Otomi loves fish people, and is eager to meet as many as she can! One day, she meets a new transfer student, a lantern fish girl named Tsutsumi Anko. Anko is a bit self-conscious about being a deep sea fish, with a tail that is not cute like some other fish girls. At school, she and Anko deal with various fish problems that intersect with issues an ordinary human high-schooler would face.Thanks go to tethysdust for the summary.

3 Volumes (Ongoing)Manga Details Page: HereTranslations: NoneScanlations: None
Utsugi Souya has lived life avoiding the spotlight. He always tries to follow the rules and be a good samaritan, especially when it came to environmental issues. He would go as far as being late to school if it meant protecting the Earth by separating the trash in the correct order.
One day while walking home from school, he finds that someone has messed with his trash. His trash has been left behind because the different types of trash were mixed up. The perpetrator kept mixing up only Souya's trash everyday, so one day Souya decides to lie and wait to catch this annoying criminal. That day, he finds that the perpetrator was actually the recently transferred classmate, Tokisaka Koyomi, and she reveals that she has come from the future to stop all environmentally friendly activity. Now, Souya and Tokisaka will have to live together and destroy the environment so that Tokisaka can go back to the future.Thanks go to DrCoke 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:

- A summary of the series
- Publishing Status (+ Number of Volumes/Chapters)
This is what tethysdust said this week:
Shinkaigyo no Anko-san is a really bizarre idea, but that kind of makes it stand out. It seems more or less like a usual school story, but with the added twists of fish behavioral problems and physical quirks (like the eel girl who was afraid she would secrete mucus when agitated by confessing to the boy she liked).
Issho ni Kurasu Tame no Yakusoku o Itsuka would probably be interesting to people who are into that genre of story. Also, I put the adult tag on there due to some fairly explicit sex scenes between Gorou and adult women (*not* concerning Sana, at least not that I've seen).
Dirty Christ Superstar was a strange one, though not as blasphemous as it might sound. Unlike some of the usual sorts of stories about fathers meeting children they didn't know about, "Hades" seems to be a thoroughly unpleasant person. I'm guessing he will probably shape up throughout the future chapters, due to his daughter's influence.
Here's what DrCoke had to say:
"Tokisaka" is very funny. Who would have thought that being anti-environmentally conscious could make for a hilarious comedy?
My opinion: Dirty Christ Superstar
sounds like an interesting drama, although the name of the title may turn off some people... Ranshi no Kuni no Alice
also piqued my interest - to see how the fairy tale princesses will try and assassinate Alice... Tokisaka-san wa Boku to Chikyuu ni Kibishisugiru.
may also be funny to read in terms of how ridiculous the premise is since I don't see how destroying the environment (by not putting out the trash) may allow Koyomi to return back to the future. Also, what if changing the past somehow changed her future and not allow her to return (and other time parodoxes)...Translated items that need some love/scanlation:myao
