Day 29: A game you thought you wouldn’t like, but ended up loving.
Y’know, I hated the Sakura Wars franchise for…oh, 7 years all because of the horrid TV anime. So when SLML was announced, I had a very lukewarm reaction. I knew the history of the series, how no games had crossed the pond yet there was a little fanbase crying out for it. As with many NISA or Atlus releases, it came with swag, and I planned to get it for the swag and maybe to resell when it got rare.
I didn’t really expect to fall in love with the franchise, eventually watching the rest of the anime OVAs (which ranged from good to utter trash) and importing the PSP ports of the first two games. I’m not as hardcore as other new fans, but I do like the series now.
