eXceed - Gun Bullet Children shares a very valuable lesson. Anime is not just a land you buy tickets to with every game, animated series and manga, it is also a state of mind.
Allow me to explain. Imagine you were given a train ticket for one dollar, but upon using it, you discovered that it will only take you to the darkest, grimiest, least kawaii neighborhood that you can only view through your spectacular 2460x21000 75 hertz computer monitor oculus face spectacle rift (or totem) modified for use with that one vocaloid make-out simulator in the decidedly un-moe blurry resolution of 640x480, and upon arriving your motor abilities suddenly cease to function under all the stress of this vile, dark, less than acceptably kawaii place.
However, you will soon realize that the ticket, the location, the sudden loss of your ability to walk or see clearly, none of it truly matters. All that matters is that you are at one with the anime again. Upon this realization, the spirits of the anime dimension will reveal that this was merely a test of your faith, and as a reward, they will grace you with valuable digital trading cards to sell to people for ten cents so that you may build up more pocket change for your next trip. Additionally, this will increase your odds of some day acquiring a booster pack, which you may then digitally open with your digital fingers and pray to the digital gods that you did not get any digital duplicates.
The unfortunate part of all of this, though, is that the game is bad and you should not buy it.
