My struggle to find the scans for the Echoes manga

Postby RoyboyX » 02.13.10 8:18pm

This is probably the 50th post about EoA. But, take this into mind...

Tonight on Wikitroid, ChozoBoy added to Dark Samus' page that she may be in Episode of Aether. I have been tearing Google to shreds for the past half hour looking for some scans, yet I can find none. I wonder how we're ever going to get the rest of them. I don't want to make Unknown Name pages for all the characters, we have enough already...

Okay, you probably don't understand me now. Unless you've seen Wikitroid, which some of you may have.

Anyway, who's up to helping me shred Google in search of scans?

I'll pass... I did my own research on this very subject quite a while back and I found my effort to be futile.
Basically we're not looking in the right places -- meaning, the only scans of these (if any) are much more likely to be on a Japanese website somewhere in the reaches of the Japanese interwebs. The manga was only released in Japan, and for what I can tell, is EXTREMELY rare. No one likes Metroid enough over there to scan it, anyway. :P

Do any of you guys know of any Japanese Metroid communities, similar to MDb's? Maybe having a bunch of english-speaking foreigners trying to search Japan for a set of uncommon issues from overseas isn't the best approach.

Japanese Metroid communities


-_-

Wow Chozo, you honestly believe there's a Japanese Metroid community? The folks in Japan don't like Metroid enough to scan them for us. They prefer collecting coins and gems rather than obliterating threats to the galaxy. I don't see how these scans can't surface, I mean, why is S&J more common than EoA?

EoA was printed in a monthly manga called Comic Bom Bom and NOT serialized like S&J. It's just like the newspaper: these manga get read once and then are usually discarded. Hardly anybody keeps them. That's why it's so hard to find. But to answer the question, yes, finding a Japanese Metroid community would make this a little easier, though I'm not sure how interested they would be in scanning manga.

I know this is a little off-topic, but there ARE Japanese gamers who like Metroid.
I grabbed a few websites, that said good things about it or drew and created stuff for it.

And I have very little knowledge of Japanese:
I typed: "メトロイド " (Metroid) , " 愛 " (Love), " 賛美 " (Admirer) " ウェブサイト " (Website)
Then I used http://babelfish.yahoo.com/ , to help me.

"Metroid Webring":

"Metroid World"
http://translate.googleusercontent.com/ ... 0JZ3npafqg

^ Found it, These two sites are truly a Metroid driven. I clicked on all the links and they all had Metroid related stuff! <3 --Wheres my reward? I want a cookie!

Other sites I found that I thought were cool:

None of them appear to have anything about the manga. If I ever went to Japan guys, what would my best chances be at finding it? Hate it when things are hard.

I typed in the "Metroid World" site that I was from here and gave them a link.
I also repeated my saying in English below.

I hope they can help us, if anyone knows any Japanese please your skills to chat with these fans. :3
This may be best hope for finding this answer.

Wow, those drawings are so f'ing awesome. I love them SOOOOO MUCH! <3 <3 <3 <3
The Omega model was last updated in March of 08, so I wonder if he gave up since then.

The other Metroid fan site links are great, but overall disappointing. Most of them seem to just focus on game strategies, not really overall fandom like the MDb. I wonder if there really is a japanese equivalent to the MDb out there...

EDIT: the one with ZSS and her suit: her arm cannon's on the wrong arm... d'oh! z-_-'

I actually lol'd at that :P

Wow, it looks a LOT better flipped. Anyone else notice that should really be the directions they're facing?
