Tomonaga is a brilliant scientist who left his home in Japan to study at a university in the US at the young age of 13. Six years later, the economic crisis deprived him of his research funding, and thus his career. Now he's returned to Japan to take a job teaching at an all-girls high school.

Unfortunately, on his first day he learns the reason the position was open; the previous teacher was fired for inappropriate conduct towards a student. How can Tomonaga be an effective teacher when he is teaching girls who are basically his age? And, with the emotional wounds caused by his predecessor still healing, how can he prove to his cautious students that he deserves their trust?

By: RIKUDO Koshi

Demographics: Seinen
Status: 5 Volumes (Ongoing)
Manga Details Page: Here
Raws: Volume 1 | Volume 2 | Volume 3 | Volume 4 | Volume 5
Translations: None
Scanlations: None

Holy Brownie is a compilation of short stories centered around two creatures Piola and Fio, servants of God. Their appearance resemble dolls and are able to travel to different points in time, past, present and future to do work of God. Each chapter follows their mission to use their powers to take over human beings to do seemingly impossible things, usually involving giving life to something inanimate or dead.

Piola is a ill tempered character who disagrees with some of the missions she is assigned because it involves immoral or obscene subjects. She expects her missions to be happy ones like making flower gardens but instead everytime she is paired with Fio, she is forced to see questionable images. She takes her anger out on Fio, the calm yet bad mouthed character in multiple hilarious ways, including slicing her with a razorblade, burning her with a blow torch and stuffing her inside a beaker.

Reading this, you may think that Holy Brownie is a dark manga but in truth, it is very funny. The reaction of the characters to each mission is brilliantly hilarious and will have you glued to the pages for hours.

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:
Lots of interesting manga this time! Of the ones I read, I was struck by how strangely serious in tone both a Methed to make the gentle World and Akatoki Residence were. Unless the way it's written changes very drastically, I don't think Methed will go the ecchi/harem route. Douken - Nanohana Koukou Douga Kenkyuu would, I think, be pretty fun for anyone into reading about romance and people aspiring to be animators. God Seeker-- I believe she isn't a tsundere, unless she's keeping it well hidden . Monochrome Myst seemed pretty promising, as did the Unstable Castle of Tokarev. Again, the serious atmosphere of Unstable Castle makes me think it probably won't dissolve into a generic ecchi/harem type thing.
With a new manga magazine (Dengeki Daioh Genesis) starting its publication, we got a lot of new mangas starting in addition to a bunch of 'older' mangas that are newly uploaded to the site (thanks to NFKira). Since we had so many new mangas uploaded to the site, like a few times this has happened before, we're splitting up the article so you're not overwhelmed with all the new mangas (or so we say...). ^^;; We just need more time to write all the summaries so look forward to checking out the rest of the new mangas in 2-3 days time~

Anyway, quite a few of the mangas piqued my interest in this shout out. For Akatoki Hoshi Residence, who would claim to be an alien to get divorced? Well, the description sounds interesting and I'd give it shot if it's scanlated. I'm on the fence on whether or not I'd check out Ashita no Kyouko-san. It reminds me a bit like Hajimete no Aku or something familiar... I just LOLed at the premise for Cherry Paradise - Million Paradox. Who'd think that a robot would protect a boy's virginity - that's just too hilarious, although it'd probably be full of ecchi fan service... >_<. Ah~ the sister in Good Seeker looks like such a yandere in that cover shot~ I'd check out that series just for that reason alone; well, I'm pretty willing to check out any series that has someone wanting to take over the world. ^_^ Mousou Kikou - Adolescence Avatar sounds a bit too like a Suzumiya Haruhi manga rip-off, although I'm interested in how his imagination is going to ruin his life. =P

Translated items that need some love/scanlation:
Wolsok - Baka to Test to Shoukanjyuu Dya: Chapter 1 (Needs TLC/PR)
WinningDays & Maccha - Uchuu no Sparrow: One-shot
xdeathcat - Cloth Weaver: Chapter 1 (Needs TLC/PR)
Bomber D Rufi - HACO: One-shot (Needs TLC/PR)
noob3d - Ame Nochi Hare: Chapter 1 (Needs TLC + Ask Permission)
fevrier - Smargs won't Sing: One-shot (Needs TLC/PR)

For the first time in a while there are a couple of good ones, Gentle World, Gyarukan, and Adolescence Avatar to be precise. Hopefully these will get scanslated.

@aise2i: The "engrish" used in the title states "methed" (which I know is supposed to be method) so it's not exactly a typo per se...

God Seeker interested me the most! ^^
If I have time I'll translate it.

Ashita no Kyouko-san also caught my eye.... I might read that if it's scanalated. :3

God Seeker and Monochrome Myst got my interest the most. The second one's scanlated, will read soon~ but oh I beg someone to do God Seeker really quick *_* I think I just spotted a new top favorite.

A Methed to Make the Gentle World (this could be good as long as there won't be harem or ecchi =_=)
Akatoki Hoshi Residence (I seldom encounter shounen with the main couple canon and married. besides, I like alien stuff)
Art Gallery of Imagination (art will always capture my attention)
Ashita no Kyouko-san (it's soooo Hajimete no Aku)
Holy Brownie (I'm interested on how hilarious their reactions are to humankind)
Mousou Kikou - Adolescence Avatar (a guy wanting to write a magical girl novel . . I'm amused~)
Phantom - Requiem for the Phantom (I love the anime and I think it's better than this but I'll like this since, as I've said, I love the anime xD haha)

Of the ones I've read, Monochrome Myst and Akatoki Hoshi Residence rock. I'm seriously digging the (what seems to me to be an) atypical romance in Akatoki. Skip all the juvenile putzing about with angst? Yes, please.

I'll probably read the Unstable Castle of Tokarev and hope it doesn't turn into some kind of ecchi harem thing later on, and A Methed to Make the Gentle World with the same wish. Well, at least the first chapters of both of those are pretty tame. Anyway, those are my top picks from GENESIS.

*edit: I just read Unstable Castle and liked it a lot.
