Scanlations: None

Two years ago, Akagi Kei's older brother Keiichi, who was a policeman with a bright future ahead of him, mysteriously vanished. The police eventually closed the case, but they never found any sign of what happened to her brother. After that, Kei was very busy as the oldest child in the house, especially since her mother worked nights, so it took her a while to recognize a strange new voice that was calling to her...

It was her brother, or at least her brother's skeletal ghost. Now she knows that her brother is dead, but she doesn't know how or why. He seems lost and confused, and says that he has come from a dark forest full of the dead that have a grudge against the living. For his part, as in life, he wants to help people and to protect his little sister Kei. Kei is just starting in a prestigious high school, where it seems that there is more than a fair share of supernatural darkness creeping into the student body. Kei and her brother use the skills of the living and the dead together to solve the mysteries behind her schoolmates' problems. Perhaps one day, Kei will also be able to solve the puzzle of her brother's death.

Ryuune Sakura is repeating her senior year of high school. Though she is older than any other student in the school, she is still so small and cute that people mistake her for an elementary school kid.

Her plan is sometimes undermined by her classmate Mizuki, who keeps talking to her and who knows the real reason she's repeating the year.

This is what tethysdust said this week:
Kyoudai was my favorite of the week. It might not be a 100% original idea, but I thought the story was really well written. It also doesn't constrain itself to one 'episode' per chapter, it takes its time to develop and resolve each mystery. I read up to the point that the overarching (what happened to her brother) story started, and will probably try to continue to follow this one if possible. Ryuunen-Senpai is a light comedy about a small girl trying to get respect, and I think it's complete. Double X Cross is also a comedy, but tending more towards romance-with-childhood-friend.
Here's what Kamas had to say:
Art direction and composition is incredible in Mizuiro Idea. Wakaba is a boisterous individual that contrasts well to Hidaga, who likes to play it cool. As far as character archetypes, they can be considered run of the mill at worst but I found them to be endearing at best. The art is amazing. The gags and story line are delivered well, and a lot of effort is dispensed at presenting a lot of information visually at times but also can be dialogue heavy - this is usually due to a playful back and forth so can be enjoyable.

My opinion:
Double x Cross - If you're in the mood for a romantic comedy, then you should check this manga out.
Kyoudai - Shoujo Tantei to Yuurei Keikan no Kaiki Jikenbo - On the other hand, if you don't want love and want something with a mix of horror and mystery, take a look at this manga instead.
Mizuiro Idea - Although manga about making manga/manga clubs aren't new, maybe this story with a mix of romance will be different enough to be interesting...
Seishun no After - Although this is also another romance, this one includes a time skip and is about past crushes, so this may also interest you if you want more romance...
Uyamae!! Ryuunen Senpai - A short manga with only 12 chapter, this may tickle your funny with another comedy about mistaking a girl for an elementary student...

Translated items that need some love/scanlation:
myao - Circle Game: Chapter 1
persona_1 - Mahou Shoujo Pretty Bell: Chapter 1

If you haven't done so already, check out the scanlations of the manga from previous shout outs which have been recently scanlated: dramatic comedy Boku to Rune to Aoarashi (MH link), gender bender fantasy Only Sense Online (MH link).
