First off, the storyline is amazing; it's just like the anime, with a few minor differences. I really enjoyed playing through it, especially after I had watched the anime. For those who do not already know the story, they will find themselves drawn into the storyline, anticipating what is to come next. The characters are just like the ones in the manga/anime, the playable ones being the 6 main characters. A new feature is the "quips" equip, which are quotes from the dialogue of the game from each character, and by equipping them, they trigger a special effect during battle, such as attack up or heal at the beginning of battle. The controls were a bit confusing at first, but I got the hang of it after playing for awhile. An attack is assigned to each button, and depending on the order you press the buttons, the attacks may change and lead to chain attacks. The number of attacks is limited, but sometimes you can overcome that by dealing critical hits and etc. The in-game graphics are okay, but not amazing. The CG cut-scenes are a nice addition, but they could be better or be replaced with anime cut-scenes for the same effect. The BGM was typical, but the voice acting was really poor. I feel as if they could've done a better job with the voice acting, so I wouldn't have to play with the sound off. It's one of my pet peeves, but even so, the characters all sound monotone except during the few times when they inunciate, and even then, they inunciate the wrong part of the sentence. The voice acting was an overall failure. Everything else was fairly good except for one thing: the camera angles. Although the camera angles only matter in towns, it can still get quite irritating when they turn for you. Sometimes, I'd be heading in a direction and the camera angle would change for me, while my reactions to the changes are a bit delayed, I continue to walk in the same direction, while heading towards a different direction because the angle has been changed. Other than that, I am very satisfied with this game overall.
