The title of this game translates from Japanese as 'Mahjong Huge Nelton Tile Party'.
Neruton Haikujiradan is based on a Japanese TV show called 'Nelton Benikujiradan' which was a dating show that ran from 1987-1994 which was created by the Japanese comedy group 'Tunnels'. The show started a nationwide boom in matchmaking parties that were simply known as 'neruton' (the characters for 'tunnel' backwards). Various 'Tunnels' characters appear in the game.
