I don't remember actually having done this before, but it was just brought up, so I'm doing it. Here's the story for Panic Bomber for the PCE, the one that features Golem and Pretty Bomber and that weird mysterious doctor guy at the end. I'll probably scan the manual some day if nobody else does it first.

[Collapse] Japanese
平和のために戦え、ボンバーマン!!

今からほんの少し未来。銀河の片隅にある豊かな自然に恵まれた平和な星・ノギスースで、人々はおだやかに暮らしていました。しかしある日当然、魔王バグラーの手下である魔物たちがこの星を荒し回るようになりました。バグラーはこの星で平和に暮らすボンバーマンに仕返しをするために、空に浮かぶ城に乗ってやってきたのです。ボンバーマンはノギスースの平和を取り戻すため、北の山脈の上に浮かぶ浮遊城へと向かって、再び冒険の旅に出ることになりました。

[Collapse] English
Battle for Peace, Bomberman!!

It is the near future. In the corner of the galaxy lies Nogisūsu Star, naturally blessed with peace, where everybody lives quietly. But one day, of course, monster underlings of the devil king Bagura began laying waste to the star. In order to get revenge on Bomberman for living peacefully on this star, Bagura boarded a floating castle in the sky. To restore peace to Nogisūsu Star, Bomberman must once again embark on an adventurous journey, heading toward the floating castle suspended above the northern mountains.

Last night I was on Ragey's page, looking for links to the old Bomberman sites to study their general designs and such. One thing led to another and I came across not only the Super Bomberman 4 official website, but this page in particular, which contains otherwise unseen information on the Bomber Shitennou and Great Bomber.

So I translated it. I have no idea how canon this is as it appears nowhere in the other documentation (manual, guidebook) but here it is:

Quote:
Who are the Bomber Shitennou led by the mysterious Bomberman!?

Having finished a fun trip, a group of Bombermen are heading back home on a passenger shuttle... 4 light balls quickly approach the shuttle. Shaking violently, the shuttle is sucked up into a black hole and finally explodes. With their friends scattered throughout time, Shirobon and Kurobon wake up in primitive times...  Last time, Bomberman had defeated and driven away Professor Bagura. He has returned, having changed into an electronic cyberbrain mecha. The Bomber Shitennou are a Bomberman assassination force created for the sole purpose of obliterating Bomberman. Accounting for the flaws in the previous 5 Fiendish Bombers, their weapons have been strengthened, their body armour has been heavily fortified, and a Bagura Chip has been embedded in their thought patterns.

It's pretty interesting, and it at least gives an explanation as to who and what they were.

I do like the idea of explicitly improving on the flaws of the previous bad bombers, but I'm not sure giving Hammer Bomber just one eye wasn't more of a lateral move...

Hahah, yeah, I wonder what was up with that. It always struck me as an odd design choice, though I suppose it made him look really distinct at the time, and that's something the Shitennou designs do well.

Also, hi Gomess! It's been a while! :veryhappy:

Oh, don't get me wrong, I love Hammer Bomber's design! My fave in that game by miles.

And yes, how do! I feel like Bomberboard moves at a different rate in time than other forums and social media sites I use. I'll post maybe twice a year but it never feels like I've really "been gone"... :happy: 

Although I have been thinking lately I could/should help out more in this thread, as I translate quite a lot of Japanese for work and certainly wouldn't mind doing a bit for fun. So, if there's any manuals, sites or whatnot that folk are curious about or already translating and just need a hand.... 私に任せてくださいー!

That would be awesome!

Pretty much every big thing that is available online can be found through Ragey's site and Imgur account, if you ever feel like taking a look.

I'm trying to slowly mosey my way through the series, collecting info and citing sources, and putting up articles on a new, closed wiki. But, as I can't dedicate nearly as much time as I could back when I was at university, it's a really slow process.

That's interesting that he designed them to be Shiro specific killing machines. The Bagura chip bit is intriguing as well.

I translated this a while back for Steamy Jimmy's show, but I forgot to post the full translation afterward. This is the story manga for the Super Bomberman 2 Hudson Official Guidebook. If you'd like to read along (and it will make more sense if you do), you can find it here.

Page 6

[Panel 1]
SFX: ZZZZZUM!

A suspicious space ship draws near the Earth, unnoticed...
What on earth is about to happen to Bomberman...!?

[Panel 2]

Only 1 hour until arrival on Earth...

PLASMA: Huhhuhu, so this is Earth......

[Panel 3]
SFX: SHINE!

PLASMA: Our brother, Bomberman, lives here!

Page 7

[Panel 1]
SFX: SHOCK!

BOMBERMAN: Wh, whaaaat!! You're my siblings!?

[Panel 2]
(Sign: Bomberman)

(Door: It says "oshirori okotowari". "Okotowari" means "refuse"; phrases including "okotowari" are put on doors to basically indicate that they refuse solicitors, etc. I don't know what "oshirori" is or if it's even complete.)

That can't be! Such talk, after all this time!

[Panel 3]
(Shelf: I think it says "Danger Nitroglycerin", with the last half of "Nitroglycerin" being off-screen)

(Bag Magnet is holding: Present)

PRETTY: It's true, big brother. Both you and we are cyborgs created by aliens.

BRAIN: You are the prototype, so to speak, of the Bomber Cyborg... Because of a memory circuit failure, you forgot.

PLASMA: Brother!! Together we will return to our original creator!!

(Captions)
Golem Bomber - Giant of unrivaled physical strength

Brain Bomber - The genius scientist who developed the remote control bomb

Pretty Bomber - The lone woman of the 5, she uses heart-type bombs

Plasma Bomber - The leader of the 5, master of bomb throwing

Magnet Bomber - Uses magnet bombs

[Panel 4]
SFX: ["heta"; Onomatopoeia for collapsing in despair]

...Th, this is so...

[Panel 5]
Not a chance, I love Earth!

(Yellow background text)
TN: This is weird. It looks like it's saying "Munku no Sakebi!!", "Munch's Scream!!", basically drawing a comparison to Edvard Munch's "The Scream" painting, but it's spelled like "Munku no Rokebi!!" and I don't know why.

(Black background text)
but stolen (TN: Referring to how the pose was stolen from the aforementioned painting)

SFX: QWAK!!

PLASMA: Sorry, there's no use arguing about it!!

BOMBERMAN: Mmmngh... Th, this place?

PRETTY: Big brother, what happens next?

[Panel 4]
PLASMA: Um, we'll take him to the boss's place, subject him to mind control with the brainwashing machine... After that, I guess we'll withdraw the necessary information on Earth from his memory.

[Panel 5]
PRETTY: Give us the info we need so we can conquer Earth!

BOMBERMAN: Wha, what!!
Conquer Earth!?

PRETTY: Oh, big brother! You came to!

[Panel 3]

BOMBERMAN: I'm gradually remembering things... my incredibly gorgeous little sister~

PRETTY: Ohh, that's good ♥

[Panel 4]

BOMBERMAN: I think I could remember more if I got some kind of intense shock...

I know!! What about a wake-up kiss? [TN: literally "good morning kiss"]

SFX: Waving

PRETTY: Ehhhh!? No wayyy!

MAGNET: Lewd big brother...

[Panel 5]

SFX: Deheheh

BOMBERMAN: Look, I bet if I got a kiss from a beautiful forest maiden like you, I'd surely regain my memories.

PRETTY: Well, I guess it can't be helped...

[Panel 6]

PRETTY: Well! Just a kiss on the forehead!

SFX: CLICK!

BOMBERMAN: (grin)

[Panel 7]

BOMBERMAN: Wahahaha!! Successful escape!!

SFX: JUMP!

PRETTY: Aaaan! Stupid big brother! You trampled on this girl's feelings!

BOMBERMAN: Even if we are Bomberman siblings, no matter what!!
You lost, little brother!* Repent and abandon your plans for taking over the Earth!

*(Odd note: furigana - small text - above the word "little brother" says "Magnet Bomber" instead of pronouncing the word)

[Panel 3]

MAGNET: C... crap... But we have an ace up our sleeve that you don't...

SFX: Stagger!

SFX: BOKO!

MAGNET: Fussy!! It's too late pull that "big brother" routine now!

SFX: BLAM!

[Panel 3]

BOMBERMAN: Alright, if that's how you wanna be, I'll tell mom about the dirty books you've been keeping above the ceiling!!

MAGNET: Huh!?
...(Apprehension on reflex)

Page 12

[Panel 1]

BOMBERMAN: ...Also, found your weak point! BOOM!

SFX: BOOOOMB

MAGNET: Uwaaaah!! Cheating big brother!!

[Panel 2]

BOMBERMAN: It's sad, but it can't be helped... I have to defend the Earth......

TEXT: Nanmandabu... (TN: a Buddhist prayer)

FIENDISH BOMBERS: Urrghhh... Youuuu ...

So out of all the manuals scanned and shared on here, which ones do we still need to add to our master list? I assume we must be getting close to having all the games by now.
