I absolutely love Atelier Totori's look. Although I'm not a major fan of "anime style" visuals, I can't get over how much like a cartoon the game looks. It's impressive, at least when it comes to characters. The animation is spot on and many of Atelier Rorona's smaller issues are gone. It would be nice if the animation would carry over into story sequences, though I've grown used to the character artwork style of storytelling.
Environments are bland and not that appealing. Although they fit the game's visual style, I wish there was a little more to them than a couple of flat, pastel-colored textures.
Just to get it out of the way, both Japanese and English voice tracks are available. And, yes, I played the game with the English track, though I did dip into the Japanese track. The two present slightly different tones. English voiceovers are slightly more deadpan compared to the squeaky excitement of the Japan voiceovers. As always, this is a completely personal choice; both are excellent.
The soundtrack keeps the same upbeat melodies as Atelier Rorona. Nothing jumps out, though every song has its place within the game.
