So I recently finished reading "Giant Robo: The Day the Earth Burned" that are available in English. Sadly there's only 12 chapters translated, and by the looks of things whoever was translating it is dead/no longer doing it. Since it hasn't had an update since 2010.
Too bad no one is translating this manga its pretty good, there's 9 Volumes total and a sequel manga called "Giant Robo: Babel no Roujou"
I looked around for awhile to see if i could find raws of the later chapters but I had no such luck.
Interestingly enough its written by Yasuhiro Imagawa the guy who did the 1996-98 OVA of Giant Robo.
I find the art style interesting, don't know why but it really reminds me of Jojo's Bizarre Adventure.
I think a couple of actual Japanese readers have bought this and said it was kind of disappointing, but I still want to read them fully anyway... along with GR: Giant Robo TV series.
I got some chapters of the raws of Siege of Babel if you want them (but not the whole thing).
The annoying thing is - from a quick skim, it looks like SoB ends on a cliffhanger ALSO, which is really annoying.
Ah well, guess Giant Robo fandom is too dead for anything to happen
>I kinda doubt that, since there's some changes in characterization.
Manga updates lists him as the author.
Although it could just be an 'original creator' (since this is based on the OVA) credit like Go Nagai gets on things he's never had a part in.
thanks for the download links.
and yeah I was reading the reviews on this in japan amazon and on the web, apparently it has a sucky end. But it did end recently so there could be a sequel or something but I'd rather have OVA sequel then a Manga
>I kinda doubt that
you doubt its written by Yasuhiro Imagawa?
Hi I'm the guy who was responsible for those translations years ago. Are there raws available for all that's out in Japan? It's something I might get back to in the future. Back in the day they were all on /rs/...
Man, they didn't even translate the anniversary anime.
>Back in the day they were all on /rs/
>tfw you thought you save everything you like in /rs/, to then realize you didn't
fuck you megapocalypse
and fuck you moot
;_;for killing /rs/, you should just have cleaned the megaupload and other dead links and started again now he's not even here anymore to insult
Since this is a Giant Robo thread, is the GR-2 toy any good?
