Author's comments and explanations:
Jo is your average American teenager with a love for kendo. How lucky she is to be sent to Japan for the summer to attend Honest Osaki's Kendo School and Used Car Sales!

It's the first day of school, and it's a five hour commute (or would be, anyway; I managed it in a little over an hour). Osaki (AKA Bob) appears and tells her the situation. The path to school will take her under a lake, over a snow covered field, and through what can only be assumed to be the local terrorist group's toy factory, bringing her face to face with a giant robot, a chibi doppleganger, and a feathery regeneration of the Doctor. To help her, Bob hands Jo a small golden elephant that will turn Jo into a Magical Girl(tm)! Her first lesson? Don't be late to school!

Really, how this game got outside of Japan is a mystery that will die with the ones who let it.

The reason I picked this game was because I thought it was an obvious shoe-in for a movie, and was getting irritated that no one else did one. So, I took matters into my own hands, and here's the results:


A little different here. I take one hit from an enemy to help propel me through a current, but I had a yellow orb so no damage was taken; yet, I end each level in the critical zone because the rush attack eats health. I guess "Takes no direct damage" would be a good description.

Played at hardest difficulty; no luck manipulation.


Snow Queen

The Pond


The Commute


School Daze

Note: Bob has a short message after the credits that you can speed up like ordinary dialogue, but I ignored it because it would have tacked on an additional 4-5 minutes without adding much of anything.

Thanks be to Bisqwit for handling a small issue with the movie file.

Truncated: Because of good feedback and because I think it looks interesting, accepting for publication.

To whoever is encoding: the (U) rom gives a checksum mismatch, but plays the movie fine, so I put USA in Game version instead of unknown.
