Translated Scans

With Viz Comics having stopped the production of English language Urusei Yatsura manga (right when it was getting good too), fans in the English speaking world have been left out in the cold.

Wanting to let those who can't understand Japanese still be able to read the continuing misadventures of the UY gang, a group of dedicated fans have taken it upon themselves to painstakingly scan pages of the manga and have them translated to English. The result of their ambitious endevor is practically the same experience as having a professionally translated manga in your own hands, without the paper cuts.

The translations continue to be a work in progress. Currently all volumes have stories that are ready to view.
