One day, angered by the infidelity of his girlfriend Mari, who is a popular singer, Aki throws a pickup line to the first person he sees. Amazingly, the 16-year-old girl who is the recipient of his half-hearted effort agrees to date him. She's Riko, a high-schooler and a huge fan of Crude Play. Will Aki be able to keep his identity a secret from his new girlfriend, and create a place for himself that is separate from the drama of Crude Play? Will he be able to evade the suspicion and animosity of Yuichi, the boy who has a crush on her?

One small island contains two constantly warring countries. On this island, black-haired people are royalty, other people are commoners, and people with the ears and tails of animals are considered "Ajin", or subhuman.

In order to secure peace, the abnormally red-haired princess of the northern kingdom, Nakaba, has been sent to the south to become the bride of second son of the southern king, called Caesar. In truth, she's more like a hostage, as her life will likely last only as long as the peace between the two kingdoms. Nakaba's only ally is her Ajin servant Loki, who she has known for most of her life.

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:
Sora no Oto (So Ra No Wo To) sort of reminded me of Aria, but with trumpets and military. Taboo Tattoo seemed like a fun story, it had lots of action. There are three love triangle mangas this week: Blue seemed more about overcoming socially constructed limits on relationships than about romance itself. Kanajo wa Uso wo Aishisugiteru was interesting, though I felt a little sorry for the little high schooler. Reimei no Arcana was my favorite of those, I hope more raws come out soon!
Reimei no Arcana definitely looks pretty to look at, although I'm not sure I'd be interested in it or not. If you want to see what So Ra No Wo To looks like before the anime airs, go check it out. Taboo-Tattoo looks nice to look at and I'm a bit curious about the tattoo power. Hmm... but it sounds like that manga that has stickers and powers. XD I guess the manga I'd like to see the most get scanlated based off of descriptions is Uchuu no Sparrow. Yay for alien super powers. :P

Translated items that need some love/scanlation:
fevrier - Mononoke Soushi: Chapter 1 | Chapter 2 (Need TL check)
raivyn554 - Replica: Chapter 1 (Need TL check)
Katatonia - Kinnikuman Nisei: Kyūkyoku no Chōjin Tag Hen: Chapter 1 (Need TLC/Proofread)
BokoLife - Yousei Ningyo Shoujo Kurumi: One-shot

If you haven't done so already, check out the scanlations of the mangas from previous shout outs which have been recently scanlated: The first 3 chapters of fantasy comedy Amanoiwato Hime, the ecchi series Ladies versus Butlers!, the first 3 chapters of incestuous 4koma comedy Hozuki-san Chi no Aneki, violent girl one-shot Ane Pani, fantasy Jio to Ougon to Kinjirareta Mahou, sci-fi mmorpg-type Thai manga EXEcutional, and ecchi series Project Doll-Phone.

Taboo Tattoo is promising~!

Might be willing to go out of hiatus for this...

Well, any scanlation group (HQ groups ONLY) wanting to do this I'm willing to offer my services: translation checking, QC, editing, typesetting, redrawing, etc. (basically every aspect of the scanlation can be done by me except the initial translation because my Japanese isn't upto par as of yet). Just PM me here at MH.

Blah~~

Interesting...
Especially looking forward to "Taboo-Tattoo" and "Uchuu no Sparrow."

Btw, if you want to read "Kanojo wa Uso wo Aishisugiteru," Nagareboshi Manga and Manga Abyss have already made releases. Manga Abyss also scanlated "Reimei no Arcana" (titled as Dawn of the Arcana).

Nori Tama strangely is the one I'm looking most forward too. It's cute and sweet and revolves around 'financial troubles'. Hmm. Reimei to Arcana also looks interesting. I love cat people. :D

Taboo/Tatoo looks interesting, but it seems like a general shounen. Sparrow looks interesting but seems to have a mild cheesiness to it.

But, why "Arago" isn't in the list?!!
#16. by Galooza ()
Posted on Dec 23, 2009
Because you posted Arago after this was put out. It should be on the next.
