I seen this and I thought more than a few of you might be interested in it: Doki Doki Majo Shinpan (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Doki_Doki_Majo_Shinpan)

As you may infer from the title, the game is Japanese and that is unsurprising, because a lot of bizarre types of games seem to originate there, lol.


The player assumes the role of high school student Akuji. He has been asked by an angel, Lulu, to locate a witch or sorceress (depending on which news outlet is doing the translation) that has snuck into his school. In order to find the witch Akuji must search the suspects' bodies for a "witch mark". The preferred method is by using touch (using the stylus to guide his hands).

Yeah, it does seem a bit odd.. but it is apparently more highly anticipated by Japanese gamers than the next Zelda game for crying out loud.

Anyway, it is probably not my cup of tea but I thought I'd let you all know about this. :)

Thats sounds pretty cool...I wouldnt play it myself....but to each their own.

I think oen should make a point first though that Witches in japan are not seen the same as in North America and they truly are seen as sometiems malevolant. Its a translatiuon thing as the closest thing to what the Japanese perceives as a witch is the english word 'witch' in its modern meaning.

If you've ever seen the anime "WitchHunter Robin" its like that... I mean sure there are good witches however but they're never translated as "witches" they're always translated as something else to give that distinction.

Has anyone ever seen though the anime film by Miyazaki, Kiki's delivery Service? Now THATS classic anime for ya :D.

The hubby says that one`s kinda Hentai (for the perves) since you`re a guy who gets to touch up girls. Japan`s full of those.

It`s pretty ickky if you ask me. But really, the Japanese think that Witches are these super hot chicks! I mean look at my avatar! LOOK!

Most anime Witches are all hot and smexy. It`s a weird culture over here. I should know I work in Akihabara (central of the worldwide geekdom).
