The gameplay is easy and I think it is more appealing to the original anime fans than the newcomers because the gameplay is a ordinary turn-based battle. The gameplay do not require that much of strategy. So the playability is not as high. The transition screen is quite lag and often result in a black screen for a few seconds.
But on the other side, the atmosphere of the game is quite good as the music changes during different stage of battle.
Will recommend it to the fans of the original anime.
