This is what tethysdust said this week:
Bouken Erekitetou has some nice art, particularly on the scenery. The story thus far seems really simple, though. Giragira was a pretty interesting story--it's usually girls who are put in that predicament in manga. I liked Juujika no Majutsushi, it's starting out fairly episodic, but with very interesting cases that aren't simply 'monsters'.
Here's what vyc had to say:
Deban Desu yo Kondou San - First thing I noticed was the incredibly clean artwork. I liked the plot even though the main character is a girl attempting to be girly. Even guys can read it and enjoy it. Nice balance of sexy/comedy and romance
Soshite Fune wa Yuku - Everybody thinks of one piece when you say pirate manga but this series is just as interesting imo. Must more comedy is integrated into this even in the most serious and tense scenes. I liked it personally.
My opinion: Deban desu yo? Kondou-san!
sounds like it might be a cute read~ Giragira
sounds like an interesting concept since I've never really heard of older men as hosts. Zerozaki Soushiki no Ningen Shiken
might interest people since it's from the author NisiOisiN, the author of Bakemonogatari and Medaka Box.Translated items that need some love/scanlation:myao
