    Okay, anyone have any clue how to play this?

    Does it require some kind of special controller or something?

    Fun fact: This is the american localization of Happy Star Band, which is the japanese localization of the european Making the Music. Or is it the other way around?

    you dont need any controller to play this. this is a music rhythm game like elite beat agents. use stylus to play the instruments

    That doesn't mean a male can't play it and like the story, for one I play a lot of games that are designed for girls.

    Obviously it might help if the game FOR girls starts lots of cute girls itself.

    nah i think that's right. this whole series was developed by Arc System Works for the european publisher 505 Games using artwork by some italian comic artist, then they localised them for the japanese market with more..well, japanese-style characters (but the japanese websites still have a 505 Games copyright, indicating the euro versions came first). but aksys evidently can't decide which versions to release in the US, they got the euro version of Princess on Ice and the Japanese version of this.

    How do you play the notes in bass that has diamond inside, in drum that has an arrow inside?

    I don't like playing those two instruments because I miss all of those special notes.

    Ah I just saw the tutorial, but I still can't get the game to register those moves correctly =(

    So far I've only figured out the guitar parts and it's very very Pinky Street so far, moreso than Elite Beat Agents or Music Mon-Stars.

    It's not a bad game. And certainly the fact that I'm a keyboard player and the anime girl keyboard player is the cute one makes it easier to play.

    The game gets hard pretty quickly

    I full-comboed stage 2 on hard with Guitar, and got like a dozen miss on stage 4 hard with guitar O.o

    And similar goes to keyboard, especially the multi-hit notes overlap with each other, making it hard to tell if there's one right after or not.

    IIRC, you slide the diamond side to side when the corresponding color comes to the diamond. i think that was the diamond im thinking about

    Yeah, for Diamond you have to make a line between the diamonds. It can get pretty tricky, though, especially if it's followed by regular plucked notes.

    Edit: To switch instruments, before you start a song you should get a menu that shows all four girls. Just click on the girl you want to play as. If you don't choose, it defaults to guitar.

    Just beat the game on Keyboard, hard. Some notes are really punishing, as there are nearly "invisible" chasers and the game's touch screen recognition isn't that good.

    I played Ouendan 2 a couple days ago no problem so I think it's the game, not my touch screen.

    But it was fun for... an hour-ish.

    Yeah, I beat it, too, in just over an hour.

    Well, it was good while it lasted.
