AT2 text overflow on the optional boss crashing the game.
Never got fixed.

You either have to abuse a bug to win that fight in one turn or play on an emulator because someone released a fix for the rom.
I thought that was Ar Tonelico 1? At least I recall there being an optional boss crash in Ar Tonelico 1 which was introduced in the English version.

That's 2. I don't recall 1 having any critical bug.

...okay after looking into this, I was apparently mixing up Kanade and Raki in my memories, which I consider to be totally reasonable as they look fairly similar and both are optional bosses.

The boss with the bug in 2 wasn't even optional.  I mean, there was an optional mode where you could fight her again and again and she would get stronger every time to unlock stuff and that whole thing was basically impossible in the US version thanks to the bug.  But you still fight her once during the story and you have to beat her within 3 turns or the game will crash.

Fortunately the story battle isn't really that hard and beating her within 3 turns is totally doable.  But still, you actually have the double whammy of a potentially game-breaking bug in a non-optional story fight and and entire mode full of shit to unlock that isn't even possible to do in the US version.

...and then there's a few parts in that game where they forgot to translate shit at all and literally just left in the Japanese text (in Japanese characters, not even romanized or something).  In additional to all the usual spelling and grammatical mistakes you often see in bad localizations.

AT2's localization was pretty much a complete disaster.

Oh shit yeah! I remember all those IPDs in Japanese.
Had forgotten about that.
