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:
A few stood out to me this time. Short Song was my favorite. I've never read much Japanese poetry before, but the poems interspersed through the story ("written" by the characters) were really fun. Even more than that, the characterization and the complexities of the plot kept me interested. Ten Yori Takaku was pretty ridiculous, but in a funny way. Ko Mori Uta was very short, but the art is quite pretty and all in color.
There were two that piqued my interests and they were Ko Mori Uta due to the fact that it's about a 'god' and it sort of reminds me a bit like Natsume Yuujinchou (which you should check out since it's now licensed), and Short Song because it's a seinen romance and I'm always looking for a good seinen romance. The dynamic between the characters also sound interesting - the 'evil' mature man manipulating the 'innocent' and naive boy~. Normally I might be interested in Twinkle Twinkle Idol Star, but the art is turning me a bit off. ^^;; However, if you're looking for an anime tie-in, both Hanamaru Youchien and Ladies versus Butlers! have an anime so you might want to check out the manga if you like the anime. LvB will definitely appeal to the moe crowd, although I heard the anime is a lot more fanservicey. Those looking for an action manga should check out Sengoku ARMORS, Air Master or Yami no Aegis.

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)
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: the first two chapters of romantic shoujo Uta No Prince-sama, action fantasy one-shot Oumagadoki Doubutsuen and psychological drama Judge.

Once you get past the art, Airmaster is pretty nice manga. I'm somewhere at the volume 16 right now and no urge to drop reading, so I'll see it to the end)))

Also, it'd be real great if the last 3 volumes were tankou, as of now they are magazine raws.

I'm glad Airmaster is getting a shout out! :)

I'd just like to say that nexGear scanlated the first volume of Airmaster quite a few years ago. The project got dropped since I got busy IRL, but it would be great if someone picked up where I left off! I may upload this first volume if people are interested.
