Loran and Carmen -- two nations whose royalty are of the blood of the legendary hero, Roto. For a century, their armies have guarded humanity from the hordes of mazoku that plagued the lands, standing firm as a bastion against evil. It seemed that they could never fall.

But good things don't last. Within the period of a fortnight, the armies of both states are infiltrated by the agents of the newly resurfaced Demon Lord Imagine, and the royalty is purged. Uniting the squabbling mazoku clans into a single front of possibly unprecedented scale, Imagine plunges the world into an era of uncertainty and terror. One by one, the human nations fall.

Arus, the prince of Carmen, is saved by royal advisors and sent away before Imagine's agents can capture him and turn him into a pawn. Growing up under the care of the general's daughter Lunafrea and the Court Priest Tarkin, he swears that he will defeat Imagine and save the world. When his initial training is concluded, he sets out on a journey to seek out the successors of Roto's companions -- the Blademaster, the Martial Artist, and the Sage -- and to obtain the legendary relics that comprise Roto's legacy.

In the citadel of the mazoku, the Dragonlord, a loyal general of Imagine, cultivates the other descendant of Roto at Imagine's command -- Jagan, the prince of the former kingdom of Loran. In time, he is to be named the Majin-ou, and he shall lead a fourth of Imagine's troops as a dark successor to Roto's legend. What awaits Arus and Jagan? What will happen when their paths cross?

Sequel of "Dragon Quest: Emblem of Roto." Set 20 years after Arus saves the world from the Demon Lord Imagine.

5 years ago, in an event known as "the Day of Loss," magic ceased to function. In the underground land of Alefgard, the people of the kingdom of Radatome vanished in a single night. The only survivors are Aros, the prince of the kingdom, and A-Kagi, a member of a group of bandits known as the Band of the Hawks, who infiltrated the castle that night to commit a robbery.

Aros, who becomes an amnesiac due to trauma, is raised in the care of A-Kagi and the Band of the Hawks. Years later, events lead him to depart from the Hawks and begin seeking out the truth behind "the Day of Loss" -- as well as the whereabouts of his missing twin sister, who appears to be stealing sacred crystal orbs on the orders of a young boy who calls himself "Lamia."

Meanwhile, the companions of the hero Arus have been systematically eliminated by unknown parties...

Just connect a headphone to the game hardware, close your eyes, and you will enter the game automatically and control the game by using your brain.

And in a short amount of time, the game becomes popular, with the number of the players increasing everyday.

"Ganda," a young boy protagonist, is also one of the players of that game. The story will focus on the war between a group of Game Master (GM), and a group of Anti-Game Master that Ganda participates in, with a little bit of how Ganda and his friends are doing and their relationships in the real world.

Nanami Haruka wants to be a song writer, so she attends an idol training school filled with beautiful bishounen. The school pairs each aspiring songwriter with an aspiring idol, but Haruka finds herself paired with 3 idols! To make things more difficult, Nanami is also not allowed to date any of her beautiful partners!

Nanami Haruka is a shy teenage girl who has a dream to become a talented song writer. She is accepted by Saotome Gakuen, an elite entertainment industry school developed for the sole purpose of nurturing future idols. The classes are taught by famous idols; facilities include top notch recording studios and live theaters. Most importantly, only a small portion of the most talented, natural born idol students are allowed into the prestigious Shining Agency after graduation and introduced to the nation.

The school randomly pairs up a singer to a song writer but as fate would have it, Haruka ends up being paired with 3 very different boys all striving to become the next big idol; Ittoki Otoya is upbeat and lively, Shinomiya Natsuki is bright and intelligent, Hijirikawa Masato is cool and calm. Haruka, determined to make all three boys into future idols must work harder than anyone else and overcome her shy personality if she wants to reach her dream. Uta*Puri is a must read.

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)

This is why tethysdust said this week:
Quote:
Kogan no Mouten was the most interesting of the new ones to me. It's a murder mystery from the point of view of the criminal. Diamond Cut Diamond appealed to me from the whole x-men-like premise.
I added in some older manga again that either haven't been scanlated in a while (none have been scanlated in over a year) and some older mangas that have never been scanlated. A few of the mangas caught my eye, which were: Ane Pani (violent girl yay), Kogan no Mouten (ooh~ the murder's point of view for once), Diamond Cut Diamond (action/x-men like tethysdust said), and Hakuouki Jurenka (historical with monsters ^_^).

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) (Scanlated by Pure Scans)
fevrier - Mononoke Soushi: Chapter 1 | Chapter 2
raivyn554 - Replica: Chapter 1

If you haven't done so already, check out the scanlations of the mangas from previous shout outs: The Bodyguard of Mahiru.

...So it doesn't get shouted... .___."

*semi-depressed*

Guess manga that doesn't originate from Japan really can't stand a chance then...oh well, I'll just have to push EXE even harder. :p

THANKS FOR THE SHOUTOUT ANYWAY~! Quite a few interesting ones too...though my list is full and I want to concentrate on pushing EXE out to the level that it's known even without the shout...:3

Oh, I didn't see that you added the raw to it... I thought you just did the TL and didn't provide a raw, which would be hard for someone to get into if there's only the TL. Anyway, added EXE to the shout out now. ^^;;

<3 <3 <3

Well, the raw is actually Thai raw as well...and the first of its kind in this website (since I just requested the mod and admin to add that to the droplist for me when I put up that raw...>_<") So, guess it's just normal for it to be a bit easy to miss...-_-"

Though I guess I'll have to learn how to debind tankoubon and scan the whole first volume quickly then...but THANKS SO, SO MUCH FOR THE SHOUT~! XDDD
