The human race has been infected by a strain of bacteria that was originally isolated in South America but has spread all over the world. The symptoms start with fever and vomit and eventually ends with the person in a coma. However, those who awake from that coma are those with incredible intelligence and they're soon able to see that they are in fact being ruled by higher beings that they thought only existed in fairy tales like demons and witches.

Arthur Pyuty was a witch who ruled a kingdom under the guise of a human until the side effects of the bacteria revealed her true nature to humans and they started revolting. In fact, Arthur and her kind, who used to hold high political power in society, are now being hunted down. Arthur and her assistant Ataru, a zombie, must move from place to place in order to avoid humans but also so that they can find a way to make things go back to how it was before.

Chanto Kaitemasu kara! (ちゃんと描いてますからっ!)

Demographics: Seinen
Status: 1 Volume (Ongoing)
Manga Details Page: Here
Translations: None
Scanlations: None

As a manga author of a semi known series, Hirahara Daichi has the talent for coming up with stories, but is incredibly lazy and irresponsible. That leaves his two daughters, middle school student Ayumi and the even younger Sora, to pick up the slack. With the help of the assistant, Akane, the two kids are forced to draw and complete the series every month if they want an income for the household, a task no child should burden themselves with. On top of that, they must do this without people finding out because it will ruin the credibility of Daichi as an author and put a stop to the series. If being a teenager wasn’t hard enough, add to that the pressure of meeting deadlines for a national comic magazine.

In order to solve the problem, she enrolls him at a boxing gym, hoping the exercise will make him lose weight. At first, Taichi is very hesitant about the whole idea. Soon, though, his trainer Kurata's tough encouragement makes him feel like he might actually be able to become good at this sort of thing. But while the boxers at the gym accept him as a fattie coming in to jump rope and hit punching bags, will he be able to get them to accept him as a boxer-in-training? And does he have what it takes to become an actual boxer?

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:
Moetai (Burning Fats) was probably my favorite of this week. It was kind of fun watching that poor kid gain self-esteem and skills. Hajimari no Hako had some stories worth reading, too. Manga de wakaru[...] was informative and funny.
Here's a note from vyc:
Quote:
Arthur Pyuty was my favorite series this week. The storyline is really original. It uses the perspective of the "bad guy" or the anti-hero view of the overall plot. Although the content is mature and the drawings are graphic, how it shows psychology and human flaws is great. A must read for anyone and everyone.
My opinion:
Arthur Pyuty wa Yoru no Majo sounds kind of interesting - the idea that we're actually being controlled. Moe-tai: Burning Girls reminds me of the manga RRR so I'd be willing to check it out~


Translated items that need some love/scanlation:
myao - Circle Game: Chapter 1

Arthur Pyuty sounds interesting and I love the concept of the overlord POV, but... I can't help thinking of the name of the guy in that one Monty Python sketch, the marriage counselor one...
