I'd recommend Hearts, but it's import-only (or download onto emulator and play). There is a Script Translation so you can understand what they're saying (though it doesn't translate the skits) and guides that teach you how the gameplay works, but it isn't directly fantranslated like Innocence |D;; (One of the main reasons I got it was 'cause Tetsuya Kakihara voices the main character. I also heard good things about the battle system, which is different from the typical Tales of battle system, and I must admit it is pretty good. The characters are also lovable, too <3)
Eternia and Legendia also seem like good games. Can't really help on the Tales side of things 'cause I've only been able to play Symphonia/DotNW, Abyss, TotW:RM, Phantasia, and Hearts ><;
62. I can't give any recommendations despite owning 4 or so games from the Tales of series because I have barely touched ANY of them because I'm both simultaneously too unmotivated to turn on a game console and too busy offline to actually want to commit any time to video games.
Still, being someone who isn't a huge fan of KH
Haha. That's what I said before replaying KHII. It's strange though.. even though I didn't consider myself an actual fan until earlier this month I still had sort of played a few of the games and asked for a few of them for Christmas presents. Though none of them I had beaten until KHII and actually paid more attention to the story hahah.....
