Lol that'd have been fun, tho I was trying to play Enshiro as a very reasonable dude (as long as he's dealing with competent people). Tries to be quite formal too, brought up by Susumu courtiers. So hopefully it wouldn't have come to a conflict like that.
As for the secret mission... Quoting this from a message sent by a Daigotsu 6 ranks higher than me.
Diagotsu-san, By now you will have met Shimazu-san. He is an unusual member of our clan by all accounts, however his position of power has long proven useful to us, even if his prophetic betrayal could inevitably prove to risk the clan. However despite his eccentricities, we have found use for him. You may wonder for example, why he would select a group of Unicorn for this mission given historic tensions between our clan and theirs. That was at my suggestion after it became clear that you would be on this mission.
The Wake Angels have talents in fighters that all attempts to explain with technology and the Shimazu and Gyushi Shugenja likewise failed to shed any light upon via the kami. This leaves either Gaijin tech or a connection to the Spirit realms.
Given that we will inevitably go to war with the Unicorn in the not to distant future, this fact potentially holds the key to making sure the Lion stay out of this conflict. If we can prove that the Unicorn are in breach of Sakoku, trading with the gaijin not for information to defend the Empire but for their own personal gain, the anger of the Lion would either keep them neutral in the war, or perhaps even declare a separate war upon the Unicorn.
Or better yet, if we can replicate it, we can make our own forces stronger.
Do not compromise the mission Shimazu-san has given you. The Space station remains a top priority, as if it is unleashed upon the Empire, it will take years to undo the political fallout of having such a powerful weapon fall into enemy hands. But if you can, obtain an explaination of how the Wake Angels are able to preform the feats they can.
Remember Shourido, Diagotsu Katsu, Kaigun Shōshō of the 4th Spider Fleet.

That'd have been quite something. Especially how much Crab and Spider don't get along.
Really wish we could have gotten into some personal scale combat. Wanted to see everyone's reaction when the Spider started throwing around chunks of obsidian, or an obsidian Fist of Osawno-Wo, or an obsidian Katana of Fire.
Was also curious how folks would react to Enshiro's cyberarm.
And if he would ever fail the Willpower roll for Moon Lord's Curse
