    bamboo4At least, change the heading to "buchouhou" = 無調法.

    kadoka66Done. No idea why I wrote fu instead of bu perhaps it is cos I did it in a hurry.... :( Although the kanji can be 不調法 as well. According to my native Japanese friend who is also a teacher, either way of writing it is commonly acceptable.
