Good for them. This is probably a better endorsement for Toyota than even its commercials--sorry for the overstatement. But good move Toyota.

Bring back Johnny Carson! Oops, can't do that. Conan O'Brien runs circles around Kimmel.

Posted in: Japan to host MLB season opener next year See in context

The Dodgers and MLB should lighten up a bit on curry favoring Japan. Getting a bit annoying.

I'm sure they are using the regular kunaicho staff for this task. Not exactly a Dentsu project.

Hello Kitty seems to have been doing fine without one. Is there anything Yoshiki doesn't try to latch on to?

The Shukan Bunshun article is long but reading it will shed a lot more light on what transpired.

If he really loved her (or him), he wouldn't give up so quickly. Nobody forces him to look at the social media drivel either.

Posted in: Kitano discusses new film on homosexual relations in samurai era, Japan's showbiz world See in context

He was very funny in his early days but after that became known for being overpaid and contributing very little to whatever program he was on. As for his movies...no thanks.

I guess they could have added "Stop Hamas!" but that would be asking too much.

Granted home-grown athletes take precedence but you'd think Japanese media would give her more attention, especially given how popular gymnastics are here.

Highly recommend the new documentary series

Ryuchell committed suicide at his office where he also lived. Note it was his own company as well. So it was not a protest towards a talent agency in this case.

Nothing but word salad from Meghan. Might as well use AI and create the same virtue signaling.

Go somewhere else then. Part of the charm is not having every single convenience of home spoon-fed you when traveling abroad.

Like most "celebrity" Soka followers she probably had little or no knowledge of what the organization is really like in Japan or how it is truly regarded. In any case, RIP.

Kitano has hardly any cred in Hollywood...makes you wonder.
