I like it too.  it's definitely on the radar, but i've yet to pick up Arcana Heart 3, which probably is a higher priority...at least until i find out more about this game.

These $80+ imports are killing me though, and i got a big backlog of games to get through.

Played the demo. Deleted the demo.

The characters are lacking in animation and the controls are floaty and sluggish meaning the whole thing feels pretty unresponsive. Presentation is quite amateurish as well and there doesn't seem to be a wealth of schoolgirls characters to choose from. All feels very doujin. Don't waste $80 on this, get AH3 instead.

The demo was really disappointing.
There could have been something, i played more than one match with two of the characters that means there was some potential, but it didn't click. It lags way behind in the fighting games genre.

I thought the demo was pretty fun.  :) The game has depth to it, but is easy to pick up and play. I thought the controls were tight, and I like the whole look and feel of the game. The feel of it reminds me of early neo-geo fighters like Art of Fighting and Samurai Spirits. It's pricey, but I'll probably get it on release.

Vid of some decent play in the demo, for those interested:

Also, here's a good rundown of basic fighting system:
