The game is still predominantly in Japanese (menus) and recently received a fan-translation to English as well.

Hello.

This game actually has an English mode in the opening Japanese menus. The fan-translation you mention only translated the opening menu to English and cleaned up the game's pre-existing English script (to remove some spelling errors and such).

One thing I'm unsure of because, well, I haven't looked: Are the in-game menus still in Japanese when you set the game to English? EDIT: Actually, the images at Hardcoregaming101 seem to say the answer is no. Only the opening menu is in Japanese in English mode.

UPDATE: Checked myself. It can be set entirely to English except the options at the title screen. While the classes (mages, fighters, etcetera) have Japanese default names, you can change it to English if desired using the rename feature.

I thank you for being vigilant regardless. :3
