- Official Fan Book 4 Begins!


Posted: 2022-09-27 13:39:30

 We've got the first block of Zoids Official Fan Book 4 now available! This includes the Prologue, Nyx Map, Chapter 1, and Chapter 2. Some familiar characters make a return in this volume, and this time around, the two armies must contend with an invisible enemy far more deadly than any Helcat.

 With this update there were also some minor changes to how the books are formatted. For starters, each complete book will now include a full navigation at the bottom of each page. The Fan Books contain a lot of information and this will hopefully help people skip between sections while looking for something without needing to go back to the index page and open tons of tabs.

 The next change is that all of the little thumbnail images throughout the story sections have been placed beside the text. This may still be subject to change. However, print media can be limited on where and how it can place images, often resulting in images that, when reading in web format, often result in spoilers for what happens next. These limitations don't exist in a pageless web format, so I wanted the images to be located closest to their relevant text, as was done for Zoids Generations (Not forgotten, updates coming soon!)



 

- Zoids CC Manga Chapter 13.5 Update!


Posted: 2022-08-30 05:33:29

 It has been a long time since we posted the first 10 pages of Chapter 13.5, a story that takes place in between Van defeating the Geno Saurer and departing Porto. The chapter was originally released as part of Corocoro. Finally, the remainder of this chapter is available to read! Translations are by Falcarius, so a huge thanks for helping us complete it~



 

- Official Fan Book 3 Update!


Posted: 2022-08-16 17:33:00

 The final installment of Official Fan Book 3, the Zoids Remodeling Project 2 chapter has been added. This chapter gives a look at the various Zoid variations featured throughout the Battle Story or associated with its universe (including some of particular public interest, like Liger Zero Mariner, Death Stinger KFD, and more) as well as a few that aren't directly featured. It also shows off some of the Customize Parts that were being released at the time.

 This brings Book 3 to a close. There's going to be a considerable break between this and the start of Book 4 as I work on all the prep-work that goes into getting everything set up (scanning, organizing, patching together double page spreads, etc.) Thank you for your continued patience in the meantime!



 

- Official Fan Book 4 Update!


Posted: 2022-08-15 17:33:45

 The next segment of Official Fan Book 4 is now available! The AD2002 section takes a look at some upcoming products (from the time), some old products, and provides some the insights about how and why certain products game into existence, such as the SS (Super Small) and BLOX kits. It also includes mention of another theoretical, but ultimately unreleased product: Scaled down versions of the 1/72 motorized model kits! Imagine if we could've had a small, more affordable Mad Thunder?



 

- Official Fan Book 3 Update!


Posted: 2022-07-23 00:00:25

 First, as we get back into the swing of things, there's a new update for Official Fan Book 3! It now includes the Guylos Empire Battle Machine Beast Corps, a description of several newer Zoids of the Empire, the Imperial Army Ace Pilot Directory (with translations courtesy of Falcarius!), and the Imperial Army Organization Chart. That just leaves the upcoming & custom Zoids and the product info for this book!

(You may also notice that the book section has changed to include all book series on one page! We hope that this will make it easier to find what you're looking for.)



 

- Zoids Wild Biographies Update!


Posted: 2022-07-23 00:00:21

 The Zoids Wild Biographies section has been updated with a page for the Hunter Wolf Victor Spiegel Special! This includes an automatic translation of the Wolf's story, and official product photos posted by the company.



 

- Art of HMM Book Section!


Posted: 2022-07-23 00:00:17

 With the prototype reveal for the HMM König Wolf and Redler, there's a lot of hype going around! To celebrate, a page has been created over in Books for the Art of HMM. At this time, it doesn't include the bulk of the book. It does, however, contain a cleaned up machine translation for the interview featured at the back of the book! This roundtable discussion goes over the history of the HMM series, how it began, how each of the major team members got involved, and what to expect in the future. It also discusses the highest-ranking fan requests from recent years, including the Ultra Saurus and Death Saurer!



 

- Official Fan Book 3 Update!


Posted: 2022-01-09 00:12:20

Official Fan Book 3 has been updated with profiles for the Helic Republic Zoids, pilots, and hierarchy! OFB3 introduces the use of charts to measure Zoid abilities for speed, fire power, maneuverability, etc. It also introduces some of our favorite Zoids, such as the Liger Zero!



 

- Zoids Official Fan Book Volume 3 Update!


Posted: 2021-10-24 19:47:39

 Chapters 7, 8, and 9 have been added for Zoids Official Fan Book 3! In these chapters, Ray is forced to make a difficult decision. One that will have severe consequences for his future. These chapters conclude the story segment of OFB 3! The Zoid profiles are well underway and we hope to have the Republic segment available soon.



 

- Zoids Official Fan Book Volume 3 Update!


Posted: 2021-08-03 19:13:58

 Chapters 4, 5, and 6 have been uploaded for Zoids Official Fan Book Volume 3! As the war shifts gears and starts moving towards the Dark Continent of Nyx, the Republic has to flee through the Triangle Daras, a powerful electromagnetic sea. Just as the fleet is about to sink they receive help from a mysterious Zoids unit.



 

- Zoids Official Fan Book Volume 3 Update!


Posted: 2021-06-19 12:38:05

 Today we've got another update to Zoids Official Fan Book 3! It has been quite a while since the last update, but that's not for nothing. Over the past couple months I've been working on completing all of the image editing for the entirety of Fan Book 3. Cleaning up images, adjusting colors, and patching together double page spreads. This will make the rest of the process go much faster! In the mean time, Chapter 3 and 4 introduces the final forms of the Republic's Liger Zero CAS Units, pitted against the monstrous Death Stinger KFD!



 

- Zoids Wild Biographies Model Kit Section!


Posted: 2021-06-19 12:37:34

 Zoids Biographies has been an interesting line so far. While we'll cover all the general releases in the product news sections below, I thought I'd go ahead and make a dedicated section for it in model kits. The amount of dedicated effort going into this series makes it distinct from the general Wild section. This new page will include machine translations of the stories, re-written for better readability. They aren't perfect, but if you'd like to see what all happens in the Biographies storyline, check it out! Right now we've got the first 3 stories available.



 

- Zoids Wild EX-ZERO Book!


Posted: 2021-06-19 12:34:49

 Zoids Wild EX-ZERO, the official side-story published in Hobby Japan Magazine during 2020, has announced a brand new book! This book will include the entire story as it was posted earlier, as well as some additional content, apparently, including a new story written exclusively for the book. For now we've removed our EX-ZERO section out of respect for this upcoming sale. At the time that it was posted, I honestly hadn't expected a book! It's scheduled to be released in late July for 3,300 Yen, and is currently available on sites like HLJ and Amazon JP! HJM's twitter posted some clean images of the first Chapter, while Revolver posted teasers of the new story, Senki EX, which is still running on HJM.

Synopsis: Republican unit Blood Blood Corps is a unique task force with the intent purpose of capturing and testing upcoming Imperial technology. The group is led by Shishio Ryuu and his Armd Liger, a specialized liger with auxiliary arms used to snatch weapons off of its opponents from the Empire. As the story evolves, they discover the earliest Laser weapons, considered to be a gateway weapon to Zi's most devastating power, the Charged Particle Cannon. The Blue Bloods make it a top priority to capture this laser equipment, to prevent the Republic from losing irreparable distance in the arms race. With each new battle, Shishio's Armd Liger gains more and more equipment from its defeated opponents. Every chapter features a newly remodeled and evolved Armd Liger. Necessary changes for our team to keep up their fight with Lieutenant Cutter, a strange young man from the Empire who has an unusual effect on the Zoids that he pilots.

Timeline: Zoids Wild EX-ZERO is unique in that it's carefully crafted to fit within the world of Zoids Wild ZERO, the anime. The story begins before the anime series and makes numerous references to the show. This includes a new Regeneration Cube side-story, a chapter exploring the recovery of additional Genospino parts, and ultimately even meeting characters from the Zoids Wild ZERO anime. If you liked the anime, and understand Japanese, you'll enjoy this story. If you don't understand Japanese, it still has lots of nice diorama style images (as seen in this post), customizing examples, and hopefully more!



 

- Official Fan Book Volume 3 Update!


Posted: 2021-03-13 19:31:54

 You can now read Chapter 1 of Zoids Official Fan Book 3 in the books section! This has been a highly anticipated chapter following Ray Gregg and his Shield Liger DCS-J, and was featured in a couple of the more recent HMM box arts. So give it a read if you want to see the origin of the HMM box art!



 

- Official Fan Book Volume 3 Update!


Posted: 2021-02-21 01:49:17

 We've officially begun work on Zoids Official Fan Book 3! With a tiny update to start with. Everything before the first chapter, which includes some rather cool images from the poster double-page spreads, the prologue, etc.



 

- Official Fan Book Volume 2 Update!


Posted: 2021-02-07 05:11:19

 Official Fan Book 2 has updated with the final 3 chapters! This includes the Zoids Remodeling Project, which features a huge number of custom Zoids, including some that didn't appear in the story itself, but may still be familiar, like Climber Wolf and Spark Liger! It also features a Strength Comparison Chart for a huge number of Zoids that've appeared in the story thus far. We've put this in image format and in text format, for the sake of viewing convenience. And with that, Fan Book 2 is all wrapped up! I'll be moving on to Fan Book 3 very soon, and thank you so much to everyone who has been reading along thus far!



 

- Zoids Wild EX-ZERO Update!


Posted: 2021-02-07 05:11:06

 Chapter 5 of Zoids Wild EX-ZERO has been added, along with scans for HJM's October 2020 issue! This is the second to last chapter, but don't worry, there's plenty more planned. In this chapter, Shishio finally awakens, but his Liger does not. Will they be able to awaken the newly remodeled Armd Liger before it can be destroyed by the enemy sniper's Gun Jaguar?



 

- Official Fan Book Volume 2 Update!


Posted: 2020-12-26 16:54:58

 A new chapter has been added to Official Fan Book 2. This Chapter, Super Scoop!!, discusses the next generation Zoids, including the birth of CAS-focused units like the Liger Zero, as well as products leading up to it, like the Elephander, one of the first Zoids to introduce CAS-like gear. It also goes over some of the products released during that time, such as the large DX playsets.



 

- Zoids Generations Prologue? Chapter!


Posted: 2020-12-26 16:54:46

 The little additional side story from the Zoids Generations book has been added! You can now view the (Prologue?), which follows Raetelme on her adventure into the Generations timeline. The chapter includes pirate crew Flying Fish Pirates and their low-flying transporter, the Whale Queen. This is the last actual story chapter, but there's plenty of lore stuff coming up in the profiles.

 A page for That's Zoids "First Story" has also been added, which goes over some of Raetelme's interviews from Dengeki Hobby Magazone and the amazing art drawn by Mercy Rabbit that went along with it!



 

- Official Fan Book Volume 2 Update!


Posted: 2020-12-08 16:04:28

 We've already covered the Zoids of the Republic, but now you can read all about the Empire Zoids that featured in Volume 2 of the Official Fan Books! This also includes some Zoids that didn't feature, like the Empire's Command Wolf, and some information on the hierarchy of the Empire troops. Also fixed the broken links on the main OFB page. The next sections won't take long to address, since they're relatively short.
