Thank you Ethereal Dragonz. It will be great if anybody have some The Super Famicom issues, I have about 6, I will try to scan and clean it when I have time, because some are dirty. I can help to scan some issues, but I take time because I only have a flat scan, and always need crop and give the right shape page by page. 😅

I already scan The Super Famicom 1992 No. 22 if anybody are interested, you can take it from my archive.

People have been posting guidebooks from Perfect Dark for a few years now, but it seems they avoided posting any of the magazine scans. Likely just because they're less timeless and less topical.

Btw, I dunno about the others you mentioned (although I assume they're the same), but the one you posted here is a free supplement to the Jan.89 issue of MSX Magazine.

Hey there, its been awhile. I've been too lazy/depressed to do anything other than hit a "like" button. I have a bunch of new #notmyscans to upload and I have a partially edited Xbox Famitsu that I should get around to finishing.

There is also a giant box of old Japanese magazines that I never got around to mailing to E-Day that has some pretty special stuff.

It's a real shame that Retromags has essentially become E-Day Mags, with all other scans on the net originating at the Internet Archive or OldGameMags.  It would be great if some of the people scanning Japanese mags came to us first so that we could have a few more exclusives that didn't come from E-Day.  Alas, the foreigners who scan Japanese mags can't be bothered to edit them, and the Japanese who scan mags are thoroughly useless when it comes to sharing them.  So I suppose we will have to continue to have to rely upon the Internet Archive for everything that isn't a mainstream American release.

At the very least, I ardently hope that every Japanese mag you upload to the Internet Archive causes at least one Japanese scan hoarder to shake their fist in rage at you for de-valuing their collection of scans to privately trade.😋

You can still mail them. If you send them I'll scan them 🙂

How would you feel about receiving 600 or so Japanese mags (I'm just guessing, really, but it's A LOT OF BOXES  full of thick mags)?  If anyone wants to front the 10 million dollars in shipping from Japan to Canada, I'd be happy to unload my Japanese mags to you if you'd scan them.  Well, no, that's a lie.  To be honest, even just boxing them up and taking them to the post office is more work than I feel like putting into it at this point.  Recent times have got me reevaluating my life and I've realized that it's asinine to spend one more second scanning magazines I don't care about.  I've got no more interest in video game mags than I do in mags about cross-stitching.  They just aren't my thing.  Too bad you can't just drive over and pick them up.  THAT I'd be fine with.  So whaddaya say?  Fly to Japan, take a train to my place, box em up and ship em back to yourself, and then fly home.  You could even do some sightseeing while you're here!😂😓

Famimaga seems to be one of those right to left magazines. I can't seem to find any coherent way to determine if a Japanese mag is right to left or left to right. Only by checking 2 page spreads.

It's actually very simple.  Just like all Japanese magazines or books, if the text is printed vertically, it will be read right to left.  If the text is horizontal, it will be read left to right.
