Volume 1 - tweaked translation

A “homemade” tweaked translation of the Klonoa manga. I used powerstone05’s translation as a springboard. Enjoy and please be sure to link back to the album if you use any of these images! The book is difficult to scan due to it’s thickness so hopefully these photos will do!

(Notes: I was really bored one day. I’ve had a copy of this manga just lying around but I always wished I could open it up and read it as the only translation of it exists online. So I put my arts n’ craft skills to work and got out the translation (which powerstone05 remarks as amateur) to tweak it. Page by page I fixed up the dialogue so it flows better. The gags are mostly visual but I threw in some pun work and other little jokes… hopefully they give you a chuckle or two! Please pray for the three tape dispensers I used up in the making of this.)

So far, I've only read chapter 1, but it already feels like I'm reading an official English translation. Powerstone's translation plus the jokes and puns you've thrown in really make it feel official. Plus, I love what you've done with the book as well.  :big_smile:
