Manga Translation: Ape Escape Monkey Battle

23 May

Okay, so it’s only one page of the totally bananas (see what I did there?) manga Sarugetchu: Ukiuki Daisakusen (based on the Ape Escape videogames), but it’s my first shot at a translation.

I personally love this CoroCoro series despite its terrible juvenile humour, although it ended October last year. It was pretty much a collection of themed 4-panel collections and ran for 12 years.


3 New Pokemon Forms

12 May

Tornadus, Landorus and Thunderus have all been given new forms in the upcoming Pokemon games Black and White 2. Are they Fusion Pokemon? Who did they fuse with? Here they are on the cover of CoroCoro. (Sadly I don’t get CoroCoro for a few weeks yet, but I’ll post then.) Click the cover for info at Pokebeach.


Pokemon Black 2 White 2 Stuff

25 Apr

I thought I’d just point out a few things about the new Pokemon games that have been released in CoroCoro and on the new website.┬áMy Japanese isn’t that great, so there could be some mistakes.

B2W2 take place 2 years after the original. Part of the region has been covered with ice. Note that Black Kyurem and White Kyurem are both Dragon/Ice types. Mysterious!

Pokemon from previous games are now present in Unova, including 1st gen, 2nd gen, 3rd gen and 4th gen Pokemon on top of the current ones. Unova appears to have changed quite a lot- you start out in a new city, Hiougi City, in the south-west portion of the map.

There is also a theater-like building that appears to have some weird Mecha Pokemon movies in it. Are they interactive? Anyway, I’ll try to update this soon, and if you see anything, alert me!
