I like SMAP; they're fun! :) I think they are sincere in trying to lift people's spirits through their concerts, music releases, dramatic work and charitable efforts.

I'm happy for X Japan; I hope their tour goes well ... It would be fun to see Seikima II do the same!

Awwwww ! . . . (I like SMAP, but the comments are pretty funny.)

Unfortunately when I read this headline I assumed the story was about the far more interesting "SMAP," the Soil Moisture Active and Passive mission which NASA will undertake in 2015...

: D

I guess if my life was one endless concert/event/promo/video/C.M./guest appearence/show (which I'm forced to do by some corporate exec that pockets 9/10ths of the profits) with the same four guys I'd eventually want to strangle them too...

: P

Wonder if anyone noticed that SMAP is Pams spelled backwards...

. . . ...

They still exist for so many years, up and down, what a milestone! You go men...

I agree.

I think SMAP deserve some time off for the sake of their mental health and a fulfilled life.

When you're screaming a bandmate's name in the middle of the night in a park it's time to meet new people, and Shingo sings "Here Is Your Hit" ("that's not how I wanna be...") with a lot of sincerity!

Posted in: Would you like to see Taro Aso replaced as Japan's prime minister, and if so, who do you think would do a better job? See in context

I think Beat Takeshi should be the PM.

He could do it -- if only he would!

Kitano Takeshi is the perfect candidate for it... (^^)

Yes, he's the people's candidate.

Posted in: 'Homeless' hone their rough-living skills See in context

Why do Weekly Playboy and Japan Today make a joke of homelessness?

In this day and age, no one's basic needs should go unmet.

It's a shame -- it's not an "experiment."

what "Beat" Takeshi offers on any level

Well, based on what I've seen of his movies (actor, director, writer, editor --, his interviews (print and film, i.e.:, various books (humor, commentary, short stories, poetry, novels, autobiography, sports, art), his tv shows (comedy, news, commentary, education, drama -- "Ano sensô wa nandattano ka - Nichibei kaisen to Tôjô Hideki"!), his artwork, singing, stand-up, tap-dancing, etc., there seems to be a lot. I think he's a self-made man, an independent thinker, a creative visionary and a good person. With his experience and sense of humor, he could be the Prime Minister of Japan! : )

senseless variety show where you wear the uni grad hat and gown

"Coma University Mathematics" entertains with and encourages an interest in math; not an easy feat!


A 4 1/2-hour exploration of war shown on a holiday is a call for audiences to think about the past and future.

Oi, Beato! The world is waiting for you!

Yes... Thanks, Takeshi, for your challenges, humor and inspiration; may they continue.

I always thought Beat Takeshi ran Japan...

He ought to run the country -- a thinking man with imagination, a sense of individuality, creativity and drive.
