The Adventures of Hourai High: Transfer Student Dramabomb is a Japan-only RPG released in 1996 for the Super Famicom. It's based on the table-top and play-by-mail RPG Hourai Gakuen no Bouken!!, borrowing the location, characters, and elements of the original text.

The writing and atmosphere are like a mix between Earthbound and a Rumiko Takahashi comic, while the system combines elements similar to FFV's job system and Persona 3/4's Social Links. Joined by a colorful cast of characters (some of which aren't even human), we'll be surviving a year in the oddest school in Japan.

About the LP

Thanks go to Aeon Genesis for releasing a translation patch for this game back in 2011.

Game text will be in regular dialogue while my commentary will be in italics.

This will be a 100% run, and I'll be showing off everything in the game.

No spoilers, please.
