    Genre should be Adventure/Mystery instead of Action. There isn't much action in this game, it plays like a visual novel.

    There is an anime this accompanies? Find I must. I saw screens for this game and had this huge, unexplainable urge to play the game. Or at least what the jist of it is in english and I just looking at the pictures.

    Yup, there's the first season (Jigoku Shoujo) and the second (and last season, Jigoku Shoujo Futamokiri[sp?])

    I've watched both, and they're excellent. This game looks sweet, woe to me and my lack of knowledge of Japanese [​IMG]

    Didn't expect to see a Jigoku Shoujo game of all things.
    The anime was ok, I only watched the first season and an episode or two of the second one and it was an ok show, too episodic for my taste, plus it relays on following a formula too much and I dislike shows that strictly follow a certain formula.
    It's not a bad show, but it definitely is wasted potential, it could've been so much more.
    Wonder if this game is any good, I kinda doubt it, probably just an average japanese text adventure.

    What is this, the GBATemp mantra?
    You see it in every other Japanese release's comments 2 or 3 times. [​IMG]

    edit: Also, I have to agree with all the people calling the cover art stunning. Best cover to date imo.

    Here you go guys, I knew that image seemed familiar, a quick search through my My Pictures folder got me this:

    I'm sure you can get an even better quality pic of this over at 4chan or something.

    lol, the cover isn't that great!

    it's just a generic anime wall/poster art.
