Interesting stuff. Alas, I'm never going to own a PSP.

@InfiniteGeass: @Skyfire543: @BisonHero:

It's all good. Usually, these anime based games don't make it to U.S. shores except for those popular Shonen games like Naruto and Dragon Ball who have a big audience.

Edit:

Fix statement.

Updates

  • Added more source links
  • Added one image that was not part of the bundle (the limited edition Blu-Ray). It was my mistake. I can't edit the thread without having the images acting weird. Removed it.

@takashichea: Yep. I'd totally play the OreImo game and the Haganai games as well, but that'll probably never happen.

I see YUI on the box art. Is YUI in the game? She ought to be, because YUI is adorable.

Man I fucking hate Sword Art Online so much.

I'd probably be more into this series if I didn't dislike the protagonist. :/

Well, I suppose this is good news for those who enjoy the series.

Can't say no to that face

@Zomgfruitbunnies:

Yeah, Yui is a cute Tinkerbell.

@Simplexity:

No problem. There are anime series that does MMORG better. Is it the platonic harem that ticking you off or Kirito?

@OmegaChosen:

He's pretty bland, over powered guy who's a moody loner. It's only the girls who are more interesting. Though, they need to show more of Klein and Egil.
