of Japan, so it would be good for people who are interested in that.
My opinion: Dai Go Tokusou
- If you're wanting to see a newbie policeman fight against the mafia, then you should check this manga out.Engraver - Toki no Yugami o Kiru Mono
- If, on the other hand, you are in the mood for some action, then you may find this manga a bit more to your taste.Jittan no Jitan Recipe
- If you like manga about cooking, then you should check out this manga then.Kanojyo wa Rokurokubi
- However, if you're in the mood for a romantic comedy, then you may find this a better fit, especially since there are already 3 chapters scanlated.Magicalo Magical
- If you want something a little more supernatural, then this might be what you should check out instead.Noboru Kotera-san
- If you're looking for some ecchiness, then this is probably your best bet as you watch a girl go bouldering.REVOLT
- If you want some sci-fi mixed with your action, then you should take a look at this manga with one chapter already scanlated.Saya
- This is another manga that mixes in some ecchiness, but thrown in with some action. If that mix is what you want, then take a look at this manga as well.Tokumei no Kanojotachi
- If you want a more serious look at the adult entertainment industry (and you know you want some ecchiness), then this is probably a little more serious than the other ecchi series.Translated items that need some love/scanlation:myao
