Sengoku Ittouki (センゴク一統記)

Demographics: Seinen
Status: 4 Volumes (Ongoing)
Manga Details Page: Here
Translations: None
Scanlations: None

This historical manga takes place in the Tensho period, near the end of Japan's long Warring States Period, at the point where the gradual unification of the country was in progress. The story features an interesting character in history, Sengoku "Gonbei" Hidehisa. Hidehisa began as a low ranking samurai, but he grew into prominence. He made a number of disastrous mistakes in his life, but he somehow managed to not only survive them, but to also regain his status. This manga reveals the mystery of Hidehisa's intriguing life, as the Warring States Period draws towards its close!

Note: This appears to be part of a series of manga about Hidehisa's life. The first is "Sengoku" (which begins in 1567), the second is "Sengoku Tensho-ki", and this series presumably carries on where the second left off. There is also a series that seems to be a prequel: Sengoku Gaiden: Okehazama Senki.

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:
For Sengoku Ittouki, I put in some information about related series. I have not read these related series, but this is what I picked up about their connections on the internet. If anyone reading this has corrections on how the series relate to one another, I would be happy to update the information. Hoshikawa seemed like it could be a cute story, and Fantasma had lots of action.
Here's what DrCoke had to say:
No comments this week.

My opinion:
The mangaka who made Sundome and Ibitsu also made Ittsu so we'll see how different this romance manga will be...

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
Eru13 - Ballroom e Youkoso: 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 comedy Dr. Duo (MH link).
