Masako looks OK but the emperor looks like someone from Blackadder.

I just feel sadness and sorrow for them. Pandas have more life choices then these two.

rcch - Bansai! May the emperor live 1000 years! He is 59 this year, and this may be a once (or twice) in a lifetime event for observers. This is the second enthronement that I've lived through, and I hope it lasts long enough to be my last. I plan to live another 30 plus years. Respect and sympathise with them, and many years from now may you look back on them as curious and ancient rituals that you can relate to those who have never experienced one. Let's hope that Reiwa is a benevolent and peaceful era.
