* GraphicsInducedSuperDephormed: The original PC-88 and 98, plus PC-Engine releases didn't have the hardware to render the tall, busty Mail on the cover. Characters tend to be small if nicely animated. The Sega CD release averts this.

* HilariousOuttakes: Clear the game quickly and you'll get to hear voice acting bloopers after the credits are finished rolling.
* HongKongDub: The English version uses a program that attempts to replicate natural lip movements during voiced cutscenes. Even by the admission of the localization team, there are times when the lip-synching can be...hilariously off.

''Popful Mail'' is a side-scrolling action-adventure game, originally made by Creator/NihonFalcom (developers of the ''VideoGame/{{Ys}}'' series) for NEC's PC-88 home computer, and then posted to the PC-98, UsefulNotes/SegaCD and PCEngine CD systems. Creator/WorkingDesigns worked on the localization for the North American Sega CD version (the one that will be covered in this entry). There's also a little-known SuperFamicom version which is essentially a ReformulatedGame due to the remixed area layouts and some plot structure differences, but it still recognizably contains the same overall story as other incarnations.
