Maison Ikkoku is a manga/anime that you should go out of your way to check out. As for the PC Engine game though, if you’re not fluent in written Japanese, there’s probably no way you would be able to play this. You could use Google Translate one screen at a time, but that would be incredibly tedious to do over and over again.
With an IPS patch this might be a good game for English speakers, but in its basic form it’s like a Deja Vu or Shadowgate era NES game that you have to navigate through blindfolded. It’s a great series but it’s going to be frustrating as a game to anyone but the originally intended audience.
