|My Goemon Auction... 6th April|
02 Apr 2012
Hello Everyone... Hope you are all well...
I'm afraid I don't have an update for the site but it's just to let you know that i'm going to be having an auction soon which will contain some Rare Goemon stuff... I've been putting off doing this for some time now...
It feels really wrong for me to be doing this... But I'm at a point where I really need to make some money (otherwise this wouldnt be happening...!) ...Oh the joys of being a student in this economic climate!
Everything you see in the photo will be available on ebay starting 6th April until 14th April, all listings ending approximately 20:30. This auction will be running for 10 days.
Just to make things clear... I'm still and ALWAYS will be a fan of Goemon and I'm keeping my most valued items such as the games. I'm parting with these things because 1.) I don't have a NTSC VCR... 2.) I can't read or understand Japanese and 3.) I feel these items would be better with someone who didn't keep these sealed away in a dark storage. I've just not had any use out of these and would love to give other fans the oportunity to own these... I'm becoming less materialistic.
I am one who does take care of things and like to keep things in the best condition possible... For example, I was always afraid to have the animation cels on display incase of sun damage... So they're wasted on me!
The VHS tapes for the Goemon OVAs are also bit hard for me to let go of, since these were so hard to obtain. But ultimately I did what I wanted to with them, which was share them online with you all and I was the FIRST to ever get these OVAs online! I know I can always watch these versions so i've never had the need to even buy an old VCR.
I will post another update when these items are available (6th April), alongside with ebay links. Don't miss out this oportunity, if you are looking for any of these... as some of these things are VERY RARE... especially outside of Japan!
If you have any questions, please let me know under comments of this update. Also if you are only interested in one or two of the mangas and would rather these individual, we can come to an agreement if before auction ends.
...This is it!
|Goemon arrives to 3DS Virtual console - In Japan|

|Just a small update: Ganbare Goemon: Kurofune Tou No Nazo due to arrive on the 3DS virtual console in Japan next week. One could expect this game to be released in Western territories later on as it was one of the few that originally made it overseas, being released along side the N64 games.|

Long time no news, readers! I apologize for the lack of updates recently. Goemon information is slow as ever, and I've been too busy discovering PC gaming. However, I've got some news and manual scans for you guys today.
|OVA Flash Player|
09 Apr 2011
I'm back with the next update i've been meaning to do. I've now given the same treatment to the OVAs with a Flashplayer/Downloader as I did in my previous update with the Anime Episodes. I feel this player is more appealing to look at also. I got to admit that sadly these aren't re-captured files from the original tapes. I attempted this but was having issues with my device as for some reason it's no longer accepting NTSC properly...
So you can check out the new OVA Player right now, I hope you enjoy it! When you select the video box art, It takes you to a synopsis page in Japanese & English. I wasn't able to figure out the Kanji from the 1st ova case so that's not the original discription unfortunately. The 2nd ova however is exactly whats written on the back of the box and I "attempted" to translate it for the English discription. I may change it later on, as It doesn't look completely right. It's been quite hard to work out what these were saying, due to language barrier and I was having to rely on some google translation as well as my own interpretation from watching the OVAs. If anyone is able to type up the 1st ova discription or give better translations then that'd be very appreciated!
Also, when I get back home later this week, I'll upload this CD single from Ganbare Goemon: Derodero Douchu Obake Tenkomori. It has four tracks consisting of Smile Again and Double Impact in Vocal & Karaoke versions. I'll update this news section once it's available.
And before I go, I'd just like to give my condolences to all those in Japan that had been experiencing the traumatic Earthquake and Tsunami. Our thoughts go out to you all and we hope things will be picking up for you very soon... Ganbare Nippon!!

Hey all, hope you had a happy holidays and continue to have a good new year.
|Anime Flash Player & More!|
10 Nov 2010
Hello Everyone! Sonicdude here! It's been quite some time...!
I'm back with some updates, firstly... Me and Jingleboy spoke a while back about developing how the anime episodes were accessible. I noticed many people liked the Wii version of our site because of the option to video stream. So in the past two weeks I took some time to create a flash video player which allows you to view better quality video, select both languages and also download the original episode files. Admittedly, I would have uploaded even higher quality episodes but I pushed fileden's limits to its max. It will always be upgradeable should an even more generous file host appears.
So you can check out the new Episode Player right now, I hope you enjoy it! The OVAs are also going to have a Flash Player once I have Re-encoded the Videos. Also uploaded two TV commericals into the videoclips page, or you can see them below:
And finally, below are the Mangas that I own and plan on scanning for the site. There'll be a series of updates for these and some more media content will join, please have patience with me on getting all these done. I'm trying to get everything else online which I never had the chance to do so. I feel it's really important considering we are one of the last Goemon resources on the internet...
I'm also going to point out that I have now removed the Wii version of the site, because it deemed to be more a short term gimmick and it wasn't used to its full potential on the Wii. It's a shame but I don't feel it's needed anymore as most browsers will support this main site anyway. Also the Email account for the Wii message board has somehow been hacked and you may have noticed Spam appearing on your console... I'm really sorry about this, the account has now been closed. Please be sure to also remove the address from your Wii contact list.
That's all for now... In the mean time, enjoy the new Episode Player and keep an eye out for my next series of updates!

Hey all, got some bad news I'm afraid. 3 of our file servers have been deleted, which has caused some media to become inaccessible. Known affected media are the Manual scan downloads, screen savers, Japanese anime episodes and anime previews.
