Anyone who allies that dictator (fat rocket-man) is a threat.

Wish the system would punish these thugs but they won't get much more than a slap on the wrist.

That mascot looks so kimochiwarui. If I was young(er?) just by looking at that mascot I know I really wouldn't want to hear what they're gonna talk about.

Consoles face a potential threat from the advent of cloud gaming

Ha! No, they don't. You will never find a pre-owned game on a streaming device and the cloud depends on how fast your internet is (and hope much data).

So he will do it again after he finishes his current sentence and another innocent life will be wasted. To then, giving him another sentence when all could have been prevented in the first place.

Why the need to call "them" anything other than by their name?

Totally agree to that.

Would be so much easier to simply call them "gay" rather than LGBTQR2D2+++++.

Posted in: S Korea wants 'rising sun flag of hatred' banned at Olympics See in context

Hashtag #getoveritalready.

Or just don't come to the Olympics.

Where's the hatred towards the one country that's got nukes pointed at them? Where's the hatred towards starving their "fellow" Koreans and imprisoning them for life for simply listening to Girls Generation or watching an episode of Sky High? I thought people in Japan were baby crying adults coz many think that Japan was just a victim of USA (like I actually heard people saying "but Japan did nothing wrong"). But man! Little I knew how much more of a baby crying nation S. Korea is.

Wish the best for him. They need to stand up for themselves and fight back. Otherwise, these same students will be the same sararimen working 156 hours of overtime a month in Dentsu. Yes, the two cases are totally related because this is where it starts.

Posted in: Japan enacts law to introduce flexible working hours for teachers See in context

claiming school staff often cannot take a long summer break as they need to participate in training or oversee students in extracurricular activities.

And that, is the big elephant in the room. Well at least some people noticed but most decided to ignore it. Instead of having the math teacher who doesn't know anything about volleyball take care of the volleyball bukatsu, have a proper volleyball coach. And a basketball coach, baseball, soccer, etc. Have the teachers focus on what their jobs really are, teaching.

Posted in: Long hours of gaming adversely affect daily activities: survey See in context

I saw one poor soul playing games in two phone simultaneously the other day. 

Ha! That poor fella is not that dedicated, tho. Two nights ago a guy passed walking by with a tablet and two phones. I took a glimpse at what he was doing and in all three devices he was capturing Pokemon's. I'm guessing he was in his 40's or early 50's.

About time they rebuild this place. Love going to Harajuku and Yoyogi park. But I'd rather walk to both places all the way from Shibuya station than going through that hell of Harajuku station.

Funny. These perverts (the men) deserve everything they get!

Funny? A guy who's chilling at a park gets randomly assaulted and that's funny? And the "pervert" as you put it, is a 20 years old looking for sex, who's just a year away (months?) from being a minor in Japan. If looking for sex makes you a perv, everyone in this planet is a perv.

Posted in: What changes would you like to see in Japan's English education system? See in context

Cancel the whole program all together coz no matter how much they improve it, Japanese will never speak the language. That unless they see it as something that's essential or at least useful. Why is everything on TV dubbed into Japanese? The only chance most people would get to be exposed to English but that chance is wasted with reeeaaaally weird dubbed voices. Why? The amount of series and/or movies you could watch in English with closed captions (in English) it's very limited in Amazon and Hulu. That's another chance to be exposed to the language. Those are things that could be changed so people have more access to English. The education system? Ha! What a joke.

People and their weird diets. Like ordering a burger without the bun coz "I'm on a carbs diet" but then they have a massive piece of meat patty, cheese, BBQ and everything else but no bread coz "they're on a diet". Oh and "I want a Diet Coke with that". Weirdos.

Blockbuster and Tsutaya didn't pose any threat to the cinema. Neither will Netflix or other steaming services. The two (at home or the theater) are two totally different experiences.

Posted in: Gov't survey shows most convenience store owners overworked See in context

And yet, they keep opening new conbinis right next to each other. Just three days ago another brand new Seven-11 opened its doors in my city just seven minutes walk (at a slow pace) from the other Seven-11. And within that radius, both Lawson and News Daily being five minutes walk and the Daily Yamazaki just two minutes walk. I wonder how long will this new 7-11 management will wait till they start whining that they can't get enough employees, can't keep up running the business for 24 hours a day.

Don't forget to pack your Japanese passport when visiting the Southern Kurils; you are traveling to Russia.

I swear you're the biggest Japan hater I've seen in this website. Here's an article about rebuilding bridges and here's your trying to make it a political thing again.

Posted in: Police say body may be hiker who fell on Mt Fuji while live-streaming See in context

The mountain was closed but are people allowed to climb mt Fuji a different way? Or does closed mean forbidden to climb entirely?

The official climbing season ends the first week of September. But the mountain doesn't close. On the Subashiri side, only two huts are open until October 16th. After that if you wanna climb, like someone said above, you need to know what you're doing. And have the proper gear (crampons, proper warm layers and gloves, etc.). The mountain itself is always open. You could even snowboard into the crater at the summit and again, if you know what you're doing.

People need to understand that Fuji is not a picnic walk. It could be extremely dangerous even during the peak season. Two people died last year during summer (I unsuccessfully tried CPR on one of them) and two this year.

The damage was indeed so so compared to what was predicted for the size and power of that beast of typhoon.

Why would a comment like that be so offensive to anyone???

Totally agreeable. If you're fed (stupid) Chinese government propaganda, well... You are what you eat, right?

Last night's episode was even funnier. Not just coz Randy said "#$@& the Chinese government" but the part where the neighbor was trying to vaccinate Cartman was hilarious.

Posted in: 'South Park' creators issue mock apology over China censorship See in context

I know this should be "banned in China", but with "band in China", I don't get the joke. Can someone explain this?

Kind of the same as their latest PS4/Xbox game, "The Fractured But Whole". They knew they wouldn't be allowed to use the intended name so they used this one. Which kind of sound more poetic and if you've played the game, it sounds just right.

What was it that politicians and business owners opposed to the indoor smoking ban were saying, that restaurants would go to bankrupt if smoking was banned? Yeah... I mean, look at how bad this yakiniku (that doesn't even serve beer) is doing.
