Tsuyoshi lived with a friend who was chasing a dream in Tokyo, but then that friend stole all his money and ran off. Now Tsuyoshi is stuck alone with no money, no friends, and no job. Luckily, he finds a place to stay with his aunt, Yuki, who is only a few years older than him. Unluckily, the room he's allotted in Yuki and her boyfriend's home is tiny--and already occupied by two Pomeranian dogs.

Panda Noko (パンダのこ)By:Demographics:
1 Volume (Complete) / 43 ChaptersManga Details Page: HereTranslations: NoneScanlations: None
There are two versions of this story with the same premise, one that ends at 10 chapters and another longer series. Sasatake Noko is crazy about pandas, and she has all sorts of panda stuff at her house. One day, a new girl panda arrived from China to join the panda at Ueno Zoo, and there were rumors that the new panda might even be pregnant! Noko showed up to greet the truck carrying the new panda, but noticed that the back door seemed slightly open when it went by. Then she noticed a small, kind of rat-like animal on the ground. After taking it in, Noko realized it was an infant panda, which must have been birthed in the truck and fallen out. Now she has achieved her dream of having a panda of her very own, and she's determined to raise it herself!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:
Panda Noko was cute, if silly (I highly doubt she would have gotten away with raising a panda as long as she did :D). It has a lot of little fun panda facts scattered throughout.
Here's what Kamas had to say:
For Memento - Archivez, I don't have much to say on this one because it's probably too early to tell but as a first impression: the first few chapters were very gripping, it does a good job of making you want to know what happens next and how it happened and I think that this manga has good potential as a survival series.
My opinion: Gakeppuchi Room Share
- If you're a fan of dogs, slice of life and comedy, it may tickle your funny bone to watch as the guy shares a room with two Pomeranians...Kenzen Robo Daimidaier OGS
- If you've read the prequel or are a fan of ecchiness and mecha, then you should check this manga out...Memento - Archivez
- However, if you're a fan of violence and survival-type manga, then you should read this one instead.Nipongo
- This manga on the other hand is more of a slice of life manga with a nice mix of cultures and is good for those who want to see how high school girls from different cultures mix.Panda Noko
- Another choice manga for those who like pandas. Since there's only one volume/43 chapters, it'll be a pretty short read for those who pick it up.Translated items that need some love/scanlation:myao
