A T-Rated PSP game released in 2010, developed by GungHo and brought to you by Aksys Games. Mimana Iyar Chronicle blends the traditional RPG elements of vast map exploration and treacherous dungeon spelunking. Engage in fast-paced battles in a quasi-3D environment where you control the character's movement and actions, and strategically command your party to turn the tide of battle. Your actions dictate how the story unfolds, through numerous fully-voiced event sequences.
This game provides examples of the following tropes:
- Accidental Pervert: Crais gets into this more often than he would like to.
- And Now You Must Marry Me: An interesting solution to the Naked First Impression, see below.
- As You Know: Defied, zig-zagged and invoked at various times. See also Breaking the Fourth Wall below.
- Breaking the Fourth Wall: Occasionally.
Melrose: "Why not just show the scene where Crais explains everything? Is this writer really this lazy?"
- Covert Pervert: Melrose and her penchant for ripping people's clothing off For Science! does come off as an example.
- Evil Is Not a Toy: How the gang sees Melrose. "Bad Melrose! No summoning evil gods!"
- For Science!: The reason Melrose does anything, from gushing about the library to, well, insisting someone takes their clothes off so she could "study" them.
- Harem Hero: Crais ends up as a Type 2.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Crais is this trope personified.
- Mobile Maze: One of the forests you must go through is not only mobile, YOU can (and must) control its changes to progress through.
- McGuffin: Sophie's magic gems.
- Morality Pet: Sophie quickly becomes one for Crais.
- Naked First Impression: How Crais meets Tinon.
- Ragtag Bunch of Misfits: A mercenary spellsword, a priestess, a scholar, a warrior princess...
- Scary Librarian: Offend Melrose and her love for books, and this is what you end up with.
- Self-Deprecation: The official English trailer for the game lampshades the Unwanted Harem and overall silliness of some of the plot points, as well as pokes fun at the game's voice acting ("Celebrity voices impersonated"). Reportedly, that amateur look is intentional.
- Shout-Out: Oh so many.
- Melrose's mission is to "seek out new things and old, mysterious, civilizations".
- The Lost Lenore: The reason why Crais turned into a jerk before the events of the game.
- Unwanted Harem: Crais's companions quickly turn into one. And all of their motives are at odds.
