Int'l connection sea-mnl via nrt | booking from aa.com

Hello and good day, I'm new to flyertalk and I have a few questions about Japan Airlines. I'm planning on taking Japan Airlines from SEA to MNL via NRT with a 1.5 hour layover (on one PNR). Is this enough time for a layover? And if I check in my bags at SEA, do I have to reclaim and recheck it at NRT? I've read Japan Airlines' policy and other threads but I can't find an answer to this. Also, I would be booking this from American Airlines, knowing American is just doing a code-share on Japan Airlines. I read in earlier threads that fare classes N and O are unable to reserve seats ahead of time. The fare codes AA is offering for economy are Q and S. So would I be able to preselect seats once I book on AA and use the JAL PNR (from AA) on JAL's website? Thanks for your time and help!

1.5hrs is enough for transfer at NRT
Only need to pick up baggage at destination, no reclaim at NRT
Seat assignment is done by AA. Assignment via JL PNR probably won’t work on JL website as others have experienced problems
