Space Pirate Captain Harlock – Great News!!

‘I’m trying to put this as delicately as I can… How do I know you won’t kill me in my sleep?’
‘You don’t know me, son, so let me explain this to you once: If I ever kill you, you’ll be awake. You’ll be facing me, and you’ll be armed.’


No, we are not doing Captain Harlock series. Somebody else is.

The group is Offtopia and they released a WHOLE VOLUME of Space Pirate Captain Harlock. Moreover, the guys work with a 3-volume edition, so it’s one third of Captain Harlock manga in English!! With all authority of a newly-made editor I say the scans and the editing quality are superb. AK says something along the same lines about the translation.

Only it seems that nobody around knows about this release – which is a shame – so I guess this promotion won’t hurt anybody.

Now go to the Offtopia site and grab it!

    Greetings, I’ve done the cleaning for volume 2, and 3 is going to be scanned in hopefully soon. We plan to do quite a few other Leiji as well!

      I should also mention my friend Katatonia is doing the translations for a great deal of coming Leiji. If you guys are interesting, I doubt we’d mind jointing for hep with cleaning and typesetting.

      Thanks for GUn frontier!

    Indeed, he’s said! Our Leiji plans now…I’m helping Offtopia finish up Captain Harlock. Volume 2 is cleaned and translated, but I’m waiting for the typesetters to get through. Queen Emeraldus V1 as well. Offtopia’s so swamped it’s taking a while. In the future, we’ve also planned Battleship Yamato, Queen Millennia, Galaxy Express 999 and Nibelungen/Harlock Saga with other possible others like Shadow Warrior. Katatonia’s going to translate them all and I’m cleaning them, though more help with the typesetting/cleaning when we get to more would definitely help. I’m loving the Leiji thus far.
