Thanks to some new scans surfacing since the last time I checked, we have a new Mangas & Videogames for you today. It’s an X-Files crossover, and it’s pretty damn weird, just the way we like it.
Mediafire or Mega
or alternativly if you’d prefer it at half resolution for reading on lower-end machines
Mediafire (halfsize) or Mega (halfsize)
We finally have a decent handle on the various Mangas & Videogames contests Hobby Consolas ran. We are now pretty confident that there were a total of three sets of comics made. The first was in 1996, and the comics were printed with issues 59-62 of the magazine. The Evermore and DBZ comics we released back-to-back awhile ago where from that part. The second set were printed as a standalone book in 1997. This release, and the ones called RPG and 64 are from that book. Additionally in 2013 they did a third contest on their website. Now, Opentrain has consistent scans of all three sets, so now we can actually do them all. No promises on when of course, but hopefully eventually it will get done. This also means we’re doing a new file name scheme so those previous M&V releases will unfortunately have mismatched file names compared to future releases, sorry about that. I may upload renamed copies if anyone actually wants them.
Holy shit we’re alive again. I think we have more dead time than active time, but hey you are probably reading this in THE FUTURE where it no longer matters.
Anyway hey, have some French Club Nintendo for a change:
Mediafire or Mega
This release is a partial translation of a book called “Club Nintendo Classic” released in French. It’s a partial translation because most of the book is just your usual 90s videogame magazine fare and not particularly interesting. There are a couple of untranslated pages in here that don’t say anything terribly useful (buy our magazine, mostly) but we included them because they have uncommon (exclusive?) artwork on them. There were only a few pages of actual comic in this book. Anyway enjoy, and if you happen to know of any other French language stuff worth translating please send us a message about it because we don’t really know much about it!
First off, welcome to the new URL for opentrain. Some shit happened and we lost the old one, sorry about that. Hope this one is just as good or better. We’ve already gotten a few spam comments so I guess we’re back!
Secondly, let’s celebrate that with a new chapter of TMNT 3, chapter 3. Mediafire or alternatively, Mega.
I’m not sure if I addressed it before but there are some pages in this release that are of a drastically different resolution than the others. Sorry if the inconsistency bothers you.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
And here we’ve got the second chapter of CBB’s TMNT III manga. In two exciting flavors:
Mediafire link: click here
Mega Link: click here
Sat on this one longer than I should have, sorry about that. This chapter introduces some new characters that were not in the movie far as I tell. Chapter 3 coming at some point!
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
So here we go, the first in what is gonna end up being a long line of releases related to the third TMNT movie: Comic Bom Bom’s TMNT 3 Chapter 1.
And since Mediafire has been giving people trouble, here’s an alternative Mega link. Let me know how that works out for you guys.
This particular manga adaptation is 6 chapters. We’ll be doing the chapters as singles first and then I’ll put together a volume release, like we did with MT Gaiden. After that, there is actually another manga adaptation by Dengeki of the same movie that we will probably also be doing. Lots of people dislike the movie, but hopefully someone is entertained by these manga versions anyway. A lot of stuff is quite different than the movie, you’ll see.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
Today I’m proud to present to you possibly one of the most Opentrain-relevant releases ever. What do you get if you put together Brazil, Captain Ninja, old game magazines, and TMNT? Captain Ninja TMNT (from Gamers #3)[Opentrain].cbr
This release includes both the main comic from this issue as well as a few semi-related pages of the magazine, including an additional 1-page Captain Ninja comic about MK II.
I have a lot of people I want to thank for their help for this release. The translation has been brought to you by the efforts of grungethemovie who will hopefully be joining us for some more Captain Ninja soon. He even made the bonus page this time. Also would like to thank wilddiverse from the Technodrome forums for pointing us to the scans, and http://www.datacassete.com.br/ for scanning them. And finally we also got a little outside help on this one that was quite appreciated. Hopefully more Captain coming in the near-ish future!
So in an unheard of first, Opentrain is releasing TWO THINGS IN TWO DAYS.
Click here for Tenkaichi Budoukai action.
Yeah no kidding! At least I think this is the first time we’ve done this, I’m too lazy to look it up and that laziness is exactly why I assume we haven’t. Anyway, here’s the comic that follows the Evermore one we just posted, a short Dragon Ball Z comic with an amusing end. It was a pretty easy thing to do so we went ahead and did it.
The other day I discovered that there is in fact another book of Spanish manga published by Hobby Consolas. And we have scans of the entire thing this time! After flipping through it I was astounded to find a mock-Toriyama Secret of Evermore comic! I instantly demanded this become a priority job for Opentrain and now I can share it with you all. This file has the longest filename thus far for us, so here it is in all it’s glory: Mangas & Videogames 1st National Competition – Secret of Evermore Adventures [Opentrain].cbr!
Of course we will be doing more of this book. It’s at least as insane as the other one we’ve worked on from this magazine, so you know we’re all about this.
It’s been an interesting week or so behind the scenes for Opentrain, and it’s looking like we’ll have at least a couple more releases coming up actually soon this time around!
Note: This post was eaten! I posted this release and then the server owner had to move to a new box and used an out of date backup. So this is me attempting to remember what I posted last time!
So it looks like I did that unofficial hiatus thing again this year, sorry about that. Anyway, now we’re back with something completely different than anything we’ve done before! Thanks to the hard work of my Japanese friend jumpAlice, Opentrain presents Megaton Punch 6 (partial).
Note that this is from a doujinshi and is adult in nature, more so than any of our previous releases. Megaton Punch 6 is part of a series of doujinshi put out by Kenichi Sonoda and some friends of his. This particular release is just Mr. Sonoda’s portion of the book. This is sort of a dream project for me, as I am a huge nerd for his artwork, and here he is making a manga with lots of video game jokes and innuendo. Hopefully we will be doing more of his work in the future.
After months of nothing, here it is at last: Super Turtles volume three.
And thus, the end of the Super Turtles saga. Or is it? There is actually some full-color comics created for the action figures and magazines (I think), that we will probably eventually do once we find scans of them all. They are however an alternate version of the same story, so this particular story should indeed be complete. We also have yet another TMNT manga project already somewhat in the works, although it’s unrelated to Super Turtles.
Also, sorry about the downtime. Hopefully a release makes up for it!
