This manga contains short stores of the author's own paranormal experiences dealing with ghosts, apparitions, and other encounters of fantastic nature. In this volume, she covers a few of her more recent experiences during her travels across Japan, whether for leisure or for business.

His sister finds Shigeru to be immature and almost comical, while his father seems to be oblivious of any tension created by the introduction of the new family member. Shigeru will have to use all of his willpower to withstand the seductive situations Kaoru puts him through.

Tokime Densetsu Kura Daruma (斎女伝説クラダルマ)
By: SHIBATA Masahiro

Demographics: Seinen
Status: 18 Volumes (Complete)
Manga Details Page: Here
Translations: None
Scanlations: None

At the airport on Christmas Eve, Kuji Shousuke was rushing to get a picture of the pop star Cynthia for the media company he works for, when something happened that would change his life forever. He stumbled, tackling the pop star and kissing her. Everyone was outraged, but she gave him a kiss back as a "Christmas present."

However, her return kiss might not be as innocent as it first seemed. Shousuke has suddenly started seeing all the women around him, even images in posters, as naked. What's worse, there are periods where he loses his mind and attacks them lasciviously. Those who know him know he claims to be allergic to women, so this behavior is completely out of character for him. When Shousuke encounters a young woman named Kuma, who appears to have some supernatural powers, she realizes that something has been done to awaken these primal reactions in him. Shousuke gives her a temporary place to stay as she and her friends try to help him figure out what has been done to him and what to do about it.

Thanks go to tethysdust for the summary.

In an old tunnel on the route to a school, there is a rumor that each summer a ghost appears. That ghost is Hanako, an eternal 24-year-old woman in a sleeveless shirt and a miniskirt! This 4koma follows the many people who encounter Hanako-san, a friendly ghost with a strong personality!

Thanks go to tethysdust for the summary.

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:
Nothing really caught my eye. Tokime Densetsu Kura Daruma could potentially have an interesting story, thought it has quite a lot of nudity and violence, but I wasn't really a fan of the art style. Tenpai could be interesting for people who are really into mahjong.

Here's what DrCoke had to say:
Mierundesu is very adorable with a hint of horror mixed in. Don't be fooled by the front cover image: the author is well capable of drawing grotesque images of ghosts. I would recommend this manga if you want to read short horror stories depicting the cute author being terrified constantly.

As for Tachibana... that one did not keep my attention for long.

My opinion:
None of the manga really seems to interest me... ^^;;

Translated items that need some love/scanlation:
myao - Circle Game: Chapter 1
persona_1 - Mahou Shoujo Pretty Bell: Chapter 1
Bomber D Rufi - Nejimaki Kagyu: Chapter 1-5

If you haven't done so already, check out the scanlations of the mangas from previous shout outs which have been recently scanlated: historical fantasy Radiata Stories - The Song of Ridley (MH link).
