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:
The most interesting looking one to me was Kokushi no Shima (there's not too many Kyuushuu islands mysteries out there!). Also, the plot of Romance of Darkness seems kind of interesting. Omoide was kind of neat, and it's not extremely sexually explicit.
Only Kokushi no Shima really interested me although I think Omoide will be popular with fans of NINOMIYA Hikaru (Honeymoon Salad).

I don't like shoujos...
But I did love the shoujo called "Red River" in the past

The cover on "Romance of Darkness" (水に棲む花) By: SHINOHARA Chie - reminds me of "Red River"..the art style...

Too bad is isn't translated...only one mysterious group did some chapters...
I'll check this one out.
