Is this from a console game? In that case, are you sure the puzzle hasn't already been solved and documented somewhere?

I'm wondering what the [TO] is doing there in item 5. Did they have the answers next to the questions and missed this one while deleting them for making the texture..?

Me too. And we were only given these Japanese questions/riddles , and the actual crossword fill-in boxes for the puzzle. I have an image of the crossword boxes if you want to see but they're bad quality sorta for a few numbers.

I'll leave solving the puzzle to you. As said, I'm not all that impressed with it :). You might've even been able to solve it by yourself with a sharp screenshot, an OCR tool and Google Translate.

Cheers aha! Tried Google Goggles & Translate w/ pics, screenshots and sketchings, but failed due to quality. Thanks so much though.
