Unhappy G2 Manga: "The Earth is in Danger!"

http://www.tfarchive.com/comics/japanese/g2manga.php

36 pages. Most of them crap. But hey, this was the one manga people wanted me to translate the MOST, so here you go.

And to all Hooligan fans, I'm sorry.


Some notes:


*In regards to Junpei's dialogue, there was a method to my madness. I SWEAR. Every other word out of that f***er's mouth was "SUGEEEEIIIII!!!!" Basically, he couldn't go five seconds without saying "AWESOME!" or "COOL!" So, instead of saying those two words over and over and over again, I decided to have a little fun with him.

*Despite what I had always thought, this manga DOES NOT take place within the Japanese G2 continuity featured in the story pages and minicomics and Hidetsugu Yoshioka (which are an extension of the cartoon timeline). This manga takes place in the year 1990-something, where as the G2 story pages took place in the distant future (or our present, whatever).

*No. I don't know wtf the "Forest Night" was. They didn't say. It's just some kind of "super energy source" with no further elaboration. It's possible it could be romanized as "Forest Knight", but I dunno. I just chose one and stuck with it.


So there you go. Try to enjoy.

Well, unless you count Inflatable Dalek wanting me to translate the story where the Decepticons hunt and kill a dog. But nobody counts Inflatable Dalek.


Also, apprently I TOTALLY ruined the story and my translations are unreadably inaccurate because I called the characters and factiosn by their English names:

I'd like to introduce that man's noggin to a sledgehammer.

Seriously.

EDIT: I just read it, and regardless of what you may think of my mental age, all I can say is...nothing can overcome the hilarity of the fact that we just saw Electro impale Jolt on his shaft.

(I know it's "Shaft Saber", but still...)

Other notables silliness are that damn kid's facial expression in the upper right corner of page 17 (Well okay, every single one of his facial expressions in the entire comic), but fortunately Electro does the right thing by smacking him on the nads on page 18, although it doesn't help a bit...

Despite the UK issue #86 being similar in that it was basically just all about two giant robots fighting, at least the dialogue didn't make me want to a lot.

I was this close to having Junpei say "mondo tubuloso" but my judgement got the better of me so I changed it to "Boss" or something like that.

Be grateful.

Note: when you used some alternative, I still pictured him saying 'Awesome' or 'Cool'.

So yes, I agree, this comic sucks...balls...through a garden hose.

You need to translate the final issue of the Victory manga. Ever since I heard about those civilian decepticons, I've wanted to see it!

If you'd have listened to me we'd all have joined in singing dog death praises and no one would have cared about the names.

I've skimmed the start... Is the whole thread just ten pages of you and that guy going "Japanese names!" "What's wrong with using the English names?" "Japanese names!!!!" over and over?

Pretty much. Though I give up after a point and then a dozen people jump in and start telling the dude he's an idiot.


And I'm putting off the dead dog issue because there's a section where the dog speaks and all his words are written in katakana which makes it really tough to read.

I'm lazy.

So where's the obligatory manga where decepticons break children's toys, give the finger to homeless kittens and tackle grannies on zimmer frames just like every not-self-respecting eeeeeeeeeeevil villain should do?

HOOHAW!

This one's the Japanese G2 story that was actually GOOD (albeit, not presented in a very flattering medium).

Man, I love Hidetsugu Yoshioka's G2 artwork. That guy draws Yaniger's style better than...Yaniger.
