This is a page on the Bible section of the Take Out artbook, which I'm trying to translate.
What's the Take Out artbook, you ask?
Well, ages ago when Outlaw Star.Net's Message board was separate from the site and on Ezboard: I came across such information of the book when looking up Outlaw Star information. Having no clue what it could be, I asked about. Starwind 500 even replied in that thread and so did my old OLS merchandise mentor: khmerRage99.
Everybody was convinced it was a Outlaw Star artbook and I soon wrote if off as such.
I later found it on a Anime webstore for about $35.00 and decided to save my money up for it.
Until, one day, on someone's website, they were selling the thing for $10.00.
I soon bought it and discovered it wasn't a Outlaw Star artbook. It was a Uchuu Eiyuu Monogatari/Future-Retro Hero Story (UEM translates into Space Hero Story/Tales) artbook. Something I found out about when researching Takehiko Itoh's works, but could hardly find anything to it during those days. So the book was a goldmine of information to me.
It was later when I got the manga books (8 volumes in all) from Amazon Japan, that I started learning more from it. Trust me, I'm not some translator whiz. I'm lucky with the Rubi pronunciation key being in there sometimes. And other times I have to second guess and see if the kanji matches up with what's in my dictionary.
Uchuu Eiyuu Monogatari takes place in the Fixed Star Era, probably eons before the Toward Stars Era. During this time, we really haven't branched out into other solar systems like in Outlaw Star/Angel Links. Instead, it focuses more on our solar system.
UEM/FRHS is also based around a lot of older Sci-fi fiction (Known as dime novels, pulp, retro, or even Victorian.), so expect alien races to be on certain planets like Mars, Venus is a lush jungle, and what not.
There is no Dragonite! Ships actually operate on mana (See OLS esp. 23 on about mana, plus three UEM/FRHS characters show up in that esp. as well).
FRHS is about a young student named Juji Godah going to High School. Once there he encounters the wrath of one teacher by the name of Kohryu, and meets up with a girl named Sakumi (they also don't get off on a good start).
However, Juji has gotten something from his grandfather, the Legendary Roger Glifis of the Quartermen. A strange ship shows up at the back of the schoolyard, to which Kohryu, Juji, and Sakumi investigate. And that's when the misadventures and adventures on Earth and around the Solar system starts for Juji Godoh.
Note: The sound clips come from Drama CDs, there was no anime produced so far on the manga series. I'll also try to get sound clips from the Outlaw Star anime concerning Ark, Urt, and Hadull. That is if I can do it.
Yet another note: The profile images are huge for translation purposes. They do take up a lot on my site. So send me translation notes of the profiles/etc. stuff, and I'll credit you as a translator on this page. Plus it will allow for me to delete the big files and replace them with smaller images.
Humans, creatures, aliens, etc.
Spaceships, weapons, items of note/importance, etc.
Planets, geological features, hangouts, cities, etc.
