    I'd like to inform you that I'm moving to Japan in September and stay there for a long time (at least 3 years). This time I haven't been exiled (like to the unimportant lands of Elba :lol:), it's my own choice.

    This means that I'll have much less free time from that date. But no worries, I'll buy Civ5 anyway and I'll do my best to be active in the modding community.

    In the days before you move you should start a game as Rome and take permanent control of the Japanese civilization.

    Interesting. If I may ask: Is the reason for moving work-related, love-related or do you just want to be somewhere as far from home as possible? :p

    Anyway, I wish you a happy journey and stay there.

    There are various reasons, but the main one is that I won 2 scholarships

    My level is lower intermediate, but still quite decent for being self-taught.
    FYI I've never been an otaku/wapanese or anything like that. I have zero interest in manga, anime or martial arts.

    You mean: Wapanese like White Japanese? Like Eminem is a Wigger and Urkel is a Blerd (Black Nerd)?

    May I ask what do you study? Japanology?

    Congrats! Are they very good schools? I would think you wouldn't bother moving if it won't help a lot later.

    Make sure you don't die getting thrown on the rails of a train. I know someone who lived there for a year, it is crazy crowded.
