New Manga Shout Out: 3/21/16 - 3/27/16

+ posted by c_k in Shout-Outs on Mar 30, 2016 06:33

Welcome to the next New Manga Shout Out. This weekly article introduces you to manga that are new and/or have not been scanlated yet. This week features a rock band gag manga and a twilight zone-type manga. Remember, if you like any of the series, favorite them. Don't forget to also thank the various people who feed your manga addiction. ^_^ Translators and Scanlators, please check out these series and see if you can spread some more manga love~

We're still looking for people who know Japanese and want to help write summaries for our manga database and for the shout out. Please PM me if you want to help out. Now onto the series~

Ebata no Rock (エバタのロック)
By: MUROI Daisuke

Demographics: Seinen
Status: 4 Volumes (Complete)
Manga Details Page: Here
Translations: None
Scanlations: None

After Masato is kicked out of his band, he ends up being a manager for an influential and unusual rock-star named Ebata. This rock-star gag manga tells his and Ebata's legendary story in chapters that take inspiration from different real-life rockers!

Thanks go to tethysdust for the summary.


Outer Zone - Re:visited (アウターゾーン リ:ビジテッド)

Demographics: Shounen
Status: 3 Volumes (Ongoing)
Manga Details Page: Here
Translations: None
Scanlations: None

The elven-eared Misery is our guide to the Outer Zone, a place where reality and dreams collide (similar to The Outer Limits or The Twilight Zone). Humans, and even animals, sometimes find themselves wandering into this place on the edge of reality. For example, the first story involves a manga assistant who buys a love doll that is more than it seems, and the second is about a poor abandoned cat who is trying to find a way to survive in a cold park. Each chapter focuses on a different encounter with the supernatural!

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:
  1. The name of the manga series
  2. A summary of the series
  3. Publishing Status (+ Number of Volumes/Chapters)

This is what tethysdust said this week:
I've never read a rockstar gag manga before, so Ebata no Rock is unusual in that sense. It's interesting to see the inspiration they take from Japanese and world musicians. Outer Zone seems very much like a Twilight Zone sort of series, with the guide Misery as the frame story to introduce and close out each episode (though she is also sometimes a character in the story). The stories are of varying types--for instance, the first chapter was more of a horror story, while the second was a sweet and sad fantasy.

My opinion:
Ebata no Rock - I think if you like Detroit Metal City (since it's also a comedy manga about a rock group), then I think you would probably like this manga too.
Outer Zone - Re:visited - If you are into the supernatural, then this may be more your style.

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