Welcome to the next New Manga Shout Out. With the no-raws/scans rule on MH, you have to work a bit to find these mangas. This week features kids becoming middle schoolers, a program used to murder people and a woman with daddy issues. Remember, if you like any of the series, favorite them. Don't forget to also thank the various people who feed your manga addiction. ^_^ Translators and Scanlators, please check out these series and see if you can spread some more manga love~

We're still looking for people who know Japanese and want to help write summaries for our manga database and for the shout out. Please PM me if you want to help out. Now onto the series~

Aoharu! (アオハルッ!)
By: Mimori

Demographics: Shoujo
Status: 3 Volumes (Complete)
Manga Details Page: Here
Translations: None
Scanlations: None

Nijou Hanabi (girl) and Natori Idzumi (boy) are headed for their first day of middle school. Hanabi and Idzumi have spent most of their lives together; their parents were neighbors and close friends, they've learned kendo together, they've always been in the same classes at school and were even seated near one another. When their homeroom teacher tells them that middle school will be different from elementary school, Hanabi can't really see it at first. She's seated next to Idzumi, as always, and they are still as close as ever. The two of them begin to meet new friends and acquaintances, and they, along with their new friend Homare, join the kendo club. However, Homare and Hanabi are the first and only females in the club, so they get a bit more attention than they would have expected. From their first club meeting, Hanabi's life begins to be more complicated, as barely understood jealousies begin creeping into her relationship with Idzumi. It seems that becoming a teenager is going to be very different than being a child!

He claims to have also lost someone to the mysterious murderer, and he has information that Kei does not. Apparently, someone has created a program that can affect humans through the image of a blue butterfly on a computer screen, and that someone is using the program to murder 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)

This is what tethysdust said this week:
Metamorcode looked like it could shape up to be a pretty interesting story. It would be quite terrifying if there really were an image that could kill someone just by them seeing it on a computer screen. I also liked Aoharu, which looks like it will be a very cute story of children growing into teenagers in their middle school years.

My opinion:
Metamorcode sounds the most interesting this week~ I'm curious to see how the program makes people get murdered...

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

Metamorcode looked promising.
Was nice and bloody :)
The author did Who killed Cock Robin before, which was a good read too.
