Volume 3 scans

Got my copy of volume 3 in the mail today. I scanned every page with a Nordic nation on it. :3



The special edition pics are wonderful!


Translation: Chapter 2 At long last! Nordic 5 Assembled
Introducing the Nordic 5's medieval appearance





Sweden: When drawing him, I make sure to get pumped up before drawing him. The format of his face is the same as Germany, but I imagine that if you hit his head it seems harder than Germany's.


Denmark: Poking England, using Russia as a shield, he's quite the active young man. I feel like his personality will turn out to be the complete opposite of his outward appearance.



Norway: I feel like the clothing from this period is whimsical. Maces seem really plain, but I think if they're actually used, it's the most, or second most worrisome weapon.


Mr. Puffin: The mysterious puffin that's often found with Iceland. The difference between him and other puffins is his black belly and the ribbon he wears. He looks cute, but his personality and speech is that of a Mafioso.

Iceland: Doesn't want to speak too much




Revealing the original designs! & Reminiscing!

Denmark: I had an image for him to be tough. It was decided with this picture that he would have a big mouth and drooping eyes


Norway: His hair curl is floating. I like Norway's legends about fairies so he became a mystical character





Now go buy this book, and make sure you get the special edition for the mini-Nordics pics.

There was a lot of manga too (mostly reprinted from the webcomics), so I zipped up all files (including the above illustrations) for an easy download. All pics are in their original scan size, if anyone wants to translate/colour/whatever.

http://www.mediafire.com/?mmyz55hjovm (30mb, zip)

Included in the file:
The 9 illustrations above in bigger sizes
New (?) character profiles for Sweden and Finland
Map with the characters on it
The "Nordics make a doll" manga. (Nothing changed?)
The "Call me Oniichan" manga. (Nothing changed?)
The "Finland is living with Russia now" manga. Redrawn. OMG SCARY SWEDEN! D:
The "Iceland is for sale" manga. (Nothing changed?)
The first page of a story featuring Denmark. (New.)
The "Polish-Swedish wars" manga. (Nothing changed?)
Bonus illustration of Finland?

Anyways. Go ahead and use these pics for whatever you want, no need to credit me for scanning.


Edit: Now with some translations, thanks to a kind anon over at aphanon_meme LOL "Mr Puffin" the mafioso.

Thankyouthankyouthankyou! I'd always wanted a compilation of the Nordics strips ♥
YESSSSSSSS so much Nordic goodness C:
Also my thoughts on the original design for Norway: he looks younger, somewhat softer and his haircut is sort of dorky but geez how cute :'D

Lovely, thank you so much! You are the bees' knees, truly.

I've always imagined that Sweden's glasses represented Gotland, and given Sweden's lack-of in the picture, as well as the fact that Gotland was formally labeled Swedish land in the mid 17th century, maybe it holds water. PARTY.

Thanks for the scans, Sea. Kind of tempted to do some colouring now, haa...

And thanks for the strip-scans, too. I don't think they were included in the main comm's .zip (and I can see why, but still, it's nice to have everything.)

Wow, they are gorgeous. Thank you!
That line about Denmark sounds kind of suspicious though. I'll brace myself for some Yandermark, just in case.
