Sunao takes Potemayo to school with him and she is an instant hit with his classmates, especially the girls. While they are at school, another similar creature comes out of Sunao's refrigerator and makes its way to a park where Sunao and his class are spending an art class.

Fleeing in a spaceship from her home planet of Valhalla, Princess Warukyure (Valkyrie) has crash-landed on the unlucky Kazuto and his public bathhouse. In order to save him from death, she has given half of her soul to Kazuto, binding them together irreversibly.

With only half her soul, unless she borrows power from Kazuto, Waru-chan reverts to the form of a child. For Kazuto's part, he's now basically invulnerable, which is a lucky thing considering all of the explosions, death rays, and crashing spaceships that are now a commonplace occurrence. Will Kazuto's bathhouse, friends, and city be able to survive being mixed up in Waru-chan's royal family drama?

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:
Kurobone was probably the most surprising. Despite it featuring anthropomorphic animals, it's actually a pretty serious political story. Narue no Sekai was cute, and it's kind of nice to read a romance where both the girl and the guy are pretty much good-hearted people. P.A. looks interesting, it reminds me of an article I read once about people's increasing social isolation leading to the growth of that sort of industry.
This week, I only found Ame Nochi Hare interesting (due to the genderbending aspect :P) and the Haco one-shot (the apocalyptic world aspect).

Haco Translation is done everyone, and it's free for use. Just be sure to have another translator read it before putting it on scantlation.

...Can this post be updated with 'completed' for the trans? Thanks.
