Stuck on Shakugan no Shana DS game

Okay, I’m playing the Shana DS game right now and I’m obviously stuck if the title didn’t already give it away. When I started the game it seemed to take on the effect of a visual novel. I have very limited Japanese skills so I don’t know what the heck is going on and what to do on that little spinning thing.

… Aside from that pain, the biggest pain is listening to the screechy BGM due to it being too sexy for my youknowwhatonthecomputer… (you know what I’m talking about). Actually, it’s the first RO… youknowwhat I ever got to play and work on it. Oh joy? *clap* I think I shouldn’t even bother anymore… I’d be absolutely thankful if someone were to make a fansub of the game like the mass amount of untranslated visual novels since the game doesn’t seem to be coming to the US anytime soon. That’d be dandy. ^^; … But I guess webservers can’t take it due to the supposed battle system in the game. ): Come to the US soon please! Or at least give me some light on what to do on that spinny thing. >_>;

Um, if someone were kind enough and actually played the game (or not), could someone tell me what’s it about and if it’s based on the light novels or has a story of its own? Because that was certainly never made clear to me!

I managed to take a few sexy screenshots though…

Seems to be such a nice game if only I understood most of it!

Edit: Nevermind. Found out that the game doesn’t follow the light novel’s story.
