    Seems interesting, I'd love to actually try and e-mail Manaka. If this game got released in America, and Konami decided to also bring the e-mail service over.

    Check the flag dumby
    Oh boy, just in time for Forever alone day.

    I wonder how akward it is to be the one having to write these e-mails (Assuming the E-mails will actually be different and not just copy pastas of each other.).

    It makes some people happy, I don't see the problem. And Konami profits too, so everyone is happy.

    EDIT: NOW NOT AN IMAGE ONLY POST.

    Yeah, LovePlus makes me not like Japan in so many ways.

    Also, what is this "e-mail" that they talk of?

    I can't put my finger on the words or thoughts, but their numerous wrong things with that reasoning.
    Like ,idk, false happiness. Being happy for the wrong reason. :unsure:


    So in other words, you didn't like Japan as a whole for one game?

    I'd rather dislike one culture's tastes than be completely ignorant to my own. And know, I don't dislike Japan, there's just certainly a huge aspect of it that I disdain. LovePlus and those types of games are certainly one of them.

    This seems a pretty interesting service. xP
    Although I have no idea how the hell it'll work out... Will there be people actually replying to the players? If so, that'd be really sad... To find out that the emails you received from Manaka, Rinko or Nene were being written by some dudes in their 40's... >.<
    I love dating sims and the Love Plus games, but this service will kinda weird tbh... .-."

    Anywhere at the moment
    LOL, didn't we see something like this in an anime called "Chobits"? XD!!!

    Sadly, there are people out there who do take this sort of thing seriously.

    In another hand, some people may find it to be another aspect of the game to enjoy.

    Either way, Konami makes money. LULZ
