This is going to be a double release so the editorial will be on the latter post. Though if you’re scrolling down in chronological order it would be the former… There’s a small errata on my part in this chapter; the title as typeset in the chapter itself is “Recurrence Part 1”. There isn’t a second part that follows it.
The “huh?” panel was the main contender for release picture but it wasn’t very wide and, well, memes. You might’ve noticed that Rackam talks about a ship’s “Dragon Bone” again, he last talked about it when they first crash landed on Port Breeze. The game localizes it as the ship’s keel, but I wanted to leave it as such to give a fantastical air about it.
Also, if you’re looking for a guild to join, FMNL is recruiting competitive players for its main guild and casual players for its sister guild! Drop me (kyoukaya) a message on twitter, IRC, or anywhere you can find me really, for more information. If you’re an artist, work on scanlations, or contribute content to the fandom, I’d be really interested in hearing from you!
I really don’t know how I manage to release it so fast but it just happens. This week, I don’t even have the time to crop out a panel from the manga! Also, I’d really like to thank Afezeria for helping me QC all the time, somehow I’ve never updated the credit roll… oTL
Mega is acting up. Still trying to upload the chapter to it. We’ll be using Google Drive this week. I’ll try again next weekend!
This chapter, and subsequent chapters, are released on a sort of weekly basis. They put out something every week, but it’s only half a chapter, about 10 pages. This shouldn’t bother readers anyway, we’ll compile their half chapters into a single chapter.
In other news; Defense Order is a truly horrible in-game event. And, I’m spending time doing this instead of sniping magnas all day, you’d better appreciate it!
I decided to utilize my artistic freedom a little more this chapter
(i.e memes). Are the references/jokes uncalled for? Tasteless? Trampling over the author’s artistic direction? Who’s to say?
I’ll release PSDs for every chapter from here onwards. Download them if it’ll help you translate Granblue into another language, or for fun. No need to credit us if you use them.
Now for something less important and maybe even trivial, I’m sure you, our dear reader, has realized that I strictly use the official English names provided by Cygames no matter how ridiculous (ahem, Vyrn). It just sounds so vastly different, though I suppose they were trying to draw a line to wyverns. At the very least, there’s no Japanese audio accompanying the manga to form that audio-visual dissonance. Personally, I feel that the importance of a spin-off manga like this, is it’s ability to relate back to its origins, Granblue Fantasy the mobile game. The vast majority of readers would be playing the game in English and would better relate to characters, places, things better. There’s also the fact that there is sometimes many ways of romanizing names so a definitive list of names from an authority would standardize the field, but let’s just pretend that isn’t as important.
