Posted in: Osaka body to decide what is or isn't hate speech See in context

Being known as a city that censors speech isn't something to be proud of. Osaka is the worst city in Japan already, don't make it worse.

Posted in: Japanese media self-censorship grows under Abe See in context

When the Abe regime starts directly censoring the media, I'll worry. If the media elects to censor itself, I only blame the media.

Posted in: Some fans love Pharrell’s 'It Girl' video; others call him a pedophile See in context

There is no "some" about the first part. MOST people loved it. An overwhelming majority of comments, blog post, and news articles has had nothing but good things to say. I think this is only the 5th out of hundreds of blog post/news sites to mention pedohile? Seems kind of ridiculous to humor the opinion of the small minority. I knew from the first time I saw the video an hour after it was released that this would happen. Let's clear things up now: IT'S NOT PEDOPHILIA! Even of he said he wanted to have sexual contact with her, it still wouldn't be. Why? A pedophile is someone with a primary attraction to children. What is the definition of children? A child. Child? "A person below the age of majority." KEYWORD: PERSON! Not drawing, not person-like, just PERSON. A person is a human. Are Anime characters humans? Nope! So is this pedo? Nope! Move on.

Posted in: The fuel for Japan’s pedophiles See in context

Technically, that isn't hold pornography. It's child erotica at worst...and let's get real: If pedophiles didn't have this garbage, you and I both know that they'd likely seek children around them to satisfy their desires. If Japan's child sexual a use rate goes up over the next few years, it'll be over the silly law prohibiting the simple POSESSION of CP. Sending people to prison for having images and videoes that they didn't make sounds kind of silly, doesn't it?

Posted in: Dollar breaks 110 yen for first time in six years See in context

I have mixed emotions about this. On one hand, it means I pay less for stuff I export from Japan and Japanese companies but on the other hand I'm not particularly happy about that if it means the company I'm buying stuff from suffers. A suffering company either shuts down, drastically increased prices, or stops offering to export stuff.

Posted in: Why do so many anime characters have non-Japanese names? See in context

This article is written as if most Anime characters have non-.Japanese names when in fact, less than half of all main characters use non-Japanese names.

Posted in: Violent video games linked to risk of crime, alcohol abuse See in context

So I have 50 studies that says there is no connection, and one that says there is....

I play GTA V Online, but I have no passion to act anything I see out and I hate senseless real life violence.

Good! I'm happy fiction isn't included. We need to protect the rights of human children, not colorful drawings.

Ok ok ok. Let me get this straight. A male child having sex with a female adult is not illegal in New Zealand but god forbid it happens in an anime and then it is a MAJOR crime? Dear god!

Posted in: S Korean media slam Abe's 731 jet photo See in context

Prime Minister Shinzo Abe needs to resign...again. He is making the Prime Ministers office into a giant international joke. In saying that, South Korea needs to stop complaining about every harmless thing that happens in Japan. WWII is over now, you don't need to be so paranoid about the most peaceful developed nation in the WORLD!

Posted in: Japan says it will honor apologies for World War II atrocities See in context

I am tired of people clinging to the past. That is the extended past. This is the present. Worry about the here and now and future not the past. Nobody in the WWII government is in government anymore. Quit it!

I feel much safer in Japan. Even in Okinawa, I feel safer than I would in the safest major city in America.

Posted in: Abe vows to change constitution, reestablish 'proud Japan' See in context

I am all for Japan making an independent Constitution but PLEASE don't drag silly nationalism into this. It never works out in the end and is often the death of a country or a countries era.

That is one hell of a conspiracy theory but utter nonsense and a complete lie.

Posted in: TPP or not TPP See in context

That sign is incredibly silly. One of the reasons is because New Zealand, not the US, is the father of this bill. Another reason is because that is a stupid scare tactic based of no evidence at all. I am not a fan of nationalism, seeing as history proves to us that is leads to nothing but bad news.

I like the Japanese government, but I am with the WHO on this one. I am pretty sure it is Japan that is underestimating the threat just to avoid public outrage.

The UN has to do something about this before all hell breaks loose. China is being a childish bully and Japan is trying its hardest not to rain fiery hell down upon them. Kudos to Japan.

This isn't pedophilia people. Note that the girls arrested were at least 16 years old. Not even close to the actual definition of the word "Pedophile".

Guns should be a privilege and not a right. America could learn a lot from Japanese laws.
