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)

Here's what Tethysdust says about this week:
Quote:
We Can Fly was probably my favorite of this week's manga-- it's pretty short, but definitely worth the read in my opinion. Esoragoto was entirely in color, so that was pretty neat. Wooden Maze was interesting... it's made of stories that are a few pages long, which show the main characters' relationship through everyday events. As for the girl's love mangas (Apocalyse, Shinigami Alice, and Konohanatei Kitan), they seemed to focus more on characters and emotions, and not very much on ecchi-ness.
I definitely agree with Tethysdust; I'd definitely want to read We Can Fly as well as Esoragoto. Dragon Fly sounds interesting; too bad the whole volume isn't available. You can find the scanlation of the first chapter somewhere. :P Hopefully someone will pick up the other chapters, if someone is nice enough to get the rest of the volume. I think I'd also check out Daydream Nation, especially since there's already 2 chapters scanlated. God Eater looks good too, but it's a Kodansha title so you gotta find the raws elsewhere. ^^;;

Translated items that need some love/scanlation:
Elkin - Jio to Ougon to Kinjirareta Mahou: Chapter 1 | Chapter 2
lucifell - Itsuka Tenma no Kuro-Usagi: Chapter 1 Scanlated by imangascans

Two groups (Taka scans and IDWS - scans) finally scanlated Hokenshitsu no Shinigami's first chapter so go check their releases out.

Was actually so worried that you won't shout God Eater because it's Kodansha's title (aka. No raws or scanlations around here). THANKS FOR SHOUTING IT ANYWAY~ <3 <3 <3

Esoragoto looks very promising... i like such kind of stories and i'll hope that author will not disappoint us with the next chapters...

Dragon Fly is currently being published in Gelatin quarterly magazine despite the fact that the volume was already been printed in 2008, so there will be possible to find next chapters when (and if) next issues of the magazine will be scanned...

and Itsuka Tenma no Kuro-Usagi was already scanlated by imangascans 4 days ago...


p.s. new Shihou Sekai no Ou series also looks good, since i never read any manga about assyrians with kind of spatial magic involved... -_-"

we can fly, reindeer of folk tales, and esoragoto . . .someone . . .please *_*

I liked god eater~ I'm a sucker for religious references so I think dragon fly would be interesting (the raw kinda bothered me though because I think I remember seeing . . . uuuggh)

The rest are either not my type or I just don't know what to think yet . . .

i read God Eater's raws earlier...
it didn't actually seem to attract my attention so much...
the title did...but not exactly the story...
i think i might have to wait for a couple more chapter's release...
before i can decide if i should continue reading it...:)

whereas the other titles...i'm not into GL...
but i'll definitely look into Dragon Fly + We Can Fly...
We Can Fly seems like a story that...cleanses (?) you...
and Dragon Fly...well...i'm a sucker for biblical/religious genres~
shinigamis go go go~~ <3

@ Ju-da-su: Well, normally I wouldn't, but since you translated it... :P

@ Spiritovod: Ah, I didn't see that they scanlated it since they didn't post it on MH... It's been fixed.

@ Gradonil_Ral: Thanks. Included their link.

@ b0mb34man: Yes, that's true. We don't host Kodansha mangas, but we can still have manga pages for them as well as translations. There's nothing wrong with that.

@ fallacies: Thanks- fixed~

@ amtt: Will look forward to your scanlation. ^_^

"We can Fly" looks awesome! (But that may be because I've always wanted to fly. XD)

I also plan on checking out Esoragoto and Dragon fly. :3

Hello there,

I'm looking for a translator for Shinigami Alice (first chapter). Is a tanslator out there who would translate this, please :)?

To be honest, I'm a beginner in scanlating mangas. I'm reading tutorials but just "learning" without actually "doing" anything (not entirely true, I know) is something which drives me mad. That's why I'm trying to scanlate Shingami Alice in order to practice a little bit.

Thanks for your time & help in advance,
tavera

Oh is it time?

NEKO WAPPA NEKO WAPPA NEKO WAPPA NEKO WAPPA!

Seriously I can't big it up enough (as with lilienthal). If you haven't checked out this series you're a fool, and if you have and don't like it you are a greater fool than if you had just not checked it out.

... Yeah that'll do for now

Hi there,
finally it's done: Shinigami Alice Chapter 01 is finished.
It took so long because I screwed up the cleaning -.-"

Mediafire-Link: http://www.mediafire.com/?fl0zmynjy4j (23,05 MB)

Thanks to tethysdust for translating the chapter and to deos (friend of mine, has no acc on mangahelpers) for QC'ing it.

Remember: I'm a beginner, there are probably some things that you won't like.
I am reading guides etc but it'll take some time to use all that knowledge.

I'll add it to the MH-ShinigamiAlice-page as soon as the group request is approved.

Thanks for your time,
tav
