Wallaby Tidbits & Triva


Now that my Wallaby translation has been out for a while, let's go over some tidbits and trivia I learned as I translated it! Yaaaay!

Gamer Time

Wallaby is a unique comic in Azuma Kiyohiko's catalog as it was published in the gaming magazine "GAME-JIN", from the December 1998 issue until the Summer 2000 issue.

I'm not quite sure why Wallaby was published here. Azuma's most notable works were published in Dengenki Daioh, owned by ASCII Media Works, and he also did some promotional comic work for some anime produced by Pioneer. T2 Publishing seems unrelated to either of them.

Wallaby (What a Being!) - Kiyohiko Azuma


Here's another scanlation of a more obscure work done by famed manga artist Kiyohiko Azuma - Wallaby!


Try! Try! Try! - Kiyohiko Azuma - Prototype Yotsuba&! Collection

For my very first scanlation, here is Try! Try! Try!, by famed manga artist Kiyohiko Azuma.

This is an early prototype version of Yotsuba&!, where he was testing out character designs and the general flow of how a story would work. It was first published as a few webcomics on his personal website, but eventually he drew a full standalone chapter which was included in the publication of a collection of his earlier works, Azumanga 2.
