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:
Mori no Asagao was kind of interesting this week, though the art is pretty strange. Everything else seemed pretty standard fare.

Here's a note from vyc:
Quote:
Momoe no Hip - mature mystery series. Think soap opera manga series. Majin Senki Hagun - very well drawn and cool story line. Futuristic soldier in ancient time, kicking ass. Ippon Bambi - sports comedy, hope it stays funny and doesn't turn into a full sports manga or take itself too seriously.
My opinion:
Momoe no Hip is the clear winner of the bunch. I love a good mystery and this one sounds pretty good~ Sorairo Square looks like a cute romance manga.



Translated items that need some love/scanlation:
