Though I've never played a second of Millennium Kitchen's nostalgic Boku no Natsuyasumi (My Summer Vacation) games due to it being a text-heavy, Japan-only series, I love reading anything I can find on it, which is why I jumped at the chance to feature Eastern Mind's tour of Boku no Natsuyasumi 4 for the PSP here a few months ago.

Hardcore Gaming 101 is doing something similar with Boku no Natsuyasumi 3, which released for PS3 three years ago, posting daily entries as part of a month-long diary that follows a 10-year-old Japanese boy's summer vacation in August 1975. The journal's writer, Sketcz, hopes the diary will encourage more people to check out the series.

He says, "And although I don’t think big publishers read this blog (maybe they do?), I hope that it generates enough interest in the franchise so that someone emails someone else and maybe we someday see one of the series in the west, in English. Failing that, maybe the fan-translation community will tackle the PSP version."

HG101 has only posted six entries from the diary so far, but it's already filled with tales of ghosts, snakes, bug fights, and more. You can start reading the Boku no Natsuyasumi 3 diary, which features a lot of accompanying screenshots to accompany the mentioned events, with this first entry.
