- Zoids Wild EX-ZERO Update!


Posted: 2020-07-11 22:57:44

 Chapter 3 has been added to Zoids Wild EX-ZERO! This chapter introduces the Sniptera, and also a clear connection to the anime world of Zoids Wild Zero. This is interesting, as there was mention in an earlier interview that they would've liked to include Zoids like the Genospino without contradicting the lore of the show. I'm sure we can all also appreciate flying sort of cats!

- Zoids Wild 2: Volume 2!


Posted: 2020-06-30 00:27:39

 Zoids Wild 2 is releasing its second manga volume on June 26th! This manga has an excellent style, so I highly recommend picking it up. You can get a copy at Amazon Japan for 670 yen (about $6). Amazon JP requires a separate account from your US amazon account, but you can pay with your normal cards. Some chapter previews were posted over on twitter showing off the more recent chapter art, including the Zero Grizis.

Posted: 2020-06-01 09:30:46

 Ninjas, and scorpions, and mummies, oh my! Chapter 6 of Zoids Generations has been added, and it has some fairly dramatic scenes. I won't spoil to much. We only have 2 more chapters of the main story to go, but that's only half of the book. There's still customs and models yet to do!



 

- The Art Of HMM Art Book!


Posted: 2020-06-01 09:29:48

 The twitter for HMMZ_Art has revealed their plans for this twitter account! It was created to advertise the upcoming art book, ZOIDS ART OF HMM 2006~2020, an amazing collection of box art, concept art, and story info, with over 80 pieces of package art from the HMM series. This book is being printed with high-saturation printing technology to maximize its beautiful artwork. Not only will it include the concept sketches seen in the instruction manuals and the art along the side of the box, but it'll also contain the battle stories that were written for each Zoid. Many of these stories have aspects unique to HMM. We're looking forward to hearing more about this project!

- Zoids Official Fan Book 2 Update!


Posted: 2020-05-27 11:47:40

 3 more chapters have been added to Official Fan Book 2! In these chapters we meet the Geno Breaker and Death Stinger, and both Zoids prove to be a terrifying force. We only have 3 story chapters left in this book, including the epilogue, but they're shaping up to have some awesome doom and gloom.



 

- Operation Manual Z


Posted: 2020-05-27 11:44:35

 TT has posted their latest booklet, Operation Manual Z, for free online in consideration of customers being unable to go out! It was in this book that we got our first full look at the Zero Phantoth. It also shows off some nice custom examples, tiny concept art thumbnails, etc.



 

Zoids Wild EX-ZERO Update!


Posted: 2020-04-18 20:38:09

 Zoids Wild EX-ZERO has been given its own page over in the books section (last image in the stories category). It is also still linked through the HJM article. With this change, Chapter 2 has also been added! Please bare in mind that this uses automatic translation, so will have some mistakes. All scans are there, though, including story pages, advertisements, etc.

 I also wanted to ask for some opinions. The books section right now has every volume posted separately. Do you like this format, or would you rather each series only have a single image, leading to a main page, like what the Official Fan Books have? You can cast your vote through this Straw Poll.



 

Zoids Generations Update!  [Site]


Posted: 2020-03-30 10:55:50

 The Zoids Generations page has been updated with Chapter 5! In this chapter we make a quick pit stop to participate in the Sunlight Festival. Soon after, Midori leaves on a task to deliver a warning to Veauregard, the owner of a Zoid Ranch that's already under a lot of pressure. As always, this chapter is translated using google translate, so expect a number of errors. Thank you for your understanding!



 

Official Fan Book 2 Update!  [Site]


Posted: 2020-03-30 10:55:38

 The Zoids Official Fan Book page has been with chapters 3 & 4 of Official Fan Book 2! These chapters are relatively short, but we'll be moving into the meat of the story soon. For now, the bulk of the Republic's forces have to make their way to Europa, before the real war begins! Please be aware that this page uses automatic translations, so may contain errors.



 

Official Fan Book Volume 2 Update!  [Site]


Posted: 2020-03-08 14:33:14

The Start of Zoids OFB 2!  [Site]


Posted: 2020-03-02 04:46:10

 Today we have finally started a translation of the Zoids Official Fan Book 2! You can read the introductory pages along with the first chapter. There's also a huge map of the Western Continent and a Liger Zero poster. We'll be actively working on the rest of the book and hope to have more soon. Please note that these pages use automatic translation, so may contain mistakes.



 

Zoids Generations Update!  [Site]


Posted: 2020-02-25 00:15:50

 Chapter 4 of Zoids Generations is now available! In this chapter we begin to hear some important questions, like why Bio Zoids are attacking and devouring other Zoids, and what Seki may know about the situation. We're also introduced to the gorgeous Empressa and her pilot, Sona, the princess of the country of Ya Han, who has arrived to investigate the sudden surge of Bio Zoids.

 As a general reminder, our Zoids Generations chapters use automatic translation, so contain a decent number of errors! They are provided as an easier way for readers to get the gist of what's happening in the story, until such a time that better translations become available. Thank you for your understanding!



 

Official Fan Book Vol. 1 Update!  [Site]

 Falcarius dropped an amazing Christmas gift around December 24 ~ 25th -- A full translation of the Official Fan Book Vol. 1! He's given permission for the Fan Book Vol. 1 book to be updated with these translations, so they should now be free of all the errors that crop up from automatic translation~ The whole book is already done.



 

DHM & HJM Section Revamps!  [Site]


Posted: 2020-01-11 23:10:26

 Our sections for Dengeki Hobby Magazine and Hobby Japan Magazine (found under articles) have received some much needed care. Both have been divided into pages organized by year, to cut down on the mass thumbnail loading spam. The main page now, instead, contains tables for the magazines throughout the years. This is a simple checklist, mostly for my own reference, to include what magazines I currently own (and will eventually post- as scans are cleaned up), what ones are known to (or not to) contain Zoids content, and what ones are currently unknown.

 With this update, Dengeki Hobby Magazine has also received some updates. You can now find scans for April, November, and September 2002. This contains some neat stuff, like the old Wild Liger statue used in the box art, a Gojulas Mariner custom (well, lots of Giggles content), and some concept art from the Smack Zoids series.



- Zoids Wild EX-ZERO!

 On the topic of HJM, the January 2020 issue launched a new series known as "Zoids Wild EX-ZERO". This featured a battle story esque plotline, using custom models in diorama settings to deliver the story. Custom examples were included following the story, and it was heavily implied that it would continue in later issues. However, the February issue contained no Zoids content at all. Here's hoping that more will be added in later issues!

 In the mean time, an automatic translation of the new story, Zoids Wild EX-ZERO has been posted! You can find this both under the HJM 2020 page (in the header for that month), and in the books section. As this relies on automatic translation it is bound to have a lot of mistakes, and is provided only as a convenient way to better read those automatic translations. The page includes all content published during that month.



 

Zoids Wild Crowdfunding Campaign!  [Official]


Posted: 2020-01-11 23:09:08

 Zoids has seen the start of its first crowdfunding campaign! Measuring at a massive 50 x 44 cm, ZOIDSWILD The ART of BATTLEFIELDS is a book that showcases tons of the beautiful Zoids works seen in CoroCoro Comic and other outlets. It's wonderful to see these beautiful photos without all of the text that clutters them in the accompanying magazine.

 In addition, if the project is funded, everyone who pledged the required 11,000 yen (roughly $110) will receive the Fang Tiger "White Tiger Form" armor parts set, a set that was currently one of CoroCoro's 100 limiteds. They will also receive a special poster of the cast from the Chaotic Century manga. The poster is printed in the same size as the book, so there will be no creases in it.

 The cover of the book features a 1/1 scale Wild Liger cap, which is fitting for the recent series. The book also has a double fold to see the panorama style diorama images.



 So, what do we need to know? First off, the crowdfounding is available to residents of Japan only. If you try to support from another country, your pledge will be cancelled. However, services like From Japan, Celga, and White Rabbit Express will be able to help you relay your support. The project is currently 15% funded with 27 days to go, ending on January 31st.

Zoids Wild Official Fan Book Vol.1!  [Official]


Posted: 2020-01-11 23:08:42

 The crowdfunding isn't the only momentus occasion! Zoids Wild released its first Fan Book on December 27th! You can purchase it here for 990 yen. So, what all is in it? The book contains profiles featuring images from earlier issues of CoroCoro, along with small fact files. Many of those profiles contain a tiny thumbnail of concept art for the Zoid as well. There are a couple custom examples.

 Aside from that, the book also contains a new chapter of Zoids Wild 2, featuring how Kai (as a child) first encountered the Beast Liger! It contains a second manga chapter, this time from Ueyama, telling the story of how Irvine met Tornado.

 The book also comes with a carrying case made out of thin plastic, which is large enough to fit a medium scale Zoid. This should be perfect for people who like to travel with a kit! A limited card of the Rising Liger is also included.
