    Victory #5: "Watch Out, Jean! Hurry, Star Saber!"

    I slapped that blogger site together rather crudely the other day; I'll refine it with some time. TFArchive is currently experiencing some labor shortages, so it might be a while before any newly translated manga shows up there (but my stuff will continue to show up there, I assure you).

    Anyhow, on to this issue.

    *I tried to think of a way to make Deathsaurus' dialogue less creepy and weird, but then I figured, "why"? So I translated it as is; pedophilia subtext and all.

    *Yes, Jean does say "Nintendo". Or, rather, he says "Famicon", which was the Japanese name for the original Nintendo Entertainment System. With that in mind, isn't a little strange that a boy from the year 2011+ would be so excited at receiving an NES?

    *Deathsaurus is afraid of caterpillars? Whu? I think it has to do with his earlier line about how much he hates organic creatures. I guess he's afraid of them, too.


    While the whole of the Victory manga is cracked out and insane, I think this issue is without a doubt the weirdest. But there's more craziness on the way; such as Star Saber waxing nostalgic on his boyhood days with Deathsaurus and the infamous Decepticon Babies.

    I gotta admit, this is the wierdest Victory manga yet!

    Still, it doesn't top the Kiss Players manga, which is a good thing :D

    What. The. Fuck?

    Now, in my opinions, Victory wins. But come on... Deathsaurus afraid of caterpillars? That's just stupid.
    I enjoyed it no less...

    His origin will be revealed in a couple issues, but basically, he's Deathsaurus's adopted cyborg son.

    I have already translated all ten issues of Victory, so I'll post a new one each week.

    What's worse? The fact that he wants an army of little boys, are he's basically asking 'Do you want some candy, little boy?" Still, funny in that 'OMG Creepy' sort of way. :D

    Wait, those are supposed to be boys?
    :confused2 
    I guess it was the anime mullets that made me think they were girls.

    And did Star Saber cut DeathaDezarasaurus (whatever) in half?
