- Zoids Official Fan Book 1 Update  [Site]


Posted: Saturday, April 27th, 2019: 2:54 AM
    There's been a rescan of the entire first Zoids Official Fan Book volume. This features cleaned up images which no longer suffer as much from over exposure bleaching away the details. Double page spreads have been patched and no longer show page gutters. Before, we also had pages chopped up into various smaller panels. While we still have separate smaller panels to keep the reading placement consistent, the main header image of each story section now shows the entire page, so you can see what it looks like as it was printed in the book. There are a couple minor exceptions, where the page was oddly proportioned in the book.

    We've also added the first wave of Zoid profiles, starting with the Side of the Republic. As normal, these profiles are approximated using Google Translate, so expect some errors, and take everything with a grain of salt. On that note, however, we've gone back and changed some details to what we feel are more accurate translations.




- Zoids Guardian Force Anime Update  [Site]


Posted: Saturday, April 27th, 2019: 2:54 AM
    We've updated the Guardian Force section with the final 3 episodes. This includes a large number of screencaps and episode summaries, along with featured character/Zoid lists. There's still a ton of Chaotic Century episodes that need to be updated to blu-ray quality, though.




- Zoids Index Updates  [Site]

- Standard Profile Updates

Posted: Saturday, April 27th, 2019: 2:54 AM
    Three new Zoids have been added to the Zoid Index. These include the Camouflage Battleship, the Blade Liger, and the Liger Zero Panzer. The Camouflage Battleship is the unnamed carrier in the Chaotic Century anime. We went with its identifying title from the DVD concept art for the name. The Liger Zero Panzer is based on the Battle Story, for the most part. We may add a separate page at some point for Bit's specific Panzer, but in the mean time we include noted differences between it and the Battle Story Panzer. The Blade Liger is a full profile including a color chart.




- Smack Zoids! Index Updates

    I've gone back and adjusted a lot of the data from our Smack Zoids! article to fix mistakes and rewrite things for better flow. The Zoids involved in our two current articles have also been added to the Zoid Index, so that people can find specific info with relative ease. Any related Zoid pages have also been updated to reflect the concept art seen in this section.

The pages added include:
    Atrocious Wolf
    Blade Liger MK-II
    Command Wolf MK-II (Concept)
    Konig Wolf Silver Fang
    Liger Zero Phantom
    Liger Zero Shield
    Powered Wolf
    Prototype Konig Wolf
    Proto Wolf (Western Type)
    Rapidly Wolf
    Spino Liger
    Tyranno Liger
    Ultimate Liger




- Zoids CC Manga Reprint!  [Official]


Posted: Saturday, April 27th, 2019: 2:54 AM
    Ueyama & CoroCoro have recently announced that the Chaotic Century manga will be reprinted in 3 large volumes! These volumes will include the original manga (not the EX doujins). There will also be extras including character sketches, additional stories, and some color images that were originally printed in CoroCoro during its original serialization. English fans may have seen quite a few of these color images in the form of cover art for the Viz release. The first of the three volumes will be released on July 12th. The other two release dates remain to be announced.

    Out of respect for the manga artist, who is my favorite Zoids manga artist, I've made the decision to remove the Chaotic Century manga from the website for the time being. I want comic sales to thrive as much as possible, and having the manga hosted here could be a detriment to that. I hope everyone will understand, and I apologize for any inconvenience it may cause. While yes, we do have other manga up, almost all of it is out of print, from magazines difficult to obtain overseas, or already provided by free (in the case of Zoids Wild.) Stores like CDJapan will likely carry the new Chaotic Century reprint, so I strongly encourage fans of the manga to pick up a copy!

It'll probably be obtained in a manner similar to the others. We'll have more details soon. A video reviewing this issue of CoroCoro was recently posted showing off a tailless build of the Zoid, with extra detailing.

Posted: Saturday, April 27th, 2019: 2:54 AM
    The HMM Shield Liger DCS-J was displayed at Shizuoka Hobby Show 2019, at the Zoids booth. Kotobukiya posted a tweet of the Liger's display. Fans have commented about the light coloring in the official tweet, but other photos have showed a darker black for the armor. This will likely be the case with the actual kit, but time will tell.
