Hey there. I'm going to be dumping volume 45 of Golgo 13.
I don't have any delusions about someone picking this series up for translation, but I felt like dumping it anyway.
The series is about an assassin who is hired for various jobs, some of which are assassination. He sometimes has run-ins with historical figures. Most of the stories are about him pulling off ridiculous shots, but a lot of stories are about how Golgo's legacy influences world politics and such. Some chapters don't even have Golgo in them. Viz translated 13 volumes, and 4 volumes are scanlated. There are two French omnibuses that contain author-picked and reader-picked favorites.
It's episodic, so you can pick-and-choose chapters without any plot problems or confusion.
There's also the anime. Avoid the movies though.
>one of the most iconic manga
>no need to even keep track of a story because everything is self-contained
>only a couple chapters have been translated
Does not compute
Please someone, fucking please pick this up.
The scans are even all there, you literally just have to translate and typeset it. I'd even do the typesetting myself if I had translation scripts.
Why? The plot in 99.9% of golgo13 stories is the same: golgo kills someone and fucks the girl if one is present
people want to avoid g18 generally because it's heavy in political content = complicated kanji = too difficult attentionwhores.
At least works like Master Keaton are being translated (it might be lighter on the Kanji though). Maybe the same guys will start on G-13 later.
well keaton had wider audience I'd say being jackie mcguyver chan and all. there's english DVDs for out and it didn't take too long for fans to translate the TV series, unlike G18 which got dropped multiple times and took fucking years
Top Secret Episode was so shitty but funny at the same time.
>spend all that money to get people together, buy equipment, organize training etc
>one guy reks all of it because you're a retard ignorant of the principle of the higher ground being stronger and do not know what marksmen are
I've never played the game.
What's your favorite Golgo 13 chapter? Mine is the Wasteland one with the nuclear reactor. Great ending.
