Simulation game

Tanj˘ Debut is another Raise and Simulation game by Nec Avenue and HeadRoom. Like other similar titles, including Sotsugyou Graduation, the player takes care of a group of three student girls. However, this time around, our girls do not excel in high-school. Our new comers are instead making their music debuts and the player is given the chance to manage the 'trio' and bring them to the top to become real japanese "idols". Each girl obviously has her own qualities and personality and figuring them out is certainly the biggest part of the challenge. Also, be warned that a strong knowledge of Japanese is needed to get the most out of the game.

This PC Engine version can use the Arcade Card System to speed up loading times. However, the game seems to work fine with a standard System 3.0 card.

Tanj˘ Debut was first released in 1993 for Nec's PC-9801 japanese computer . It then came out a year later for the FM Towns (first CDRom version of the game) and PC Engine system. Tanj˘ Debut must have been quite popular in Japan in its day, a two episodes OAV and comic books even came out in 1994 and numerous audio CDs, including Soundtracks, Vocal Collections and Dramas were published from 1994 to 1996. Several other games were of course released, like Tanj˘: Debut Pure (3DO, 1996), Tanj˘ S: Debut (Sega Saturn, 1996), Tanj˘: Debut (WonderSawn, 2000).

Before reality TV jumped on the Idol bandwagon, Japanese video game designers already got players to manage their own virtual singing wannabes. Often considered "Otaku materials", those 'raise and simulation' games (and even their very nature) are totally unknown in the west. Anyway, as usual with most of HeadRoom's productions, Debut offers some amazing graphics and animations. However, a strong knowledge of japanese is needed to fully enjoy this title, reading but also, and foremost, listening. Girls will most of the time directly talk to the player and express a variety of feelings and moods. The game is interesting (without being outstanding in the genre) but the singing and music Idol side of it just doesn't really make my day.
