ItI buy pretty much any game with anime graphics so naturally a Japanese sim game is right up my street. Firstly, the game is very short. It took me 3 hours for my first playthrough. Admittedly, though, there are 6 characters to 'complete' by the end of the game and I only managed 3, and hadn't even met one of the characters, so I imagine there's some replayability there (though I'm not really willing to sit through tonnes of cutscenes I've already seen just to unlock a few pieces of content that I missed the first time). My biggest issue with this game is that many mechanics are used poorly. You can work to earn money but there isn't really all that much need to buy anything as you can generally just use a free version of it (though probably less effective/more random). There's also a fatigue system in place but it never really seemed to affect my gameplay. Overall, it's an okay game. It's biggest selling point is that proper Japanese sim games with good translations like this are fairly rare so it has some novelty. There's a nice 'social' aspect and you find out about the personalities and backstories of 7 relatively interesting characters (including the one you play). The gameplay isn't that amazing as you essentially just build up some skills and spam talk to people until you max out their friendship. It's cheap, but probably not cheap enough to buy unless you're really into this sort of thing.… Full Review »

The music was upbeat and rocking, the dialogue was hilarious, and the characters were colorful and likable.
I will confess the Game only has two playthough if you know what your doing. Also it's a visual novel meaning you have to read a bunch of text, which is a bit of a turn off.
But even with those complaints I would love to see a sequel.… Full Review »

The idea is cute, pretty much like in Magical Diary - you make friends in order to recruit members for your club. The problem is, this game seems dull and boring. After playing more complex games, such as Long Live The Queen, Recettear and even Magical Diary, this game simply pales in comparison - *big time*!
I'm not completely sure, I'm only been playing for an hour or so, so I'm probably going to give it some more time, hoping it'll surprise me. I promise to update this review if I ever change my mind about this game, but so far, I don't like it at all. If you like games like that, better go for a better one, such as the examples I mentioned above.… Full Review »
