Hey everyone, Laserwolf here to tell you about a game that I enjoy playing in Japanese.  The design is very similar to Sims.  However, since I have never played Sims (seriously) I can’t tell you which I think is better.  In any case, this game is a good time waster and a fun way to study Japanese.  The game is currently not available in English, but since DS systems are region-free, you can play the Japanese game should you be so inclined.  I have left detailed explanations of what I consider to be the most important things in the game so anyone studying Japanese should not be too intimidated.

“Alice in the Country of Hearts” volumes 1 to 3

16 11 2009

Hello!  This is Laserwolf.  Don’t be fooled by the S following Laserwolf.  There are no other Laserwolfs.  Just like the Highlander, there can be only one.

I love reading and the occasional video game, but lately I have been reading more manga than anything else.  Manga is a wonderful study tool; I live in Japan and I want to improve my Japanese but I have no patience for textbooks.  My favorite manga genre is monster/vampire/werewolf/etc.  Because I often get too engrossed in manga to stop and look up words I don’t know, there is a slight chance I have misunderstood things in Japanese.  However, I will not post anything I feel I have not fully understood.  I have a penchant for reading manga that is not available in English yet.  For this, I am sorry for you non-Japanese readers, but please try to look at it this way – I am introducing you to new things, which you can look forward to reading in English in the future.
