One day, while practicing one of her songs at a piano store, Hako comes to the attention of Ren, a boy her age who is the vocalist of his own rock band. He promptly decides that she is the element his band has been missing, and he must acquire her at all costs. How far will Ren and Hako's ambition and dedication to music be able to carry them?

Kagami Yuuki has managed to become a scholarship student in a high-class high school. Unfortunately, thanks to his gender-ambiguous name, the teacher Kakinozaki Ayana has registered him as a girl! It's apparently an uncorrectable mistake, so now Yuuki must live in the girl's dormitory of his new (co-ed) high school.

At least Ayana's willing to take responsibility for her mistake; she volunteers to be his roommate. As one would guess, he and Ayana must make sure none of the other girls in the dorm find out he's actually a boy. Therefore, except for when he's in his classes, Yuuki has to cross-dress, or else both he and his teacher will be kicked out of the school and dorm!

In the year 1935, German Nazi agents infiltrate Mexico in order to locate and capture Kukulkan (also known as Quetzalcoatl, the feathered serpent) an ancient Aztec god believed to be sleeping in the country encased by Jade. But before they can find Kukulkan, who rests in the form of a beautiful woman, she is accidentally resurrected by the Japanese archeologist Wakisaka Iori and his native guide Carlo!

Luckily for Wakisaka, he and the goddess he has awoken seem to get along with each other quite well. But the threat of the German Nazis and the looming World War on the horizon are not the only problems Wakisaka and Kukulkan must face. They also must find a way to handle the inevitable resurrection of Kukulkan's eternal rival god, Tezcatlipoca (the "Smoking Mirror", often depicted as a jaguar).

In ancient Rome, the public bath architect Lucius was running into a serious problem in his professional career. Though he was well trained, his designs just weren't cutting edge enough to please the people of Rome. As a result, he lost his job. In a truly despondent state, he went to a bathhouse with one of his friends and submerged himself in the water.

But then, all of a sudden, a hole appeared and sucked Lucius through a time warp to a public bath in modern day Japan! Lucius was amazed by all the wondrous things he saw in this strange world! Sooner than he might have liked, he slipped away from Japan and found himself once again waking up back home. But now that he knows the secret of underwater-time-travel, he can get all sorts of "edgy" ideas from modern day Japan to fuel his career as a bathhouse architect in ancient Rome!

Realizing that he can't remain a Hokkaido "yankee" forever, 22-year-old Matoba Ryousuke has moved to Tokyo to enter the next stage of his life. Tokyo does not seem to be the exciting and welcoming city he expected, though. On a whim, he decides to take the elevator of a posh hotel up to the top to see the city, when he suddenly meets the lovely Kanou Remi. Remi, a world famous fashion designer, actually lives in the hotel, and shows Ryousuke brief and unexpected kindness.

Determined to meet her again, Ryousuke goes with the only thing he really knows about her; that she has been to the Kabukichou district Romeo Host Club. But can an ex-thug, country boy like Ryousuke really become a host with all the other cultured, fancy bishounen types at the Romeo Club? And, more importantly, will this route be able to bring him closer to Remi?

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:
My favorite of this small group would be Yaoh. It felt sort of like an inverse Memoirs of a Geisha to me. Hisuikyou Kitan was kind of neat, I don't think there are very many mangas that feature Aztec mythology. Also, Ai no Uta ni Naritai was set in the 80s, which was neat (the manga is older than I am, but the art was still pretty nice). It makes me wonder what the music their band is playing would have actually sounded like in an anime.
Nothing really piqued my interest except for Terumae・Romae with it's unique art and Asa made Jugyou Chu! because it's a gender bender, but the teacher's chest makes me go O.o. T.R.A.P. might be an interesting sports manga to check out if it gets scanlated seeing as there doesn't seem to be *that* many soccer mangas that I know of...

Translated items that need some love/scanlation:
xdeathcat - Cloth Weaver: Chapter 1 (Needs TLC/PR)
neocarbunkle - Gu-Pan!: Chapter 1 | Chapter 2 | Chapter 3 0 up to c7 (Needs TLC/PR)
fevrier - Smargs won't Sing: One-shot (Needs TLC/PR)
ilcm26 - Kiben Gakuha, Yotsuya Senpai no Kaidan: Chapter 1 (Ask Permission)

If you haven't done so already, check out the scanlations of the mangas from previous shout outs which have been recently scanlated: school life comedy one-shot SWOT, romantic fantasy Love Allergen, sci-fi action Suzuro's Logfile, sports comedy Orange Delivery, and school life 4koma comedy Baka to Test to Shoukanjyuu Dya.

Terumae Romae kinda reminds me of Kyou Kara Maoh! of how Yuri goes between the demon and the human world. In, water.
T.R.A.P looks good. Reminds me of the Prince of Tennis.
Hisuikyou Kitan is interesting though.

T.R.A.P.'s the main one that caught my interest. Wouldn't mind working on it if someone were to TL it. However, the story almost seems too close to Area no Kishi.
