Hello,

I'm new to that part of the forum. I just read the 324 chapters of gantz and I thought I'd create a post to gather all translations of alien talk from past chapters and future because translators seem to be too lazy to do it, and I don't like missing anything when reading a manga, no matter what stupid things the aliens may have to say (so far).

So here is the alphabet

last panel - image on the wall - top : tooth fairy comes (most likely)
last panel - image on the wall - bottom : bite

(For all the ads I rotate the image 90° clockwise and read the symbols top to bottom, right to left, though most of it doesn't make sense. If you can decypher it, knock yourself out, but I guess it's just gibberish since you can see that the symbol on the ad board page 10 (panel 2) doesn't match the one page 08-09
? means I couldn't get what the symbol was)

Page 08-09

I've tried to translate as much as I could with the scans I have since I don't have cleaned raws, but if you have them, I don't mind translating what I couldn't (like the menus and whatnot, I wonder if "human" is actually on it, I guess so...)

I did not change the sentences to make them sound like proper english, it's actually what's written in the bubbles, word for word (or letter for letter should I say)

I guess I'll do upcoming chapters if I don't forget it. Till then, feel free to correct any mistakes I made or even complete the alphabet. (I think some of the missing letters are some of the one I couldn't recognize, but i'm not sure)

Hope you'll appreciate. I was thinking of editing the concerned pages to insert the alien text and post the images, is it authorized ?

Thanks to whoever decypher the alphabet and post it.

ps : If this post could be sticked, thanks in advance.

Thanks for doing this. I honestly don't think the giants' lines should be translated in the scans, since they're not really meant to be "understood." I think it's better for people to figure out the lines for themselves (or read them in a thread like this).

Yeah...i posted it a month ago i think? on the Gantz hangout thread, i didn't have the translations updated past the chapter 315 though...

But i guess it deserves it's own thread.

Thought I would contribute to this old thread because I can't find a better/more complete source for the translations. I'm only gonna translate dialogue though, sorry if you wanted background signs/etc too.

Seems like the copy I am reading has translations edited in from here on. I probably won't do any more unless requested or I find more untranslated alien language. Hope this helped someone out there.
