This is an archive of my completed translations, scans, and other stuff I've helped archive. Contact me at junkyarddogmkii@gmail.com if you find any typos or have suggestions/requests. A masterpost of the GG community's collective scan/translation efforts is over here

Rules I will not break for doujinshi scans/translations: Nothing published after 2009, nothing that features May or Bridget in sexual contexts, no Sol/Dizzy.

New uploads are marked with this thing:


== FUTURE PROJECTS ==

  • Guilty Gear Comic Anthology - Translation in progress
  • Lightning the Argent (Ky's light novel) - Translation in progress
  • About Him & Her (Baiken/Anji R18 comic) - This project is a long way off, but I would like to try cleaning it up and translating it eventually.

== Dengeki PlayStation F, Volume 10 (October 13, 1995) - English (unofficial)
- Archive.org - Translation of the Guilty Gear article from an early Dengeki PlayStation issue. The scans I had to work with were pretty rough/old, I didn't put the English text over the Japanese pages like I did for the April 1996 article. This appears to be the first printed preview of Guilty Gear in any magazine. The English translation starts after the 8 pages in Japanese.

== Dengeki PlayStation F2, April Special Issue, Volume 19 ( April 10, 1996) - Japanese
- Archive.org - Full scan of an issue of Dengeki Playstation. It has an article on an early/beta build of what would become the first Guilty Gear game, Guilty Gear: The Missing Link.

== Guilty Gear X SLASH Encyclopedia.
- Archive.org - Thank you to dizzyrobo (Tumblr, Twitter)for sending me a copy of this to scan. This volume has the usual fighting game guide book stuff (combos, frame data, etc) but it has an interesting several-page fanart gallery, an interview, and some other cool stuff.

== Guilty Gear XX SLASH Beat Encyclopedia.
- Archive.org - A.B.A. and Order Sol were introduced in XX Slash, so this guidebook has a lot of stuff featuring them. Intro/win dialog transcriptions + Slayer haiku table, too. Note: This is different from the GGX Slash Encyclopedia. It's confusing for all of us.

== HELIOGENOMS ==

The following are doujinshi by Denki Akiba and the Zanzibar doujinka circle. They mostly focus on Sol but have stories with other characters too.

== HELIOGENOMS (SFW, 30p) - Japanese
- Neocities - 1998, November 11. Features Sol and May with appearances by Millia and various others on some sketch pages. As far as I can tell, this is the first of the Denki Akiba/Zanzibar HELIOGENOMS series of Guilty Gear doujinshi.

== HELIOGENOMS A•D (SFW, 27p) - Japanese
- Neocities - 2001, February 11. Starts with a Jellyfish Pirates story by GOBANJMA featuring Dizzy. The rest of the art seems to be by Denki Akiba and has Johnny, Anji, Chipp, Millia, and May, then a short story featuring Sol and Axl. It concludes with a story about Order Sol and Ky. The doujinshi supplier I bought this book from included what seems to be a convention flyer by Akiba, dated 2001, May 05th, for Comiket, featuring a sketch of Mystina (Meltina in Japanese) from Valkyrie Profile.

== HELIOGENOMS LIMITED (SFW, 32p)
- Neocities - 2001, December 29 - Johnny and Sol swap spit on like page 1 in this volume. Very nice. The cover of this one has a really satisfying texture to it, almost like a thin pleather feel.

== HELIOGENOMS VERSION 4.0 (SFW, 30p) - Japanese, English
- Neocities (JP) - Neocities (EN) - 2002, December 29 - Has a story with Ky and Axl and then another with Sol and Johnny where Sol licks Johnny's throat before ripping a chunk out of it. Spicy! Not actually NSFW though. English scanlation by me.

== HELIOGENOMS IRREGULAR BOUND (SFW, 30p) - Japanese
- Neocities - 2003, February 04. Starts with a page by a doujinka that isn't Denki Akiba whose handwriting I'm too lazy to read at the moment that has Johnny, Zappa, and S'ko. Has some funny stuff with Sol, Axl, Johnny, May, Anji and Chipp with some Ky. The next chapter has a pretty heavy Missing Link recap with Sol, Justice, That Man, and some Raven. Ends with some character sketches. The pages of this one are off-white, they aren't sun damaged.

== HELIOGENOMS/SPLINTER (SFW, 22p) - Japanese
- Neocities - 2003, June 15. Features Sol and Johnny with some sketches in the back.

== HELIOGENOMS 5.0 (SFW, 30p) - Japanese
- Neocities - 2003, August 15. Most of it is a fight between Sol and Johnny but there's a little bit of the Jellyfish Pirates, Testament, and a short sketch gallery in the back.

== HELIOGENOMS AWAY (SFW, 46p) - Japanese
- Neocities - 2003, December 28. Some Dizzy and Johnny stuff in the beginning with some I-No, followed by Johnny and Potemkin with a little May. There's a story with Anji and Axl too. Sol fighting a Gear comes up here and there. Raven and Slayer have a conversation. I-No kicks Ky's ass. A pretty eventful book overall. This doujinshi is unusual compared to the others both for its length and for having printed, versus hand-written, text. The art style is also a bit more focused than the other books. I wish I knew more about it...

HELIOGENOMS MISSING ISSUES //

== HELIOGENOMS VER. 2.0 (SFW, 36p)
- 2000, December 29? - Referred to in the back of HELIOGENOMS '98 as "HELIOGENOMS II." Release month/day may be a placeholder. Will be getting this one eventually (thanks Tillman!!).

== HELIOGENOMS VER. 3.0
- 2001? - Don't know, and couldn't find, anything about this book. Mentioned in the back of A•D so it may have come out summer 2001.

== HELIOGENOMS INSPIRE (SFW, 38)
- 2002, August 10 - Mentions Johnny/Sol on the cover like LIMITED. May have some smoochin scenes between Johnny and Sol do in that volume too.

== GUILTYGEAR.RU REHOSTS ==

Some of the earliest Guilty Gear English fan translations are still hosted only on GuiltyGear.ru. However, this domain is blocked in some countries or networks and cannot be accessed easily without a VPN, so I have rehosted them. You can view the original webpage these were hosted on here: guiltygear.ru/download.php. These files are currently presented as they are on GG.ru with minimal editing to fix formatting or file corruption issues. They are listed here in the order they were officially published.
