This has regressed as of an unknown version. In 0.145u4 (at least) the questions and answers are again absent.

MAME 0.97 was the last time that this game was fully playable.

MAME 0.98 and above has improved video emulation with white fadeouts and screen swipes, but the improvement ends up obscuring Hiroko during the "Taito" jingle and most importantly, the game's text!

As of version .145u6, white fadeouts are now accompanied by a solid green screen on top of them, so the emulation has become even more broken.

Game is not "Working" in its current state IMO, compared to version 0.97.

As for the text in MAME 0.97, the erroneous text displayed above the text window is just a duplicate of the text in the text window. More erroneous text below it occurs when there are multiple choice answer text at the bottom. Again, they are a duplicate of the multiple choice answer text.

Also, the text is being displayed correctly. I can read enough Japanese to play the game, and so far, it's all perfectly legible. I have not encountered any garbage text (...yet?)

If you really want to play the game on the current build of MAME, you can see the pictures/text to the questions/answers by pressing F4, and pressing Enter until you get to the Tile Map viewer.
Go to tilemap 3/5 and that's where all the "hidden" text/pictures are located.
