During 1996 and 1997, Mamiko Yasaka took on the task of adapting the Terranigma game into a manga version. Thanks to the Glacial Rebellion team, back in 2012, we were able to read volume 1 of this work, but volume 2 was nowhere to be found online...
However, in December 2022, a generous Reddit user shared the much-awaited scans of the second volume in Japanese!
Since I didn't see anyone taking up the translation with those scans, I decided to put aside my other projects and take it upon myself. I don't know Japanese, but the progress of artificial intelligence has been remarkable recently, and thanks to tools like chatGPT and many other websites and sources (including this very forum ), I believe I'm managing to achieve a fairly decent translation of this work.
As a sample, here I'm sharing the letter that appeared at the end of volume 1, which the Glacial Rebellion team didn't translate at the time:
So far, I have translated that letter, the prologue of volume 2, and chapters 7, 8, 9, and 10 I only have 2 left to go! You can find everything on this blog I've created to share the translation (both in English and Spanish):
Since it's a fan-made project, it's likely to be quite imperfect, so any suggestions or corrections are welcome!
I'll keep you updated with the project's news! ^w^[/url]

|Hello Riblast !
This is impressive, magnificent !
I never thought I'd see the second volume published one day!
This is great and I thank you very much for the sharing.
This publication adds depth to Terranigma and its story, it's wonderful!
It's a great gift for fans like me!
Thank you !
I just discovered it after you finalized the translation of all the chapters in Volume 2 four days ago.
For Volume 1, for those interested, it is here for example :
