His high school boasts a highly competitive kendo club, and Kensei is excited to join and begin learning from the older students. However, the fact that Kensei's father is a legendary kendo competitor works against him. Once the other club members learn that Kensei is not as good as his father, they refuse to let him join the team.
Wandering around in despair, Kensei comes across the secret hideout of Ashihara Naoto. She seems highly skilled in kendo, though she spends all her time reading and claims she hates the sport. Naoto reluctantly helps him train up to prove his worth to the kendo club, though she refuses to join the club herself.

6 Chapters (Ongoing)Manga Details Page: HereTranslations: Chapter 1 | Chapter 2 | Chapter 3Scanlations: None
There is a hidden island that is a mecca for martial artists. There are different reasons people go there--because they want to become amazing at their art, or simply because they come from a family known for martial arts and they are sent there by their parents. In any case, new arrivals sign a contract that they can't leave for 10 years, and that contract is strictly enforced. Within the complex, there is a forbidden area...
Ro is a new arrival, and he was hoping to hone his skills. However, it seems to him that he's gaining nothing, and is just being required to drag himself down to the level of his inferior peers. One day, he opens the door in the forbidden area, and finds a boy who had been trapped there for ten years. The boy remembers little of his life before, and Ro names him "Kid." Kid is determined to leave the complex and search for his father. Maybe if Kid can get help from Ro and other new friends he makes, such as a sad, bullied young girl named Mugi, he will be able to begin his search!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:
- The name of the manga series
- A summary of the series
- Publishing Status (+ Number of Volumes/Chapters)
This is what tethysdust said this week:
Gunjo Senki was neat (though extremely violent). It is a very different and more serious take on the usual "transported to Sengoku era" plot. Kokushi Musou also seems like it could grow into a pretty nice story.
