I think I am probably the only person in the United States who has purchased this game and is loving every second of it.
Old-school JRPGs are a dying breed, especially the hardcore SRPGs like this one. Add in the dating simulator elements, and it's '90s JRPG bliss.
I picked it up for $20 at the local used game shop. Expect me to be deep into it for the next couple of weeks. Or longer. It's a shame that most of the videos on YouTube focus exclusively on the suggestive (or outright blatantly sexual) aspects of the game, it really is a solid and enjoyable SRPG on its own right.
