I just grabbed Grandia from PSN for my PSP and started my first run. About an hour in, I'm doing well, but I don't quite understand how the battle-system works (meter in the corner, etc.).

Just wondering if someone could clear up the peculiarities of the system for me before I get too deep into the game.
