Can you read Japanese?

Who wants to help me out by telling me what these achievements and leaderboards say?





Thanks!

福は内,鬼は外, borrowed from Chinese, means "luck come in, demons go out", which is chanted in the traditional Japanese Setsuban ceremonies. Not sure what that has to do with openfeint.

Yeah the game is setsuban. I'm shooting peas at little red, green and blue guys.

I guess if I just keep playing, my numbers will get high enough for the achievements, would just be nice to know what the heck I'm aiming for/to do specifically

Ok I know on the leaderboards that the top one is your best score, the second one is the amount of red guys you kill.

And I got all the top score achievements.

Hi!

I'm taking a Japanese 11 course this semester so I recognize some stuff there. The first section in the second screenshot says "score". Unfortunately, that's all I can read because those more complicated characters are "kanji", an alphabet derived from Chinese characters, and one of three alphabets the Japanese use...

Edit: I see you already knew that, haha
