One day Shuuto runs into the floating angel Jannu, whose job is to kill "Akumu", demon creatures born from the ill intentions of humans. In order to save her life, Shuuto allows her to take one minute of his life span. To pay him back for the sacrifice, Jannu has made him able to stop human time for one second each day, for sixty days total. Will one extra second each day be enough for Shuuto to change the course of his life?

This is what tethysdust said this week:
Quote:
I didn't get a chance to read Under the Rose, but I thought it also looked like one of the more interesting ones of the group (mystery, murder, revenge, 19th century England, what's not to like?). Dieland and Pudding Empire are the ones to pick if you're into absurd comedy. Also, out of the one-shots, I liked 1 Byou Tenshi the most. It was fun to see how he managed to use his one second a day to make a difference.
Not much interested me this time. A few interested me: 1 Byou Tenshi curious about the premise and how one second can really do anything since it's such a short amount of time. Archaic Chain sounds pretty good, but since it's cancelled I don't know if it's even worth reading... Go Go! Pudding Empire sounds like a fun to read, but the art turns me off a bit. Kikai Tonchibanashi - I like how he can consistently trick ayakashi. Under the Rose sounds like a really nice mystery manga~

Its nice to see Loki. There are scanlations of the first few chapters somewhere around the internet (probably MangaFox?) for anyone interested. :P

Personally myself, I enjoyed the humour of Dieland. Though I doubt anyone would touch such a weird story ...

Under the rose is fairly good, but it takes a little while to get into it. I have uploaded more volumes just in case anyone wanted to read them.

Also I think I might check out "Motto, Ikitai...", the whole body parts sound awesome.

I hope that most of the manga here get scanlated (or at least translated)

Wow that a lot of one shots! I guess no one really like to do one-shots. As for The Mythical Detective Loki Ragnarok, that series has been finished for awhile...I am surprised that no one wanted to scanned it. It was released as anime...

Dieland looked cool, and so did Archaic Chain. :D
