    Where to find/buy/dl the manga?

    Hey folks! Newbie to the forums here, but long time OS fan. Regarding the manga, I have ever only found the first three or four chapters of the very first volume online to read on some manga reading websites, yet I want more. So my general question is, and if anybody has an answer, that would be great:
    Is there a place to purchase an English version of the manga, whether online or physically? Or is there a site online that features the manga in a readable/downloadable format such as mangafox or onemanga?

    Anyone who's seen even part of the manga would also be appreciative of such information. I don't know about you all, but, *I* love the artwork and style of the manga, especially compared to the newer mangas of today.

    much love,
    Pewilly

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

    Hello, and welcome to Outlaw Star UK.

    Unfortunately, I can't help you since you've done just as much homework (if not more) as myself. After a lengthy search I did come across the first few chapters of volume one online, too. An official translation never happened, so you won't find a physical copy either. It's a shame, and yes, the art style is quite nice. Your only hope is waiting until an amateur translator comes along and does the job, or (something I might do one day, but probably only if others pitch in) pay an amateur to do it. Some might even do it for free if we create a petition. I don't know.

    What baffles me is that (as far as I recall) Italy and Germany got official translations, yet English-speaking countries—collectively a much bigger market—did not. Heck, it would probably be a lot easier to get a German/Italian speaker to translate one of those versions, but then a lot of meaning would probably be further lost in translation. O_o

    Then there's the novels. What I'd do to have a translation of those. I'm going to buy them soon from Amazon Japan.

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

    Hey guys,

    I'm also extremely interested in getting this anime translated, it boggles me how they did 4 chapters then gave up! I'm really interested in seeing how different the storyline is in comparison to the anime. The anime has been the love of my life since I was about 14 heh!

    Could we take this petition idea furthur? Or perhaps request it to a translaters community (in serious force!)? I'd really like to take this furthur and get the idea of an English Outlaw Star manga out there!

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

    I've had a hard enough time getting the word out about this site (admittedly I could have done more), so I'm not sure how I could let a great number of fans know about a petition. A few anime/manga forums might be a good start. Heck, I could kill two birds with one stone. (Without spamming, of course!)

    I'm going to wait until February and then I'll try and gather some interest in a translation.

    If RAWs exist, then someone should scanlate it. Found one group that did the first 4 chapters, but they stopped scanlating apparently D:

    As soon as I can scrape more cash together, I'm going to buy the manga and get some good quality scans online, so hopefully we can work hard to find someone who is willing to translate.

    I was able to get the three manga volumes off Ebay, Japanese of course.
    I didn't even know that there were novels. Were they fan works?

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

    Nope, real novels. I was going to buy them off Amazon JP. A seller told me he'd give me shipping discounts if I bought them all. In the end though, I figured I needed the money. I'll get them soon enough. Even though I won't be able to read them, I'm enough of a fan to just get them anyway. I want them almost as much as the singles and the drama CD.
