Prince Planet Flashback 2012

Just in time for the new year, here's some old manga! This Yusei Shonen Papii manga story is straight outta a 1965 issue of SHONEN MAGAZINE. Thrill to the cheap paper, the insubstantial printing, the inevitable foxing and discoloration that comes with the territory of 47 year old newsprint! Translation and typesetting by Rick Zerrano, scans and touchup by me. Click on pages while shouting "Papii!" to enlarge images.

Will Prince Planet - er, I mean Papii - defeat the mystery robot? What's the secret behind Black and White? Stay tuned for the thrilling conclusion to our manga story! Brought to you by GLICO. Gu-ri-co, gu-ri-co, GUU-RII-COOO...

Excellent, thanks Rick and Dave!

Loved the Papii quiz. "Now, what could that item be?" That would be quite a stumper, provided that you'd never read the manga or watched the show.

Dammit, I need to know what happens if I try to suntan in a room made of glass! The suspense is killing me...
