    Released by a new group that calls itself: 2channeller. According to their nfo, WRG beat them to releasing Sim City DS.
    From the boxshot, it looks like an English learning course.

    Ah, Nova, whose most recent publicity was the arrest of a bunch of teachers on drug charges.

    I really really hate Nova. And most any of the other big name English schools.

    But I`m pretty interested in the group releasing it. Wonder if they`re real neras....

    I hope that the Mascot in the boxart doesn't think that the periods are part of the English alphabet.

    Nova is an English conversation "school" in Japan. It`s either the biggest chain or one of the biggest.

    I put "school" in quotes because Nova is like the McDonald's of schooling. They care how qualified their teachers are about as much as McDonald's cares about how good of cooks their kitchen staff is... In other words, not at all. Sure, there are good people and good teachers mixed in, but that`s all by chance.

    I hate them because they lower the standard by which English skills in Japan are judged. As they are the "majority" they lower the whole system. They also tend to give all the other (as in not working at Nova or similar schools) foreigners in Japan a bad name.
