    The symbol you see there represents Army but as the Japanese language goes one word has many meanings depending on your sentence. The way it's put out is quite different and alien to English.

    For example.

    English: I like cats.

    but in Japanese the sentence looks like this.

    Japanese: cats i like.

    So what you see could well say. Shogun Army / Shogun Force etc etc etc.

    Don't know if this helps, hope it does. :twothumbs:

    If your confused, learn Japanese. :upsidedow

    e: Shogun Audio Force. :wink:

    There is a website which you can use for practicing your Japanese. You talk to Japanese people learning English and your basically helping each other. When I find the site again, I will PM you the link, helped me out so I'm sure it'll help you out. :twothumbs:

    This might sound silly but watching films with Japanese audio while your reading and learning e.g 'Final Fantasy Advent Children' your mind kinda gets thrown in a state that you start picking up little bits of the accent.

    I still have trouble with the speech. like I would of thought nedachi is pronounced as Neda-She but it's actually Ned-are-tea.

    That's what I find fascinating about written Japanese, all the intimated and suggested contextual meanings. Former housemate worked out there for a year and showed me a quick intro into simplified typing on Skype - confused the hell out of me, but my mind's firmly wired to the Romance languages (French, Spanish etc).


    I do like this from the Pedia though:

    :D

    That symbol is actually my Chinese family name. It's the popular family name of 'Tan.' Not sure what it means tho.
