Nana to Kaoru (Arashi) (ナナとカオル)
By: AMAZUME Ryuta

Demographics: Seinen
Status: 1 Chapter (Ongoing)
Manga Details Page: Here
Raws: None on MH
Translations: None
Scanlations: Chapter 1

Nana is a normal teenage girl in her last year of high school getting ready for college admissions tests during her summer vacation, with the exception of one thing: She takes "breathers" with her childhood friend, Kaoru. An encounter with Tachibana, a worker she knows at an S&M shop, brings Nana further into the S&M world as she learns what it means to be master and slave.

This “Arashi” series begins 8 months in the future of the Young Animal version, with Nana and Kaoru in the summer of their final year of high school.

This series uses a different support cast & different location setting than the original serialization, and as such it doesn't really spoil anything from the main series.

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:
I liked the Hunting of the Snark. It has a lot of Lewis Carroll references in it (as you might guess from the title), but is done in a realistic style. I really liked the characters, and would like to learn more about Keiko's story. Yumeki was pretty disturbing, and I'm kind of bewildered as to where it could go from the first chapter.
Here's a note from vyc:
Quote:
Pretty good ones this week. The ones that stood out where:
Kamisama no Memo chou - still the first chapter so it is hard to tell how she solves the case but willing to stick along till then. Nanana Universe - adds a bit of a romantic twist to an other wise straight sci fi series. I think it might do well.

My opinion:
The most interesting in this batch seems to be The Hunting of the Snark, probably due to the woman getting revenge bit. XD The description reminds me a bit of Gunjo. The other one that caught my eye was Yumeki. I can't imagine how people would become so obsessed with someone. I'll probably check out the Nana to Kaoru spin-off as well. XD
