That'd work if the japanese language didn't have such a large number of homophones. It borrowed a lot from mandarin back in the day, but while mandarin retained its large variety of sounds the japanese kept simplifying till it became what it is right now. In the process those subtle sounds that differentiated the words where lost. Now you have words that sound exactly the same and you can only rely on context to understand what it is you're being talked about.

But enough about this japanese chat. Lets continue the eternal vigil till the patchs release.
