YMMV / Popful Mail

  • Demonic Spiders: Many of the enemies fought later, especially those flying knights.
  • Ear Worm: Jungle Battle, the first area music is very energetic and catchy.
  • Older Than They Think: Despite some major resemblance to The Slayers, all versions of the game predate the animated series by a fair bit.
  • Polished Port: The Sega CD release features redrawn sprites that are much larger and more detailed, now able to depict the heroine's assets, features voice acted dialogue and animated cutscenes, a richer, more energetic soundtrack thanks to the console's higher quality synth, and runs at a faster pace than the other ports.
  • That One Boss: Goradus can be one - every time you hit him, he gets pissed off and does a Ground Pound, which makes rocks fall quickly on completely random positions. And those rocks hurt A LOT.
  • That One Level: Chilly can become this, due to your lack of traction on the ice unless you get the spiked boots.
  • Visual Effects of Awesome: The cutscenes in the Sega CD version are sprite-based, rather than FMV. Despite this, they are very well animated, featuring tons of animation with unique poses and difficult camera angles.
