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 what tethysdust said this week:
Quote:
Shinigami-sama ni Saigo no Onegai wo was very different from the oneshot. Actually, other than having shinigami who grant people's last wishes, the story was completely different. It was much darker, and more of a sort of supernatural murder mystery thing. I liked Non Non Biyori, it was very peaceful, kind of like the previous Inakano. It also seemed like it would be pretty easy to translate, if anyone was looking for something like that. Mahiru Adventure was like a 15 year old, insane, Tomb Raider type story, with lots of naked women. I think Entaku no Himeshi was probably the most absurd of the week, but it was pretty funny.
Caterpillar Operetta sounds like a nice cute shounen romance, as well as Megane-chan (although it's probably more ecchi seeing it's seinen), plus it's by the Kodomo no Jikan mangaka. Shinigami-sama ni Saigo no Onegai wo's serialization sounds a lot more interesting and appealing than it's one-shot counterpart (yay for more murder mystery). Karasu Tengu Uju Nago Mikkusu looks really cute and it features tengus and sleeping gods, which is always good~ I guess people might like Jiya since it's by Toriyama (Dragonball) and the creator of Zetman, although I didn't when I checked out the raw. Then again I can't understand the Japanese, so prove me wrong if it's really good. ^^

Translated items that need some love/scanlation:
Elkin - Jio to Ougon to Kinjirareta Mahou: Chapter 1 | Chapter 2 | Chapter 3 (chapter 1 scanlated by Seven Manga)
fevrier - Mononoke Soushi: Chapter 1 | Chapter 2 (Need TL check)
raivyn554 - Replica: Chapter 1 (Need TL check)
lucifell - Project Doll Phone: Chapter 1
ecks - Mitsudomoe : Omake | Chapter 1 | Chapter 2 | Chapter 3 | Chapter 4 (Scanlated by KS)

If you haven't done so already, check out the scanlations of the mangas from previous shout outs: One-shots Roll and Rico, slice of life comedy Wa!, action fantasy En Passant, and shoujo romance Hime-chan no Ribbon Colorful.

It seemed like a lot of the mangas focused on women this week. -_-"

Shinigami-sama ni Saigo no Onegai wo interested me though. I hope that gets scanalated! :D

Haven't checked out the raws (except for two, jiya and tamashii...), but these had captured my interest:
Aria the Scarlet Ammo - I saw the word "combat detectives" and I like the art
Entaku no Kishi! - knight, princess, childhood love(?), players, chesspieces . . . totally enough to grab my attention
Jiya - haven't been reading manga with aliens much, and it's by akira toriyama . . . got me really interested~
Shinigami-sama ni Saigo no Onegai wo - twisted sibling relationship, I'm in xD
Tamashii no Kyokasho -Southeast Asia Hen- it's not often for me to see manga featuring asians that aren't chinese, korean, and of course, japanese. but errr . . . I'm not fond of this type of mature manga. *sad*

Hmm.... I would try to DL the raw of "Jio to Ougon to Kinjirareta Mahou" *what a long title anyway* If the raw is good enough I will scanlate it. I'm still noob on scanlate (especially cleanner)

......

Don't know whether I should be happy or sad that one manga features my country...-_-"

(Though I got to admit, didn't see Thailand being featured as much in mangas... .-. )

Shinigami-sama ni Saigo no Onegai wo looks interesting, I wouldn't mind cleaning it but I needs a translator...

Jiya looks like it'll be interesting too...

Jiya is must read. Toriyama x Katsura in WYJ, I couldn't be more intrigued.
#10. by Galooza ()
Posted on Dec 14, 2009
Entaku no Kishi, Aria the Scarlet Ammo, and Caterpillar Operetta look pretty good. Other than that, I do believe Jiya is the first series with Akira Toriyama as a mangaka that I won't be interested in.

CINOSS is picking up Shinigami-sama, we already have it partially translated and most of the pages cleaned and ready, we kinda started before it showed up on this weeks list. :P

We will not be doing the One Shot though, so if someone wants to do that, feel free.

We got 2 more TLs and a cleaner/typesetter so we will be ramping quite a few releases in the next week or so from the stuff we are working on.

[Edit] If no one is adament about picking Aria up, Im planning to Scanlate it, so unless you really want to do it, we will be doing that too.
