  2. Famitsu Issue 0084 (September 29, 1989)

    This is the last issue of Famitsu I have from the 80s.  Though I normally work with Japanese mags, I just scanned a USA mag from the same year (1989) and it's shocking the difference in quality of the paper stock used.  Japanese mags from the 80s - thick and white to slightly off-white paper.  USA mags - tissue-paper thin and yellowed/browned with age as all get-out.  (Nintendo Power perhaps being the exception - that mag had some $$$ poured into it, I guess.)

  6. Comptiq No.255 (March 2003)

    The CD-ROM included with this issue can be downloaded HERE.
    The manga section at the back is read R-L, so your CBR reader must be set to Japanese/manga mode during that section in order for facing pages to be oriented correctly.

  7. Comptiq No.256 (April 2003)

    The CD-ROM included with this issue can be downloaded HERE.
    The manga section is read from R-L, so your CBR reader must be set to Japanese/manga mode during that section in order for facing pages to be oriented correctly.
    Included at the very end of the archive is a scan of this issue's supplement - a "shitajiki" (下敷き).  These are basically hard sheets of plastic that people put under paper when they're writing to prevent impressions from forming on the next page of paper underneath.  No Japanese schoolchild will be without one.

  12. Gekkan PC Engine Issue 055 (July 1993)

    Included 2 supplements which can be downloaded here:
    Street Fighter II - Ougi no Shou
    Far East of Eden (Tengai Makyou): Fuun Kabukiden - Nesshou Strategy Guide
     
    Years ago someone PMed me here and asked if they could pay me to buy this mag and another from a used book website in Japan and scan them.  They were interested in the coverage of Castlevania: Rondo of Blood that featured in both.  I told them no, I didn't need any more mags to scan.
    And then for some reason, I bought them both anyway, with my own money, and scanned them.  This is the first of the two.  If that person who wanted them hasn't already gotten them from where I first uploaded them, I hope they're still around to see this (I don't remember their name).

  17. Family Computer Magazine Issue 087 (September 22, 1989)

    This entire magazine is read right-to-left.  Your CBR reader must be set to Japanese/manga mode in order for facing pages to be oriented correctly.
    Famimaga never had the most eye-grabbing covers, in my opinion, and if you can't read Japanese, you'd be hard-pressed to guess what was being covered by looking at the cover.  Here are some of the main games featured inside:
    Final Fantasy III
    Dragon Quest IV
    Dragonball 3
    Ys II
    Double Dragon II
    Square's Tom Sawyer (so racist)
    U.S. Championship V'Ball
    Abadox
    Tashiro Masashi Princess ga Ippai (starring a real-life convicted pervert, fined for voyeurism and jailed for drug use)
    Twinbee 3

  23. GameSide Vol.01 (August 2006)

    This mag is printed at a smaller size than a typical A4 magazine.  It's been a couple of years since I tossed it out, so I'm not 100% positive, but I believe it's printed at A5 size, half the size of a normal mag.

  24. Comptiq No.258 (June 2003)

    While the majority of the magazine is read L-R, the manga section is read R-L, so your CBR reader must be set to Japanese/Manga mode while viewing this section if also viewing 2 pages at a time, in order for the facing pages to be oriented correctly.  If viewing in single-page mode, no adjustments are necessary.
    The included demo disc can be downloaded HERE.
    *This issue had 4 two-sided fold-out posters in a row with an image on one side and articles on the other. It was necessary to keep them in place within the archive rather than move them to the end, and some were horizontal while others were vertically oriented.  However, they have been edited in such a way that your viewing experience should not be hampered regardless of whether your CBR reader is in single or double-page viewing mode.
