Well, as I said, PM2 had a full official english translation. The project was just canned before it was released, and the company has since disappeared. You can probably hunt it down somewhere.
The Monster Rancher series (outside Monster Rancher Evo/Monster Farm 5) is basically the same, what with scheduling tasks each week for monster training and entering tournaments/going on explorations. Monster Rancher 4 is the one which lets you raise multiple monsters at once, and bring 3 monsters into a dungeon for battles. Monster Rancher 2 is generally considered one of the best for the direct monster interaction, although with only raising one monster there.
There aren't a lot of other games which focus on the monster raising aspect, though. Most focus on collecting or grinding levels. Nothing else immediately comes to mind. Monster Rancher Battle Card Episode 2 (PS1) has the same weekly schedule mechanic, but it's a card building/deck battling game, and you are scheduling which tournaments to participate in.
