Imamura Kinichiro reluctantly wakes up one day to attend his high school graduation. He'd made no friends in high school and joined no clubs. Everyone was afraid of him, due to his long blond hair and surly attitude. Reflecting on his awful high school years, he remembers a girl from the Japanese cheering squad that he saw in the welcome ceremony three years ago. Searching for the old cheering squad's clubroom, he accidentally startles a classmate, causing them both to fall down a flight of stairs...

When he wakes up, it's the morning of his first day of high school, three years ago. As he confusedly goes through his day, he's able to correct a lot of the mistakes he made the first time around, such as actually interacting with the cheering squad girl, Usami Yoshiko! But did he really travel in time, or is this all just a dream he's having while his body is lying unconscious somewhere? Could he really have the chance to go through his high school years again?

A new student, Kaname Moka, transfers into his school and as she is fairly pretty, Isamu asks her out.

Moka mishears what he says and thinks he wants to challenge her, as she grew up boxing. In fact, Moka is an amazing fighter and can even take down 5 middle school boys at once. Although Isamu can’t stand her violent personality and she can’t stand him for having so much pride, they start to grow attracted to each other. But then Isamu finds out that not only is Moka more athletic than him from all her years of boxing, she's also much smarter than him. Will he able to get over his overly sensitive pride and dive into a romantic relationship?

Hachiken left his home in Sapporo in order to go to an agricultural high school out in the Hokkaido countryside. His plan involved leaving home to live in a dorm, acing the simple courses, and easily surpassing all of his inferior classmates. However, his new school turns out to be not quite like he expected. All of the other students have distinct areas of expertise and chosen future careers as veterinarians, dairy farmers, and so on. They don't understand why Hachiken would even come to their school without a similar dream. Also, the un-athletic Hachiken is horrified to discover that clubs are mandatory, and they're all activity-based. He had thought that he would leave his agricultural classmates in the dust, but will he even be able to keep up?

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:
The one that stuck out this week was 'Again'. It was actually a very interesting, well-written story. I hope he has a real second chance, and it is not just a dream. Silver Spoon also seemed like it could be interesting. It looked like it was going to be about how people who hold a non-academic specializations are not necessarily dumb at all.
Here's a note from vyc:
Quote:
All the series this week were good. All comedy and romantic comedy series. Buyuden - all I need to say is everyone needs to read at least the first few chapters. Go Go Kochira...Jimusho - comedy about a very odd and lazy detective agency. Super funny.
My opinion:
Again!! sounds interesting - correcting the mistakes you made in high school. Yay for a strong girl protaganist in Buyuden~ I will definitely be checking out Silver Spoon for the sole purpose because it's from the mangaka of FMA~~~
