Abunai! Tosho Iinchou! (あぶない!図書委員長!)
By: NISHIKAWA Rosuke

Demographics: Seinen
Status: 1 Volume (Complete)
Manga Details Page: Here
Raws: Volume 1
Translations: None
Scanlations: None

Abunai Tosho Iinchou takes place at a middle school and is a comedy mainly focused on “otaku” culture. The story touches on everything from girls with glasses, to maid outfits, to Gundam machines and Yuri culture. The manga starts at the school library (Toshokan) where we are introduced to Fumimi, the new chairman of the library club and Takayama, a member of the club. We are then exposed to the other wild clubs that exist in the school like the “Shake” club who are just a bunch of horny boys to the girls-only club where we see lesbian scenes. Overall, the storyline is great and the different otaku cultures make it a very funny manga.

On top of that, Ichino discovers that many of the other female workers don't even like to watch anime, and are embarrassed to be caught even talking about it. Ichino and Nita continue to give it their all, and stretch their meager paychecks as far as possible, all to accomplish their dreams of becoming successful animators!

Asuka Jun is the daughter of the great Asuka family zaibatsu, and her monstrous dragon-lady of a mother is insistent that she marry someone picked by her parents, as is traditional for an Asuka family daughter. Luckily, Jun is a martial-arts skilled, body-building, powerful woman, so she's able to stand up for what she wants, which is simply to live her own life and eventually marry someone of her choice. But Jun's female relatives, who also seem to be body-builders, are dead set that all Jun needs is to be sexually awakened, by force if necessary.

Strangely, it is the men in Jun's life who are her only allies. Her father tries to help her, but he's pretty cowed by his monster-wife. Jun's closest ally is her new butler, a friendly, good-natured young man called Oonami Kuratta, who is unfailingly loyal to Jun and treats her with a respect she has rarely encountered in her life.

Later, he goes along with his friend Akira to take drawings of another old house that's going to be demolished.

In the future, in a rush much like the American gold rush, many people immigrated to our solar system's asteroid belt to mine the asteroids. A society developed out in the belt, and the citizens, who were generally looked down upon by earth citizens, came to be known as "Belters". Eventually, this community sought independence from the earth, ushering in a war. The Belters could not stand against the earth military, and they were defeated, falling back under the harsh control of the earth.

Twenty years later, an old man called Bou discovered a still-living baby in a tank within the wreckage of a ship from the war. He named the boy Cross, after the Belter's greatest hero, and raised him with the hope that he would grow to become a messiah for his people. At the age of ten, Cross is captured by earth soldiers and forced to leave his guardian's care. What connection does this young boy have to the legendary hero Cross? Will he be able to pass through the trials that lie before him, and fulfill the expectations he does not even know that his people have of him?

All problems are made to be solved by excessive use of military weaponry! Or at least, that's what college student Nomoto-kun seems to believe. He's commonly called "Meisai-kun" (Camoflague-kun) by his classmates, due to the fact that he wears fatigues to class every day. Whether it's helping a classmate throw off a stalker, killing a wild animal, or going to the beach on holiday, Meisai-kun, his overly-militaristic friends and his enviable stash of weapons (and live ammo) are up to the task!

His friends from class, two relatively normal girls called Tomo and Rie, keep him more or less connected to his normal life as a college student. Unfortunately, they often find themselves being pulled into his ridiculous, over-dramatic, military-eque situations!

Possession Tracer (ポゼッション・トレーサ)

Raws: Volume 1
Translations: None
Scanlations: None

Kuon Hizuka is the chief of the Spirit Investigation division in the Police Department. Her ability to possess people through the transfer of her spirit is used to locate and apprehend criminals. Her recent assignment is to stop the assassination plot of the Kueb ambassador. The mission is successful but during the course of the arrest, Kuon detains two women who were helping the assassination group, Chiaki and Tokio, who also have the ability to possess people. Chiaki is forced into the Spirit Investigation division in order to keep her partner, Tokio from being charged with terrorism.

Possession Tracer has a really great concept for a story and has the potential to really capture the reader. The comedic scenes keep the story fresh and the entire “possessing” ability is really deep and has not been fully explored yet which makes it a very interesting manga.

Many different anthropomorphic predator and prey species are intermingling in a fantastical African savanna society! It is a strictly structured society with many rules, such as those governing when and where a predator is allowed to hunt their prey.

One lion, Leon, does not quite fit into the role nature has chosen for him. He doesn't grow his mane out, and, despite his physical strength, he shows no real interest in establishing territory and acquiring a harem of lionesses. But the most abnormal quirk of all is that Leon is a vegetarian lion!

His tiger companion (who has a bit of a crush on him), is firmly of the opinion that herbivores exist to be eaten, but she manages to mostly put up with his vegetarianism. Even so, Leon's decision to take a frightened gazelle under his protection might be pushing the tiger's uneasy tolerance a bit too far. What's more, the jackals tracking the gazelle appear to also have some kind of business with Leon...

Upon hearing this, many of the students hoped for an adorable cat-eared girl, but this is a different sort of catgirl. Instead of cute ears or a tail, she has a cat-face... cat eyes, cat nose, and a cat mouth. Therefore, instead of being adorable, she's scary and inscrutable, to classmates and teachers both! Particularly terrorized is Yamada Hana, who sits next to her. Hana would like to get along with Neneko, but can't help thinking the cat girl is treating her like some sort of servant. Will the students be able to get past Neneko's aloof and frightening demeanor and actually get to know her?

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:
Only a few stood out to me this week. Meisai-kun was the funniest of all the comedies to me, it was just so ridiculously overdramatic! Lock-On is pretty funny as well. And Mega Cross would be my favorite of the serious ones, it's a nice traditional SF story. Yamataika would be really interesting for anyone into Okinawan mythology/Ryukyuan religion.
Not many of the mangas interested me, but how Anime ga Oshigoto! shows the behind the scenes of the anime industry would be something nice to learn about. If you're looking for a new sports manga, check out Baggataway since it has 3 chapters out already, although it hasn't really shown any real 'rivals' yet. I'd want to read Lingerie Publicity because I like genderbenders. I already checked out the scanlation out for Lock On! and it seems like a cute series that kind of replaced Ane-Doki in Jump. There's a one-shot too so you should definitely check that out. Mahoromi - Jikuu Kenchiku Genshitan's art looks good and it's from the mangaka of Acony so I'd definitely want to check it out~ Natsume Vurdalak! sounds really cute with both a guy and a girl falling for a girl along with a mix of werewolves.


Translated items that need some love/scanlation:
Wolsok - Baka to Test to Shoukanjyuu Dya: Chapter 1 (Needs TLC/PR)

fevrier - Smargs won't Sing: One-shot (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: fantasy mystery Time Eliminator, school life drama A Methed to Make the Gentle World, ecchi slice of life Watashi no Ouchi wa Honya-san, school life mystery Unstable Castle of Tokarev, gender bender fantasy manga Ame Nochi Hare, supernatural mystery Monochrome Myst, and sci-fi romantic drama Akatoki Hoshi Residence.

Ginga Sengoku Gun Yuuden Rai.

I read this manga in my language. If you like any mangas like Three Kingdoms, you will like it, especially with its style.
Only one thing's ridiculous... They have battleships with cannons, but why the soliders still use swords and lances!?

Moreover, it's not only 1 volume, but 20+ volumes at least!!

I'm a big Inugami Sukune fan, but that Workbox thing is just a collection of oneshots that don't seem her style at all. The first story is set in the future with some kind of anthromorphic dog character. A later story has gender bending. There are also old people and some dude who has a nasty rat tail hairstyle. The stories might be good, but I'm too shallow to read something if I don't dig the art.
