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:
Hensokukei Quadrangle seems like it will shape up to be a pretty complicated story, since changing the past is never as easy as it might seem. Happy Sugar Life was far more interesting and disturbing than I would have guessed from the art and the title. I'm not sure I'm convinced the mix between horror-exploration and ero-game works for Kuro-senpai to Kuroyashiki no Yami ni Mayowanai, it seemed kind of awkwardly combined to me.
My opinion: Happy Sugar Life
