Very nice!

I believe that Ragey used to have a scanned copy of the SB5 manual up on his site. For some strange reason, the link to his old Super Bomberman 5 page now redirects to his new Super Bomberman 1 page. I have the manual, but they're not my scans... They might be Dragon Bomber's or something; but whatever the case may be, I doubt the owner would mind me reuploading them.

Here is the manual, uploaded for a limited time.

As for the guidebook, there was a guy on the Bomberman Wiki who bought that a year or two ago and was helping out by adding information from it. He never scanned the whole thing, though. I have a smattering of pages from it that he sent me.

Here are a few pages from the SB5 guidebook, also uploaded for a limited time.

The guidebook is seriously lacking in artwork, compared to the previous SFC guidebooks.

As for the translation of the Super Bomberman 5 manual, I'm almost certain that The Wayback Machine still has it. Unfortunately, I've lost the link to the original site, so I can't get there! If you still have the link, please try using The Wayback Machine and if it works, post that link here. I would meticulously reread this entire thread and try to unearth the original site (if it was indeed posted here), but I d rather not face the stupidity of multiple younger versions of me across the span of several years.

Thanks for the scans! In return, I believe this should be the link to that SB5 translation site on TWM.

Onto Kanatia Star.





I also made minor edits to the first page of the Bomber Star enemies, one to fix a romanization and the other to point out a pun/portmanteau we missed the first time. The new image is in the post I made before.

On a side note, I remember someone way earlier in this thread was complaining about the difficulties of scanning the books and such. (I know those feelings, bro.) The only way to get a nearly-perfect scan job is to debind the book (in other words, tear it apart and pull out the pages) and scan each page separately. Which sucks because these things are already kind of a hassle to get a hold of, so to have to destroy them for the sake of sharing them with the world is a bit Very Sad-inducing. I've already debound the Bomberman 64 4-Koma Gag Battle book, and while my scan job this time around is much better than when I tried it several years ago, the bibliophile in me continues to be appalled that I did such a thing to one of my books. The thought of repeating the process for 14+ volumes of assorted Bombermanga is just A-GO-NY, A-GO-NY all around.

(There is a way to rebind debound books, but I've yet to try it out.)

I haven't posted in here in a while. Anyway, something reminded me that Ragey posted the Saturn Bomberman Hudson Official Guidebook some time ago with no fanfare that I know of, and I figured that I would translate the enemy characters' descriptions. So here they are:

So among other things, Ragey has uploaded the guidebook for Super Bomberman Panic Bomber W. It has actual art of Space Bomber! This is a little surprising, given that Bomberman Maniax only showed his in-game pixel art despite showing art of the World Bombers.

It also has some text describing him. I figured that I would translate it, but it didn't yield anything that interesting (only the relevant parts are here):

[Expand] Japanese
正体不明、宇宙に生息する謎のボンバーマン。
こいつこそが悪の元凶であり、最終ボスだ。
その目的は何なのか?
それはエンディングで確かめてほしい。

「Bagura Caption]
今までの相手はほんの小手調べだった

「Space Bomber Caption]
ひ弱な外見からは想像のできない強さだ

***

6-2 スペースボンバー

いよいよ最後の決戦。ワールドボンバーズを操っていただけあり、その実力はまさにナンバーワン。
とにかく積むスピードが早く、的確に攻撃してくる。
大連鎖を狙ってこないのが唯一の救いだが、こまめな2、3連鎖による攻撃はそれ以上驚異。
遅れを取らず、素早く消していくこと。

「Caption]
ワールドボンバーを操っていた最終ボス!!

そして……

スペースボンバーの居城である宇宙ステーションは破壊され、地球に再び平和が訪れた。
ワールドボンバーズたらはそれぞれもとの生活に戻っていく。
ボンバーマンはバカンスへと旅立っていった。
プリティとシャドウの行方は知れなかったが、とにかくめでたし。

「Caption Upper]
爆発する宇宙ステーション。
ボンバーマンはからくも脱出

「Caption Lower]
そして地球には再び平和が帰ってきたのだった

[Expand] English
A mysterious, unidentified Bomberman who lives in space. He's the real evil culprit, and the final boss. What is his goal? Reach the ending to find out.

[Bagura Caption]
Your opponents up until now were only a warm-up.

[Space Bomber Caption]
Behind his weak appearance hides unimaginable power.

***

6-2 Space Bomber

Finally, it's the decisive battle. He controlled the World Bombers. His skills make him almost number one. Anyway, he attacks by quickly making piles with precision. Your sole salvation is not in making large chains, but by making chains of 2 or 3; any more would be a miracle. You cannot win by delaying. You must clear [Bombermen] quickly.

[Caption]
The final boss who manipulated the World Bombers!!

And so...

Space Bomber's space station lair* is destroyed, and peace once again returns to Earth. The World Bombers each return to their normal lives. Bomberman departs on a vacation. Pretty and Shadow's whereabouts are unknown, but they are fine.

* The word here specifically refers to a lord's residence, like a castle.

「Caption Upper]
The space station explodes. Bomberman barely escapes.

「Caption Lower]
Once again, peace returns to Earth.

So all we really have is:

1) He literally lives in space.

2) He's the one who really controlled the World Bombers, not Bagura. Well, that was already pretty obvious.

3) His lair is specifically called a space station.

4) The ending is described in detail. That stuff was pretty clear in the credits anyway.

If anybody is still wondering and never checked my article on the Wiki, Space Bomber's goal - which the guidebook decides to leave ambiguous - is apparently to either eat the world or its inhabitants (or both?). He uses the word "itadakimasu" which is something people say when they're about to eat something. It's probably an allusion to "To Serve Man".

Hello, so I did some editing on the manga pages present in the Super Bomberman 5 manual, just for fun. I didn't wanted to create a thread just for this, so i'm posting it here in case anyone is interested:

Spoiler:



The script is based on a translation I saw on the wiki, along with my own knowledge of japanese. I took some liberties to build a more concise dialogue too. The original scans are from DragonBomber.
I apologize if this isn't the appropriate place to post it.

Wow, very nice! Very Happy

There's a small typo in one panel ("With the aid of your stenght") but other than that, it looks very polished.

Yeah I don't mind people hijacking my thread to post scanlations. Happy

I see! Sorry for that. Although my English is decent sometimes i make silly mistakes, since its not my native language. Thanks for pointing it out.

Anyway, I discarded this script almost entirely, because I decided to redo the whole translation. Here it is the updated version:

Spoiler:



Again I made some adaptations, but now it's very minimal. If someone wants to give it a shot, here's the transcript:

Spoiler:
泰平なボンバーワールドに
帝王テロリンの魔の手が
迫っていた…

ここがボンバー
刑務所か…

凶悪ボンバー達よ
今、出してやるを!

私と共にこの
世界を手に入れ
ようではないか!

なんだって!
凶悪ボンバー達が
脱獄した?!

しかし、あの
凶悪ボンバー達を
手なづける
なんて…

帝王テロリン…
これは強敵だ…

うむむ…

ボンバーマン
ボクも戦うよ!

ルーイ!

キミがいれば
百人力さ!!

敵は強いぞ!!
ガンバレ
ボンバーマン!!



Feedback is welcome, feel free to point whatever you guys find wrong. I'm planning to do the entire manual.

Great, but... any particular reason why? It was already translated a long time ago. I think that translation took some liberties as well though.

It's more about training my japanese than anything, I'm not even sure if I'll retranslate the entire manual (What I really meant is that I plan to do the same image treatment I did with the manga pages). I retranslated the manga mostly because the sentences were bothering me a little, since it's a mix between literal translation (which doesn't go too well in narratives) and strange choices of adaptation. The rest should be fine since it's informative text in its majority, but I want to give it a try anyway (in fact I'll be using the old translation to do some proof-check too).

Okay, I wondered if that might be the case. Cool!

...By the way, on a little tangent, that whole "the evil hand of [bad guy] drew near" thing sure is common in Japanese video game stories. I forgot it was in Super Bomberman 5's manga too. I wonder why it's so common, with the same phrasing and everything.

A while back we scanslated some short comics that came with the manual for Panic Bomber W. Check 'em out here: http://bombermanga.tumblr.com/.....c-bomber-w
