My unofficial English Copy!

Post by GrandxSummoner » Fri Dec 11, 2020 2:15 am

So basically this was something I did long ago well before manga planet licensed GNG, and I had permission from the translation team to use their work. I also purchased the full series new from Japan "even though I can't read it" in order to support Yoshi, I look at it like film copyright laws, where I can copy an indefinite amount of copies of a film as long as I own the original and only use it for my own personal use, as well as I have a subscription to manga planet for now and the future as I plan to support any and all forms of Yoshi's work in any English release. Anywho now that I've given my personal justification for it, here's my unofficial English copy of GNG next to my official Japanese GNG. I also did GDR but just didn't pull the two books out for photos. I rearranged the pages, split the double pages, added white borders, and flipped all images upside down and horizontally as Manga is read backwards to US standards. Then using a book creating software put it all together and then printed it off for myself. Unfortunately I can't quite get the covers figured out and have subsequently given up on getting them perfect. Lol so what does everyone think? Also really hoping to add an official English copy of all Ginga to my collection eventually. :EXCITE: https://ibb.co/fnFjcZt https://ibb.co/d7MfGVF https://ibb.co/9hHXds6 https://ibb.co/DCqQKsf https://ibb.co/5BH9vs9 https://ibb.co/bzdkrpj https://ibb.co/sqpXr0V

Ooh those are super cool!

And I agree I hope Manga Planet can give us physical copies someday! I know they mention the possibility of print on demand.
