    Touchdown! Galaxy Convoy

    It's amazing how the formula for Transformers manga has hardly changed a bit in 20 years. I went from translating Super Robot Life manga straight to Galaxy Force manga and didn't miss a beat. Convoy is STILL screaming about BURNING JUSTICE MUST SUCCEED and the good will of Earth children powers Autobots like they're an army of Gameras.

    And if you thought that Simon Furman liked to use "..." a lot, then wait til you read *this* thing. I actually *reduced* the number for my translation but there's *still* a crapload of them.

    Still, the art's rather cool.

    Also, special thanks should go out to LoneGamer8 who supplied me with scans of the entire Galaxy Force manga series, which I will eventually translate for your amusement.

    So, um, "enjoy"...?

    yoshihiro iwamoto's story-telling ability has really gone downhill. the whole thing's story is too rushed. his work on Rockman X was much, much better.

    heh, thats pretty neat. It would be something neat to read if you don't have a lot of time to sit down and watch Galaxy Force.

    How many chapters does this manga have?

    6 Missions plus a goofy "Mission 00" which features fanart and behind the scenes comic strips by the artist.

    From what I understand, the series was cancelled and never completed, so there's no closure. It ends on the Jungle Planet with the introduction of Scourge and Leo Breaker (can't remember the Japanese names, sorry...I never watched the show).
