I was well aware of the existence of Gakken's games before, and their cute, quintessentially-80s design, but much like Nintendo's Game & Watch series, once I got one in my hands, I was impressed with the form factor and size. They're neat little conversation pieces, so I decided to track down more of em. I bought Fishing Boy & it arrived on Tuesday from Japan, and I'm expecting one more from a prominent collector in "ASIA" (says their ebay location, they've been around forever & I've sold them stuff before, so I know they're legit & passionate about handhelds, otherwise I wouldn't be buying from them) in the next week or two.
