Well, this project has taken quite a while. I've been sitting on the raws for this for quite a few years now - I'm glad it's finally done! Now at last the world can enjoy the gritty, lewd (!) and wild tales of Iwakoshi Kunio in english. It only took 36 years to happen! (The original release date was 1978)
Extra special thanks to Rinruririn who has been the translator for this project.
(If you are interested in more Iwakoshi Kunio let me know, I am considering continuing with more of his work)
While working through some old PSX games the other day I decided it would be fun to track down some of the soundtracks for my collection.
In my search I found that the soundtrack for Broken Sword II is markedly
more difficult than other more popular games to track down, often
ending up in dead ends at registration only forums, unseeded torrents or
gruesomely split up into individual tracks. (Keep in mind that for some reason there are a whopping 236 tracks on the soundtrack.)
So in light of that I have packed it into one zip file so that hopefully in the future others will be able to find the soundtrack easier than I did.
PS You can also buy it for very cheap at GoG, however I do not believe that contains the OST.
the first chapter in a very exciting tankobon project!
As soon as I saw this cover I knew I wanted to work on it. Who could resist such a fun looking pulp art style? Some have said to me that the art feels a bit dated, well that's because this was first published some time around 1978, classic!
I hope that you enjoy this project as much as I have enjoyed the (long) process of getting it to this stage! This translation has technically been around 36 years coming so, I think it's high time to bring the work of Iwakoshi Kunio into english.
[Strange Scans] shares the Final Fantasy IX love with yet another comission!
This one features the loveliest eyepatched general in all of Alexandria.
I have never been sure if Beatrix is actually missing her right eye or the eyepatch is a style thing. I would generally assume that an eye patch = damaged eye. But Blank wears a belt over his eyes for no apparent reason, so perhaps it is just the fashion of the day?
Follow through to after the jump to find out more about this comission!
