    Default Japanese DS games for a non-Japanese speaker?

    Name some plz. I already decided to get that one with cheerleaders, but what are some others? The wackier, the better.

    I've only got Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan (or the one with the cheerleaders as you call it) and Electroplankton.
    I've heard nothing but good things about Band Brothers though

    Band Bros. is easy to play without reading Japanese, but you'll end up staring blankly at the menus - particularly the song titles, instrument lists, etc. It might take you a while to wrap your head around it, but you could probably get by.

    Monkey Ball DS is pretty light on the reading, and everyone already knows how the game works, so you shouldn't have any trouble there.

    The only other two imports I have are Chokkan Hitofude (Polarium) and Pac'n Roll. Since those both got US releases, it would be rather pointless to comment on them. ;-)

    Thanks. Band Brothers looks like a good one. Guess I'll get that one and Osu! Tatakae! Quendan. I wish there was some weird dating sim type thing I could get into. I don't know why, but I want to play one.

    rainbow islands is easy to play, and it's in english mostly, but the game really sucks i was expecting a revamped arcade platformer, but it's been turned into a flying about game

    AVOID!
