GameCritics: I thought my experience with Japanese role-playing games (JRPGs) had inured me to their flights of fancy—the bizarre plots, the random settings, the excessively sexualized female characters. I had gotten used to it for the most part. I even began to accept that as I started each new game, I was inevitably going to be submerged in strangeness. There was no use fighting it. Then I booted up Mugen Souls and discovered that I was going to be playing as Chou-Chou, a god not simply satisfied with having created the various worlds of a galaxy, but who also wants the denizens of those worlds to bow before her awesome perfection. How does she intend to go about this? By flirting with them.
