In the 1950s, an old woman was brutally murdered on the face of a clock tower by her adopted daughter. Two years later, the clock tower is known as the 'ghost tower' and it is supposedly haunted. Through an unusual series of events, a young NEET man named Amano Taichi is attacked by someone or something in the same clock tower, and finds himself bound to the clock face to be killed in the same way as the old woman. Luckily for Amano, he doesn't meet the same fate. He's rescued by a mysterious person who claims his name is Tetsuo.
Tetsuo is searching for a treasure that is connected with the ghost tower, and he wants Taichi to be his partner. Taichi, whose life has mostly consisted of poverty, loneliness, and pornography, is enticed by the idea of gaining extreme wealth. He's further convinced when a house fire leaves him without a home and depends on Tetsuo's charity. The adventure is going to be very dangerous, since the same 'enemies' who attacked Taichi before seem certain to try something again! Not to mention, Taichi really knows very little about his new partner, including "his" true gender!Thanks go to tethysdust for the summary.

This is what tethysdust said this week:
Ikarosu no Yama was my favorite this week. I thought it was really well written, and extreme mountain climbing is a pretty neat sport to read about. Yuureitou was also very intriguing. The main character (Taichi) is kind of a jerk, but the premise is cool.
Here's what vyc had to say:
Dr Duo is a brand new series that has a plot I've never read before. A genius surgeon's ghost and a high school kid team up to become the greatest and youngest surgeon ever. I liked the first chapter and hope it continues to interest me in the following storyline.
My opinion: Uramiya Honpo
sounds a little like Hell Girl minus the Hell part. Yuureitou
sounds a bit interesting. Translated items that need some love/scanlation:myao
