Just to add my two cents' worth: English is now a compulsory foreign language for Japanese students starting around age 10. My mother taught EFL in a Japanese school for more than two decades; at the very least, it's basic conversational stuff. Main problem is English is less consistent and less directive in its structure/syntax. However, English lessons only became compulsory for all schools in 2011, so I defer utterly to word of dev. :)

I have met a lot of people here that have done the school training and are not really at a conversational level.

But maybe I'm a hard judge, and I haven't met too many that have gone through the current system.

Hanako and the others graduate in 2008 anyway so too early for the current scheme

Most of my colleagues at work in Japan were older than Hisao & friends would be, but (apart from one or two exceptions) the only ones who spoke fluent English were those who'd spent a semester or two abroad in the US or Canada.

Cuz if they went abroad in the UK they would've come back speaking gibberish (/s)

What would sex with Hanako be like? Does she have any fetishes, would she be top or bottom, what gets her off?

If the girls were real, how do you think they'd react to their fan bases?

Hanako would freak out I guess.

Shizune would appear to have it under control but would freak out privately.

Lilly would be more like a "Princess Bubblegum" kind of character. "Of course I love you, but it is the same generic love I have for all of my subjects".

Not sure about Emi or Rin. Rin probably would try and start a band with some of the people and release Touhou covers. Emi would probably get an instagram account and have lots of photos of salad.

It's nice to see thoughtless questions get answered within the hour while important stuff that was omitted from the story during its subversion goes unanswered for a full week.

Um excuse me Emi's instagram would also include a lot of post-run selfies with hashtags like #motivation and #goldmedalorbust or some such nonsense (possibly also #blessed, but even she'd be using it ironically).

I know what my writing prompt for the next Secret Santa is going to be.

On another note, I did a quick search but couldn't find the answer, so I apologize if I missed this here or in the game as well.

Was there any thought as to where in Japan Hisao lived before he came to Yamaku, or was that seen as unimportant?

How do you feel after KS after all these years? Do you remember it with nostalgia? And how do you feel about the forums not being as busy anymore?

Also sorry for asking all these questions that someone else has probably asked before
