It took me a very long time, but I was finally able to dig up scans of every page for the Den-Geki Pikachu manga (The Electric Tale of Pikachu in English). Though I have the first two volumes in English already, I'm unable to read the last chapter of volume three and all of volume four.

I was hoping that if anyone here knew Japanese, and had done translation work, would be willing to take the scans and make a faithful translation over to English. It would help me out a lot, letting me finally finish the series, as well as make it that much easier for the masses to get acquainted to a great manga otherwise forgotten.

If anyone is interested, let me know. =)

I always want to read the Electric Tales of Pikachu. I really do not know anyone who reads Japanese, but if no one is avaliable may be you could used the English scans and post them instead, however I heard that some of the comic strips had been omitted in the English version.

That's my problem. I've scoured the Internet but haven't been able to find a complete of scans of the English translation, but I have every page in the original Japanese. I need it translated into English to make up for the missing pages.

Maybe you could gain excess to Japanese characters and insert the character from the speech bubbles in the strips into an internet translator such as the google translator or babelfish though I will have to say that the internet translators will not produce a perfect translation and you will probably have you figure out what it is saying. Other suggestion ou could also find a way to get in touch with a Japanese interpreter somehow. That is all the advice I can offer you.
