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:
- The name of the manga series
- A summary of the series
- Publishing Status (+ Number of Volumes/Chapters)
This is what tethysdust said this week:
Sora wo Oyogu Onna and Ousama Game stood out the most this time. Sora wo Oyogu Onna is an engaging drama about a woman who is trying to figure out her life. Ousama Game is an intriguing story that is vaguely Battle Royale-ish. I'm really curious to find out who is running the Game and why. Moon Lost is an interesting hard SF story. Sayonara Folklore is kind of a fluffy girl's romance. Rosetta kara no Shoutaijou seemed very peaceful, but it was also full of mysteries.
Here's a note from vyc:
Lillia and Treize - I'm not sure if this series is based on some game or different series but the characters seemed well developed and the plot line was mysterious and fun. Dois Sol - new series on Jump. Sorta like other sports series but with a little twist that not only is there a talented player but the coach is brilliant too. Would be interesting to see what crazy strategy the pair will come up with.
My opinion: Getsu・Sui・Kin wa Swimming
looks like a cute little romance I'd want to check out. :3 However, the one that really piqued my interest is Ousama Game
, which reminds me a little of Enigma and other psychological manga. I definitely hope someone picks this manga up. :) Sora wo Oyogu Onna
sounds like something else I'd be interested in reading~Translated items that need some love/scanlation:sonsofloki
