Turtler Generations Selects Manga #3 Translation.


Hopefully this is it for these guys for a while.  While there isn’t a lot of speech happening in this one, the editing of the effects and stuff was a bit of a pain, but I did learn some new editing techniques, so that was good.  While story wise these ones are weaker than the Legends comics, the drawing style is pretty cool!

I’ve included some notes after the jump, so please have a little look see if you think something is whacky.

Gens Selects Seacons Manga part 2, translated!


Part 2 of the Generations Selects Seacons Manga as taken from the TTmall page.  Nothing very exciting to say in this one, except for some editing challenges for my amateur skills
Read it left to right.  Enjoy.

Interestingly they included the whole thing in one PDF, despite having a page break area at the bottom of where the first page would have ended.   Is that interesting?

Select Turtler Comic Translation

How exactly does a masked mouthed guy smirk anyway?

Hey yo, here is a translation of the little two page comic that was from the TakaraTomy Mall webpage advertising Turtler and the fish guy(only bonus from getting the two pack is extra TTmall points).  I gotta admit the Seacons are looking mighty fine, but my question is:

Where has that Select Armada convoy gone?????
*Oh my, this is embarrassing, I've updated once again, as I mistakenly loaded up the Japanese version pf page 2 instead (facepalm), now it is complete.

Tets Goes to: Summer Wonderfest 2019

and completely changes his mind on something…

I’ve always wondered about Wonderfest and kind of wanted to go, but normally I find out about too late, or something that’s really not a good excuse to go comes up and I don’t go.  This year I decided to go and here’s the report.

Rattrap and the Junioration Gap 1,2. Legends comic Translation

Here we go with what was listed as #3 on the website, it’s Rattrap in young people’s gap (hence the Junioration Gap pun) in opposition to the Generation gap that he had with the older Rhinox in the last issue.  Essentially, Generation gap is when an older person doesn’t understand you.  Junioration Gap is when a younger person doesn’t understand you.  Easy.  Although technically, they are BOTH generation gaps…. eeh who cares, this is more fun.

In another respect, this issue is a clever counter to the previous one.  Before it was the conflict of old skool TF fans with Beast Wars fans, now its a conflict between one who considers themselves a “true fan” and one who just joined recently (specifically, Silverbolt and his comment about liking TFs a week ago because he saw the movie.) using Silverbolt as the metaphor for the conflict.

Now, onto the comic!  Again, this one reads straight down.

Tets goes to the Yokohama Doll Museum (to see Transformers!)

The Yokohama Doll Museum happens to have a Transformers exhibition on at the moment (25 May until 30 June 2019).  Since I hadn’t heard about this place before and a brief look at their website has images linking to a cafe with promising coffee options, I decided to go and have a look.

Legends TF Webcomic #2, Rattrap and the Generation Gap

This little one didn't take me too long and is kind of stupidly fun.  Please read it in columns, straight down as there are two stories for Rattrap's first day at work.  I used the Japanese names in this for Rattrap, as Rhinox ends up comparing the Japanese names to the English names and making fun of them.

Which I can understand... For Japanese people, Optimus Prime is 8 syllables while in English it's 4, as well as having many consonants together, which Japanese doesn't have.  The same issue goes for Decepticons and Autobots (although not to the same extent).

Please Enjoy Issue # 2
