Several hundred years ago, humans were nearly exterminated by giants. Giants are typically several stories tall, seem to have no intelligence, devour human beings and, worst of all, seem to do it for the pleasure rather than as a food source. A small percentage of humanity survived by walling themselves in a city protected by extremely high walls, even taller than the biggest of giants.

Flash forward to the present and the city has not seen a giant in over 100 years. Teenage boy Elen and his foster sister Mikasa witness something horrific as the city walls are destroyed by a super giant that appears out of thin air. As the smaller giants flood the city, the two kids watch in horror as their mother is eaten alive. Elen vows that he will murder every single giant and take revenge for all of mankind.

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:
"Farmer Mardi" and Tsume Sensou both had a unique kind of style to me. Mardi mostly stuck out in my mind from the artistic style and the weirdness of the story, while the storytelling style in Tsume Sensou stood out.
Here's a note from vyc:
Quote:
Some original series this week. Shingeki no Kyojin - not your average adventure/hero storyline. The tone of the series is very dark and real. Lots of human drama and pretty horrific scenes. unique plot line will keep you interested for a long time. Mayo Chiki - gender swap, secret identity type story. The comedy and the characters, especially the sadistic girl is super great. Nejimaki Shoukougun - very sci-fi type plot line that has a lot of room to grow. The special powers that is yet to be seen might have people interested. The general lessons the author tries to portray is very positive and i like that.
My opinion:
Angel Para Bellum sounds interesting due to the angel/demon conflict aspect. I'll definitely check out Enigma since it really does sound intriguing and there's a scanlation out~ Nejimaki Shoukougun sounds like an uplifting story. Although OTHELLO reminds me a bit of the one-shot Futagami Double, I'd be interested in checking it out. Tsumitsuki sounds like a dark, but good series. I'll definitely check out the scanlation~


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

Shingeki no Kyojin, Blood Soul, and Angel Para Bellum looked interesting to me. Sadly, none of these series have been picked up by a scanlator group.

Angel Para Bellum, Shingeki no Kyojin and Tsumitsuki look great to me. The other "darker" series look pretty good too, but these three stood out to me.
