Tips for Buying EarthBound

March 5th, 2010 | EarthBound, Manga

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.


MOTHER 2 Manga (44 MB)

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 😀

OOOHHHH! A collaborative translation project would be stellar! (I’ve always wanted to use that word)

If anyone can translate the text, I will replace any and all text on any given page(s). So if you want to join efforts, email me rubberfroggy@gmail.com

Cool, I’d do it but my japanese sucks :3

Haha, has some pretty funny stuff going on in there. The raising of the question, Who built the Saturn houses if the Saturns don’t have arms?, was quite genius.

On the cover doesn’t it look like Tessie is gonna eat Mr Saturn or is it just me?

neonix said on Mar. 5, 2010

Mr. Saturn used PK MAKE-STUFF-MOVE-NOW-KAY-O!

Psi-Rockin said on Mar. 5, 2010

Ness looks like a big jerk on the cover

MoonSide said on Mar. 5, 2010

It looks like everyone is running from Tessie and It is the only really kind looking creature in the cover (Mr. Saturn and Bubble Monkey don’t count).

On another note, I think Ness thinks he is a witch. Hes trying to ride his baseball bat like a broom.

Why do they look naked in some of the pictures?

I’ve tried translating manga before even though I not so good with Japanese. Took a loooong time but I managed to translate nearly…. one page… . ___.

Maybe it’s just me, but Ness looks like he’s flying with his baseball bat acting like a broomstick on the cover.

p. 20 second panel from the bottom right…

…I can never look at Mr. Saturn the same way again…

neonix said on Mar. 6, 2010

Hey Tomato, I have a mint condition copy of the official Mother 2 Manga by Benimaru Itoh and I would be happy to take full quality scans if you’re interested, I can do anywhere from 150 to 1200 dpi. Just offering.

Mato said on Mar. 6, 2010

I have the same manga, but don’t have the time to make scans of them all. If you’d be willing to scan them, that’d be awesome.

DoseiSan said on Mar. 6, 2010

Sweet, I’m Onett.

KingDarian said on Mar. 6, 2010

I was scratching me head at that until I realized you meant that as a pun of “on it”.

Ginrei said on Mar. 7, 2010

@KingDarian

That’s a Magic Butterfly, not a Mr. Saturn. You sure it’s page 20 you’re talkin’ ’bout?

KingDarian said on Mar. 7, 2010

Pg 20 – where Ness is dancing around naked in Magicant. I’m going by the actual page numbers in the book(as seen in the lower right corner), not file numbers.

shibaru said on Mar. 7, 2010

Me on page 20: Mr. Staurn,what are you doing there?

Mr. Nosy said on Mar. 7, 2010

If only I was more diligent in my Nipponese studies…
…wait…

DoseiSan said on Mar. 9, 2010

Hey, sorry it’s taking so long, I have Influenza, H1N1 and Pneumonia at the same time right now. I’ll do it on the weekend if I don’t feel better before then.

S0ulman said on Apr. 17, 2010

alworkshop said on Aug. 28, 2010
