Akaneiro no Kaze (あかね色の風)By:Demographics:
1 Volume (Complete)Manga Details Page: HereTranslations: NoneScanlations: None
Starting in the year 1863, this manga retells the story of the Shinsengumi. There is a focus on Okita, who in this version of the story is an excellent swordsman that does not kill people. Instead, he strikes with the back of his sword, a practice that his friend Hijikata warns him will only cause him problems in the future. The thirteen young men of the Shinsengumi live through the tumultuous final years of the Tokugawa Shogunate.Thanks go to tethysdust for the summary.
Masou Gakuen HxH (魔装学園HxH)By:Demographics:
KUJI Masamune x AYAKAWA Riku
2 Chapters (Ongoing)Manga Details Page: HereTranslations: NoneScanlations: None
Hida Kizuna possesses the HHG (Heart Hybrid Gear) ability, but it is not strong enough to make him particularly important. His older sister calls him to transfer to a strategic defense school, where many of the students (many of which are large-breasted girls) use their HHG abilities to fight invaders from another world while wearing extremely skimpy pilot outfits. Kizuna's fighting ability doesn't measure up, but his sister has another plan-- apparently having erotic experiences with Kizuna will allow the girls to replenish their energy or power-up. It looks like his new school life is going to be full of embarrassment!Thanks go to tethysdust for the summary.
Yonaki no Shiireenu (夜鳴きのシィレエヌ)By:Demographics:
3 Chapters (Ongoing)Manga Details: HereTranslations: NoneScanlations: None
In this world, there are sirens who are able to control spirits through their singing, an ability which can be used for great good or evil. Haine is one of these sirens, though she has little confidence in her abilities. When she runs from her master one day, she meets a young woman named Madorasu who has escaped from her wealthy home. Soon, Haine learns the real reason Madorasu had been kept locked away... The manga continues with the story of the sirens, Haine and others who are a part of her life.Thanks go to tethysdust for the summary.

This is what tethysdust said this week:
My favorite this week was Akaneiro no Kaze-- it was fun to read such an old-style manga (it's from 1995), and bakumatsu is a pretty interesting time period. Yonaki no Siren has a pretty neat magic system, so it would be interested to see how it is developed in future chapters. Masou Gakuen would be good if you're in the mood for a manga that has a lot of focus on fan service.
My opinion: Akaneiro no Kaze
- If you like reading historical manga, then you may find this interesting, although it's only one volume long and may not have much closure...Masou Gakuen HxH
- If you're in the mood for ecchi situations and some action, then you may want to take a look at this manga...Yonaki no Shiireenu
- However, if you're in the mood for some supernatural spirits, then this may pique your interest...Translated items that need some love/scanlation:myao
- Circle Game

- Mahou Shoujo Pretty Bell
