    So I came across this particular game:
    [​IMG]

    I got interested, but it's fully japanese (oh really) and I can't read japanese. I played it in PC-8801 and I got as far as finding the menu to disable music. But I've heard that you can use Anime Text Hooker on PC to translate it on-the-fly. I'm going to try it, but I also came across this page:
    http://fullmotionvideo.free.fr/screen/G1461.html
    It states that they have a manual available, but I can't download their manual pack (missing links). Does anyone have an alternative/mirror?

    Also it states "Erotic Content: Yes". I don't have any problem with this kind of content, but is this game just some cheap excuse to show tits or it is elaborated (i.e.: It is a criminal investigation game as I thought and pornography is kept at a bare minimum to only portray realistic scenarios)?

    Edit: Played it some time ago. Actually it's kinda interesting. Shame that I don't know much japanese.

    Hey I just found this game too.
    I did a gameplay video if anyone like to see how it looks


    I do not understand the game myself, I think you might be working for a newspaper and investigating some murders. I did not get so far, I do not know what happen there in the end really.

    See, that's what I like about forum posts, they're like time capsules in a way. It is funny to look at my older posts and see my excessive enthusiasm with everything retrogaming.

    I'll have to take a look at this game again now that I'm actually studying japanese.

    Yee, I totaly agree, I like to fire up old forum post again, if it is for something nice then ofc. Like this game.
    I did not get that far in the game, I got stuck so I guess I was doing something wrong.
    You shuld do a video where you talk and telling what it is all about.
    OR make a translation of this, would be great, I sure play it then again.

    It took me a while to read even the first "dialog" (テンキーの2,4,6,8のキーを押して - "press numpad keys 2, 4, 6, 8") so don't count too much on it lol. I like how I can pick up some stuff randomly though, like for example the murder was in the morning of March 25, the victim was a young woman, it was in the middle of a park/grove, etc. but that's mainly because of the particles and kanji, I "know" around 400 kanji (RTK method so I don't really "know" them) and that's mainly how I guess stuff since I have near zero vocabulary and grammar.

    What I meant is that I still have a long way until I can do any sort of proper playthrough unless I'm really patient to sit 2 hours for each screen with dictionary in one hand, grammar dictionary in other. hah
