7 Games That Are Perfect For Anime Lovers (But Aren't JRPGs)

8 of 8

Ensemble Stars 

The last game on the list is the Japanese-only game, Ensemble Stars. It's similar to LoveLive! School Idol Festival in many ways, though it's not a rhythm game. Instead, this mobile game has you collecting cards of various high school students and putting them into groups to get as much power as possible. You can then battle other players' groups, or play through events and earn more cards/currency. 

An anime has been announced for this game, but we don't have a solid release date yet. 

Because it's Japanese-only, you'll need to take some extra steps in order to play this game. Most importantly, you'll need access to the Japanese storefront of Google Play. You can get this by either using a VPN and a second Google account to gain access, or by downloading a program called QooApp that gives you access to a number of games from Japan, China, and Korea. (And yes, it's been deemed safe by its users.)
