Quote from: Nicole on October 05, 2014, 07:24:16 AMYeah... 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 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.

QuoteMeet Umihara Kawase, she's a delightful lady who goes on adventures to catch walking fish and use her fishing lure to travel acid-enduced landscapes.
Quote from: KawaseFan on July 28, 2015, 08:41:49 AMAnyone think they'll ever get rid of Portable, though?

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.
Quote from: nathan on April 12, 2017, 01:46:32 AMJust 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.https://www.dropbox.com/s/66wn2rkvp0gdqa9/front.png?dl=0
