Well let's just say if the story is good, I'm all for it. Since I take manga style just as another way of telling stories, thus I have nothing against it, it might be good. Might. That doesn't change the fact it DOES look like an attempt to raise paychecks :-/
I don't have anything against manga/anime, but when a iconic western series is being degenerated into a SNES style weeaboo puzzler, I get pissed. A port of M&M3 or World of Xeen is what the DS needs.
There is a distinct lack of western RPGs on the DS. Seriously.
