That drop down list should let you put in English if I remember correctly.

Fyi the top option says:

"Language:
[Japanese]"

Change that to English.

A bit dense maybe, but not unlucky :P
I think most people would have investigated the drop arrow before taking a picture and making a post for it.
The beta client config also defaulted to japanese and was easily switched.

Beta Config was in English for me, thus why i though otherwise. No need to come down on me like a ton of bricks.

It was an honest mistake. I would have probably had a WTF moment as well, but would have checked the drop down box.

It was originally English, but as of a certain update it turned Japanese until you changed it.

No selecting the language on the config changes the language for the all text in the game. I did it in beta just for fun.

Just have a bit of gentle fun at your expense, wasnt trying to be nasty :)

Anyway for future refrence the drop down selection list is a common component you find in pc software and on websites.
The arrow itself selects nothing and you can always click off to avoid selecting if the rest of the options arent readable.
The thing I have done in the past though is select an option not click off, then use scroll wheel and find I have moved my country to Azerbaijan or somewhere.

Really? Awesome, I just might play in Japanese then.

But then again, people might shout at me to hurry up if I take too long reading the NPC text though. ;~;

Does it change the Voices for your characters and in the Cutscenes? I'd love to hear what they sound like in other languages!

I think the voicing is in English for all versions. Could be wrong though.
