Funny as it may sound, Matoba Isamu is a police officer that dislikes carrying and using guns. Growing up in the US as a child but now living in Tokyo, he seems like a below average police officer that will never see any kind of action in his lifetime. However, Isamu’s true identity is a former professional assassin with more experience than anyone can imagine a young man like him would have. Able to predict incoming shots, dodge bullets, and never without a gun, Isamu was once the best of the best. When he uncovers a plot by a group of elite assassins just as talented as he is to overthrow Japan, Isamu has to start using firearms to kill people.

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)

Here's what vyc had to say:
Ino Atama Gargoyle - from the author that brought you GTO. I loved GTO and I love this new series. The type of comedy, the deep morals attached to each storyline, all that is the same. I really hope to read more of this series.

Kenjuushin - assassin turned police officer who has to go back to killing in order to protect the country. I really liked the artwork and the plot line was interesting. The superhuman abilities of the main character makes this for an awesome read.

My opinion:
I'd want to check out any manga by the mangaka of GTO, so I hope someone scanlates Ino Atama Gargoyle.

Translated items that need some love/scanlation:
myao - Circle Game: Chapter 1
xNothingx - Pajama na Kanojo: Chapter 1

If you haven't done so already, check out the scanlations of the mangas from previous shout outs which have been recently scanlated: school life romance Again!! (MH link), supernatural mystery Youkai Apato no Yuuga na Nichijou (MH link), action adventure fantasy Youkai Apato no Yuuga na Nichijou (MH link).

Just FYI, I added the Gifuu Doudou manga to the database a while ago, but I guess since I didn't put the subtitle in the main title, it didn't turn up in a search when you added it again. Can they be merged? I have 4 translations up for the series.
