    Er, Zelda, Phantom Hourglass?

    Heard it's not a bad game to learn Japanese (assuming that's what you're doing), they even show the Furigana when you tap on the Kanji in the text.

    Err, you do know that most games have Japanese versions, right? So taking a peek at the releases won't hurt.

    I've gone through the release list and seen a ton of Japanese games that are 16MB or smaller the problem is i cant find any reviews or screen shots on most of the games

    I'm not looking for Japanese versions of games I'm looking for games that are Japanese only.Most Likely if a game has a US release i already have it.I'm just looking for games that don't require you to know Japanese to play it.

    It's probably time for an "essentials" thread for recommended Japanese games.

    Yes i agree with you no matter what websites i look on majority of the time if anyone has rated the game there is no review of the game and no screen shots.

    I think your biggest obstacle is going to be limiting your search to 16MB-size games. There are obviously quite a few, really good Japanese games that are playable without knowledge of the language, but many of the ones I'd recommend are sizable files.

    Do you trim your roms? I ask because I have 120+ DS roms (+ 3 emulators and 400ish roms for them) on an 8GB card, and still have over 1GB free. If not, I suggest doing so, because it will definitely save a considerable amount of space with that number of games.

    Picross DS & Picross 3D cross my mind, but I forgot the file size [​IMG] For screenshots & reviews you can check at gamefaqs.

    Jump! Ultimate Stars? Might eat a bit of size but it's worth it. There's also a translation patch, which does make it a little bit easier to know what to do, but if you read the Gamefaqs translation that was enough for me until I delved a bit deeper and discovered the patch.
