Shin Getter Robo: First Contact Act I and New Projects

First up, here's chapter 4 from Shin Getter Robo (Saga ver).
Getter Robo Saga - Shin Getter Robo Chapter 4

Sorry, still no Getter Robo G release. Apparently, Damage shall restart his translation efforts sometime next month. I apologize for the wait. Great Mazinger shall be released when the entire volume is completed, as per the translator's instructions.

Also, I'm looking for Japanese to English translators. I want to release more Dynamic Pro manga and speed up the translations of current projects. Working for free is a plus, but I'm also quite willing to pay.

Get in contact with me if you are willing to translate or know someone who might be. I have many potential projects, ranging from very short to long. So if you're worried about devoting time, talk to me and we should be able to reach an arrangement that best works for you and your schedule.

Moving on to other news...

I'm happy to announce two new projects.

First is Gekiman, which shall be done as a joint with Project Bite Me! Scanlations. They will be providing the scans and translation, while I typeset. So really, I'm just along for the ride. If you haven't done it already, go check out their work. They're translating Violence Jack and Enma-kun, among other great manga.

The other project is Getter Robo Bible. First, I just want to say that this will be an untranslated release. I bought the book a while back for personal enjoyment, and I've decided to scan it and release it as is due to fan demand. It's a very text heavy book, but there are tons of great pictures and concept sketches. If we're lucky, maybe it'll pique the interest of a translator (if so, contact me and I'll typeset). Probably not. But anyway, look forward to that!

Here's some sample scans from Getter Robo Bible:


  1. Nice, it is sizing up to be an exciting Summer for releases. I wish I could translate, I would do that crap for free in a heartbeat. Instead I'm just another faceless internet consumer. Pity. Either way, looking forward to the future!

  2. Googled Gekimanm looks great!

    I know that you're having a hard time (or at least i guess), but have you ever considered doing some of Buichi Terasawa's works (the creator of Space Adventure Cobra)?

  3. Yeah, I love Terasawa's works.

    I've actually thought about doing Space Adventure Cobra in the past, but finding translators is hard. I would like to try my hand at it in the future, though.

    As far as having a hard time...
    It's really not going that bad. The only problem is that I'm waiting on the translator for Getter Robo G. Which, of course, is a big problem. But every other project (Great Mazinger, Shin Getter, Getter Bible, Gekiman) is going as expected.

  4. Ow that's GREAT! Never mind... I used to dislike Go Nagai's art, but know i realise what a genius he is... Guy has such a long list with mangas... Though his mangas aren't that long...

    So "Getter Team" :D, what's your favourite of his mangas, what's your favourite of his robot mangas and why? What's your favourite anime adaptation?

    Is there are connection between him and Ken Ishikawa was his name i think?

  5. My favorite Go Nagai manga is Devilman. From his robot manga, I guess I'd say I like either Z Mazinger or Mazinsaga the best. Favorite anime adaptation? Probably the Devilman OVAs (Birth and Demon Bird).

    >Is there are connection between him and Ken Ishikawa

    Yeah. Ken Ishikawa is the author/artist of Getter Robo, and collaborated with Nagai and Ohta on many different works ranging from Mazinger to Battle Hawk. Apparently, they were good friends.

    Go Nagai, Ken Ishikawa and Gosaku Ohta are the three major manga artists from Dynamic Production (Go Nagai's company).

  6. Chapter 3 (of 5), of Great Mazinger volume 1 is now with the checker, and I'm hacking away at chapter 4.

  7. Just here to report we just got our Gekiman raws and have scans for chapters 1 and 2, expect those cleans so you can start typesetting soon, Bro.

  8. I bought Gekiman ( 4 volumes) because I read the first chapt on your site. I think it's one of the greatets work of Go Nagai, but I think it's hard to translate.. do you think you'll find some other collaborations to go on with the project? Tha manga deserves to be read!

  9. Project Bite me! was handling scanning and translation, so they would be the best ones to ask about the continuation of that project.

  10. I read comments on Project Bite me! and they seem not interested at all.. it's a pity!
    Thanks for your kind answer, I'll keep following you!
