I'll start it off. It's easiest top use Japanese (since it's syllabic), but English could work in some instances, such as tomato -> tofu

The first word is Kitsune (just to make sure [people aren't just making up words, please add the English equivalent in brackets. In this case, fox.)

I think we can let this one fly, but in normal circumstances, the "e" would be considered a separate syllable in Japanese. 'Moe' is pronounced unlike the English Joe, and more like a combination of 'mo' and 'eh". In this case, a word like "Edo"(an ancient capital), or "Eki" (station) would be better.

Just so that you know, there's no Japanese word that starts with the plain old character 'n' (ん), so the rules of Shiritori say that you lose if you end a word with that character. Na, Ne, Nu, Ni, No (な、ね、ぬ、に、の) still work. Obviously, this is a language-dependent rule.

Oh, I'm just going to assume we're handling glides... with the same combination (しゃ, in this case)? You could do last full character (し) or glide character (や), from what I hear. So with that...

射撃 (しゃげき) - Shooting fire. As in, gunfire, or shots fired from a bow.

Good try, but remember to use the entire syllable. In this case, the word would have to start with "no" (の)
