1. I've played quite a few mafia games so far, feel free to look at my profile, I've got them all there.
2. I'll have an oral examination in March, but except for that, school's all but over, and I've got nothing to do after that, so I'll be able to post frequently from now until, say, September. I figure that will be enough.
3. I tried to learn some Hiragana characters at some point, but I never quite got the hang of it. I might try again, though. I don't speak Japanese (but I've watched Hetalia in Japanese, does that count?
). About history, I'm very interested in the history of Japan, I've read a lot about the Sengoku Jidai, the Azuchi-Momoyama period, the Edo period and the Meiji era, which are the ages I'm interested in most. I've also read a bit about the Gempei war, Japan during WW2 under Hirohito and modern Japan, but not that much. I've also seen some Akira Kurosawa movies playing during that age, i.e. Kagemusha, Seven Samurai, Hidden Fortress, Yojimbo, Sanjuro and Throne of Blood. I've also seen the first half of Last Samurai, but I never got to watch in fully. I've seen a few Yakuza-themed movies as well, but I don't know how accurate they are.
I don't know that much about present-day Japanese culture, I've never been there, I've watched one or two documentaries at some time, and I've read a bit, but not much. I'm more of a historican, really.
32 slots, that's rather much, I think. Sounds like you've got a lot of work ahead. I'm really excited about the game, and I hope I'll manage to get into it. The characters sure do look good.
I'm playing as Patrick Nash, Nuclear Engineer, in jamesn's and Tammo's Red Menace Mafia
