Bungeishunjū: Young Indy Japanese Adaptations

Here we go again!
Looking for the best cover images available for these fourteen books.
And are any of them translations of English adaptations?
The cover artwork is original, right?

Hmm, I hadn't heard of these. I'd also like to know if these are simply Japanese translations of English material or if they're original Japanese adaptations.

8. Emissary of the emperor / The secret messenger of emperor
9. Mysteries of the Orient / The oriental secret
10. Poetry of gun smoke / Poem of smoke
11. Secret War of Harry Frigg / Escape large maneuvers
12. Laugh Barcelona / Barcelona which you laugh

No, they appear to be original/fresh adaptions of the series. Still, it could say anything for all I know!!

I so want these!!! Is there any pics of the inside pages around? I'm really curious to see how they styled Young Indy in manga form! It would be great if there was an English translation version of these. I doubt there is though, considering the popularity of the series itself, but it would still be nice.

Most of the likenesses are very good, but there's definitely something wrong with Indy's eyes on this one:

Wow, those are (mostly) awesome. It looks like the artist was working off a combination of the Drew/Butkus poster art and screen caps from the episodes.

Stoo: more fodder for the "Vol 6/7/8" covers?

The artwork is certainly original and darned gorgeous, too. Worth having for just the covers alone. Nice discovery, Moedred!

These books are probably just text, Violet. If there are any illustrations inside, it's a good bet there are done traditionally and not in cartoon fashion. To see Young Indy in manga () style, follow the links in this thread: Indiana Jones Manga

I can't quite tell on some of them, but can anyone else figure out which episodes these adapt?

Stoo, can you make a quick list of what episodes were adapted by Random House and Bungeishunju? It may take a lot of digging to determine whether the authors worked off the English adaptions to any degree. I only feature non-English covers on the site if they have original artwork, so these definitely have a place, though I just don't know if this is a publisher like Hachette Livre which kept on going. This doesn't even get into unpublished material.

With the exceptions of 10 and 11, I think I can tell which episodes these adapt. Does anyone know which episodes those remaining two are adaptations of?

#10 must be the Somme episode because of the poetry connection with Siegfried Sassoon (Poetry of gun smoke / Poem of smoke)

#11 must be the Germany episode because of the Harry Frig/escape connection. (Funny that Google translated this one as, "Secret War of Harry Frigg", since that is a late '60s movie with Paul Newman playing an prison escape artist during WW2!)

There are 6 episodes which are unique to the Bungeishunju series:
- Curse of the Jackal - Part 2 (Mexico)
- London
- Vienna
- Peking
- Somme
- Barcelona

The remainder had been adapted by Random House with the exception of "Congo" (done by Fantail) and "Paris 1916" (done by Ballantine). Note: Random House adapted "Princeton 1916" but Bungeishunju did not.

That said, Junior Jones wrote that all the Japanese novels are fresh adaptations. How he knows this for sure, is a mystery!

Bungeishunju
01. Curse of the Jackal - Part 1 (Egypt)
02. Curse of the Jackal - Part 2 (Mexico)
03. Paris, 1916
04. London
05. Verdun
06. Vienna
07. Congo, (+ German East Africa?)
08. Austria
09. Peking
10. Somme
11. Germany
12. Barcelona
13. British East Africa
14. Petrograd

Random House
01. Curse of the Jackal Part 1 (Egypt)
02. Verdun
03. British East Africa
04. Austria
05. German East Africa

08. Germany

01. German East Africa + Congo
02. Verdun
03. Austria
04. Petrograd

They're not manga no. I only got the first one as a curiosity since I won't be learning Japanese any time soon but it has:
A map of Indy's travels
A map of the episode location
Picture of George Lucas with signature
The story illustrated with photos from the episode
Timeline
Episode credits
Biographies of the cast
Behind the scenes info/photos

There's a Japanese fansite somewhere that had all the cover images.

The covers of the books the thread is about.

I saw the site some time after Crystal Skull, it could have gone into the ether by now. Or I'm misremembering.

This series contains books from different original series by Random House (the Stine's book), Fantail (Nigel Robinson books) and Ballantine (James Luceno book) books as well as (according to the book details) original stories by Mike F. Thompson that have been first printed in this German series.

Nice additions, gkitti! I never know about those.

For the adaptation of Transylvania, the same title was used as the German TV episode, itself: "Der Fürst des Schreckens" ("The Prince of Terror").

An Indy Wiki table of all the adaptations would really help here. Sometimes a publication covers 2 broadcast hours, sometimes 2 publications cover 1. Only then will I be able to sort the original foreign adaptations from the translations of other adaptations...

Wow- these Japanese books have some awesome cover art! I appreciate finding threads like this with a lot of good information about foreign translations and adaptations of Indiana Jones books. Has the Indiana Jones wiki been updated with this information?
Thanks to all who have added to the posts here.
