Shigesato Itoi Loves Franklin
When I started EarthBound Central, I originally planned to translate some of the official manga page by page over a period of time. But I have so little free time these days that scanning, translating, and editing the scans takes way more time than I can afford. So translated manga has been heavily neglected.
So what I’ll do instead is offer a bunch of scans to the fans, and if anyone is skilled enough and has time enough to translate them into English, go right ahead. I’d like to have a section on the site that offers all the manga in fan-translated form, so maybe people can submit single pages and I’ll add them to the site one by one as they’re finished.
Anyway, here’s a manga I scanned a while back. It’s a four-panel manga with many different contributors. I also covered it briefly in a past update here.
If you look around this site, you’ll see I’ve already translated a few pages and a few individual things. I don’t have those page numbers handy though. Anyway, hopefully this will work out and equate to more fun stuff for English-speaking fans 😀
