    RE: Where to find/buy/dl the manga?

    Here's one of them, called "El Dorado Covered with Clouds", and I found the e-mail I sent with the response. Some sellers would combine shipping, some won't. My e-mail...

    Hello,
    I will repay the shipping charge of two items.
    Thank you.

    The problem: I'm not quite sure which one the seller is on the page, or if that seller is still selling the books. http://www.amazon.co.jp/gp/product/4086300052/sr=8-1/qid=1295569476/ref=olp_product_details?ie=UTF8&me=&qid=1295569476&sr=8-1&seller=

    As for the other books, let me have a look around. And as for the drama CD and singles, I have no idea. O_o

    What an Outlaw Star search produces: http://www.amazon.co.jp/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?__mk_ja_JP=%83J%83%5E%83J%83i&url=search-alias%3Dstripbooks&field-keywords=outlaw+star&x=0&y=0

    Take note of the remastered boxset cost. XD

    RE: Where to find/buy/dl the manga?

    I got good news and bad news for everybody:

    Good news: I have the first two Manga novels of Outlaw Star in Japanese and I just recently purchased the 3rd star: Minority Report, from Amazon.co.jp. So hopefully I will be able to shed some light of the Manga to all of you.

    Bad news: I unfortunately can not read Japanese and I don't have a scanner so I can't scan the pages for everyone yet. Plus, would it be legal if I did post the pictures here? I'm just worried about that sort of stuff and don't want to break any laws.

    Back to good news: I DO have a camera and it may not be ideal but I could take pictures of the pages and place them here if given permission (also if that is not illegal). OR, if anybody actually knew how to read Japanese and translate, I could possibly send the pictures over to that individual to get it translated. I also remember knowing someone who was going to be an English teacher in Japan and was learning to read/write/speak Japanese, so if I can possibly get a hold of her and get her to translate them, we may have a chance to be able to read the three books!

    But, I can't promise anything; as I said before, I am worried about legal issues with doing that. Also, the pictures would probably not look like the scans of the first book was since I don't have a scanner.

    RE: Where to find/buy/dl the manga?

    Hello, Mr. Starwind. It's good to see you here. It's a shame you're lacking a scanner. I'm thinking of soon buying the manga myself (when I can afford it, as I lack a Fred Luo to borrow crazy amounts of cash from!), and also the novels mentioned in an above post. However, in the meantime, whatever you can provide would be helpful. I understand what you're saying about legality. I'll have a nosey around the usual places to see if I can find a full Japanese scan, though some early parts of the manga can be found translated into English online. You can private message me if you like, and we can arrange for you to send me any scans/pictures.

    If I ever do host the manga on here, it will be in a torrent format which should be fine, but to be perfectly honest I doubt they'll mind anyway. After all, sadly, the odds of the manga being translated into English officially are slim. I know a Japanese lady who used to be my Japanese teacher, but this is going back to 2005 and it was a beginner's Japanese class. I've forgotten nearly everything about the language. I'd ask her for assistance, but to be honest she seems like a busy woman so I wouldn't want to bug her. I've been looking into Japanese OCR software which would allow me to scan in the Japanese characters, then run it through Google Translate for instance for a rough translation which I could refine.

    I suppose if I provided a rough translation at some point, that could be passed onto someone who does know Japanese with the original Japanese scans to make the job easier for them? I'm also a bit lost as to whether you're referring to the manga or the novels, since they're two different things. (And to be honest, I'm not sure whether Minority Report is a manga volume or a novel.) Translating the novels would be a mammoth task, so I think our first focus if we're to take this on is translating the manga. With regard to hosting Outlaw Star media online, by the way, whilst I obviously won't host any episodes on here (I try not to associate the site itself with my YouTube channel), I will host the soundtrack directly on the site. This is because the soundtrack is out of print and every copy that's being sold now is a bootleg. Thus, there would be no loss of profitability caused.

    RE: Where to find/buy/dl the manga?

    Good to see and talk to the man behind this site! Thanks for bringing it up, this anime means much more to me than most think.

    Oh and it's the Manga I am talking about. Outlaw Star: 3rd Star: Minority Report AKA Volume 3

    Yeah, I wish I had a scanner, I'm looking into one so maybe I can get some pages up for everybody. But for now, pictures will do. I will private message you a few of the first pages of the 2nd Manga seeing as how we all can trace the 1st book in English so giving you those would seem to be a waste. And I will definitely try to get a hold of that one person I mentioned earlier, hopefully she wants a challenge and some practice before she goes down the education path.

    And in terms of legal issues, that's good to know that the music will be up here, I was ALWAYS trying to find that one CD of Outlaw Star that has everybody on the car and in summer clothes. At least, the physical copy of it. I have the one CD which has Gene and Melfina on the front cover but that's it. I also physically have the art book I also got a long while back so if you ever need any of those by any chance, feel free to ask and I will do my best to send you some pictures of that as well!

    Who knows, maybe if we get enough followers here, maybe something good will turn out in terms of gaining a sequel to the series, too many things were left open at the end and it's a damn shame it ended there.

    Anywho, off to take pictures of it!

    EDIT


    Okay, good news! Here are some of the pictures I took of some of the first pages of the 2nd Star Manga of Outlaw Star: Grappler Ship.

    I don't believe these pictures are in order so forgive me if I juggled them around and also sorry about not having a scanner, but this is proof that I do have the Manga and do plan on getting more of the pictures on here when I do have a scanner.


    Update: 4-4-2011

    Guess what I got in the mail today?

    Where to find/buy/dl the manga?

    So that means.....

    Where to find/buy/dl the manga?

    Hopefully we can finally translate the Mangas and finally be able to read it in english!

    RE: Where to find/buy/dl the manga?

    One day we will...one glorious day.
    Currently I am studying Japanese at University,
    maybe I will be able to translate in the foreseeable future.

    Hope springs eternal.

    RE: Where to find/buy/dl the manga?

    I would have replied earlier, but I wasn't aware of the post edits you had made. This is great. I'm actually very jealous since I've wanted these manga for a long time now, but I've been trying to scrape together the cash. I wasn't aware they had some colour pages. That's awesome. We'll definitely get them translated. Count on it.

    RE: Where to find/buy/dl the manga?

    Sweet. And sorry about the edits and you not knowing them, I just don't like to double post. I came back to that post like, 4 times editing and updating, Hahaha.

    And definitely if you guys can translate them that would be awesome! The only thing that made me disappointed is it seems that there was a halt on the story. I'm not exactly sure because I can't read the Manga but just like the Anime, it ended where it was leaving us with wanting more. Like the first three books to me are like a rendition of the first four episodes. Like it was supposed to be a 10+ Manga book series. Oh well, hopefully I am wrong and it has everything in there when we are able to read it.

    RE: Where to find/buy/dl the manga?

    No problem. Being an admin I can sure as hell understand and agree with that. XD I could do with adding a "bump" plugin for this kind of thing. It would probably be easier to find someone to translate the German or Italian versions, but since that would involve two translations (since it had already been translated from Japanese), some of the meaning might be lost in translation.
