    Seems so and it's been on for a while looking at the site. Episode 38 now.

    Kiniro no Gashbell (Fuji TV Site)
    Official Site

    Main character Gash is a junior high student and a genius. One day, a demon child appears before him from Makai (World of Demons) and now he must fight with a hundred other of these things so that he can take the position as the ruler of Makai. With the use of his spellbook, he must battle it out with others like himself and learn from his experiences so that he may become a kind ruler.

    Sounds like another Pokemon clone to me. Those two small guys at the bottom of the screenshot must be those "demon children".

    Erm anyway this game is weird...I think it's mainly your little robot/demon child that does the fighting, but the book reader can also deal out damage and the two can combine attacks or something. Controls and attacks seem quite limited, although I'm not exactly the best at figuring out combos in fighting games.

    Kinda like your generic fighting game, but with a plot and some crazy fighting...made by Banpresto... I'm happy; pretty interesting.

    Sweet! This anime is awsome!
    I must obtain this game and not understand any of it because it is in Japanese!

    Christ people, you control the little guy, a robot-demon-like thing, by reading spells out of a book.
    It's just like using magic, except for the lightning coming out of your hand or something, it just comes out of his mouth.

    And it SHOULDN'T be a pokemon clone, if it was it would totally go against the Anime, you keep Gash Bell through the whole thing.

    You don't have to totally slam something because it looks stupid. [​IMG]

    This game looks alright graphically but the gameplay (fighting system) is terrible. It's not even fun after 5 mins.

    This has got to be the weirdest concept for a game I've heard in awhile. [​IMG]

    Never did say it was a bad game. I only said Pokemon clone because it uses the same concept where you control another being to battle it out. It wouldn't surprise me if the author did use the idea since it's a tried and tested idea. A successful one too [​IMG]

    Well still, i've you've seen the anime you'd know that it wouldn't make any sense at all.
    But it WOULD be a cool idea [​IMG].

    yes, the anime is much much better, though it's really for a younger audience.

    BTW, the name is "Konjiki No Gash-Bell", kiniro is the normal way of reading it, but Konjiki is a older, more archaic way of saying golden.

    i was really looking forward to this, but after trying it out, i can say that it's not a great game. it's not bad either, and has a lot of special items, like 4 mini-games, a few things to collect, a challenge and survival mode after you clear the game, etc. still, you won't be impressed by the gameplay, and you probably won't enjoy if you didn't see the anime, which i recommend you do since it's pretty decently done.

    edit: x-comp, yeah. but i thought maybe they knew about it from the anime.

    Well, can't blame the dumpers. The Furigana's so small you can hardly read it [​IMG]

    - Edit -

    Yeah, you're right. But, come to think of it, there isn't really a right way. "Konjiki" is just the Onyomi way of reading them together which is usually the way of reading compound Kanji. In this case, if the Furigana wasn't there, my guess is that young children would probably have pronounced it the same way as the dumpers (no offence). It wouldn't be wrong either since they're just using the Kunyomi way of reading it instead.

    In this case, the author decided to use Onyomi, so I guess it's "wrong" [​IMG]
