More accurately: "Emperor Akihito was released from hospital on Thursday into the custody of the Imperial Household Agency"

Wishing him well - pneumonia is very tiring. Wind will be well knocked out of his sails. As he is not so young, recovery is going to take time.

Hope he feels better, stronger, faster. Getting old and sick sucks.

"Discharged", not "released". A person is discharged from hospital or released from prison. Please use the appropriate word.

Anyway, I wish His Highness a complete recovery.

Surprised to see so many people care about the emperor. Woulda thought more people are either apathetic or something.

As a continuation of history, and a cornerstone of Japanese culture, he is very important.

Just an old man in his seventies who has been sick. Not so deserving of apathy.

Look, Gyouza-sama, the Emperor is a symbol of the nation. If he is ill, the nation is ill, in a weird yet undeniable connection. Spare us your insensitivity.

Hi Ranger - put my comments into the right context - or actually read them. It is a response to someone else.
