This is probably not the game for you if you are looking for a sweeping, grand narrative of the sorts that JRPGs often provide, as it instead focuses on the more personal stories of the main character and the people she meets while trying to save her atelier from closure. Thus, getting the most out of the plot will involve pursuing each of the character endings (which can be done in one playthrough). If you're a fan of "slice of life" anime, then chances are you'll like Atelier Rorona.
The game is also friendly for those with a relatively limited knowledge of Japanese because of the frequently mundane topics of conversation, however being proficient with a dictionary will be important for figuring out quest requirements and item effects. Overall it isn't a bad choice of study aid for someone with a few years of experience under their belt.
Lastly, this version is highly recommended over the original version due to the updated art and systems, and the inclusion of a character who was previously sold as DLC.
