Valia has responded by summoning a "Valis Warrior", who uses the power of the light within her, from the human world.

This Valis warrior is Yuko, who was an ordinary high school girl until she was pulled into Mugenkai. It's up to her to find a way to defeat the evil Rogles and retrieve the stolen power sources. But she has more than Rogles and his underlings to deal with, because Rogles has acquired a warrior of his own. This "Vecanta Warrior", who wields power by the darkness within her, is Reiko, Yuko's friend from the human world. But Reiko is not acting like herself, and seems to view Yuko as only an enemy. Will Yuko be able to both stop Rogles and find a way to return Reiko to the way she was before? Or will she have to seriously fight her friend?

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:
I like Otona no Seito Techou. It's actually not a harem/ecchi type story, despite the set-up. There are 2 detective mangas, Tokyo Detectives and Christie High Tension. I enjoyed Tokyo Detectives more, of the two. Christie seemed sort of like a Mary-Sue insertion into Sherlock Holmes. Baibow was pretty cool, very strange art. Of the ones I haven't read, Vector Case File - Inaho no Konchuuki looks the most interesting, mostly because that seems like such a weird premise for a manga.
None of the mangas really seemed to pique my interest, although the art for Mugen-tou looks nice. I just hope that No Side and Hisoka Returns gets picked up for scanlation seeing that both projects are no longer being scanlated. I enjoyed reading what has been scanlated, but seeing that they both look older I highly doubt anyone will pick them up. -__-

Translated items that need some love/scanlation:
Katatonia - Kinnikuman Nisei: Kyūkyoku no Chōjin Tag Hen: Chapter 1 (Need TLC/Proofread)
Katatonia - Jojo's Bizarre Adventure: Chapter 1 (c1-6 done) (Need Proofreading)
Mr. Prince - Oumagadoki Doubutsuen: One-shot
Wolsok - Baka to Test to Shoukanjyuu Dya: Chapter 1 (Needs TLC/PR)

If you haven't done so already, check out the scanlations of the mangas from previous shout outs which have been recently scanlated: ecchi action series GODEATH, romantic shoujo Uta No Prince-sama and the ecchi, romantic, supernatural series Loose Relation between Wizard & Apprentice.

... :D I can't believe you featured all the ones I have uploaded :D Thank you ^^ Makes me want to upload more ...

Here is what I think:

Christie High Tension: Well I know it was kinda *insert rather wonderful character here* but the art is unusual and cute. Plus I like mystery manga - and the colour pages looked so cool. It wasn't too bad though. I liked it.

Kiteretsu Daihyakka: I'm going to try and check out this one ^^

Mugen-tou: The cover looks rather nice. I think I might check out that one.

Otona no Seito Techou: This was a cool one. I really like the idea of the slow students. And yes- like it is a set up for Harem mayhem ... it doesn't go there.

Todoroki High School Book Committees: Well I kinda stumbled across this one. So I uploaded it for old time sakes. Wasn't too bad. I don't normally like 4-komas - but this wasn't too bad.

Tokyo Detectives: Well it was an older series and about mysteries so I checked it out. I like this one as well. The only issue is the second volume. I can't see to get my little hands on it.

That is about all for me ...

I should upload the rest of Book Committees and try and hunt down volume 2 of Tokyo. And upload some more different ones.

But thank you anyway X3

I guess no one is interested, but what the heck... I have to try. If any translator is interested in Mugen Senshi Valis, please contact me, I've been interested in that series since last year, I even bought the tanks to scanlate the series.

Mugen-tou looks good. Anything from Morning2 gets the benefit of the doubt.

I liked Mugen-tou a lot, the art really stands out. Also, the writing style was very entertaining.

"Hisoka Returns!" seemed interesting to me. ^^
"Mugen" also caught my eye, and reminded me of Mushishi for some reason... XD

And I actually thought this was some good shouts outs. Instead of catering almost exclusively to just ecchi or shounen stuff, there was a lot of from all different areas of manga. Sure, I wouldn't be interested in the rugby one at all, but others might. I hope the future shout-outs are more like this one. ^^
