Random Time! - Mario's junk was proudly on display in an officially-licensed manga

Here we were going crazy over Mario's nipples, and now we have something like this! Apparently during 1988-89, Nintendo had partnered up with manga publisher Kodansha for a series of comics. Each one focused on a particular game in the Mario series at that point, and the one we're looking at here tackles Super Mario Land.

In this particular issue, a Fish Bone jumps out of the water and bites Mario's butt. This causes Mario to yelp in pain and launch right out of his overalls, leaving his twig and berries for all to see. You can bet we're never going to see an officially-licensed bit of merch that shows this kind of thing again! You can see the uncensored version after the jump.

Just in case you're wondering, the text says something like this:

Mario: You little…!
Robot-thingy: Ma-Mario's… [Peach is inside Mechawaribo (Or whatever that thin'gs name is)]
Robot-thingy (Peach): You pervert!
Mario: Oh! A bonus zone!

So all these years Mario was going commando under those overalls?
This is like when I first learned Samus was a girl...

That's nothing. In the Japanese version of Paper Mario: The thousand year door, there was blood in a certain room!

Judging by the size, I can now understand Mario's Super Mushroom addiction. Japan definitely has some different standards when it comes to how characters are portrayed in what is perceived to be a kid-friendly use of Nintendo's (or the Pokemon Company's) IP such as in the Pokemon manga where Ash is holding his gonads like a pair of handlebars. http://www.dorkly.com/post/76787/bizarre-pokemon-spinoffs/page:3

I’m not a native English speaker and I’ve just learned the expression "twig and berries" thanks to you, RMC.
I think it’s a fantastic expression.

while this is certainly... "interesting"?
I think we've all seen similar pictures of mario just casually browsing the internet, whether we wanted to or not lol

"For context: Peach is hidden inside the robot, and after seeing Mario’s junk—which sets her heart racing—she calls him a perv and punches him into a bonus level full of coins."

Priceless
