Update: So I finished the game, you can read my followup post and final thoughts on it by clicking here.
After seeing the highly emotional and generally well put together trailer to the PSP RPG Last Ranker, I was quite hyped to give it a try myself. There seemed to be a fairly personal story with some good ol’ Japanese melodrama, decent graphics and a seemingly strong and determined protagonist who also happens to be the doppelganger of Yuri Hyuga of Shadow Hearts fame. And we have a heroine voiced by Marina Inoue. What more could I want?
