The first story appeared in serial translation in issues #1 - 3, 5, and 7 - 9 of Kappa, an Italian magazine for anime and manga fans, in 1992-93

 

 

The same story was also translated into Chinese and appeared in serial form in A(nime) Club magazine, published in Hong Kong(?), beginning with issue #22 (25 August 1987)

Most of the illustrations used, such as this one for the header of the first installment, were taken from Japanese anime magazine sources, having been done by Dokite Tsukasa or other members of the Sunrise production staff

A few, however, were done by another, unsigned artist (the Angels appear throughout in their Classic anime version, rather than Yasuhiko's rendition for the novels)
