No way! I worked like hell to get that grade, cramming like crazy at the end there.
I'm not sure how Yumi got the top idol spot though, when Sachie had 99 on everything except singing; and her dancing was like 30 something. I'm pretty sure Sachie had more DVD's/CD's out as well. Maybe since I got Yumi first and she produced a CD first, while I got Sachie third or something... well whatever.
I think the difficulty is just fine the way it is. I'm starting my third playthrough soon, gonna try to get the Austrailian model girl this time. Maybe Chisato too. I donno, I don't like her that much.
Oh, there's one that I have simply no clue what's going on with.
The Bus Stop area. There's a big bus, and I think that some townspeople talk about a model or a bus driver knowing a model or something, and I just have no clue what's going on there. Maybe I don't visit that exact spot enough.
And then there's also...
That guy that hangs out by the Gym guarding money or something that asks for food. I have no clue what most of the Japanese food contains, I just know that it restores my idols health... I suppose it's my own ignorance to blame for that, though.
How many Idols are there, exactly? Some guy says something like "There's at least 10 idols in the city, maybe more." I haven't gotten around to making sure I found everyone, but I'm just curious.
One random comment, I ended up playing with the music turned off most times (and had my own playing instaed) because it seems so repetative. Maybe a different music track for the city for each different day of the week? I suppose if you're using unique music, that might be a little much to ask, just throwing it out there. The game is already sweet enough. [[Plus in almost every game I ever play, I end up playing my own music anyway, so don't take this comment too seriously.]]
Oh, and my own random question; who was your favorite idol in your game?
Airi -> Nanako -> Erina -> Sachie
