Hey there. I'm back. I'll be scanning more Area 88 sometime soon, so here's a thread. This next batch is the last of the original Viz comic run, before it moved to Animerica for a couple of years.

Maybe I didn't lurk enough, but was the entire manga translated (official/fan)?

Original editor here; I've fixed the problem with my monitor's colors, but I've got uni shit from now until May that's going to eat all my time. If someone else wants to jump on these before then go ahead; I'll be back by then if nobody's here.

>>12463038
Because military technical jergon out of the ass, and according to what I've seen on various places, including /a/ looking up things that aren't "aaah" and "oooh" and "cum inside my nipples" seems to be hard.
>>
>>12463048
This for me. I'm an inexperienced translator who wouldn't want to end up fucking up the script worse than Viz did.

Making em super-duper-bw-contrast is bad on my tastes. I like a touch of grey and some texture sharpness in my old manga. Do you, gais, like it, shall I go on like that and contact the OP?

Also I wouldn't bother with cleaning the Viz chapters, IIRC even the OP said that it's best to just clean the tanks and put the Viz translation on those, while keeping psds or whatever while waiting for a translator to pop up and eventually just change the text.

Oh, excuse me, i's about translations. I see. But since there are no translators, then...
>>
>>12463848
>>12463862
I don't know, I don't really care, I thought the whole point of this project was:
1. providing high quality scans of the tankobon releases with the Viz translation on them (since the Viz releases are mirrored garbage and the already existing scans are of bad quality and also incomplete)
and, _IF_ possible
2. having someone that is good at moonspeak check the Viz translations for inaccuracies and such, and eventually fixing them, and then putting those on the tank scans.

The first part is totally feasible. It seems our boys are at a dead spot with the second one. Nobody seems to be willing to work on it for a reason or another.

It's too bad that people that aren't EOPs but still don't know japanese or any asian laguages don't have alternatives either.
>>
>>12463918
Thanks for the explanation. I will try to find somebody, it's not such a big deal to check, not to translate the whole thing.
>>
>>12463980
Thank you. It's kind of a shame that to my knowledge there are no french/italian/spanish translations, otherwise I could have at least tried to help the project in a meaningful way.

Why is this a picture rather than the usual full color drawn cover?

They switched to photographs for some reason.

Were the full color chapter covers specifically made for the Viz releases or something?

I guess they ran out of art for the individual comics

I wonder what jets Shin and Mick will be flying in the next chapter.
Will it be the captured F/A-18 they used to escape captivity ?

So I'm reading the first chapters, and the cleanup job is baaad. Not on the levels of the old "Hikaru" scans, but bad nonetheless.

Just keeping the thread alive.

I scanned some more Area 88, but I forgot to post it last night. I'll dump when I get home, and probably scan another issue.

How many chapters Area 88 still have?
>>
>>12493903
Translated ones? I don't recall the exact number, maybe 20-ish, assuming they didn't butcher it? IIRC OP posted about it in the past. Bakaupdates states it's 6 volumes.

In total? 171, according to the last chapters translated scripts.

My question is though, when does the Tigershark show up, and why was the Draken completely omitted from every adaption?

>when does the Tigershark show up

I'm not sure of the exact chapter, but it seems to be near the middle-end. I don't want to spoil anything further.
>>
I read the wiki page and trope page that at some point Shin flies an X-29. I wonder in which chapter he flies that and whether or not he is just testing it or it become his personal plane.
>>
>>12500103
I remember him flying that to Area88 when he comes back to base after long absence, towards the end of series.
That was his second last plane. He doesn't get shot down though, just runs out of fuel.

Oh man I miss these comics I had in Japan. Had all of them, but had to throw them away since the school didn't allow me
>>

Doesn't Shin die at the end?
>>
>>12505149
at least in the OVA version, yes, it is IMPLIED that Shin dies (or flying toward his possible death) at the end judging by the state of the Area 88 mercenaries being severely outnumbered. The outcome isn't shown. Hopefully in the manga, he survived the whole series
>>
>>12506229
I find the manga ending to be BARF.

>>12495763
I think this woman might be a new major character. The mask and custom helmet are a dead giveaway.

>>12507910
Isn't that Saki's cousin, who also shows up in the anime as a Mirage F1 pilot?
