Scans & Bits

It's only after I've got over forty gigabytes of assorted scans on my hard drive and half my floorspace covered in books, magazines and assorted gubbins do I realise - I scan a lot of things! Like, a lot of things!
Maybe I oughta share them sometime!

This page also serves as big dumb research into Japan-only magazines and manga anthologies, with links to scans and translations from other folks when available.

Feel free to distribute these images as you please. A link back to this page wouldn't hurt if just so people know where to find the rest (nobody was talking about GO! Ketsu Wario until I raised a stink about it, goshdarnit!), but it's a free country.
Interested in translating these? Feel free, and tell me about it! I want to support such endeavours in any way I can, and I'm willing to commission!
If any official body representing the properties scanned here doesn't approve of the images being publicly available, contact me! I cower real easy!

Star Fox Super Capture Guide

A pack-in booklet with the No.4 1993 issue of Dengeki Super Famicom (電撃スーパーファミコン), dated March 13th. Contains a basic walkthrough as well as a featurette on polygonal technology and an interview with Hiroyuki Takahashi (高橋 宏之) of Shining Force fame... but nuts to all that, it's got eight pages of Star Fox manga!!

Two guidebooks for Super Mario World published by APE Inc. (エイプ・小学館) on January and July 1991.
