While neither innovative nor particularly refined, this JRPG attempts something new, introducing a "Pout Mechanic". Theoretically, this allows the player to play the game however they wish. Your "Pout" can be leveled up, while used at a low-level the player can do such things as make a battle more even by using their Pout to make one of the enemies go away.
As the Pout is leveled up, it can be used to shape the world in a more effective way. At one of the highest levels the player can completely bypass certain quests by Pouting. However, because pouting is such hard work, the player must rest to use the Pout in such an effective manner again.
