[IGAS] The Senka Theme

Have you been thirsty for Romance of the Three Kingdoms?

Note: Each of the characters is named after a character from the classic Chinese Novel “Romance of the Three Kingdoms”.  The name itself seems to be reference to Senka (i.e. The fires/ravages of war) and Chuka, the Japanese spelling of a poetic name for China meaning “The Central Flower”. The Flower at War, as it were. But for simplicity’s sake, let’s leave it as Senka for the moment.
