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:
I really enjoyed Kare to Kanojo no (Otaku)^2. I liked the art, and even though he was really socially awkward, the main character was still an interesting (and funny) guy. The setup of Issho ni Kuraso sort of reminded me of Fruits Basket, but Himeno was a lot less optimistic. At least in the first chapter, I thought her grief was written really well. Mobu was ridiculously over the top, but it made me laugh often . The main character even has silly unicorn gangster hair.
Here's a note from vyc:
Quote:
Ok guys lots of great series this week.
Mahou Shoujo Pretty Bell - a great comedic twist to a traditional little girls genre. Dont be fooled by the story line, the combat scenes and the villans are pretty great. Hanza Sky - my pick for this week. such a great series that i will 100% keep reading it as it is released. if you read it, you will know exactly what i mean. Flying Witch - a one shot that has lots and lots of potential. The author has a modern comedic sense and the peacefulness of the storyline is absolutely great. Sky Blue - another big series to be featured. Not sure yet where the story line is headed yet but the unique story line, great drawing and the comedy makes it a hit for sure.

My opinion:
I'm a bit intrigued by Glory Road although it reminds me of another card game manga. >.> Kare to Kanojo no (Otaku)² sounds like a cute romantic story. Tsumi to Batsu sounds really appealing with the psychological aspect.
