Himeno's chest will hurt if any boy touches her because she has the diamond of the heart.

Without knowing about the diamond of the heart, both Mamoru and Keigo promised to protect Himeno. When some people threaten to take Himeno's heart, who else will protect her but her knights?

But one day, a cute girl called Iroha appears, claiming to be his daughter from 20 years in the future. Apparently, in the future magic has been discovered, and she has come back in time by magic to protect her beloved papa from a dark future.

Tears to Tiara (ティアーズ トゥ ティアラ)
By: Shirometsukusa

Demographics: Seinen
Status: 1 Volume (Ongoing)
Manga Details Page: Here
Raws: Volume 1
Translations: None
Scanlations: None

Set in a fictitious land during a medieval-like era of magic and fantasy, Tears to Tiara unfolds with the Divine Empire’s rise to power as it conquers and rules lands far and wide. On the island of Erin, still ruled by the Ancient Kingdom, the Goidelic people are attempting to sacrifice priestess Riannon to revive protagonist and demon king Arawn to lead the resistance against the Empire. Although the ritual fails and Riannon survives, the seal imprisoning the demon king is broken and Arawn is resurrected. Armed with mysterious and devastating powers and a human’s demeanour, Arawn joins Riannon, her brother and battalion commander, Arthur, as well as their team of fighters comprising a swordsman, an archer and a quintet of magical pixies, in the epic struggle against the Divine Empire.

Note to all scanlators: If you recently started scanlating a new manga series (with about 5 or less chapters released) that's hosted on MangaHelpers, 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)

Another slow 2 weeks. However, I would really love love LOVE if someone would translate/scanlate Mahou no Iroha, which is done by the mangaka of Ai Kora and Midori no Hibi. I'm also going to check out Liar Game - Roots of A since I like Liar Game. Check it out if you like a nice psychological series, although you might be turned off a bit by the art. If you like shoujo, be sure to check out Diamond of Heart.

In scanlation news, once again no one has scanlated the Rico one-shot despite it being translated by 2 translators so check out the translations from AyameForPresident and Meriken and give them a nice thanks for their translations. Why is it not getting any love? >_< Two stories of Boku wa Onna no Ko which was translated by boke have yet to scanlated, and the first chapter of Jio to Ougon to Kinjirareta Mahou was translated by Elkin in hopes of a translator picking up this series. Previous shout-out, Sanjin Sadou has been translated by new translator livyatan and prolific new translator Lucifell has caught up and translated the first 4 chapters of Upotte!. Check out the scanlation of Love Zero, which was also translated by him and which just had its first chapter scanlated.

I hope someone picks up Rico and Diamond of Heart *_* I'm becoming curious on Jio to Ougon to Kinjirareta Mahou (whew, long title)

Ridiculous story from Shinjo Mayu as always. You can half expect it to branch into smut less than half way through the series.

Looking forward to more of Liar Game and Rico though. (Someone scanlate it!)

The only one that looks good to me is Roots of A...I'd normally love fantasies but I kind of disliked Tears of Tiara anime...just get a feeling that it's generic.
I sometimes read Shoujo if it's funny as hell or have a serious/drama like plot,but no Diamond of Heart looked liked another story filled with "2 childhood friends"...
I can already guess the plot...

Wasn't Tears To Tiara an anime that aired on Animax. I am sure it is. Someone please do an English translation.
