Izuna Hazuki is a 17 year old high school Itako, a group of people in tune with spirits, that works in the city as a Reibaishi. There are evil spirits in the world that take advantage of people’s insecurities, emotional stress and weakness. These evil spirits take over people and enhance their negative energy, eventually harming themselves and the people around them. Some evil spirits make young girls looking to be in the spotlight into arsonists and other spirits tap into men’s sexual desires to make them into monsters. Izuna’s job is to use her ability as a Reibaishi and remove the spirits that are taking advantage of humans. Using her Kuda, a fox like spirit pet that detects and destroys evil spirits, and her own abilities, Izuna shines the light in the darkness between fantasy and reality. The creators of Jigoku Sensei Nube (Hell Teacher Nube) does a great job with this spinoff series and is a must read.

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:
Momoiro was actually kinda funny, I enjoyed it more than most 4-koma. I think the humor was a little bit calmer than normal for the medium. Also, Kento Ankokuden Cestus seemed like it would be pretty neat, if you're into Rome and violence.
Only two really piqued my interests. Those were: Hakuba no Oujisama because I'm always on the look out for a nice romance seinen manga, and Kukulcan - Shijousaidai no Sakusen due to the gender bender aspect (a girl soldier pretending to be a guy).

Translated items that need some love/scanlation:
xdeathcat - Cloth Weaver: Chapter 1 (Needs TLC/PR)
Laika - Kiben Gakuha, Yotsuya Senpai no Kaidan: Chapter 1
Unproductive - Subaru: Volume 1
niiica - Chokotto Hime: Chapter 1


If you haven't done so already, check out the scanlations of the mangas from previous shout outs which have been recently scanlated: sci-fi comedic adventure Hare Guu, dramatic one-shot Yoru Naku Suzume, mystery Kogan no Mouten, slice of life drama Kokou no Hito, horror mystery Kiben Gakuha, Yotsuya Senpai no Kaidan, ecchi comedy one-shot Shinseki Evangelion - Shinji to Asuka to Atsui Hi, supernatural Tokyo Bardo, and slice of life one-shot Karaoke no Hi.

Hakuba no Oujisama is pretty interesting so far. The art reminds me of Hanazawa Kengo... a rather interesting take on generation gaps and romance that blends the real with the ideal from the perspective of a female mangaka.

You should have totally plugged Self too...

Whhaaat!
check out: Kento Ankokuden Cestvs (gotta be some ecchi involved..xD)
and Kento Ankokuden Cestvs (Love roman spartan stuff...it's gonna be epic.)

at least someone shown scanlate chapter one of these two series.

Maybe 'Reibaishi Izuna' a supernatural manga can be looked into..but I think the art is too laid back.
