UPDATED: Thanks MadHatter.
So, as usual I was browsing the サテラビュー tag on NicoNicoDouga and I came across this video being tagged under it;
マリオペイントで「涼宮ハルヒの憂鬱」の 涼宮 ハルヒを描いてみ
And I of course was all like “Well, what does this have to do with Satellaview” so I click on it, and watch this…
Well, this is… fairly interesting! I was never able to draw anything that looked as good on MS Paint as that Haruhi does. **;
But… what’s that stuff about the Satellaview Mario Paint at the end? Dagnabbit, I -really- need to brush up on my Japanese.
also, there appear to be more of these Mario Paint videos, and the descriptions also give links to picture downloads.
EDIT STARTS HERE:
MadHatter provided this transcription of the notes in the video that are relevant to “Mario Paint BS Ban” on The BS Zelda Homepage’s Forum:
I’ve also learned that the second picture in the video – from which this text is displayed during on the video – is in the “Mario Paint Yuushou Naizou Ban” ROM;
To find it, open up the ROM in any emulator (other than ZSNES for some reason….) and “load” data like you would if you saved a picture or musical piece into SRAM.
Based on preliminary/loose translations of the messages and some seemingly related Japanese website notes, I’m under the belief that “Mario Paint BS Ban” was associated with a “Mario Paint Contest”, and the picture in “Yuushou Naizou Ban” was the grand prize winner. Also, according to Madhatter – “Apparently the picture is called “Dreaming of the Moon” and it’s by a fan from Tokyo named ‘溝田 祐子'”.
Obviously, people who can help cross-check this stuff would be very much appreciated. It’s fascinating what Haruhi has taught me about the Satellaview!
