In the manga publication industry, there is a legend:
If you leave a message on a bulletin board in the train station at Shibuya, you can obtain the services of a certain man... No, not City H*nter. Comic Master J -- an assistant mangaka who can instantly complete any publication manuscript in any art style for the price of 5 million Yen. However, he refuses to work on manga without a "soul."

But what is J's true identity? Why does he wear an overcoat lined with pens and rulers? Is his real name B*ack Jack? And for what reason does a man of such artistic talent choose to live in the shadows of the industry, rather than working on a manga of his own creation?

J's past and his relationship with the mysterious organization "CLUB" may tie in with a secret war for the fate of human culture as we know it ...

Picked up by Teaparty

The man who claims to be "Inokashira Yukito" is a professional bodyguard who moonlights as the caretaker of a small shrine in the slums of a Japanese city. However, several years ago, he was one of the top operatives of a Cantonese triad called the Twin Snakes, who escaped from his organization with an ancient alchemical manuscript purported to have been penned by Lao Tsu. Within it was the formula for "Shien Dan" (Sentan) -- a substance that grants humans strange psychic powers at the cost of a reduced lifespan.

As Shien Dan begins circulating as a common drug in the back streets of Yukito's city, a middle school girl named Mahiru appears before him, claiming to be the younger sister of the shrine's missing priestess -- the woman who nursed Yukito back to health when he violently parted ways with his former employer. Noting that the girl is being pursued by the gangsters of Twin Snakes, Yukito agrees to become her bodyguard. It seems that the past he left behind is finally catching up with him ...

Armed only with his combat experience and his expertise in martial arts, can Yukito prevail against inhuman assassins empowered by Shien Dan?

=======================================================
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)

Since we didn't have many new mangas debuting on MH, I thought it'd be a good idea to add in some older manga that either haven't been scanlated in a while (none have been scanlated in over a year) or maybe some older mangas that have never been scanlated. This way if any scanlators want to try out some longer series (with possibly some people already reading the series or start with a more established manga) then you'd have the option to instead of waiting for a week or a month for the next new raw release. Out of the older manga, Master Comic J seems interesting because it's about mangakas, and it's from the creators of Akumetsu. From the new manga, En Passant (for the art and the lazy protagonist), Kill Me Baby (the funny situations), and Simulacra of the Crazy Idea (the mystery/art) caught my eye.

Thanks go to vyc for helping to read the new mangas and write the summaries while tethysdust was away and to rhavin for offering to help. You guys really showed me that you're willing to help a person out. ^_^

Translated items that need some love/scanlation:
Elkin - Jio to Ougon to Kinjirareta Mahou: Chapter 1 | Chapter 2
weroth - Wa!: Chapter 1 (needs TL check)
milcor1 - Tentai Senshi Sun Red: Chapter 1 (ch.1-14 all translated) Scanlated by PiyoHiko

If you haven't done so already, check out the recently scanlated mangas from previous shout outs: Roman Sanjuusou and Esoragoto.

Can't believe Rideback still hasn't been scanlated yet. V1 was great (done by I-Z). If you liked the anime, you'll like the manga even more. Definitely worth scanlating.

Comic Master J, seems pretty good.

En Passant, Funkei no Tomo, MaMa, Taihei no Hana all sounds interesting. I love Japanese history, especially ones based around the time of Nobunaga and Hideyoshi after reading Taiko, a book based on Hideyoshi's rise to power.

Kanbei and Hambei was in it too, and I loved how they were portrayed in it. Such strong sense of loyalty.

En Passant and MaMa sounds like a good change from all the ecchi stuff of late.
