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 only ones I really enjoyed this time were the pretty standard shounen ones, Togari and Metallica-Metalluca. Both of those are basically about some special kid who has essentially magic powers and rescues people, but they were pretty entertaining.
We also have a note from vyc:
Quote:
Soramiyo seems very interesting with the whole explaining the universe and heart warming at the same time but unfortunately it was not serialized. Dive in the Vampire Bund might become very popular with the whole vampire craze going on. The storyline is pretty cool with the vampire society, the characters have lots of room to develop and the drawings are nice. Reminds me a lot of the Blade/Underworld movies.
I'd be really interested in seeing Dive in the Vampire Bund scanlated, especially since the prequel, Dance in the Vampire Bund has an anime... Harumagedon sounds kind of cute and Oniwaka to Ushiwaka Edge of the World looks intriguing... Soramiyo sounds like a cute story to read, and the art in Togainu no Chi looks good~

Two mangas based off Shinsengumi...-___-"

But Oniwaka doesn't get scanlated yet? I mean, it's already about a month since it started, and considered that it's weekly...and of the GB duo...though it might be just because it's Kodansha manga so both the raw and the scanlation can't be uploaded to MH...-_-"

And here I thought people would be smart enough to check the forums to see if there is a thread for the manga... -__-;;;

Oniwaka to Ushiwaka always had raws. The manga is already up to chapter 4 in Japan. You just don't know where to look.

Ah, upon seeing "None" I thought it's nowhere in MH and nobody in MH has them, so I didn't think of checking.

But now I know, so thanks =D Yay! Sorry for being stupid though. ^^; ehehehe

@sapphire-pyro: If it's featured in the shout out and it says none for raw, the raw is available somewhere - most likely it's available in a certain IRC channel...
