This is what tethysdust said this week:
Quote:
Of this week's manga, I really enjoyed Star Protector Dog. It was kind of a tearjerker, but definitely worth reading in my opinion. If you're into horror stories, Kyoufu seemed like pretty standard fare. Olympus no Poron is the absurd humor for the week.
I know Angel Beats! Heaven's Door will be popular due to the anime influence; Ryuuhou has an interesting topic and I'd like to see the story scanlated; Cyboy looks like a cute shoujo to check out and if someone is looking for a completely scanlated manga, go check out the ever popular Doraemon Long Story with all 24 volumes now completely scanlated~

Translated items that need some love/scanlation:
xdeathcat - Cloth Weaver: Chapter 1 (Needs TLC/PR)
Laika - Kiben Gakuha, Yotsuya Senpai no Kaidan: Chapter 1
fevrier - Straight No Chaser: One-shot (Needs TLC/PR)
mikeythebest - Baki Scarface: Chapter 1 (Needs TLC/PR)
