We actually use the word "teras" in every day life. It's a literal translation to the word Monster. I don't know why they did change it since its simply called Monster in the Japanese translation

Oh, I see. Indeed, why tamper with the author's intent like that? He already included all the references to Greek mythology that he wanted to. Adding random Greek words on top of that, like they're doing, just comes across as a pointless gimmick. :miura:

Although late, im pretty sure by now that also this Cover of the Gigantomakhia Volume was digitally colored. I think it's nice to know around what time Miura started to color digitally.

Yes, there is no doubt that it's digital when looked up close.

Offline nightmare.

I've been wanting to read this for a while now but kept forgetting the name. I'll probably get to it soon.  :sad:

Definitely worth checking out for Miura fans. I plan to roll it into one of our re-reads for the podcast once we hit November (5th anniversary of its release).

Definitely a better cover.

It was always the best choice. Puzzling they went with something else in Japan... Bet some exec just said "Delos needs to be on it!".

In this series, are there any glaring translation errors on darkhorse's part?  Or is it mostly more superficial errors/uneeded changes like "Giganto" and "Terata"?
