This is what tethysdust said this week:
Oshie Syllabus was pretty cute. It is slightly different from the usual setup, since the strange magic girl manifests for a teenage girl instead of a boy. I actually enjoyed Dream Club. Usually I dislike the "tsundere" type manga, but I thought they showed Mian's debilitating insecurity pretty well. Also, she was a dynamic character who wanted to become a better person. Channel wa sono mama could develop into something interesting. The other three are very special interests manga, by which I mean they were very information-based. Read Suugaku girl if you really want to read about math, Homecenter Tenko if crafting stuff interests you (though there was a bit more of a story in this one), and Kyoto Uzumasa Koushinkyoku if you're really into Fukumoto Seizou and historical Japanese cinema.
Here's a note from vyc:
Kicking off the new year with some good series!! Little Busters - spinoff series off of an already popular game/anime/manga. Sorta a new plot line of video game world. Great for people who already know the characters AND people just picking it up for the first time. Kazoku Sentai Knock 5 - family of superhero. Lots of these kind of plot lines even in the US main stream media (No Ordinary Family). Should check it out. Torokeru Tokkoujo - highlights the ups and downs of a welder's life. Funny in a sad and a little pathetic way? Oresama to Kooni - erotic hentai series. Sorta ironic since the main character can't have sex but there is lots of it in this. Kurogane - no relation to another series with the same name (as far as i know). Great drawing with a cliche but good story line. would like to see it picked up and serialized.
My opinion: For some reason or other none of the manga really popped out at me, although I guess I'd try out Suugaku Girl
(math geek~)... I'm sure someone will jump on and scanlate Oresama to Kooni
