Now that they're older, his enthusiasm hasn't changed one whit. Unfortunately, his weird obsession and inability to think about anything other than ping pong has drawn him a lot of negative attention from his classmates. Even Saki, who's also in the ping pong club, doesn't want to be associated with him anymore.

All this changes on the day that they're abducted by ping pong fanatic aliens. The two of them, in addition to some other high-ranked earth ping pong athletes, are forced to try out for a space ping pong tournament. However, if none of them beat their alien opponents, Earth will be destroyed! Now Raiko's ping pong mania may be the only thing standing between the earth and its destruction!

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:
My favorite this week was Akumu no Elevator. It's kind of a character study of horrible people. Though there's no action really (they're stuck in an elevator), their conversation was really interesting. Dream Buster also seemed fun, I really like the idea of following these characters as they sail through people's nightmares. Kurono Mansion was also pretty neat. The interdimensionality aspect kind of reminded me of kingdom hearts, but with mythology.
Here's a note from vyc:
Quote:
Great series this week. Come Wild Vanilla - funny comedy with the type of jokes that i like. Garakuta - seems like a start of a great series. original story line and has a lot of concepts that seems to have potential. characters are cool and the drawings are great. Zettai ... - another comedy with lots of funny scenes and quotes. the characters are typical but the jokes are good.
My opinion:
The only one that really interested me was Akumu no Elevator due to the idea that you wouldn't suspect that ordinary people would be able to do heinous acts.


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



If you haven't done so already, check out the scanlations of the mangas from previous shout outs which have been recently scanlated: psychological action manga Phantom - Requiem for the Phantom (MH link), fantasy gender bender Samurai High School (MH link).
