Hey, my brother recently bought three Sonic manga's off of EBay and wanted to upload the scans in the event that they hadn't been found. Here's a preview of some of the content:

Download.

I thought Yuski uploaded and even began translating these but I might be thinking of something else.

There's probably scans of this somewhere. It's the comic that has Sonic's band. Probably rare in america anyway.

I don't believe they were ever uploaded in their entirety. High quality rescans are welcome in either case.

If you really wanna impress us, buy and scan the Sonic Jam strategy guide. I've been wanting to see that. It has alot of inside info.

While yes, this comic had been scanned in the past, it was never in such high quality. So scanning them this big is a very nice thing to do.

There was also a translation that was kinda...weird? It was super literal in the sense even Mega Drive was called "Mega Dora" and you had the Motobug shout "Fuck off, Sonic!" There's no way the original intention of the author was having the badnik shout fuck. It's like those old school fan dubs of Dragonball Z where everyone is swearing every five seconds but they are clearly not doing that.

I know a guy who wants to do a poke at an English version, and has been frothing at the bit for scans such as these. Even though he doesn't really know Japanese so. Yeah. I don't know. So maybe something will come of that!

or i could do some begging here for a proper translator person

I don't think the original Japanese scans for those were ever released, so they may be lost for now. =\

I still have Yuski's scans. Should I upload them ? They're not in big resolution.

Thanks a lot for scanning and uploading this!

COVER PAGE
"If you read this, you'll understand my software's world"

PAGE 2
Title (red)
Sonic The Hedgehog
Subtitle
Comic Story (lit. "Story Comic") Vol.1
Paragraph
In the span of 3 issues, the comic story of the light-action game "Sonic The Hedgehog" will be introduced.
Volume 1: Sonic, who got jammed up at the concert by the evil Dr. Eggman's sinister plan, snapping outburst of rage~!

(( lit. "from this issue, 3 times in(over, spanning), light-action game (Sonic The Hedgehog)'s game story, using comic edition(version), will be introduced (explanatory tone/nuance) ... Story 1, Villian Dr. Eggman's evil plan , caused(makes) to jam(jamble) the concert , puttsun'ing (like, blood vessel popping , snapping kind of sound effect lol) raging outburst ))

Pink Bubble
"My name's Sonic.
Ya' call me a "hedgehog" in your language, huh?
I play the main character in a game that'll be comin' soon.
So, for everyone waitin' on me, let's introduce some of the game's story with this manga.
Full power, let's GO!"

(( lit. My name, Sonic. Using you (all of you)'s language, "hedgehog" calling(as) eh?. I, as main character(hero), the game that I become active role, soon(ly) will be made to launching(coming) (explanatory tone), and, to everyone (in the state of) expectantly waiting on my behalf, only a bit (of) game's story, using this manga, let's introduce (kind of sorrynotsorry tone if I'm not mistaken) というわけ gives a "that's the case" type of tone. (using) full throttle, full power, GanGan (large bell sound), GO (emphasized with force) ))

PAGE 3
Panel 1
Nobody knows,
Nobody saw it.
The very peaceful South Island.

Panel 2
But….!!

ANIMALS (background talking)
"What (is it)?"
"What (is it)?"

SFX
Zun Zun (like: "Thump")

Panel 3
EGGMAN
"Kahahaha, outta' my way!!
Outta' my WAY!!"
"I'll take this island!!"

*Eggman uses ワシ (washi) here, which I believe is わし (washi), which is the way an old man would say わたし (watashi = "I, me"). He also uses ゾ + イ (zo + i) at the end of his sentences, which is a masculine way to strongly emphasize.
The way Sonic talks is really casual/slangy, which makes sense. He also will say "I, me" using オイラ (oira), which I believe is a variation of 俺(ore), which is a slangy/manly way to say "I, me"
He also says "Me / I" a lot, which is normal in English but probably kind of self-centred sounding in Japanese, I think.

What is the best way to update for you guys, should I just continue editing this post?
I can use Photoshop to go overtop of the Japanese speech bubbles in English if you would like.
The SFX would remain in Japanese though.

This will be a pretty slow process because I have other things on my plate.
Anyways, this is exciting for me. I've been studying Japanese diligently for the past few years and Sonic will be my first translation job, I hope I can do a good job for y'all !
I DO have a request, if possible. Is anyone able to get their hands on the Sonic Generations and Sonic Colors manga? And possibly knows what this manga with Metal Sonic is ?

Because Metal Sonic looks like a badass here.

Their was some dude on SSMB who had them and said he would try to get them uploaded but he disappeared a month later and haven't been seen in 4 years.

Woun is also a good lead and hes active! hit him up on Twitter and see if he and his Russian buddies can dig up the manga.

Yes, exactly. I couldn't think of a good way to word that. :v:
