The whole PS2 / modding issue is quite an annoyance, isn't it?  I'm still impressed that the only "mod" devices will only played "copied" imports...which isn't an option for games on DVDs (and really only encourages pirating).  Paying the import price for a second PS2 when most games I'll end up playing will likely be domestic is quite obnoxious... ~_~  It seems that Sony has "solved" the wrong problem in copy-protection....

They should just import and translate all the good games.
Obviously, if it's cost affective to put territory switches into the system quite a few people are importing. If they were to just import and translate the games while using the media blitzkreig technique they used for the marketing of the PS2 they could make a shitload of money. Since, if i'm not mistaken, Sony gets royalties on all game sales.

Well, I put the game in and played it for a few minutes just to make sure it worked and to see what it was like.  I didn't actually save yet, though.  Anyway, while there were two anime intros (however similar they were) in the first game, there is unfortunately not even one in this game.  There's only one intro sequence, and it shows the portraits of the characters along with some info.  Interestingly, PLAYER and Xenos from the first game are among those characters, but none of the others are.  I wouldn't be surprised if they showed up at some point or another during the game though.  The one intro sequence is accompanied by a vocal opening song though.  Not as catchy as the first one, but maybe my opinion will change if I hear it a few more times.

Once I actually started the game, the most notable difference was that the main character already had a default name (not PLAYER ) AND he's not mute anymore.  You still make choices for him, but he's actually voice acted now.  The battles also are less "English friendly" since the menus aren't all in English anymore, but that's not that big of a problem.  I'm guessing all menus will be like that, although I didn't get that far.

Anyway, that's as far as I got.  I'll be playing it more soon though.

So far I've noticed the consensus has been that the second game, while good, isn't as good as the first game.  Everyone's expecting big things out of three, though, particularly since Kadokawa Shoten is involved (I'd expect not only an anime intro, but anime clips interspersed throughout the game in III, as that's KS's style).  Plus, three will have the same story branching path system that Der Langrisser and Langrisser IV had, where you can actually become one of the bad guys, so to speak.

Oh, and the player's default name is Wayne, just in case you didn't know =).

Didn't you guys say that Growlanser games are in Japanese?! If so, then what's the deal??

I mean, why does it seem that you guys are playing an english version? Can you interpret enough Japanese to play them, or are you keeping a secret from me?!

Nonononononono, they're in Japanese, it's just that the menus in Growlanser are in English (with Japanese translations at the bottom of the screen).  Believe me, the games aren't in English.
