As Ashita tries to revive the mansion in remembrance of his parents, he is surprised by a young girl looking vampire named Noi and her servant Sesera who claims to own the place.

According to Noi, she lent the mansion to Ashita’s great grandfather in return for maintaining the building until Noi returns. As a vampire, Noi has super strength, the ability to turn into mist and can cast various spells. She has a powerful dark aura that attracts evil spirits and, because of that, Noi has had to constantly be on the move. But because of that, she has been abandoned by her family and friends.

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 enjoyed reading Hakuchuu Yamu. I'm not sure what to say that wouldn't ruin the story, but I really liked the way it concluded. Drifting Net Cafe also seemed like it could be very interesting. I only had the first chapter, but apparently the sci-fi mystery part starts right after that.
Here's a note from vyc:
Quote:
Detective Joe - typical PI story with a little twist. The lessons in this story makes it pretty good though. Knights of Zehn - adventure story. would like to see how things turn out and story progresses. Kaichou...Kaze - shoujo storyline with a deep theme throughout the plot. great for people looking for emotions in the characters. Ashita no Familia - best series this week in my opinion. Noi's power looks really cool and I bet there will be lots of new interesting characters.
My opinion:
The pick of the batch for me would definitely be Drifting Net Cafe. Looking it up, it appears that there's a huge mystery. The others that appear somewhat interesting to me would be Master Call. It seems like it'd be a fun read. Tsurugi no Otome to Shounen no Tate might be interesting, but I fear it's a generic one-shot. Ashita no Familia sounds like a more PG version of Dance in the Vampire Bund.


Translated items that need some love/scanlation:
xdeathcat - Cloth Weaver: Chapter 1 (Needs TLC/PR)
mikeythebest - Baki Scarface: Chapter 1 (Needs TLC/PR)

Rather...shouldn't you be able to ask for the raw from c_k himself? I mean, if the person who wrote the summaries can write the summary, then they should more or less know where to find the raw, commonly speaking...but yeah, otherwise, learn how to use the IRC. You can get a whole lots of things in there... .-.

I do use IRC, thanks for your updates Rena-chan, but what I normally find is established series. I rarely find new manga or manga that flies under the radar... well, it is just 1 channel I go to :p
Any other recommendations?
