Welcome to the next New Manga Shout Out. With the no-raws/scans rule on MH, you have to work a bit to find these mangas. People were busy with new years so just four manga this week. ^^;; Remember, if you like any of the series, favorite them. Don't forget to also thank the various people who feed your manga addiction. ^_^ Translators and Scanlators, please check out these series and see if you can spread some more manga love~

We're still looking for people who know Japanese and want to help write summaries for our manga database and for the shout out. Please PM me if you want to help out. Now onto the series~

Kawase Takashi has discovered that he will be learning about caring for animals from the legendary Haruo Minami. It's rumored that she's able to converse with animals, and they tend to all flock around her eagerly. However, she's also very unconventional and more than a little strange. For instance, she dreams of one day ruling a country full just of animals. Will Kawase be able to learn anything useful from such an odd teacher?

Tsukihi is absolutely obsessed with an old mecha anime featuring the moon robot Gradolus.

Soon, however, she will find herself coming into more contact with the actual robots of the moon. Will she be able to see the mecha Gradolus in real life?!

Thanks go to tethysdust for the summary.

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:
Sumikko seems like its going to be a very thoughtful, philosophical story, and I'd like to see where it goes from here.

My opinion:
Not much selection this week, but I agree with tethysdust and think that Sumikko looks the best of the bunch, especially the part where a kid thinks of himself as God~ Well, I hope everyone had fun on new years and I hope the 2011 bring us more interesting manga~

Translated items that need some love/scanlation:
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: fantasy adventure Cloth Weaver (MH link), sci-fi slice of life one-shot Succeed (MH link).

Ah, sorry, my summary has a bit of ambiguity there... 'he' is the protagonist. The kid thinks the main character is god.
