Ratings and Reviews
A cute, enjoyable game!
I honestly love this app. The areas and art is cute, and I really like how it slowly introduces you to more words and more complex sentences, while also being a fairly enjoyable game.
It’s very simple in presentation and easy to learn intuitively, and it seems to hit that perfect mix of how much Japanese it gives you as you go on for you to start to naturally understand what a new word means. It even includes dailies that have a flash card system that you can customize to help you review words or try and pick up new ones from card sets you can find around the game.
I could see it potentially benefitting for some kind of system to “grind” if you feel like it, I hit the cap on items and money and didn’t know what to spend stuff on. And because of its nature the app won’t give you many/any in depth explanations on grammar or conjugation. But it holds interest very well, and it makes you want to play more! So really, I’d say all I have to complain about is that I want more content to be out.
I love that this app gives so much reading practice, and it helps contextualize the words you learn by using them in both English and Japanese sentences (this also is helping me to start seeing grammar patterns). The sense of story, exploration, and travel makes it an engaging way to learn. The characters are adorable, and the backgrounds feel like you’ve walked into a Ghibli movie. All of this creates an immersive and pleasing little fictional environment tha facilitates real learning and study, because the practice sessions are also put together in a way that helps me memorize more words. I love the little study cards and books that are collected throughout the game and will definitely be using them to review content. I hope the app continues to grow and add chapters over time, because it is a positive delight to have in the mix of study tools as a beginning learner of Japanese. To those who have clearly put in so much effort to create this, ありがとうございます！
Unique language learning experience
This is one of the most unique apps/games to learn Japanese I have found after a lot of searching. It stands out from other language learning apps in that it has a cohesive story and real RPG-like elements, which motivates you to keep playing, improving your character and meet new and returning characters.
The only suggestions I have are adding more gameplay variations instead of only typing the pronunciation of words shown on screen. And of course more levels would be amazing, but I understand the time and effort it takes to create new content. Good job overall!!
