1. Each word has to be the first, a middle or the last name of an anime character.
2. Each word must begin with the last mora (syllable) of the previous word.
3. If you post a word with n as its last letter you loose.
4. Words cannot be repeated.
5. The vowel length is irrelevant. Long vowels are treated in the same way as the short vowels.
See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shiritori for further information about shiritori.
E.g. Satō -> Tobi -> Biwako
(You can also write Sato or Satou, because the vowel length can be ignored. But (besides the vowel length) you must give a correct name of the character. If you give an incorrect one you loose.)
For your reference, these spellings for long vowels are used sometimes:
aa - long a, ā
ee - long e, ē
ei - long e, ē
ii - long i, ī
ou - long o, ō
oo - long o, ō
uu - long u, ū
There are some weird words which don't follow this rule and e.g. treat ou as o followed by u, but we can ignore these exceptions in this game and treat them as if they weren't exceptions.
But watch out, because eii is e followed by long i, which is equivalent (according to our rules) to e followed by i.

i like Togusa he is the only member of section 9 not cyberized and he has a family unlike the rest and he is a good guy and good cop too, but Batou and the Major are my favorites in the series and movie. they are complex and real to me and the way they are put into situations that are very real and personal to them and fans alike. thats my 2 cents anyway.

I think this word is one of the exceptions I mentioned in the first post so I'll just treat ei as long e even if it isn't.
