    lol x.domination. i bet all japanese anime looking games are hentai games to you huh?

    when i first saw this game, i thought to myself, they ripped off K-ON!. four girls and a band; guitar, bass, drums, keyboard piano.
    i guess this company made the game before a k-on game got made.

    I'd expect a K-ON game to be more adventure/text based or mini-game based than an actual music game honestly, since they've only really played as a band for what, two or three times?
    EDIT: At least that's what I gathered. Don't keep up to date with the anime.

    That's crazy, what are the odds of the four most common instruments in popular music being represented here? And females? There's no way they came up with the idea for breasts and vaginas by themselves.

    According to the screen shots on the link x.domination provided, one of the girls in the game is called Mio (the blue-haired girl).
    I haven't watched K-On yet, but I'm pretty sure there's a band member in it who's also called Mio.
    Coincidence?

    I really thought this one to be very casual/shovel rhythm game like rhythm de run run was but no it isn't. drum mode is really confusing, feels like you'd need 2 styluses to beat them.also guitar playing feels really odd at first.
    I thought piano mode would've been made more in dj max or beatmania way, but rather than that you hit the notes when vertical lines above and below keys "collides". Hard mode makes this bit hard as screen is full of lines, but guess it's just issue to get used to.
    I don't recognize any of those songs and too bad they don't have any vocals, only better quality midi melody.

    In overall, game is one of the ds's better rhythm games.

    its not hard to save the game. i think im at the last concert. the game is easy and fun. four different play styles since there are 4 girls. america will get it on july 28.

    to save, at the main map, choose bottom left then you will see 6 choices. the 6th box is the save option =p
