X Bomber Encyclopedia

No problem!I've translated a few more pages from the same section as the ones above, describing the X-Bomber's weapons -- nothing particularly revelatory on those either.[Happosai]

X Bomber Encyclopedia

I've also translated the Big Dai-X cutaway...this one was a bit easier (due to much of it being in katakana).[Happosai]

X Bomber Encyclopedia

And here it is!I've left some of the translations quite literal, whilst for others I've picked a suitable word to fit in with the context. The only one I've struggled with is enclosed in square brackets -- I can't quite figure out what it should be.TBH, after doing all that, I'm not sure how useful ...

X Bomber Encyclopedia

Thanks to Vanessa, I've now got the higher-resolution material to work with, so will see what I can do with the rest of the labels...I should be able to post the results later today (I'm not currently in full-time employment, so have some free time to spare, although I am also working on starting up...

The Boy from Andromeda

I've always had a love of animation, especially more unusual forms, such as stop-motion (I particularly love Eastern European animators such as Jan Svankmajer, Piotr Kamler, Jiri Trnka, Yuri Norstein, Jiri Barta...), and so know quite a lot of more obscure animation from the whole of the 20th centur...

X Bomber Encyclopedia

This is where the toilet's located:So, is there a PDF version of the encyclopedia available somewhere (PM me if it's not publicly downloadable)? I can't read the kanji (Chinese derived characters) clearly enough in the images posted above to translate a lot of the labels.[Happosai]

X Bomber Encyclopedia

Excellent find!I can translate some of the two pages with the X Bomber cut-away (amusingly, it has the toilet marked on there), but would need higher resolution versions to do the rest.Good to see familiar names still posting on here, BTW. I only seem to check in here every 12 months or so...[Happos...

The Boy from Andromeda

(Vanessa @ Mar. 14 2012,00:56)QUOTEThinking back, I do have a very vague recollection of a childrens show I saw in the 80's and I've never been able to find anything at all about it since. It was a puppet show, (although not Sci-Fi, sorry) and there were various characters played by animals, a bit ...
