He dreams of returning the world to the way it was before the war. The other is an android, who calls herself Moma. Though she has the perfect memory of a robot, she has the emotions of a human. Moma has lived through a hundred years of grief and sadness and does not want to have to watch anyone die again. Is there any hope for the future of their world?

It is the 22th century and technology has advanced to the point that there are more androids than humans because of the declining human population. For that reason, women are considered to be of the highest importance and have an individual robot for the sole purpose of protecting them and taking care of their daily needs. However, when they reach puberty, they are separated from their android to be schooled.

A young girl named Rinne was assigned an android named Ka-In that was made to resemble her late father. Rinne grows more attracted to Ka-In each day and Ka-In in return can not help but feel compassion and protective of her. Rinne proposes that the two run away together and live without the fear of being separated. Ka-In has to make a decision between choosing his love for Rinne or following his duty as an android.

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 Machine Head, to me it felt like a story about never losing hope. It also seems like the premise could support a series. The water wizard one had interesting art. A lot of the fight scenes (which, invariably, involved a lot of flowing water) were drawn with kind of a neat pen-and-ink style.
Here's a note from vyc:
Quote:
Not too many quantity this week but each one is high in quality. Eighth - action/comedy series where the main character is very passionate and wants to do good in the world. Some ecchi scenes and surrounded by girls that he would never get. Neun- reminds me a lot and i mean a lot of evangelion. even has a Asuka type character. i think it will get really interesting soon. fighting monsters and a mysterious super strong girl. Usotsuki Roid - one shot but gives a perspective on how the future might be. romance story for those interested.

My opinion:
I know Last Ranker will probably be popular with the action crowd and To Love-Ru Darkness will please the ecchi crowd with it's return. However, I'm more interested in Shima Shima since I've heard that it's a really good series as well as both Machine Head and Usotsuki Roid, both which seem like touching stories.
