Loving the stock Windows font on the cartridge, too.

This wouldn't even be a problem if they sold it as a reproduction cart that was playable on NTSC-U systems. There's a big market for that, anyway. But they seem to know so little about the game. What was the motivation here? Were they trying to nail some sucker who thought they were getting some Rare Goods?

I actually hope that the guy who bought the game is someone who's never heard of it before and gets enlightened...but knowing Umihara's international fanbase, it was probably someone on this forum. Whover the guy is, he's lucky for getting such a good deal.

Yeah, they definitely should've said it was a reproduction cart.

Featuring a boy.  Amazing.

Yeah... it gets worse. Looks like they nabbed the description from IGN. Which was then reiterated for the description of Shun (which is referred to as a "remake"...). And then re-reiterated for the description of Shun ~Second Edition~ (which is referred to as a sequel to Shun. Enough said.) And the same description was used for Kanzenban, which basically means Yumi's Odd Odyssey is the only game whose description wasn't horribly butchered.

The sad thing is, I've seen Umihara mistaken as a boy before, and from a completely different source. There was a minor edit war between a person called "Tempest Tales" and... everyone else, really, where Tempest Tales seemed to be under the impression that Umihara was a boy and everyone else was wrong. But, you know, obscure foreign game series, not much English-language information out there... mistakes happen, right? Except that Tempest Tales is Japanese...

It's kind of baffling that Umihara would be mistaken for male so often despite her giant boobs. The seller should've at least been clued-in when they 'shopped together that cartridge art at the very least. I can only assume it's either the short hair (which, from my own experience drawing characters, somehow takes precedence over boobs for many people), or from only seeing her in-game sprites.

EDIT: Okay, I actually forgot about Umihara Kawase Portable's existence entirely (probably for the best...), but anyway, it's listed here, under the title "Yumi's Odd Odyssey", which makes sense as it was nearly localized under that title. It's also listed as an alternate release of the first game... not Shun......

I wonder if IGN would correct that.  I realise they probably wouldn't care much since the games are old and were never released outside of Japan, but they should still try not to be so horribly wrong.

Does anyone know how I could go about scanning a B2-sized poster which is way too big for the scanner I have, so I could have a decent image to put with the page I'd put up on the site?

No reason in particular.

Maybe I should take a photo of it.

Large format scanning services exist, but it's hard to find any definite prices on it since they don't seem to charge a flat rate, so I dunno there. Scanning the poster in parts and stitching them together might be an option, though that'd be pretty finicky.

I forgot to post yesterday that I'm bidding on a Chirari promo poster which has popped up on Yahoo Auctions.

Which reminds me, I forgot to put a page up for that Shun promo poster.  I'm way behind on putting the DenSen page up, too.

But I just bought one of these posters a few days ago!  Aw, I should have waited.

Well, there's the YAJ link in case anyone else is interested.  Hopefully one day someone puts the other poster up for sale by itself.

And another set!

Edit: on further research it's one double-sided poster.  Whoops!  Here's another one.

Kind of interesting to see a custom case that uses fanart.  At least more interesting than this one:

which just reuses the Shun cover art.

I don't suppose anyone feels like yelling at eBay about the 'featuring a boy' / '3D hunting' stuff and seeing if they care at all?  Or will we just let them keep being wrong?

My word, KawaseFan, that Umi-chan swag!

I've been slowly trying to acquire what I can, and it's good to know that I've got a basis I can work off of for what I need to collect. 

So far, I've got the games.  Now, it's just a matter of tracking down the art materials, soundtracks, strategy guides and whatever else.  However, it seems those TECH Playstation discs are extremely rare and by far the most challenging to locate.

And yeah, when I was trawling YJA back in the day looking for UK-related stuff the TECH discs seemed to be impossible to find. I guess I would've paid a decent sum for them (on top of the usual scalping from the middleman) but I don't remember them ever coming up.

Not going to lie, that does scare me.  If, however long ago that may of been, they were difficult to find then I can only imagine that they're just as hard if not harder to find now.  Perhaps I'll have to settle for the fact that I won't be able to get my hands on them unless some rare opportunity.

Nonetheless, I am really glad to know that though.  Now I can work around that.

Good hunting! On the plus side, since they're magazine demos, I guess there's always a chance you'll find a bundle for next to nothing. Hope you have better luck than I did, anyway.

KawaseFan, what are the two CDs in the top right of your swag photo? And do you have the Hyutec 31 Omake doujin CD?

The top one is a CD-ROM that originally came with volume 1 of Sony Magazines' Memory Card Data Book, which includes some Umihara Kawase Shun replay data.

The one below is issue 2 of the CD-ROM magazine PlayPlayPLUS, which includes a demo video of DenSen, which, for anyone interested in seeing it, has been uploaded to YouTube by texh.

No, I don't have the Hyutec 31 Omake CD, I did see it available once on suruga-ya but from memory it wasn't available for long.

Also spotted this on ebay:

Alc : I think that's going to be the toughest part, is finding a combination pack.  Outside of a complete listing like what KawaseFan was able to acquire, I think it's going to be tough hunting.  Especially since you had already tried prior to find it with no success.

However, If I see anything in general I'll be sure to post here so that anyone has a fair chance. That way, at least someone will have a chance to get it : )

I bought this a little while ago and forgot about it.  Anyway, it arrived on Monday.  The top part has curved down slightly over the years, so I held it up for the attached photo.

I'm currently bidding on a Chirari leaflet and Umihara Kawase Portable phone card.  I'm not really sure why I bid on the leaflet, it was probably pointless, but it won't cost much, so not a huge deal.

Speaking of promotional posters, here's one for Kanzenban if anyone is interested.  This is the second one of this poster that this seller has listed, and... I'll post a photo of the first one when it arrives.

There are a few of the Sayonara+ Sofmap bonus phone cards up at the moment, and, again, also a Kanzenban one.

Here is another Sayonara+ poster if anyone is interested.

There are these two listings on eBay for the Shun Gamest phone card - same item, just different listings targeting the US and Europe.  Pretty pricey either way, though, I have to say.

Also, the auction ended without a bid, but can anyone explain to me why a seller would think a reproduction cart is worth a starting bid of US$55?

I just happened to see it at that time because I was going through my bookmarks, trying to clear out some old ones, and this search was one of them.  Of course, there are no results left there now, but if you turn on the display of out-of-stock items, you can see them listed (as well as the 1997/10 TECH PS which isn't relevant to us as far as I know, and some completely irrelevant results at the bottom), so I think it's worth keeping an eye on that search, just in case they are in stock again one day.

Great time for those in the Western side of the world, a seller looks to be putting his entire Umihara Kawase game collection up and it looks to be in surprisingly good condition.

http://www.ebay.com/sch/crimsoncy/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=1&_ipg=&_from= (I figured the store page would be easier, since I was looking for text links for each game but I haven't used this format in forever and couldn't find a quick way : X)

I normally check what they've got for sale from time to time, since they seem to be one of the few sellers on the Western side of the world that isn't a business and this guy seems to collect the most random things when I noticed that he's got everything Umi-chan up on there.  It looks to also include the CDJapan release of Sayonara Umihara Kawase on Vita with the bonus fig + button.  Sadly, none of those rare discs, but a great way to get all the official releases.

I've bought from them before and found their pricing to be fair, shipping to be rather good (though they also live in the same state that I do) and a pleasure to work with. 

Heads up to anyone who's looking to get in on it from the West!

Anyone think they'll ever get rid of Portable, though?

I'm curious to see if they will as well.  They're selling it pretty cheap and offering free shipping, and it's not as if they're hiding the fact that it's suppose to be a bad game either.

It'll be really interesting to see if it'll end up selling.

I'm not going to lie, I didn't expect Umi-chan PSP to sell before either version of Shun for PS1.  That's incredibly impressive.

I'm currently bidding on a Shun ~Second Edition~ poster.  If I win, I'll post a photo as usual when it arrives.

This auction for four book/phone cards could get expensive.

I'd like to go for it, but I already have the bottom-left one...

TECH PlayStation CDs are up on Yahoo Auctions.  I wonder how much these will sell for.  Sold for ¥5,000.

This Umihara Kawase figure garage kit went up on YJA two days ago.  Bidding ends in two days, started at ¥1,000 and is currently at ¥7,650.

EDIT: Sold for ¥17,000.

Another figure garage kit is up on YJA, at the buy-it-now price of ¥17,800.  I do wonder if it will sell; despite being only ¥800 higher than the winning bid for the previous kit, that one at least had a low starting price to attract interest.

EDIT: Sold.

Just got a copy of "Umihara Kawase Hyper Technique" in. It was around 2000 yen on YJA, but ended up being around $32 or so after all the Buyee fees. Anyway, here's a better quality scan of the cover in case you want to use it on the site. I would scan the rest, but I only have a flatbed scanner and it's in pretty much new condition so I don't want to mess up the binding.

Oh, awesome, thank you!  I will use it -- I've never been too happy with my cover scan, this one is much better.

I decided to continue the shopping spree, and buy a copy of the SFC version of the game and the doujin artbook. The game hasn't arrived yet, but the artbook has. Since there's pretty much no information about what's in the artbook online, and I don't have the ability to non-destructively scan it, I ended up taking a bunch of blurry pictures of each page using a crappy point-and-shoot, so if anyone wants to check out what's inside, there you go.

In more on-topic news, there's a copy of Shun SE for $30 with no bids and 18 hours left, so hopefully someone here will get a good deal on it.

Oh, nice!  Looks like the artbook is in great condition!
