The irony here being the Japanese themselves wouldn't give a shit. Hell, they might even like your stories.I'd have these harpies out for my head.
As an aside, I wonder if a novel like Stormdancer could be published nowadays. 2012 seems like a different century at this point, doesn't it? TBF Stormdancer was silly, the attempts at Japanese were apparently straight outta Google Translate, and, yes, even then there was REEEEING about cultural appropriation. But in that era apparently safely confined to places like, well, GoodReads.
