    Manga Tips?

    Hey there! Long time fan of the anime here and I'm wanting to collect the manga sets(among other things like art books and such) so I was wondering if there are any tips to where to start looking and what to be on the lookout for?"

    Also, I did see Mantis post about the English translation, so I was wondering about the progress on that as well. Thanks!

    Well, I'd say the manga is one of the few Outlaw Star merchandise that you'll actually find great deals for on eBay. You might find it easier to search the respective country sites.

    For instance, the original Japanese manga set should be easy enough to find on eBay if you use the worldwide option, maybe adding "Japan" to your search. The three European manga versions are German, Italian and Spanish. They can often be quickly found on their own eBay sites.

    By that I mean the eBay domain. You of course use .com, and they use: .de, .it and .es

    Browsing the German eBay I instantly found this (translated the page):

    As you can see, they ship worldwide. Scroll down and you'll see an item number:

    Copy that number and search for it on your own eBay site.

    Hey presto. As for the Chinese manga. If you find it, let me know. It's been a nightmare to find one! I was lucky to get the set, and even luckier to get a spare volume one on my own.

    We've been working on the English manga for some time now. While we've posted a lot of updates in a private group I'll start releasing it publicly in different threads for each chapter. This will be in the Cyberspace forum. Since SFX can be very time-consuming it won't be super-quick. I'm doing what I can. The first thread will have around 60 pages. Here's a few previews.

    Gene: "That's okay. There's a first time for everything!"

    To answer the question a little more concisely, we have completed translations and drafts for 2.5 of the 3 and a half volumes that exist. Those stay behind closed doors for the moment, although a private group does have access. Being that they are drafts, Mantis is unhappy with the quality of the scans & a few of the translated lines so he is currently in the process of Remastering the manga translation drafts from the beginning into a final version which will be released publicly in chunks as it is completed.

    I second that.

    I found Volume 1 translated online but only a chapter or two from Volume 2. I want to read them now, but I also want to hold out in the hopes to read them all at once. 2.5 done out of 3.5 total, that’s exciting to hear.

    You've got plenty to look forward to then. It's at second place in my list of "most important doujinshi/art books to translate", so it's certainly got a lot of cool artwork and juicy info inside. (Of course, the latter is Japanese. Not to worry, we'll be onto that.)
