If you're a fan of the anime/manga, this game is a must to play. You might think that already knowing whats going to happen takes away from the story mode, but playing through it you'll notice tears forcing their way out because the game is just that good. I do have to say that some of the cut scenes are lengthy.. some of them going anywhere from 10-20min long. The other modes are solid as well. If you're not familiar or not a fan, try this game anyways and you might find yourself liking the game yourself. Cheers!
