This looks like quite an awesome game! I totally feel you Magus in your search for the perfect VN/RPG hybrid. The only problem here is that I'm not big on PC games. And by not big I mean I don't play them.
Depending on the cost of the game I might consider it. Too bad this couldn't have been ported to the PSP (not that I like portable games anymore than PC games...) or hell, release the PS2 version or something.
I'll keep my eye on this.
