It's similar to a strategy rpg, cept everyone's at pre-set levels so it's mostly strategy and no grinding.
The entire screen is like a giant "ATB" bar where the character icons in the back all scroll to the left, and whoever reaches very left gets to Act.
All I'm doing the entire battle is knocking back enemies away from it and never getting hit while racking up an insane chain combo multiplier lol.
On a different note, the comedy in the game is great. I'll upload and translate a scene some time or another.
