Azumaya Kotori was a typical teenage girl who went to school, hung out with friends, and had a crush on a boy. Then, one day, she gets hit by a truck and dies, but her spirit still wanders this dimension. It turns out that the boy Kotori had a crush on, Kusakabe Aruto, is spiritually attuned and can see Kotori even though no one else can. Aruto is able to find out that Kotori is not really dead but just in a coma and her soul, her current form, has escaped from her physical body. To return back to normal, she has to find a way to combine herself together again. In the meantime, Kotori ends up staying under the same roof as Aruto and his family who can also see her. Although the circumstances aren’t ideal, Kotori is delighted and nervous about spending intimate time with her crush.Thanks go to vyc for the summary.

Yokodera is just like every teenage boy: perversion is in his nature. He can’t help but look up girls' skirts and fantasize about them. However, in his case, every time he does something perverted, it somehow gets turned around and misunderstood as something positive for the community. Sick of being so perverted, he tries to shake free of it by going to a special part of town. On top of a hill, away from the town and at the foot of a large tree, there is a wooden sculpture of a beckoning cat that is said to have special powers. Instead of bringing a wish to the user like a typical beckoning cat, it takes something from the user, and, in Yokodera’s case, his perversion. Still doubtful, he uses the beckoning cat thinking that it couldn’t hurt to try, but, little does he know, his life is about to make a turn to the unexpected.Thanks go to vyc for the summary.

The real first-year ace, the super-serious, highly-skilled, irritable Kageyama, has no patience for clueless Hinata's ambition. Will Hinata be able to find a useful place on his new team?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:
- The name of the manga series
- A summary of the series
- Publishing Status (+ Number of Volumes/Chapters)
This is what tethysdust said this week:
My favorite this week was actually With Liz, the 4-koma. There's something about foreigner-in-japan humor that really makes me laugh. Mitokon gets my "truly bizarre" award for the week. To warn you, it's surprisingly violent, and has a really, really strange plot.
Here's a note from vyc:
Nothing really stood out for me this week. Couple comedies and Hentai Ouji to Warawanai Neko seems the most promising out of the bunch this week.
My opinion: Hentai Ouji to Warawanai Neko
actually sounds interesting, despite the name although I hope it stays as a nice romance manga. Mitokon
sounds pretty cute too. I'm interested in finding out why the 'princess' is running away from home or if the main character got duped. :3Translated items that need some love/scanlation:sonsofloki
