katsura is closer to the cannon because katsura said kore wa justaway da. (This is a justaway
which means the speaker (katsura) is closer
and gintoki said
chigau sore wa Neo Armstrong Cylone Jet Armstrong hou da (Wrong, it is a Neo Armstrong Cylone Jet Armstrong cannon)
which means the listener (katsura) is closer

Correct. Good Job. +2 points

koko: Katsura is closer to the cannon! Because when he refered to the Justaway he said "Kore" which means "this-close to him" but Gintoki said "Wrong, it's a cannon (full name you know)" and he used "sore" - which means its closer to the listener, which in that case was Katsura

Therefore, Katsura was closer to the Cannon! Hope that explanation even made sense, I got it though..

You got it indeed. +2 points

Spanish and Japanese are similar in that they both have pure vowels. There aren't huge amounts of exceptions to rules like in English.

EDIT: u think spanish is easier? i think spanish is more complicated..i heard Japanese language doesnt play the feminine/masculine role..
like la tarea..how can homework be feminine.. @_@ but i guess Spanish would be easier since it is kind of similar to English..
