New Project: The Atsushi Souga Turn A Gundam Manga Adaptation

Big news! Today I’m announcing our intent to scanlate the entirety of the Atsushi Souga manga adaptation of Turn A Gundam! It is a manga written and illustrated by Atsushi Souga and loosely(?) follows the events of the TV series. Think of it as a standard by-the-books adaptation with its own flair.

Feez – Organization & Typesetting
Peytral – Translation
Nozaku – TL Checking
Poe – Editing

Our translator is a budding talent looking to gain experience and make a name for himself. So far he’s doing great! Give him a warm welcome.

We’ve already completed the first chapter! See download links below.

Site Introspection and Progress Update(s)

It’s been a while since my last post.

I’ve done a bit of thinking and I’d like to re-focus this blog towards being more than just a Turn A Gundam translation hub. So, as you might have noticed, I now have a domain! Any old links to posts should still work. I’ve also added the resource compilation as a site page up top.

It’s with sadness that I must announce that the translation to the Fukui novels is on indefinite hiatus (if it wasn’t already obvious…). Our translator, khoda, has had a lot of pressing real-life concerns that need attending. It’s a shame, but I cannot blame her and I thank her for her amazing work. I’d still like to see these novels translated, but I can’t promise anything right now.

But! I’ll have an exciting new translation project to announce soon, so please stay tuned. I also plan to further expand this blog to feature more personal posts, collection showcases, staff and TV anime info, opinion pieces, etc. I have a lot of knowledge, opinions, rare items, etc. to share. I’m crazy about Turn A Gundam!

This site will remain Turn A Gundam focused, of course, but I may branch out here and there on special occasions.

Thanks for reading!

Syd Mead Interview – Turn A Gundam DVDs

https://i.imgur.com/UBCBN9K.png

This is a transcription of an interview with mechanical designer Syd Mead by Robert Napton originally shot for Bandai Entertainment’s canceled release of Turn A Gundam, which was announced in 2010. This has often been referred to as the “lost” Syd Mead interview, until it finally resurfaced with Right Stuf’s North American release of the Turn A Gundam DVDs in June of 2015.

The transcription follows below and has been edited for readability.

Harutoshi Fukui Turn A Gundam Novels – Part 1 Chapter 1:

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!
