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:
I liked Zettai Donkan, it was a really sweet love story. A lot of the other stories (like Ama no Nadeshiko, Sora no Kanata no, 99, Love Allergen...) were significantly more high-energy and chaotic than I've seen in recent weeks. Nokizaru stands out for (unless something else is added) being the only samurai/fighting type manga of this set, and for, in my opinion, having pretty terrific art.
Since Tethysdust says that Zettai Donkon is a love story, I'd definitely want to read that. As for the other manga, Nokizaru looks interesting as well as Stein;Gate, but Tethysdust said that it hasn't yet actually explained anything in the summary within the first chapter. Be wary of content questionable to some in Bra Girl/Swing Girl (futanari/hermaphrodite), and 99 is from the mangaka that brought you Amaenaideyo and Amaenaideyo MS so expect lots of fanservice.

Translated items that need some love/scanlation:
Elkin - Jio to Ougon to Kinjirareta Mahou: Chapter 1 | Chapter 2
ChibiAkaii - Tokyo Toy Box: Chapter 1 (ask permission) Scanlated by imangascans
ChibiAkaii - Mission School: Chapter 1 (ask permission)

Steins Gate, 99 and Nokizaru looks good!!

Steins;Gate is the only one that looks interesting to me. The artwork looks so intense yet the story sounds so silly. XD

Just a note that Steins;Gate is based on the visual novel of the same name, so there should be plenty of info about it for the curious. Apparently it's set in the same world as Chaos;Head, about a year later, so i'll hold off in case of spoilers.
I don't know why, but Gakuen Babysitters catches my interest too...

The link to the manga-detail page for "Brocken Blood V" links to "Konohanatei Kitan" at the moment.

Steins Gate looks interesting but I have to agree with Queenofmuffins: "...The artwork looks so intense yet the story sounds so silly. XD"

Stories/settings like Gokko's are difficult and are not suited for younger readers but they tend to be very interesting (Angel Sanctuary is a good example even if its a fantasy story).

Gakuen Babysitters reminds me of Ouran High School host club, dunno why...

Hmm, Nokizaru and Steins;Gate are the only interesting looking ones to me this go around. Love Allergen sounds like it could be good, but won't know til I read it.
