Harutoshi Fukui Turn A Gundam Novels – Part 1 Chapter 1:
Cocoon on the Moon, Fruit on the Earth

Finally, our first major release following the prologue from several months back (sorry for the delay!). Part 1 chapter 1 translation.

Chapter 1 follows the events leading up to about halfway through the first episode of the TV anime but with lots of extra detail.

To recap a bit: this is the infamous Turn A Gundam novelization by Harutoshi Fukui — yes, the same Fukui behind Gundam Unicorn. It’s always been one of my ambitions to see these novels translated, and I’m finally realizing that dream. We’re making it happen.

There are two books in this novelization, each around 400 pages in length. We’ve broken it up into nine major “parts”, with several “chapters” within each chapter.

Book 1: parts 1-4

Book 2: parts 4-9

This will be a long and slow process, but it’s one we intend to see through. Just as we did with Wind of the Moon!

Turn A Gundam Novelization by Harutoshi Fukui – Prologue!

Harutoshi Fukui Turn A Gundam Novels:
Cocoon on the Moon, Fruit on the Earth

Here it is. Our new project! The Turn A Gundam novels by Harutoshi Fukui! Some of you may be familiar with Fukui as the author to the Gundam Unicorn novels, which have since been animated. These Turn A Gundam novels have had a bit of a notorious reputation in the community for years, and it has been a dream of mine to see them translated. So, we’re making it happen.

They’re known to expand on and explore the source material (the TV anime) in great detail and add a lot of controversial changes to the story. My understanding is they touch on topics like the true nature of the Turn A Gundam‘s nanomachinery and regeneration powers, the Moonlight Butterfly’s potential, the role of Newtypes, etc., and apparently Dianna and Kihel play a bit of a more hands-on role in the story and together pilot a mobile armor. Exciting stuff. This summary of info from the various Turn A novelizations gives us an idea of the things to expect.

There are two novels in Fukui’s novelization — each around 400 pages in length, and we’ve chosen to use the books that feature occasional artwork by character designer Yasuda Akira. This project is going to be a long haul, but we’re committed!

Turn A Gundam: Wind of the Moon FINAL CHAPTER & commentaries/afterword

180

And here we are! The final chapter of Wind of the Moon. Included also are commentaries by Harutoshi Fukui and Ryuusuke Hikawa, and an afterword by akiman himself.

If you ask me, WotM‘s a total mess, but it introduces a lot of interesting ideas to the Turn A Gundam universe: intergalactic transfer portals, hyperadvanced human civilizations, Newtype evolution, etc., and there’s some nice backstory on the Moonrace as a people. It’s beautifully drawn too. I enjoyed it.

I’d like to thank everyone involved in this project: khoda, nanopocalypse, nozaku, and myself. It means a lot to me. For years this manga has been seen as an enigma and something fans had given up hope on, so I’m glad to have led the effort to translate it.

So what’s next? Who knows. I have a few potential projects lined up. We shall see!

Thank you for reading!
