"Negative elements" include an assessment based on how long they have overstayed their visa, their failure to meet the conditions of their release from detention, and whether they have repeatedly caused a public nuisance in their community.

Very reasonable.

We don't know what percentage were unsuccessful but even an equivalent number would make over 500 hours at just ten minutes per application. 

That's exactly Japanese "transparency" way , Japanese people won't question them just trust what they do.

Special residence permission, 在留特別許可 can be used for various situation, for example parent and children who doesn't have valid visa anymore sometimes they already overstay for some time. However consideration were given, because if they go back to their countries, their children will get difficulty since they only can speak Japanese and already accustomed with living in Japan.

However in their residence card it 在留特別許可 status can't be seen, their parent will get 特定活動, Designated Activities in their card while children will get 留学, students.

easy, in the airport when a commies just about to enter, check his history tax record, i am sure they didn't pay tax for their salary in Japan. Just deport them right away

In 2022, special residence permission was granted to 1,525 people, according to the agency, with the minister deciding on their applications on a case-by-case basis.

So, we are expected to believe that the minister, even if s/he took a miserly ten minutes on each application, spent 254 hours in the year doing this. And this only for successful applications. We don't know what percentage were unsuccessful but even an equivalent number would make over 500 hours at just ten minutes per application. I would guess that the minister just signs off on the decision of a bureaucrat and these "detailed guidelines" are more for their benefit.
