Note to all scanlators: If you recently started scanlating a new manga series (with about 5 or less chapters released), 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:
A lot of the ones I read this week are based on existing franchises, with the exceptions of Shunkan Heroism and Bakegaku. Kikaitonchibanashi Hanasaka Ikkyuu is in the same world as a previously published one shot of the same name, and Tekken Comic appears to be based on the events of the game Tekken 6. Both Real Onigokko and Kamisama no Puzzle seem to be based on (or to have inspired) live action films. Real Onigokko definitely had the weirdest premise of the week. I enjoyed Bakegaku the most, primarily because it seemed like a neat idea. I think it would do better in a longer format, though, since there was not much time for developing any of the characters in the one shot.
Here's a note from vyc:
Quote:
Pretty sweet series this week. Heavy Object - a mecha series with a female pilot. Enough said. Samurai High School - Plot is interesting, the drawings are nice, appeals to both male and female audiences and the comedy element makes it easy to read. Mashiro no Oto - a music genre series that has a semi serious tone but the comedic characters add a little different flavor to it. Probably the favorite for me this week.
My opinion:
Not much really interested me. Kamisama no Puzzle seems the most interesting of the bunch because of the whole human creating their own universe aspect, although Kikaitonchibanashi Hanasaka Ikkyuu sounds really cute. I hope both versions of that one-shot gets translated/scanlated.


Translated items that need some love/scanlation:
xdeathcat - Cloth Weaver: Chapter 1 (Needs TLC/PR)
mikeythebest - Baki Scarface: Chapter 1 (Needs TLC/PR)
kawaiiusagichan - Vampire Princess Yui: Chapter 1 (Needs PR)
sonsofloki - Young Shima Kousaku: Chapter 1
Mr. Prince - Oumagadoki Doubutsuen: Chapter 1

Heavy Object caught my attention, but when I looked at it, it said Black Maoh...One thing that came to my mind, "But Black Maoh just recently fused with Maoh, so I bet it'll either get cancelled or moved to Maoh, isn't it?" Guess its status is bound to be changed soon...>_>"
