I mean look at the game, you control a character that looks to me like a female genie instead of the kid with the blonde hair. I'm still looking forward to seeing how this game plays out tomorrow. Also, besides the fact that it's a Japanese import game that's making it's first appearance on Wii VC makes it all the more interesting.

I was expecting the worst when I got this game, thinking it was maybe nothing more than an over hyped Japanese game. Boy was I wrong. Even though it started out easier than expected, it soon became a joy to play and I don't regret my decision at all. A real gem.

It took forever for this game to come out here. Is it gonna take forever to get a review?

@H_Hunter You posted that on the virtual console topic about this as well, and I have no idea what your motive is. Especially because you can't elaborate.
