£49.99 yeouch!
I didn't get a manga with my copy but I only paid about 19.99 USD (after discount) on amazon. BTW, has anyone actually seen this game in stores? I have only ever seen it on a online retailer.

Lost interest in the manga when they left 'kawaii' in that ad untranslated. Also not right-to-left, booo.

I'll probably pick up the game in a year or two when the next drought comes along. I do want this title, but there's waaay too much higher on my priority list for the next few months.

I would love to get this, especially whats coming with the limited edition but there are other 3DS games out before the end of the year that are higher on my priority list so I'll get this at a later date.
