A: @pekochin  久しぶり~
すごい!素晴らしい~。


I'm going to be picky, since your level is so high!
"So much so that.." is an incomplete sentence. You should join this with the previous sentence with a ";" or "--".
"...were very high; so much so that ..."

Similarly, the phrase "the code of honor and morals..." also needs different punctuation. A colon would work quite nicely.
"living by Bushido : the code of honor and morals..."
You could use a comma, but a slight change would be required.
"....was living by Bushido, which is the code of honor..."
