Description: the game is focused on learning English language through different mini-games. The player assumes the role of Chibiusa. The game is split into five or six days, during each of them you will have a meeting with one out of the five Sailor senshi. Sometimes there is an additional day with special events. The main goal of each mini-game is not winning, but learning new English words, so you'll progress through them disregardful of the fact if you are winning or losing. Each day you can meet one of girls via getting a phone call asking for a meeting, getting mail, or they can visit you personally. If during "alphabet song" you press "right" button you skip to additional menu allowing you to play games with any senshi you wish without schedule and without meeting intro.
