This is an RPG. Apparently it’s one of those fabled wacky, or, dare I say it, quirky RPGs. I don’t know much about it, except you attend this school, and you can join clubs, and gain abilities from those clubs, FFV-style. So cool. Yeah.
The Adventures of Hourai High is a silly little RPG, with a Dragon Quest combat presentation, a Final Fantasy 5-ish class system, and a sense of humor straight out of Earthbound. You can tell that a lot of heart went into the creation of this game. It’s quite charming!
Translation’s complete! Enjoy!

User Review Information
A middling game that's worth a lookReviewed By: Starstream on 05 Apr 2020
This JRPG is a departure from the standard swords-and-sorcery fare. Though gameplay is very similar to Dragon Quest and other contemporaries (go around and talk to NPCs to trigger the next story beat, equip items to improve attack and defense, front-facing turn-based battles, an overworld with random battles), it distinguishes itself through its trappings. It’s set on a high school island. Swords are replaced by bats and letter-openers; beasts and villains are replaced by renegade students, teachers, and . . . ghost trains? The game also tries its hand at humor. It packs some absurd elements, a bit of slapstick, and some pretty typical anime-set-in-a-high-school-style humor.
This game is really going to be a matter of taste. It all felt pretty standard to me. The humor didn’t really do it for me, and the gameplay, like most JRPGs, is nothing to write home about. The story and characters were pretty average, in my opinion. I would say, if you’re interested in a JRPG set in current day, give it a try. I’m warning you though, EarthBound it’s not; I’d sooner recommend you G.O.D. Mezameyo to Yobu Koe ga Kikoe, which is another JRPG set in present day.
