I may sound a little bias here since i know nothing about the characters, the show, or the manga, but the game seems a little overrated as a fighter. the graphics are phenomenal and its easy to pick up and play, if you like mashing on your controller incessantly. But I was not aware half of the game has you running around town collecting all kinds of trinkets and tokens; speaking to npc's with all kinds of assumed esoteric banter i just don't get. Not a bad fighter and it was fun when it was time to kick some butt, but seems some of the extra content is lost on me; fans would probably enjoy this more.
I HAVE WAITED A YEAR FOR THIS GAME AND IT IS WAY BETTER THAN I EXPECTED!! i gotta say though, i beat the game in 2 days. it gets really boring if you dont have somebody to play it with. thats why i gave it a 9
