bad, badder and worse. They take a popular manga/anime series and try to to change it to cater to American tastes that are used to Disney and/or Marvel or DC comics type storyline. that's why they screw up the story horribly.

I know of very little Japanese music artists that actually base in U.S. to really try to make it big. Most J-Artists or bands/groups just tour the U.S. in either small lives/livehouse or invited to play for a couple of concerts. Big or small music acts by big record/management labels or even indie bands have small fan base in USA which is why they tour the US. but none have really put in the effort or dedication to make it as an artist in the US music scene. That's probably because the Japanese Music Market are so profitable that they don't need to travel elsewhere. Pop idol groups aside, there are plenty of indie bands or those lesser known artists signed to big management labels that tour Japan, Asia, Europe, North America and South America yearly. these artists barely break into the Oricon charts, but are popular in the indie scene, playing small live gigs from 200 to even 5000 audience at a time all across Japan. There the ones that actually tour Europe, North and South America more so than the big label groups. I'm not just talking about the Visual Kei bands.
Now with K-pop or Chinese music artists, I'm not sure, they also probably played concerts or event geared towards their fans just like J-music artists does, but none really put in the effort as well, do they?
As for those who said that there is no talent in Japan, are dead wrong, just look past the idol groups and you see talented pop acts, J-rock bands, and Japanese musicians who make good music.
Being from the US, I'm tired of the crap I hear on radio and tv. there are a few talents here, but most are also crap and talentless. I enjoy exploring music from around, from Europe to Asia, I seen crap everywhere, too. But I also find some I enjoy. I'm not a fan of AKB48 nor Johnny's, but I do like some catchy songs and some goods one from SMAP and Arashi.
I like L'arc~en~ciel, EXILE, GreeeeN, ZARD and SCANDAL, just to name a few.

The zoo explained that it is “extremely difficult” to determine the sex of a spotted hyena from the appearance of its external genitalia.
from wikipedia ".......and the presence of a pseudo-penis in the female. It is the only mammalian species to lack an external vaginal opening.
Although the genitalia of the male spotted hyena is typical by mammalian standards, that of the female closely resembles that of the male; the clitoris is shaped and positioned like a penis, and is capable of erection. The female also possesses no external vagina (vaginal opening), as the labia are fused to form a pseudo-scrotum.

Exactly how is a piece of clothing accessory can cause such a debate and divert from the real issues at hand is beyond me.

Posted in: The extended use of interpreters by Japanese players (some, for their entire careers) needs to be looked at closely and a pragmatic policy put in place by the league to manage a situation that will on See in context
They wanted to play baseball in MLB, using an interpreters or not is irrelevant. Whether they wanted to rely on interpreters or study english for their own benfits is their own choices, why should others get involved in it. It's between them and the clubs they play for, not a rule or regulations.

Shinji Okazaki of Mainz, Hiroshi Kiyotake of Nurnberg, Gotoku Sakai of Stuttgart, Hiroshi Sakai of Hannover 96, and before they were injured, Makoto Hasebe of Nurnberg and Schalke 04's Atsuto Uchida. They are all regular starters for their respective clubs this season.
Okazaki is Japan's best goalscorers with 14 goals in Buli.1

other then the skills for nursing and to care for the patients and seniors, the utmost importance is communication and language. they need to be fluent in Japanese, as well as understanding of Japanese customs and culture.

Posted in: We need a system to make it easier for Japanese women with special expertise such Self-Defense Forces officers, doctors and lawyers to participate in overseas activities for international peace. See in context
But they still need to increase and improve the capabilities of their armed forces to protect and maintain the peace and the territories where they're planning to send these women (and men) to anywhere in the world. Remember the In Amenas hostage crisis? 10 Japanese died in the terrorist attack. The govt needs to ensure their safety.

Problem with commercial whaling is that there doesn't seem to be much of a market for it. Where is the demand? It's not very big. It's not like it's tuna, which is the global demand, especially with the popularity with sushi and sashimi.

Japan needs the power to protect itself, it's people and it's territories in the 21st Century. United States won't protect them forever. Unless these people want to end up like the Tibetans, the Uighers, or recently, like the Ukrainians, they need an armed forces that are always ready and willing and capable of defending Japan. to do that, they need to enhance their capabilties, improve their technologies and Collective Self-Defense plan is the first step.

Wow, and here in the states we're still stuck with McD, BK and Wendy's (Wendy's is my favorite out of the three).
I hope to sample the Mos Burger and Freshness Burger chains. I especially is intrigued with the Rice burger. I have to try it for myself before I can make an opinion, but I do love rice.
