Is Segagaga worth importing if you don't know Japanese?

I've heard so many great things about this game, and it looks really awesome. But, it's entirely in Japanese. Should I get it if I don't know Japanese?? Maybe I can get a translation online?

Very Japanese text heavy. I don't know if there is a translation available for it, definately check online before you buy. If you don't understand Japanese, the game will be unplayable or very difficult to understand.
Very sexy hero, omg

if you don't know Japanese you won't go far...

by the way there's very cool dc direct box set that came with several extras with the game...
Good for the collection but play wise just get the standard release IMHO...

here are the pictures I found on YJ site...

The D-Direct version actually has a scene involving a drunken cartoon character that had to be cut out of the standard retail release. The non-LE D-Direct version has that scene, too, though. Plus, it's worth noting that the LE box did not come with that ultra-mega-cool Segagaga VMS, so it's really not worth trying to track down. It just came with a t-shirt a day-planner and a set of lapel pins shaped like all of Sega's old systems.

What in the hell is this? Sorry, but I'm so damn lost. What on earth is "SegaGaga" and why does it come with all these extras and all that?

Hell, I went far enough to import official Sega Maracas from Japan, I'll probably get this. But please, I MORE info!

Oh my god, the originality never ends. How much have you seen this game go for on average? That's just plain hilarious.

Apparently even Ebay doesn't have it. Where would import it from anyway assuming that the price isn't outrageous?
