The metropolitan police have a special squad of negotiators for talking down violent criminals in hostage situations and so forth. The two top negotiators have great knowledge of human psychology and experience in dealing with criminals, but they are missing something important.
They are searching for someone who is capable of agape love-- unconditional and selfless love for all people. Such a person would be able to develop rapport easily with criminals, and therefore be a natural negotiator. Instead of finding a person like this on the police force, they find her in the form of the teenage girl Haruka. Will they be able to persuade her to become a negotiator for the police?Thanks go to tethysdust for the summary.

The mild-mannered, somewhat weak-willed Harui Fudemi is an average salariman -- a member of the general staff of a small loans firm, Tsukikage Financial Services, with a penchant for impressing his female coworkers with crappy parlor magic. He's a married man with a loving wife and three kids, and a magic enthusiast ... or so he claims.
In fact, the person known as "Harui Fudemi" is a fabricated identity of a highly skilled magician known only as Doctor Whoo, who runs Tsukikage Finance as a front for the mysterious organization called the Kurobuchi Foundation. His true occupation is to protect the average citizen from the ambitions and greed of businesses and politicians from the shadows -- a goal that he will use any means to achieve.
But gradually, Doctor Whoo will come to realize that there are some corrupt individuals that are untoucheable even to the operatives of the Kurobuchi Foundation...

On a wharf on Tokyo Bay is a small gallery named Gallery Fake. The owner of the gallery, Reiji Fujita, was once a curator at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. He was a learned curator with remarkable memory, keen aesthetic sense, great skill in restoration of paintings and knowledge of many languages, so he was called the "Professor." However, because of trouble in the workplace, Fujita was forced to quit the museum. Now he is an art dealer who sells paintings, authentic and fake alike, at extraordinary prices. His motto is "One without aesthetic sense can't help being cheated out of his money. And by being deceived, one may learn to distinguish real ones from the counterfeit."
However, Fujita is not a villain. He truly appreciates art and the artists who spent their lives to create it. He is not someone who just earns money by selling fake paintings. Sometimes he takes paintings from a wicked politician who considers art only as a means of exchanging bribes. Sometimes he tries to restore destroyed paintings. He often touches the lives of those he encounters and people are attracted to him in spite of himself.

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:
- The name of the manga series
- A summary of the series
- Publishing Status (+ Number of Volumes/Chapters)
Despite the fact that there isn't a lot of manga featured this time, I still liked a bunch of them, from Agape and it's premise of having a high school girl as a hostage negotiator to the dark action AR∀GO, and the mysterious Double Face. I just wish more mystery mangas were scanlated. As for i.d., I'd like to see a model that can do martial arts and work as a telemarketer. :P Just hearing that made me laugh. Wow... Mayoi sure has a lot of ecchi shots. If you liked To-Love-Ru for its ecchiness, then you'll definitely like Mayoi... Anyway, I hope they all get scanlated, although now that I see Mayoi, I'd think that would be the most likely to get scanlated due to its ecchi factor...Translated items that need some love/scanlation:Katatonia
