On August 10 of 2019, humanity received a signal, which was verified for its integrity by hundreds of scientists, from an alien life form containing one message: let us meet on Mars on July 7, 2035. Thus began the creation of a space agency representing Earth as a whole named ST&RS. From there, things progressed quickly with man re-landing on the moon in 2022 and constructing many space stations orbiting Earth and the moon. The Space Academy was created to train the upcoming generation of ST&RS.

The same August 10th that Earth received the message, Shirafune Maho spoke his first words and it was “Mars.” Since then, Maho has been an astronomy freak who has nothing but the universe on his mind. He decides he is going to apply for the Space Academy along with his childhood friend, Hoshihara Meguru, and recent transfer and super smart classmate, Amachi Wataru. The trio begins their almost impossible journey of being accepted into the school where only 1% of the applicants are allowed into the academy.

Hikawa Satsuki has been discarded by his traveling grandfather, who is his only living relative. Now he lives alone in a beautiful mansion, full of thoughts of his own worthlessness. One day, his grandfather sends him a strange book, which he learns is called a Tablet. He opens it, releasing a burst of light, to find that it contains mostly incomplete pictures of the Tarot.

Almost immediately, an angry young English woman called Lady appears, insistent that she is the guardian of the book! She explains that the pictures on the pages are called Tableaux, and that they represent summonable entities of amazing power. The incomplete pictures represent entities that are not successfully trapped in the book. She also angrily explains that the light he saw earlier was him accidentally letting loose one of them into the world! Now Lady has forcibly recruited Satsuki to her service, and the two of them-- plus the remaining Tableaux in the Tablet-- have to collect all of the dangerous freed entities!

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:
My favorite this week was Tokkou no Shima. It seems that the potential suicide pilots will present a very interesting point of view. Otoko no Isshou felt like it could build into a really effective story, though it was a little bit slow at the beginning. On the other hand, Tableau Gate is very action-filled, and seems like it would be interesting for people looking for a fast-paced supernatural action/adventure story.
Here's a note from vyc:
Quote:
Loved the series this week for me. Love-Lab - A school girl comedy romance that was really fresh to me. I really like the interactions between the two main characters. It seems really natural and was very funny. Not Lives - Series just stared so it is hard to tell but I think it has potential. Would consider keeping an eye on it to see how the storyline progresses and how the characters develop. Stars - new series from Jump so you know it's worth checking out without me saying anything. Very original and cool concept. Characters are great and I really like that it has a plotline bigger than the main characters but still has the ability to have a subplot that includes the characters well.
My opinion:
Any fan of Usagi Drop or other Unita Yumi manga would want to check out Kiki. I'd be interested in reading Not Lives since I'm always up for checking out gender benders. I'm sure St&rs will get scanlated just because it's a Jump manga, although I have no idea how they'll make astronomy popular... Tokkou no Shima would sound like a great serious manga to check out and see the thinking behind someone sacrificing their life for their country.



If you haven't done so already, check out the scanlations of the mangas from previous shout outs which have been recently scanlated: ecchi fantasy Maji-Bra!? (MH link), romantic comedy Hageruya! (MH link).

I think that ecchi would cover it a little better. St&rs, Tokkou no Shima look good though.

interesting one is Otoko no Isshou

Tableau Gate : its idea is taken from a great series

Tokkou no Shima : historical and quite dark in nature not my taste.

al other are just ecchi series in ecchi series

30-sai no Hoken Taiiku Koi no Step Up Hen is somewhat better

I figured Kiki was done by that artist. The style is definitely there.

Unita Yumi is one of my favorite mangaka, I'm sure Kiki is excellent. Tokkou no Shima also looks interesting too. I enjoyed chapter one of St&rs, I'm looking forward to translations of chapter 2. Pantser Princess looks like epic fail, like every negative manga stereotype combined into a single a series.
