Is this really national news?

"Local" news yes. Hardly "National" news.

"Man"? Wrong. He is nothing but no-hoper street trash.

I hope karma gets this piece of scum, and he loses everything. Good on the woman for having the bravery to call the police on him.

Is this really national news?

With the lack of serious crime, yes. The papers have to report something.

That this is national news is a testament to the good character of the Japanese people.

Domestic violence is unfortunately a little talked about social issue in japan.

he probably couldn’t get it up, even though he’s such a BIG MAN for beating on his wife.

where do they manufacture losers like this anyway? They seem to be in an abundance

Wow I see the husband and wife has a lot of roommates!! Everyone seems to know what happened. Its two sides to a story the real story hasn't been told!!

Well, how was her behavior before the beating? I'm not one to judge, just want to know all of the facts.

Are you suggesting that there may be situations by which the beating was justified?

Is this really national news?

yes. And it should be. Bring this guy’s b.s. into the light for all to see. He should be humiliated and shamed for punching his wife.

Is this really national news?

Yes. Isn't it great? Other countries have so many murders daily, that this would never make national news. It's nice that Japan is such a safe country that there isn't so much other more terrible news that it would displace this.

With news like this I am surprised any woman wants to marry a man.

What about to see the other side of the story? Maybe women should be more carefully and reconsider their criteria how they choose their male partners.

There is no shortage of men of any age here in Japan who will never harm a woman and who are lonely and looking for a nice female friend.

If he doesn't like her attitude he can divorce her, she probably will have a better attitude with some other guy with better future prospects, i mean a better income.
