reminiscent of conbini lately, whereby one has to 'engage' with the screen-machine, making purchasing anything very labour-intensive for the customer.... while staff stand by watching and giving instructions..... no wonder goods are so expensive! seems inefficient to me.

You clearly know nothing about working at convenience stores.

Posted in: Global talent, Korean-trained: K-pop's new recipe for world music domination See in context

Shameful and hypocritical industry plagued with gapjil, sexual favors, and racism. I stopped listening long ago after the music video by Red Velvet that had pictures of the atomic bombing in Hiroshima and 9/11.

Posted in: Whale meat is still not recognized as an ordinary food product. I want to spread the word about delicious ways to eat whale meat, even to people who have never tried it before. See in context

Jeepers. What whale meat tastes like is completely irrelevant. Stop the slaughter, Japan and Norway.

Better add South Korea to the list, while you're at it.

"A loophole allows South Korean fishermen who “accidentally” catch whales to sell them legally, helping support a thriving industry in certain towns."

Posted in: Is the AKB48-style idol singer promotion system limiting Japanese music’s global appeal? See in context

Korean girl bands look good and sound good, ie, are musically proficient. They look like women - as opposed to children -- and can swivel their hips and sing in multipart harmony.

I'm no fan, but it still means the Koreans are easier to look at and listen to than J girl bands no matter your nationality -- unless you're tone deaf who find children sexually attractive.

Too bad K-pop is plagued with gapjil, rape, and sexual favors. I stopped supporting the industry long ago and never will again.

Seems like fun and games until you learn about K-pop's relationship with gapjil and sexual favors.

Even the South Koreans don't bow this low.

Check any interaction between the Moon administration and North Korea.

Japan is already far, far above her natural carrying capacity in terms of human population.

Someone has never taken a train five stops out of Tokyo.

Posted in: Major Japanese bread producer begins selling croissants and cakes made from silkworms See in context

I sure do miss tasty, healthy bread. Japanese “bread” sucks.

Yes, I miss grease-covered Twinkies and oil-soaked garlic bread.

Posted in: Japan's local idol groups return to stage amid new COVID-19 rules See in context

A crooked tooth looks child-like, as in pre-pubescent. Creepy, if you ask me. The female K-Pop image, by contrast, is about young adult women.

K-pop is about gapjil, rape, and sexual bribery. I'll take crooked teeth over all that any day.

Posted in: Osaka Metro unveils new 'spaceship' design trains See in context

@Speed

I'm not a fan of forward and especially backward facing seats either. Going backwards makes me fill nauseous. 

Most likely, you can switch the back of the seat so you can choose which direction you face. It’s the same with other trains in Osaka and the shinkansen.

Posted in: Japan's hit 'One Piece' anime marks 1,000th episode See in context

Naruto is by far my favourite anime and has a special place in my heart. So I naturally started to watch One Piece ......and gave up by 200th episode. SO MANY FILLERS!

You should read the manga. There are no fillers (Well... unless you count the Foxy Arc) and the pacing is way better.

Posted in: Japan's hit 'One Piece' anime marks 1,000th episode See in context

It’s too bad that a lot of people can’t get past the cartoony character designs. The world building rivals anything on western TV. I heard someone describe Oda as having the imagination of an elementary schooler and the storytelling abilities of Tolkien. And despite the childish gags, when the story gets serious, it gets genuinely emotional. Every time a character’s backstory starts, I get ready for heartbreak.

Posted in: What do you think are some of the major differences between J-pop and K-pop music? See in context

I quit listening to K-pop after the Red Velvet music video that had pictures of 9/11 and racial slurs. Also because of the toxic fanbase, plastic surgery, blackface, gapjil, suicides, rape, and sexual bribery. The whole culture is sickening.

Posted in: 'Squid Game' becomes Netflix's biggest-ever launch hit See in context

It's not the fault of Korea if they are better in marketing themselves compared to Edo-jidai Japan when it comes to pop culture.

By marketing, you mean spamming unrelated trends and comments on Twitter with fanvids and looping music videos on YouTube while you sleep to increase views?

Fukushima is a big prefecture, and not all of it suffers radiation. It’s such basic information.

Posted in: Do you really need to wear toilet slippers when using the toilet at home? See in context

Toilet slippers in public buildings etc are disgusting. The idea of taking off my shoes and putting my feet into a pair of slippers used by countless others before me as they use the urinal turns my stomach. The idea that Japan is somehow a clean country really is a myth.

I have an acquaintance who once worked as cleaning staff for a hotel. She once said the crew wiped the slippers in the public bathroom with alcohol by hand every morning. Bless her diligent soul.

Posted in: Art event featuring 'comfort women' statue postponed due to protests See in context

How is it ani-Japan? 

It's more like anti-slavery or anti-sex trafficking or anti-bad manners toward others kind of a thing. 

No one see's this as anti - Japan but the Japanese.

These statues to me just says do not do this kind of a thing ever again.

They would be anti-slavery if South Korea wasn’t only interested in using the comfort women to spread anti-Japan propaganda. If Korea actually cared about the comfort women, they wouldn’t have embezzled the money Japan gave to them.

Everything in southern Florida suffers from humidity, tropical storms, and hurricanes. It’s not the commerce hub it used to be.
