    It can't be worse than the Kissplay manga with underage girls and robots with phallic tounges....

    If there's a Urotsukidoji-like Transformers parody on the net, I do not want to know about it.

    KISS Play was explicitly made for MA15+ audiences, whereas this manga is from the 80s and was targeted at kids. Plus this was the ONLY time that Hubcap and the Omnibots ever appeared in original G1 era canon! Now it will be available in English.

    It's a pass for me for obvious reasons but stoked to see it becoming available for wider audiences.

    Never been a comics guy, think the only comics I read were a couple of the Dreamwave ones back in the day, but I am tempted to get on this.

    Default Transformers: The Manga

    This item was announced a while ago so there may be a thread on this somewhere but the Transformers: The Manga vol 1 (English translation) is now available to preorder at Amazon and some other book shops.

    Transformers: The Manga, Vol. 1 (Volume 1) https://www.amazon.com.au/dp/1974710..._MYxhEbQF2QGEA

    Hardcover, 288 pages for $37 is pretty good.

    Vol 2 is also up for order at other stores.

    Did they add anything extra for the English translation edition by any chance?

    Yep, but it was a while ago, so I had to go back a few pages to find it.

    Post #15 has the second volume link too.

    It looks like the first volume has been delayed a month to March 10th, but the second volume still has a release date of May 12th.

    A third volume has been listed on amazon.
    This third volume is noted as being 378 pages, and with the other two being about 288 pages each, that's a lot more than the 630 pages of the original Japanese book... so they must be including a lot of extra things.

    I wonder if they'll use the Anglophone or Japanese names in their translation.
    e.g. will Optimus Prime be called Optimus Prime or Convoy? Will the Autobots be called Autobots or Cybertrons? ...etc

    P.S.: If I were doing the translations I'd use the Anglophone names.
