Read the link in x_comps post, it's yet another game based off an anime show/manga, the previous game was fun.


This game is looking pretty good so far... I struggle to get past the start screen simply because I love listening to the theme tune (with full vocals!)... the presentation is top notch.

x_comp you wanna help me get my head around the basics of the card system by any chance? Any hints or help would be appreciated.

Oh yeah, the simulation looks a lot more lively than the first.

I'm working on a guide right now. You can find the one I wrote last night based on the demo on GameFAQs now. It goes through the card system and the gameplay cycle. Probably have it updated by tonight.

It is like yugioh game.
Each game have a goal: (e.g 150,000 yen) or 500 customers.
Very interesting.

xcomp - Wow, you typed up all that in one day? Good job man! Great guide, lol and I thought I was starting to get to grips with the game last night... the card system is a lot deeper than I thought.

Couple of questions though... firstly you say that there isn't stock management in this, so what is the screen you encounter later on with various items (inc. a GBA, food, flowers etc...) for? You can select items from a menu and put them onto the shelves. Does this affect the sales/attract more customers or anything? I'm just wondering what it's all about...

The other thing is saving... the first saved quite regulary and had a little saving sign but in this after playing past the tutorial bit and past that stock screen I mentioned above the game still hadn't seemed to saved. ~ When I turn off my GBA I see a save has been made but it's like starting the game fresh and I have to go through the tutorial bits again. I patched the rom and everything so I think it'[s just not saving in game... it's annoying playing through the tutorial bit time and time again.

Anyway keep up the great work bud.

There really is no stock management like in the first game. As for those items you can purchase after the prologue, I just got to that part today. They help boost your popularity and the total amount of money you have. Usually just a +1 for popularity and +100 for money.

As for saving, I haven't come across any opportunities to save in the game yet. After I beat the Black Gemas and reset the ROM, there's no option to load. Dejiko asks for my name again so I guess it never did save the progress....

It's odd but this isn't the first time we're having save problems with dumps by Caravan. BB Ball didn't save properly either.

I think they're an Asian group because they seem to only dump Asian stuff including Japanese PC games (and I'm not talking about those games btw).

Well, this game really doesn't seem to save. You get a chance to save once you played through and completed the last episode. But even then, the saved data isn't kept when you reset the game. Already tried patching and changing the save type. Doesn't seem to work either way.

Ah well, have to stick with VBA's quick save.

If you switch save type from "Auto" to "EEPROM" in VBA and then restart, this game will save normally.
You will see Japanese saving message from time to time

Still can't save with flash carts though...

Really? Must try. Maybe the CG Gallery can be unlocked properly now and I can make my guide more complete.

- Edit -

Wow, it works! Thanks Saboten! The settings are Save Type -> EEPROM, Flash 64K and everything will work properly.
