The only thing I'm worried about is the siege event.I'm hoping it's nothing like clan creator in Yakuza 6/Kiwami 2.

Maybe this thread could be pinned? It's worth referring to periodically. Thanks ShenGCH for documenting everything so thoroughly.
The pleasure is all mine, dude. I'm sure there are pieces of information I have missed, despite my best efforts, but it certainly won't be a lot.

Legend. Thanks for keeping this thread so up to date!
Don't mention it, man. I just wish I could find all the correct sources. Some of them have seemingly disappeared from the face of the... Google.

Isn't Niaowu a renamed Chobou?

I wondered about this too as 鸟舞 is pronounced Niaowu in Chinese, as is 鸟屋... I figured Choubu was a Japanese pronounciation which makes little sense as everywhere else like Bailu stays true to Chinese. Oh well.

I am going with the assumption that Niaowu is NOT Chobu considering there are signs in Chobu that directly refer to it as Chobu. Ie "Chobu Shoes Center"
