(A) Introduction
I've been a japanese student for 2 years so I decided to take a small 
project.  I started out with just translation of the opening and ending, 
but since that only limited it to the the japanese version, I decided 
to expand this guide to include what japanese characters say at the 
beginning and end of matches.    I tried my best to remain as accurate 
and coherent as possible, but I was unable to do that in some places. 
If you see any mistakes feel free to email me.  My address is 

Vocabulary--words that I left in japanese in the dialogue for various 

Zaibatsu--financial clique, giant family trust
