Ooh, I used to like it very much when I was a kid. I eventually moved to a much smaller town and was unable to find the manga in the local bookseller. I think I was around book 11 or something. Cheers for translating this !

Really, I can’t thank you enough. You brought back one of the loveliest series of anime of my childhood, I saw the TV Series in cable on my country when I was small…but never saw the ending, because it was never finished.
This gives me new hope that maybe I can find out if Kurt can actually finish his journey.

Thank you for bringing us to fans this great Manga, as no editorial “Decent” has noticed the great work of Shinji Wada, it is reassuring that at least one group of translators like you make the effort to keep alive the work of this author. Thank you and see if it is possible that we can someday, if not the Anime, at least The Manga complete.

Thank you for showing us the adventure of this prince and the battle between Medusa and the Prince because it is not adapted in Anime. Good Luck and I hope that we can read the mangas completely.

Poor Kurt! Thank you for scanlating this series. It’s been a while since I’ve read it (the books are out of print in my country). I hope you will continue to scanlate (though there are a lot of volumes!)

Thank you for sharing. I’m addicted that I must drop by this page every week :D.
It’s long time ago when I read this manga in Thailand T^T, and I really miss it so badly (Sad that I could not bring them along my journey *sob*)
I cannot find the English version from where I live now, fortunately you’ve picked it up!

Love this project so much.I read this series and was instantly hooked by the great storytelling and its interesting characters.it’s a very good manga indeed,keep it up!and I’m so thankful that Wingtip is doing such a great job of translating it!

Comment by hoifi ishii — January 22, 2011 @ 10:44 am

This is an amazing manga!!!The story is incredible in every way imaginable.The art is easily some of the best I’ve ever seen in a manga. The level of detail in the drawings is absolutely insane, everything looks so good. Characters all look great and have their own style and flavor. Faces are never recycled and even background characters all have a distinct look from each other.There is no manga out there that has captivated me like Pygmalio, it has no equal. I don’t even need to read every manga in existence to tell you that. You could take it as fanboy rambling, but I’m not kidding you when I say Pygmalio is a masterpiece in every sense of the word. If you have the time to read this review, than you sure as hell have enough time to open a new tab and read the first few chapters of Pygmalio. You won’t regret it


Comment by CBlitz221 — March 19, 2011 @ 8:28 pm

This mangas has brought out a new style of epic action,it’s a kind of manga that you can pick up and get lot in i mean the beginning is random and you alreaydy want to know whats going on a perfect hook in every chapter.The art is clear, you can differentiate which is who and the details is very praiseable. this manga leave you with a feeling (i need to get more! next volume please!) without being dragging.I love this manga! So tough and full of adventure

One brilliant story created by the famed mangaka WADA Shinji, who’s various works have comprised themes of elegance, beauty, and emotion. I don’t believe words can summize just how magnificent and wonderful this artistic piece actually is. There was literally nothing wasted in the emotional impact delivered by the characters and their progressive development throughout the story.
The emotional impact delivered by this piece was both beautiful as well as astonishing. My eyes simply could not hold back the tears, I genuinely felt for each and every character. This story was absolutely amazing and I’ll always cherish this relatively short read that was filled with a certain emotional value, in conjunction with a mature conveyance of intellect and growth.

Its hard to find the words that accurately express just how wonderfully magnificent Pygmalio actually is. The story in its entirety was astoundingly articulate, ravishingly studious, and enigmatically captivating. WADA Shinji conveys pure artistic endearment in brilliant fashion throughout this fabulous publication.

Prince Kurt as a character holds a genuine place in my heart,he quickly became one of the most endearing and mysterious characters ever set in a short serialization. One important aspect to note about this piece is the way WADA Shinji brilliantly illustrated the masterpiece that is Pygmalio. I don’t think I could ever properly convey my feelings on just how magnificent this working piece of fiction was in its entirety.
Rating: 8/10

I’ve been in a slump. Recently every manga/manhwa/manhua that I have clicked on has been thoroughly disappointing. Resulting in a poor plot and sloppy characters, so I wasn’t expecting much from this little piece. Boy, didn’t I get a surprise!

The story drew me in from the get-go, capturing my attention and refusing to let my mind wander off topic. It really is a little masterpiece. The emotions that pour forth, clutch tightly to your conscience and you’re unable to stop the tears from free falling. The characters are so believably realistic that you feel as though you know them personally. Not only that, but the story makes you ask questions, even question yourself and your beliefs. To me, this was a beautiful story that I am truly grateful for stumbling upon

There’s only one way to put this series and that’s simply amazing. The series Pygmalio is one of those rare gems that truly stimulate the human mind and lets it’s audience in on the real nature of life.The art is actually pretty polished as well, the inking clean and deliberate, and the panels arranged simply but effectively.I can’t really find much to say about this manga, simply because it’s so good and interesting and I probably wouldn’t be able to do it much justice.It’s truly a masterpiece in my eyes.It’s highly recommendable and I can’t even say it enough you HAVE to check this manga out

Comment by daimira saintcrossralphy — July 30, 2011 @ 6:41 pm

I love you and you are my hero! I’ve been looking for this all over the place and to find you guys translating it is a dream come true! I used to watch the animated version with my family when i was a kid and it gives me a lot of good memories :D I hope you will be able finish this (since i know how hard it probably is to find the RAWs for this!)

Looking forward to more and keep up the great work!!

PS. i’m thinking of working on the subtitles for the anime (although my japanese isn’t great, i couldn’t find any that is subbed - though there were french/italian dubbed versions =.=)


Comment by Clara — January 1, 2012 @ 9:42 pm

Hello,
I wanted to thank for translanting Pygmalio, I used to like the anime when I was a kid and I’m even more amazed by the manga when reading it today. I have almost no hope that this will be reedited someday, and is really thankful that you decided to scanlate it. Pygmalio is one my favourite manga ever…


Comment by DTH — May 25, 2012 @ 11:14 pm

i really love this manga since about elementary school.
glad to see this manga on active project.

thanks guys.


Comment by corotalas — August 29, 2012 @ 4:06 am

I heard that the author of this book passed away. Did he have chance to finish this book?

I can’t tell you how much I love this book. I read it the first time 14 years ago. It has never been re-published in Vietnam, but the story still lingers in my head. Thank you your team very much for all your great work :)

Comment by Hang Nguyen — March 1, 2013 @ 6:22 pm

He finished it long time ago. He actually wrote a few manga after this one. But Wada-sensei will be missed, nonetheless.

Comment by tsubasa — March 4, 2013 @ 9:11 am

The premise of the story is intriguing and rather refreshing. The story has a certain draw to it that kept me reading chapter after chapter. The quest itself, the stories you live through, are greater treasure.

Overall, I give this manga a 10/10. Even though it’s not finished, I can’t wait to continue on!


Comment by rai — November 1, 2014 @ 4:16 pm

Thank you for your amazing work. I have been in love with this manga since I was 12. 18 years have passed but the love still unchanged :) My wishes now are to finish reading this manga besides One Piece, haha. My husband is excellent in Japanese but he is not a very good English user. Haiz, if his English were better, I would force him to join your team for sure :))


Comment by Lunar — November 29, 2015 @ 12:04 am

I almost couldn’t believe it when I reached the last chapter that it wasn’t even fully translated yet. I thought the site just didn’t have all the chapters.
Still pretty unbelieveable though. This manga is GOLD…
