Triton prologue!

We have the first few pages of Triton of the Sea up for you to read! Even with just a small snippet of the story I think you'll agree that it resonates strongly today and shows what a gripping opening Tezuka is capable of crafting -- even with his main character still nothing but a baby!

The standard disclaimer applies here: This is a rough translation, with rough typesetting. The quality of the final product will be vastly better. It's only intended to give you a sneak peak of what you can look forward to if we hit our goal for Triton of the Sea!

So pledge now, and tell your friends! We have just over one week left to make it to our stretch goal of $47,000! And if you'd like to know which rewards go with which levels, use this handy graph.

      Don't just pray! Keep spreading the word and hopefully we can get enough pledges! And agreed, a very good beginning, and I'm anxious now to see if we can make the goal.

      Such a strong beginning! I will pray to the gods of manga that this gets translated!!!
