I don't get that way anymore since I am making a game that slates me (before, I wasn't making any modern day stat raisers date simmy things). But then, I just don't have the patience for TMGS at all anymore. Takes way too long to play and the little generic cutscenes are no longer worth it. Becoming a game maker has killed a lot of games for me ... but I don't regret it. :)
I dunno but i love stat-raising, if i can code stat raising styled game(which i can't), I'd definitely do it XDD

Yesh, school is done for good now, I'll start TMGS1 now again~

...well. Somehow I am really excited to play it now, even with my hate for stat-raisings and especially the bombs. Well. No matter. What I really like about TMGS is that you kind of get informed about a school year in Japan and what you do or what events occur and stuff. Really helpful in case I'll ever decide to use the Japanese highschool setting xD

It'd be awesome if it's made in English

Well, the solution is to learn Japanese as your second language though :D

I had finished the Tokimemo 1 and 2 in Japs, but not the Tokimemo 3 yet :D

I totally plan to except it would be my...forth language or something.

Tell us how TMGS3 is when you do play it, I am curious~

Oh, I believe the translation is in (slow) progress but it will definitely be translated by the fans. Just keep in mind they, too, have a life and school and everything. Gotta love them, thanks to them we get to playn these wodnerful games~

And I think I like the boys from 2 even more than 1, too. What with this cute, handsome teacher, that tsundere main boy and all those others? :3

Tokimeki Girl's Side series is what first got me into visual novels, and I have to say I'm a HUGE fan of them. I've already played 3rd story ( even though I can't understand Japanese, I still adored it! The brothers have to be my favorite guys!) and I can't wait until it's English patch is released.

I'm actually crossing my fingers on the translation cause we never know when Konami would make a move and sue them X.X like what happened on a certain game i forgot the title and the people who translated it, got sued and.... :(

Ah, yeah...I hope they will live through. I know there is no excuse like "it's 'cause they don't localize or find someone who localizes those games outside Japan and thus we have to rely on fan translation", but they are still doing a very nice deed for us non-Japanese-understanding fans, so I am rooting for them D:

TMSGS1&2 have a translation fan patch in English which is really good! The voicing is still in Japanese, but everything else is in English ^^ I think it's on GBAtemp somewhere...can't remember xD I think I might have posted the links up in a waaaay earlier post somewhere though xD

Haha I'm actually recording some of my playthroughs for TMGS3 on my YouTube account (yjkunieda), some with subs ^^; /shameless promotion

I don't think Konami would ever release an official English version of TMGS, no matter how popular it is with English-speaking fanbase. Otome games are still a niche market outside of Japan, even in Asian countries like the one I live in it is very difficult to admit that you like playing dating sims in public. Also I think the entire setting of TMGS is altogether too Japanese-y, which makes things even harder to localize. A lot of people say that they don't mind if they leave everything Japanese-y the way it is right down to the honorifics, but this still isn't a big enough group of people for Konami to make a profit of; they'd want to put out a game that every girl wants to play and not just the girls who are into Japanese culture.

I think the best thing non-Japanese-speaking fans can hope for is to attempt to learn the language + read guides + fan translation patches, which aren't bad at all. \o/ Or maybe another company can make a breakthrough-English-language otome game?

But TMGS really kickstarted my interest in visual novels... It's fun, simple and very rewarding ^^ You want to play it over and over again just to get every boy's ending orz

I'm really curious about this but.... when you say patch, does this mean you use the rom file? Or you can patch the original cartridge too? (I am not playing translated versions seeing that I don't really need to). If in cartridge, I'm curious how you patch it since there is not card reader for DS cartridges right?

When I say patch I mean patching the clean JP rom with xDelta or xDeltaGUI (depending on the patch rom) and then putting it on the memory stick (I use an r4 but I had to update it with r4 wood for it to work).
The TMGS1&2 translation team gives you instructions on how to patch it as well, so it's pretty useful.

I think that if you have the actual game then it isn't possible to patch it...
