entertaining and silly
I\'ve had this game for about 5 months now and I still consider it to be one of the deepest games I own. It\'s a high school life/dating sim in which you are a Japanese high school girl. I can\'t believe no one has reviewed this yet, because the game is pretty popular...

Anyway, there are 6 guys to pick from that you can date during the game, four girls to befriend who may turn out to be your rivals, and then there\'s the teacher (psycho) and this guy who hangs out at the school (creepy) and one last guy who e-mails you. Your little brother wants you to be popular so that you don\'t embarrass him, so he helps you by telling you info about guys and pestering you to go out.

In this game you live through 3 years of life as a student in Japan. This is pretty cool because you get to go through Sports Day, Culture Festival, class trip, quarterly finals, that square dance thing you see in anime... this is all really fun. You also get to go to seasonal events and see Japanese holidays like Summer festival, New Years, cherry blossom time, etc.

You have to plan and divide your time between studying, exercise, joining a club, part time work, time with friends, dating, and resting. You also can go out shopping and buy things... this gets pretty funny, because you can dress in different clothes for dates, the people you meet react to your clothes, very amusing.

The thing I like best about this game is that it never gets boring. The music is good, and it changes constantly with seasons, so you\'re not hearing the same tired song repeatedly. All of the daily activities are shown with little chibi scenes that are really cute and will make you laugh. The minigames are fun too, there\'s a pillowfight game, a chocolate making game, and games on Sports Day.

The game has a voice simulation feature in which you can tell the game what syllables make up your name, and the characters will say your name out loud, and differently depending on how much they like you. This is pretty entertaining, to say the least. The girls you can make friends with (or even get them to have a crush on you) are really funny and not stereotypical at all.

The guys on the other hand.... well, they\'re not like, especially attractive. I kind of cringe when I see this one kid Hibiya. The voice actors of the guys are all really famous, Midorikawa Hikaru, Ishida Akira, Koyasu Takehito, and Yamaguchi Kappei are all in it... yet, I don\'t know... I don\'t think they\'re as cute as they could have been. But their personalities are pretty amusing.

The game is pretty hard. It will keep you occupied for months to unlock everything and get all of the endings and screencaps and interviews. It has a ton of replay value. The city has tons of things to do and places to go on dates or for shopping. You can change your club and what you do or who you hang out with or where you work and the game is different every time. It\'s a fun game and a cute way to see a really idealized version of Japanese school life.

I hope they make a sequel, and make the guys better looking (and ditch the old men, please...).
