As we previously covered, Splatoon was set to receive a pair of new manga series’ based on the game in the Japanese magazine Famitsu. Those manga have since surfaced on Famitsu’s website for the Internet’s viewing pleasure, so the brief wait is now over. Unfortunately, until some fan translators get their hands on it, this manga is unreadable to those not fluent in Japanese. That, however, does not mean you cannot enjoy the art of the manga, which is quite nice. There are only a few pages of the series’ right now, but that is sure to add up over time. Check it out here! You can view the different manga by clicking on the three gray icons just below the image.
Additionally, we have a translation of some of the website for you! The text under the image says:
The stylish squid game Splatoon has a serialized story starting! There are two series being updated every week, the same of which appear in Weekly Famitsu: Takahashi’s “Heartwarming Squid Yonkoma” (a 4-panel gag comic) and the cool “Play Manga,” written by various authors who enjoy Splatoon!
(Translator’s Note: there is pretty liberal use of the word “ikasu,” which means “to be stylish/cool,” and is written in katakana. “Ika” means “squid,” and is also written in katakana.)
Below that, there is a spot to fill in a survey, asking readers to provide gender, age range, and any thoughts or suggestions about the work and what they would like to read in the future, promising to feature these opinions on blogs and other similar places.
Thanks to our translator Will! Let us know what you think of the Splatoon manga in the comments below.
