What's the difference between Anubis and 2nd runne and Z.O.E. and Idolo?
I know it's kinda newbie but I can't find answers anywhere.

Anubis: ZOE 2, Japanese version
2nd Runner: ZOE 2 American subtitle

regarding differences, I recall that only some small parts were changed.. mainly some small fan service. Nothing major.

Idolo is a movie (OVA) placed in the ZOE universe, it deals with events prior to the first game. And ZOE, well, the first game.

Hope that answers your questions.

Thank you.
That Idolo's sountrack that comes in one of the box sets reffers to the movie?
Do you know japanese? can you link me to a japanese alphabet or something?

I have basic Japanese knowledge. regarding an "alphabet" I guess you should start here:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hiragana

The soundtrack is not a full OST, it has themes from the game if I recall correctly. I'll let you know tonight.

Is hiragana the writing system used on the games?

Author:  Artemio [ Mon Jul 25, 2005 8:58 pm ]

Nowadays, all three are used. In the 8bit times, Hiragana or Katakana only games were commonplace, in order to save space.

But in the game covers I believe there was more kanji, am I right?
What's the use for kanji? I know hirgana is the first alphabet, katakana is for imported woelds, what about kanji? what's it for?
I've already learned a,i,u,e,o!(hiranaga) :grin:

Commonly used Japanese words often have their own Kanji. A single Kanji represents one whole word.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kanji

Kanji are used for almost everything, and hiragana is used to indicate the inflections of the verbs (tenses, etc) and "particles" that unite sentences. Hiragana is a fonetic writting form, and since whatever you write in kanji can be read, it can be written in hiragana. In old games hiragana or katakana was the only writing you'd find due to the limited resources. But nowadays, it is a combination of Kanji, Hiragana, Katakana, Roman alphabet and arabic numerals.

Maybe Osiris or Undaunted that do knos Japanese can give you a better explanation.

I got it!
Kanji symbols are way damn hard to memorize.

Another doubt.
When I'm going to read something like game covers, spine cards and such, do I read from left to right or right to left?
This is being confusing I'm learning to read it from left to right because the author probably made it to be easier for latin derivated speakers, and now I'm not sure how to read properly.
Thanks for the attention of you all.

It can be in any of left to right and top down.

The only detail I recal in particular is when you save Ken, and drag her Orbital Frame away from heat. If you left her clos eto heat for a long time, and then went up fast, in the intercomm conversation she would be wearing just the top, not the full suit.
