After finding out that Torte is really 3009 years old, the group of friends is introduced to Pudding, a witch friend of Torte who is also in training. She almost immediately accepts Keita’s best friend, Yuuei, as her new master. Suddenly with two witches in their lives, the group of friends has their lives turned upside down. Follow Carat Torte and the mess the witches get into in the human world.

At 12 years old, Kawai Youko is not yet an adult but no longer a child but too young to be called an adolescent yet. Aqua Age is a story about Youko in her “in between” stages of life. Through her many changes in life, including a new school, meeting new people, evolving relationship with friends, physical and emotional changes, Youko learns what it means to be a women.

Everyone was 12 at one point in their life and can relate to a lot of the obstacles Youko encounters, like how you start noticing the opposite sex even though you have known them for a long time or self realization and the need to fit in. Aqua Age is a great way to nostalgically look back at your own past and find the younger you.

Sanpei’s wife, Otsuu recently passed away and his son, Shirou, offers Sanpei to live at his place with his daughter-in-law, Reika, and granddaughter, Nona. Ever since Sanpei married Otsuu, she has taken care of him and Sanpei has never learned how to cook, clean and other household chores. After going through his late wife’s belongings, Sanpei finds a book that she was writing that records all the things she was doing for him. Things from recipes and how to do household chores to dealing with the family that he has never really connected with. Now with the help of the late Otsuu’s book, Sanpei learns how to do all the things she did for him and start making connections with the closest family members he has.

Most readers might not be able to directly understand Sanpei’s struggles of losing a wife after so many decades. However, you may have a grandparent that experienced that kind of tragedy and Sansanroku will help you put yourself in their shoes. A very heartwarming manga that I recommend you to give it a try.

Son Goku and Usagi Kozou were the two of the most feared creatures in the Underworld for their strength and ruthlessness. They ruled all the creatures in the Underworld through brute force and magic, wrecking havoc on the Surface World. The Heavens banished them forever by trapping them inside a boulder and it has been 500 years since they were heard from again.

A women monk, on a mission to warn the king of the Surface World of a grave danger approaching enlists the help of Son Goku and destroys the boulder binding him. Similarly, a passing “martial artist in training” girl named Eilin unintentionally frees Usagi Kozou from the boulder as well. Eilin has a dark secret: she was born from a dragon god impregnating a human woman and because of that, Eilin has a dragon tattoo on her body. Through a turn of events, Son Goku, Usagi Kozou and Eilin are required to deliver the monk’s message to the Surface World’s capital, Tenjiku, where there is now a dark aura surrounding the city that not even the mighty Heavens can see through. What is this dark energy that not even the powerful Heavens can break and how is Eilin’s relationship with a dragon god going to affect the adventure?

This is what tethysdust said this week:
Quote:
Not really much to comment on this week. Orange Delivery, the curling one, was pretty fun.
Not much interested me this time. Only Imperial Guards (saber-tooth tigers?), Kaitaishinsho ZERO (pretty art), Only One (curious what'll happen), and Sansanroku (poor grandpa ;_;)... I'm guessing Mote ne!? will probably be picked up since it's by Amazume Ryuta and he's pretty popular...

Translated items that need some love/scanlation:
Wolsok - Baka to Test to Shoukanjyuu Dya: Chapter 1 (Needs TLC/PR)
xdeathcat - Cloth Weaver: Chapter 1 (Needs TLC/PR)
neocarbunkle - Gu-Pan!: Chapter 1 | Chapter 2 | Chapter 3 (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: comedy sci-fi one-shot HACO, shoujo romantic drama Kare no Ondo, romantic comedy one-shot Anne-chan Tarou, shounen fantasy Mousou Kikou - Adolescence Avatar, boys love one-shot On, and ecchi fantasy Death/Communication.

Apart from others,whose plots seem very generic to me(cliché & cheesy too)...Those two were the ones that caught my interest(but no trans or scan yet...)
Kaitaishinsho ZERO
and
Toukei Ibun...They look pretty good...

I might give a shot for Sansanroku...it looks pretty short and I'll probably enjoy those once in a while slice of life theme...
