Cyborg 009: Angels

A fitting title to bring out now...and a HUGE thanks to Felipe Onodera for translating and editing this for us. It's a real honor and a privilege and we are insanely grateful.

Here is the Angels arc for Shotaro Ishinomori's incredible series. One of the best he ever did and certainly the most famous, taking place after the main series and introducing a great plot that was finished later on!

Enjoy, everyone!

PS: Felipe, hope to talk to you again soon. Everything well otherwise?

  4. Yes, it's beautiful. Though I'm sorry to say that it was finished in a bad way, without respecting the author's original indications and intentions. I still wait for someone to write a PROPER ending worthy of the Sensei. ^^

    1. P.S. The homage by Shimamoto to this wonderful saga is instead not only worthy but magnificent.^^

  5. Greetings,
    I'm doing just fine, thanks.
    Anna has moved away and is in college now.

    Actually, this was edited by Liz of the Cyborg 009 Manga Project, I believe:

    Basically they're trying to translate the entire Cyborg 009 manga series and some story arcs are being translated by different people. This is probably the best way of work for something as big as Cyborg 009. Some later chapters have a Hard Science Fiction vibe to them and could be really difficult to translate.

    I was thinking about a tie-in between this project and Happy Scans, since this is a relatively small live journal community and many people are unaware of their work.

    But then, I asked F.J. DeSanto (Author of the Cyborg 009 Graphic Novel from Archaia) and he said there's still the possibility for Comixology release more Ishinomori's series (including the rest of the Cyborg 009 manga), but no official announcement has been made so far.

      Unfortunately, I'm not in condition to do any long series at the time. Only occasional story arcs like this.
