  8. Play Online No.011 (April 1999)

    Once again, this is the most hardcore serious gaming mag to ever hit the shelves in Japan.  I'd wager not a single reader of this mag has any plastic figurines of half-naked anime girls on their shelf or so much as a single item of Nintendo-related memorabilia in their possession.  Nope, this mag targets adults, and not the kind that plays x-rated visual novels, either.
    On a side note, this issue was the glue-iest magazine I've ever seen.  There was glue all over the pages, so much so that even after debinding, I had to cut away portions of the page that had glue spilled all over them so it wouldn't damage my scanner and then reconstruct those missing bits in Photoshop.  The end result is just as pretty as always, never fear.

  9. Tech Gian Issue 019 (May 1998)

    ADULTS ONLY.  In addition to the previews of the bazillion and one adult games released every month in Japan, this issue's highlight might just be a feature article which covers the history of adult animated videos in Japan, discussing the highlights and providing what I assume is a thorough release list of videos released from 1984-1997.  You know, in case you've got an urge to "collect em all" and the only jigglypuffs you're interested aren't the Pokemon variety.
    I uploaded an ISO rip of the cover disc at the Internet Archive here: https://archive.org/details/techgian019may1998   Be aware that getting the demos to run on a modern computer is going to be troublesome, since they were designed for Win95.  But it's there nonetheless.

  10. Famitsu Issue 0669 (October 12, 2001)

    Scanned 6 months ago, I've finally gotten around to finishing the editing on this.  But what's an extra 6 months when you've been already been waiting since 2001 to get a copy of this issue? 😋  And remember, if you enjoy scans like this, be sure to click the "like" button .  It's such a small thing to do, but your scanners will greatly appreciate it, I assure you. (Just be sure do do it here at Retromags where we'll see it, not somewhere else like a new release post on facebook or twitter)

    OK, here it is, the first issue of Famitsu – a landmark issue if ever there was one. Please be aware however, that this IS NOT a scan of the original magazine (which is super-rare and costs hundreds of dollars) but rather is a scan of a reproduction. The gray borders around each page are new to the reproduction, allowing them to occasionally print some commentary on the contents of the page. Otherwise, the content of the magazine, including the ads, is identical to the original.

    However, the reproduction is printed at about half the physical dimensions of the original. As such, the quality of small detail suffers somewhat – a fault of the magazine’s printing, not of the scan. The copy I had also suffered from some water damage, which is visible in a few places. Even so, unless someone is willing to scan a copy of the original #1 (I won’t hold my breath), this is probably the best we’ll get, and I feel it’s an important look at the origins of the most influential video game magazine ever published.

    Finally…the cover. This is where most of the damage was evident. Warped by water damage and extremely faded, the cover was in such bad shape that I opted to repaint it (something I would normally never do with a scan). It wasn’t possible to repaint all of the tiny spaces between the Japanese characters, so the text is a little muddy, but on a whole I feel the cover is much more presentable than the unadulterated scan. For anyone who finds such digital manipulation an abomination (moreso than spot clone-stamping here and there, that is), I have included the original scan of the cover as the final page before the Retromags splash page.

    Anyway, this issue is a special exception. I hope you can look past its faults to appreciate the history! Expect all future Famitsu issues from me to be similar in quality to the previous two I released.

    Once again another singer/actor idol on the cover. Speaking of which, I use CDisplay to view cbr files, and I noticed that the cover looked oddly washed out when viewing the cbr, despite looking fine when simply viewing the jpg. It turns out that my CDisplay has "color balance on" set as the default option under "color balance" in the configuration menu. Turning it off displays the file correctly (although I noticed that having it turned off made some old scans of certain comics look rather dark, so I guess sometimes it offers an improvement to old/poor scans. Anyway, just wanted to mention that in case anyone else uses the same program.

    Well, I had intended on releasing these in the order I scanned them, but the first issue I scanned is on hold while the cut-off dates in the database wait to be fixed. So for now you get an issue from a couple years earlier - in this case the start of 1999 with the first of what promises to be many Gundam covers.

    As this is the first issue of D.P. to be put up, I'll say that my general impression is that in contrast to most English magazines, it devotes a large chunk of its coverage to in-depth strategy sections, as opposed to short previews of upcoming games (though of course it has those too.) There is an insane amount of information in these issues and were anyone inclined to actually read every word from cover to cover, it would probably take twice as long as an American mag of the same length.

    Although this is the second issue I'm uploading, it's actually the first one I scanned and edited. My reason for picking it first was twofold: first, it was the issue my hand closed on when I shut my eyes and picked one at random. Second, and more importantly, it was to be the first magazine I ever debound using a heat gun, and should I have accidentally lit the cover on fire and burnt it to ash while adjusting to the learning process, I could think of no greater candidate for immolation than a cover featuring Square's masterpiece of mediocrity, The Bouncer. Enjoy.

    Another Japanese magazine, another Gundam cover. These things can't be helped - it's like expecting something other than a car on the cover of a Car & Driver magazine. Which coincidentally might not have been a bad choice, as there's a cover story on Gran Turismo 2. Plus, lots of RPG strategy with sections on Parasite Eve 2, Tokimeki Memorial 2, Chrono Cross, Growlanser, Valkyrie Profile, and Little Princess: Marl Ōkoku no Ningyō Hime 2 (the sequel to Nippon Ichi's Rhapsody.)

    This issue had a hell of a lot of glue that got everywhere during de-binding, so cleaning it up took longer than usual, but I think it turned out all right in the end. Enjoy!

    A couple of warnings: page 127 has a somewhat terrifying bit of defacement using whiteout. Also, the bottom 1/4 of the page that makes up pages 95 and 96 had been cut out, so I filled it with white space to keep the pages the same dimensions as everything else. Otherwise the issue was in great shape. Enjoy!
