There is nothing Japanese about Pandaria. If anything it's Chinese. Kthx

Wrong. Pandaria is an amalgamation of Asian cultures. Japanese names are just as fitting as Chinese, Korean, Thai, or any other name derived from an Asian country

But all of my character names start with "Hippo" and all of the Chiene names sounded weird with the Hippo- root. So I went Japanese instead.

I'm not creative enough for a Chinese or Japanese name, so I went with one derived from the catchphrase of a popular Nintendo video game character.

Which is kind of Japanese. Crap.
