View Full Version : FINAL FANTASY TYPE-0 Manga

The FINAL FANTASY TYPE-0 manga by Takatoshi Shiozawa running in Shounen Gangan: Will it be released outside of Japan?
I bought the Japanese tankoubon (two copies, since I am working on a translation for a friend), but it would still be nice with an official English translation of both it and Kurasame Gaiden.

"A story born from the efforts of many, reborn and elaborated on.

As someone who has been following this story from the very start,

I feel that Shiozawa has bit by bit managed to capture the true

essence of these characters.

I hope that you will enjoy watching him breathe new life into them."

Anyone interested in this?

Anyone interested in this?

What do you mean interested in this? Reading it? I would! Because for some strange reason...did the game already get released...I can't remember. Anyways I'm a fan of the FF series...no matter how bad the reviews people say. As an RPG-er the FF series aren't that bad. People just hate grinding and using their head to think, solve puzzles, or how to beat a monster using strategy.

The game was released in Japan last year. No date has been set for an overseas release.

Saw this recently in the store of my favorite ebay seller. Looked promising but...resisting it for the time being. (Too many pre-orders and not enough gil...^_^') Will pick this up in the future!

That's good to hear, Yuki.

In the meantime...message.

Sadly, I don't see anyone localizing this series anytime soon, especially since the game does not have a release date announced. Also, when was the last Final Fantasy manga series released in the states? There is no manga love for Final Fantasy fans. ADV did however release the Unlimited anime, but that is not manga. Tokyopop busted out three Kingdom Heart manga series, but they were not FF. Also, both of those companies ...RIP.http://na.square-enix.com/tools/tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/img/smiley-cry.gif

Tokyopop never even finished the KH2 series before it went under. No one has picked up the rights to it since.

I'd love if the manga could be translated. I've read some fantranslations of the first chapter of Kurasame's story, and as well as the Type-0 main story and loved it.

12th Jul 2012, 14:58
Oh, there is a fan translation of it?

15th Jul 2012, 13:50
I know the first 2 Volumes are translated to English.

15th Jul 2012, 13:57
Chapters? Mhm...and the third is in the making.

15th Jul 2012, 17:51
There are actually 4 Volumes for the Type 0 Manga.

1 for the Spinoff for Kurasame and another one releases in September.

15th Jul 2012, 23:25
There are not four volumes of the manga, but four chapters. I have the single volume collecting all four chapters that were released.

Hmm...we shouldn't link to scanlations here in this forum. If it was allowed, I would have linked to mine already.

16th Jul 2012, 07:28
I guess I equated the chapters to volumes then.

15th Aug 2012, 06:12
The collected Kurasame Gaiden will be released on September the 22nd.
