Explain the main idea using a few of the characters and their descriptions, blown up to A4 size (or whatever size you like). For example, I used Kitty, Kyoko Fukada and Ai Fukuhara. I asked my JTE to choose one and not tell me, then I asked her questions.
Hand out the worksheets. The left hand side has male characters and the right has females. They are the same as each other. So, the first question could be, "Is it a boy or a girl?" Give the students a few minutes to get really excited about the characters. Do another example with your JTE, only this time using all possible characters. Get the whole class to follow and make sure that they understand.
Ask students to secretly choose a character. Students have to interview three classmates and guess who their character is. When they rule out one possible character, they put an X in the box next to them. There are three columns, the first for the first person that they interview, the second for the second etc. They use simple process of elimination, and we of course assume that the characters ONLY like, play and speak the thing that is listed next to them.
Then, go! Students seem to have a lot of fun with this.
