Hey guys. The recent post I had on the previous page was getting quite bloated with links, so I'm going to start putting them here. I recently finished the two, untranslated Bakugaiden games. It was challenging in some areas but with the help of Plas, Ragey, Vent and the community, I have succeeded. Here's some image packs to celebrate the occasion.
Thanks to someone sharing a GIF on Twitter (I can't remember who for the life of me) but I learned of an anime called Bug-tte Honey. Basically, some kids get sucked into their Adventure Island video game and wackiness ensues. They meet Master Higgins and the whole shabang.
Here's a taste!
Now as you can imagine, being Hudson and all, Bomberman makes an appearance several times. There are even many instances of sound effects and jingles being used from Bomberman for NES. The pack I'm including below features all physical cameos as well as a few of the sound effect moments.
Please note that I skimmed this series and did not watch it entirely so if anyone finds anything I missed then please feel free to share. Someone was kind enough to rip the entire show from DVDs and upload them to dailymotion. One or two episodes are missing, presumably due to copyright takedowns, and the show has no English subtitles, but it's fun to gloss over for the heck of it.
This show seems cute. I think it's worth noting that it came out when the latest Bomberman was just the NES one with little "official" art direction to go by, so that probably explains some of Bomberman's bizarre design here (though it certainly doesn't explain the creepy face!). Still, there's something weird about seeing such a bootleggy version of a popular character appear at such an early stage in an official production!
The secret stages and secret items are intriguing, and I'd like to know more...
Legato, when you get the chance, can you try to access at least the first secret stage in Bomberman N-gage?
And if you do, please tell (or show) us what its like.
The Manual says that the first one can be accessed by beating the first boss without placing a single bomb.
