Kotou no Boukensha (subhead is in English; Survival in the Solitary Island) is a manga series by Yoshihiro Takashashi, published in 1995-1996. The plot is basically the same as in other manga series by Takahashi, Otoko no Tabidachi: two boys try to stay alive and find their way back to civilization, after surviving from shipwreck in a storm.

Where Otoko no Tabidachi was six volumes long and had all kinds of oddities (like dinosaurs), Kotou no Boukensha is only three volumes long, and takes more realistic way. It even has very detailed info of how to build traps, make fire, build oven, build blowgun and it's ammo. I think these might even work in real life!

And, because it's Takahashi's manga, there has to be dogs in it! Byakuren no Fang -stylish this time.

I just got this series in the mail, so I was inspired to start a topic for it.

For some reason, none of the volumes have character introduction page. But going through pages, names can be found.

Big brother: Hiroshi
Younger brother: Masaru
Husky puppy: Blue

I am in the process of translating this. Chapter 1 is almost done, and I'll be posting it tomorrow as a teaser.

Also, this series should be called "MASARU IS A WHINY BRAT."

Read the first chapter and I'm hooked XD I really like the little survival tips and I'm a big Yoshi fan regardless. Thanks so much for starting this!
