I skipped Q1 because it asked about their instruments. It's very much a technical question, with only model names and numbers. However, if you want it I can list them. I also skipped a repetitive question about favorite drinks and a question about historical war generals because I thought it needs extended background information. But the same applies, if you want it translated anyway, please tell me.

*: The verb form used implies that someone made them do something. In this case, you can understand this as "Did someone tell you to/made you listen to music... ".

**: Probably a reference to something said on TV in the 80°Ń90's.

1: A drink which contains vitamins and caffeine.

2: Same as above.

3: Popular sushi restaurant chain with delivery services.

4: Hanafuda are cards. There are many games you can play using them.
