This thread is for all discussion of Totally Spies magazines and books. Made this thread partly so we can discuss the awesome, new scans taken by Mezoroth that have been added to the gallery. You can find them in them in the new Book and Magazine scans section of the gallery here. Discussion of future scans can also take place in this thread.

Mez's scans are from a collection of stories released in 2008 that I'm assuming originated in Totally Spies magazine. The really exciting thing is they appear to be completely original! I thought all of the magazine comics were taken from previous episodes, but these match no episode I've actually seen. Pretty cool!

Too bad I can't read them though. They look pretty funny. We do have a few French reading members though, so maybe they can help us understand what is going on.

Those are very cute. Needs to be translated, but they are entertaining.

It won't be easy though, there are a lot of idiioms that can't be easily translated from French to English.
And I'm really in a bad shape.
I'm overhere to usurp young thoughts so I can keep on going.
Seems weird, but you gals and guys notes do give me a bost




Life is too short to lose the joys of cartoons, comics, manga, music, ... The joys of having an open mind!

I took Spanish. If I knew at the time the French had all these cool comic books and cartoons, I would have certainly taken French instead. Although, I can't remember if my high school even had French. I just remember Spanish and German. lol

Are you sure you want to go to that much work to do a translation if you're not feeling well? I could send you the files as a zip. But I think just having you at the forum is cool enough imo.

I've translated some of these for you guys. I might be able to translate more in the future, but no promises.

Anyway, enjoy!

Too Hot

z03.png Wow!
z03.png I looooove it!
z01.png So you're into books now?
z03.png No, I'm talking about him—the lovely* clerk inside!
z01.png Oh! I feel better already—you had us worried, there.
z03.png He's so cute!

*: In French, Clover says, "the little clerk," but she isn't talking about the guy's height, obviously. In this context, the word "petit" means a thing or person is cute, lovely, etc. Please correct me if I'm wrong, but it seems the word "little" is only used with animals, babies or objects when expressing "cuteness" in English. A matter of usage rather than a rule, possibly. I can't remember reading or hearing "little guy" unless it was to point at the short height of the said guy. (It works fine for a kid, though.)

Gadget

z04.png Hey, losers!
z02.png Mandy...
z04.png I wanted to see how you had set up your VIP apartment. / It's not really tidy.
z01.png Good. Now that you've seen the living room...
z03.png ...nothing's keeping you here.
z04.png Wow! Your hair dryer is awesome. I want one like that!
z03.png Don't touch that... It's a gadget for spies!
z04.png Yeah, right... Pffft! As if!
z01.png We warned her.

Badminton

z02.png Here you go, Bradley!
z03.png Who's this "Bradley"?
z01.png Since when does she know this guy?
z03.png You think Alex is in love with him?
z02.png Ouch!
z01.png In any case, he caught her eye!* Ha ha ha!

*: "Il lui a tapé dans l'œil" is the French equivalent of "He caught her eye" (i.e., "she noticed him"), but, literally, it means "He hit her in the eye", which is exactly what happens here. A subtle difference from "catching her eye" (which works almost equally well), yet a noticeable one.

Thank you! Whenever you are up for it, please translate more. They should have made the English version of these...
