The situation has gotten both more ridiculous and more promising at the same time. Nothing I can talk about in public, of course, as it always is with Japanese people. Secrets are like their second oxygen. I've heard they actually have a single word now that means something along the lines of "hoard an item until you die and never let anyone see it".

Al was in contact with Charles and was supposed to send him the Deco stuff but hasn't. I'm not sure there is anything there we still need though, never heard anything about Flying Ball and I'm never spoken to Frank. Maybe you can get the ball rolling on those.
