The Daimon Steering, as seen in Quiz!! Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon ~ Chiryoku * Tairyoku * Toki no Un ~ (Quiz!! Pretty Soldier Sailor Moon ~ Wisdom * Endurance * A Matter of Chance ~), a Sailor Moon arcade quiz game released in 1997. This doesn’t seem like an optimum attack pose…
A short comic included in the King of Braves GaoGaiGar Original Soundtrack 2 CD booklet (presumably an interview with the composer), and the rear CD case insert.
A Comparison video I made for anyone who is interested!
I got the PC Engine Version today.
A comparison between two versions of Popful Mail. The background music is pretty good.
And then there was the time Japanese superhero Ultraman and some of his enemies did an extended parody of/cash-in to Scatman John.
Note: read from right to left.
So far as I’ve read, the largest concentration of unique female character designs in YuYu Hakusho - Shishiwakamaru’s demon fanclub. I can’t tell if the girl to the left of the oni has a beak, or if they just forgot to both shade the inside of her mouth and draw her nose. Special guest appearances in these panels by Shishiwakamaru’s leg and kitsune(?) ring announcer Koto.
If I remember right, the group of monsters and the person sitting next to Koto changed with every chapter, and sometimes from panel to panel. I’m not sure if I should commend the artist for not using stock art, or complain because of the lack of visual consistency.
So I own this Disney Afternoon cassette tape, and transferred the songs from it onto MP3 a while back. Here’s track 3, “Gummiberry Juice”, an in-episode song from the fourth episode of Disney’s Adventures of the Gummi Bears. It’s the one where the young female Gummi Bear, Sunni, was captured by sentient vulture monsters. I was always sort of baffled that those monsters barely appeared, since they were featured in the show’s intro sequence…
please don’t sue me, giant mega-corporation
Aaaaaancient scans of Cobra Commander’s battle armor from the last few issues of Marvel’s original G.I. Joe comic. To date, this design has never received a toyline counterpart, which is kind of striking considering how much the modern G.I. Joe toys take inspiration from the comics. I had attempted to remove the backgrounds from all three of the images, with varying degrees of success. I don’t think I have the unaltered versions anymore…
Anyway. Using this armor and a specially-manufactured Ninja Disorienting Hallway installed in the Silent Castle, Cobra Commander was able to defeat and capture the then-heroic Storm Shadow. This led to Snake-Eyes mounting a rescue attempt for his sword brother - and surely he’d fall for CC’s new tricks, too! However, Snake-Eyes (seen in the background of the third pic) was able to get through the special Ninja Disorienting Hallway by… CLOSING HIS EYES! Then he hit Cobra Commander with a flechette round, because he decided to rescue Storm Shadow in a commando-y way instead of a ninja-y way for some reason. I’m not sure why this ignited CC, but it’s been a while since I’ve read the story. Maybe Snake-Eyes had a flamethrower, too?

This is a ridiculously intense tune for a show about Bomberman. It’s also kind of goofy how incongruous the no-mouth, no-fingers character designs look relative to the more realistically rendered mecha (wait, Bomberman in mecha?). Still, I keep listening to the song.
Also, after the three minute mark, there is a unicorn in sunglasses whose horn is an actual ear of corn.
