Some other people have noted the name. I thought in English "slut" was a derogative term for a certain type of woman. Does it have another meaning? There is one here in Shinjuku, but I don't want to go in.

Posted in: Padres' Darvish shuts down Mets again; Braves erupt for 8-1 win over Ohtani See in context

Glad to see Darvish in the news again! I think Otani is great, but Darvish has been overshadowed by Otani for too long! I remember when Darvish was the center of attention.

Posted in: 'Thrones' and 'Rings' fans ready for battle as Comic-Con returns See in context

I went to the Tokyo Comi-con about 10 years ago. There were all these booths promoting various comics/manga. There was also a military recruiting station for the Self Defense Force. The attendees were all dressed as their favorite comic characters, and well more than half of the guys were dressed as their favorite female comic character. I wondered how the recruiting station was doing.

We should probably not pass judgment until we see a picture of what she had done to her eyebrows.

I haven't seen Darvish in the news for quite a while. The news is dominated by Ohtani. Why?

Please don't say "simple to make". That will give other mental cases ideas.

Posted in: Former Prime Minister Abe dies after being shot while campaigning in Nara See in context

I strongly opposed many of his ideas, but at the same time, his being shot is a great tragedy for Japan.

Posted in: The thinking that homosexuality is some sort of illness was rejected years ago, so the clear inclusion of such a passage is, to me, an expression of prejudice and animosity. See in context

Totally gay gokai now knows for sure that the LDP is living in the 18th century. I guess a lot of people here knew that already, but now I know too.

Cohen's "Hallelujah" is one of my all time favorite songs. The versions by Alexandra Burke and a young Jal Joshua are my favorite versions. Give it a listen on YouTube!

Except for Osaka, all these top 10 cities are Caucasian cities. Does that influence the evaluation criteria? Easy for whites to live there?

Posted in: Osaka court rules same-sex marriage ban not unconstitutional See in context

Just interpret "both sexes" (両性) to mean both sexes of the partners, which could be "male and female", "male and male", or "female and female". This means "both sexes" of the partners.
