This brings tears to my eyes, I can't believe it. I am three years older, I am 28. One of the best in the history of arts of Japan. Satoshi Tajiri be Blessed.

SCOTUS has no minimal idea of how bad Japanese justice system works as I can see.

Good luck Campbell dealing with China.

Posted in: S Korea to continue efforts to improve ties with Japan, says Moon See in context

I hail good relationships between all countries, despite past, despite present and future. I think that the recent Nagorno-Karabakh conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan shows what truly cowardly leaders are all about. Just send the kids to war while we are secure in a bunker. Both leaders of those two countries are nothing but worthless pieces of cowardice. I hail Moon for his efforts, not only with Japan, but also with North Korea. Moon is a clearly anti-war guy, who has always heralded talks and peace over aggression and militarism. That must prevail. Long Live Korea. Long Live Japan.

Posted in: Death penalty ruling finalized for 'Twitter killer' See in context

His defense lawyers had argued he was guilty only of the lesser charge of homicide with consent, saying he had his victims' tacit approval based on messages they sent him.

Ew, lawyers. You have the good ones defending just causes, and these ones, defending the indefensible.

My paternal grandmother's father was born 1886. He served in the First World War and died 1966, just knowing this amazing lady could have met him is moving. Live longer lady!

Posted in: 38% of LGBT people sexually harassed or assaulted: survey See in context

Wow. Seeing the comments is just shocking. Justification of harassment and assault, sheer homophobia and bigotry. Thank holiness my parents took me out of Japan at age 2 (if comments are representative of the Japanese of course).

Posted in: 38% of LGBT people sexually harassed or assaulted: survey See in context

I'm an expat Japanese (born 1992) and living abroad since 1994, and this surprises me, I didn't know Japan was like this to LGBT. I thought, by knowing that Akie Abe was a leading voice in supporting sexual minorities despite her husband's positions, that Japan was a safe haven. I am gay myself and here where I live it's pretty safe, but inequality always exists. It's incredibly sick to read of sexual assaults, or non-sexual assaults. Usually, the attackers are the ones who call us "sick people" yet they commit these depraved acts of violence. Disgusting. We're all equal. We all deserve the same respect and treatment. I truly hope this changes.

Posted in: Actor Iseya gets suspended sentence for cannabis possession See in context

I have ended up betraying the trust of people, and caused worries and trouble

Oh no, I wish possession of other more harmful substances was equally punished, e.g. alcohol and tobacco. As for me, you didn't cause me distrust, nor worries nor trouble. I am more worried about real criminals.

Certainly no winners in this case. A disturbed person dead and the life of a probably decent man ruined for having taken a life.

Posted in: Man to be indicted over deadly arson attack on Kyoto Animation in 2019 See in context

This man's selfish motive always revolted me. Did he think he was the centre of the World?. Couldn't he handle the frustration of being turned down [his novels] by the company? We all suffer from frustrations after all and none of us go setting people ablaze. However, if found to have a severe mental illness, I think he should be given special sentence, but never allowed to set foot in free society again. I am very ambiguous to the mental illness defense, and always have been, ever since I myself suffer from a developmental disorder (autism related) for the whole 28-years of my life and forever, and again, I don't go around killing people. What a hard case for the justice, and how many innocent and talented lives ruined! Horrible, sad, and never to be repeated.

Posted in: Woman gets 9 years over starvation death of 2-year-old daughter See in context

could have been regularly abused as multiple bruises and cigarette burns were found on her body.

If I actually wrote what I think of that abuser, my comment would be moderated, and I understand it. But moderator, and to every reader, know that I'm full of ugly words towards the person who did that to a 2-year-old toddler girl. The cruelty shown towards defenceless people like this little girl and the Funato case as well disgust me, how you can be so cold-blooded astonishes me.

OMG, I agree with @Simon G, she was assaulted for such a long time. What a monster, disgusting man. I hope the little girl will get all the psychological support to overcome this and forget that so-called man for the rest of her life. As for him ... well, you know.

Posted in: Japan, U.S. defense chiefs confirm Senkakus come under security pact See in context


I certainly don't want to become Chinese, I just wanted to make the point that old men never go to war, they send the younger like me while they hide in secured bunkers. As for the Senkakus my position is clear, and I agree with you on that. Cheers. :-)

Posted in: Japan, U.S. defense chiefs confirm Senkakus come under security pact See in context

It's so utterly ridiculous to quarrel over a piece of land. Look at Nagorno-Karabakh, over 5,000 killed in a conflict over land. While I support territorial integrity of every country, I am all against sending young men to fight and die for a piece of uninhabited land. That includes me being 28. My opinion may not be popular among nationalists but I respect them, so please, respect mine.

Oh my... whoever's done that, how can you... I mean, a 3-4-year-old little girl is among one of the most vulnerable beings on the entire world. Whoever does that is a coward.

Posted in: Suga, Abe attend memorial for father of N Korea abductee Megumi Yokota See in context

The issue of the abductees goes beyond politics. It's an issue of humanity. A father passing away without seeing his daughter ever again is just plain evil, cruel. Even if she died in N. Korea, as a father, he had the right to hold a funeral, and pay respects to her. I hope Mrs. Yokota lives enough to see something as closure, but I highly doubt it. I can't imagine the hell they have gone through for decades. What an inspiring married couple. May Sakie remains strong.

Posted in: Tokyo ward assemblyman apologizes for remarks against LGBT rights See in context

I am gay and I accept his apologies as part of a very ignorant statement. I find it funny he actually blamed Japan's low birth rate to homosexuals. I am 28 and I am dreaming of earning money by my 35th birthday and have a surrogate mother have my little boy/little girl. As for the rest, it's not worth discussing. I accept his apologies.

He committed his crimes in the 1970s, convicted in 1999. So long. Regardless of your position on the death penalty, it's a waste of a life... and of tax payers money.

Repulsive. What does a man see in a little girl? Disturbing. It is a parent's duty to check their children's activities on the social medias. What a sicko.

Posted in: Jail term upheld for mother over fatal abuse of 5-year-old daughter See in context

I remember the case, that "man" Yudai Funato was said to tremble in court. So, a real "man" to take his frustrations out on a defenceless little girl, but when faced with consequences he trembles in court. What a coward. Abusing a 5 yo little girl, whatta ??? is wrong with those two.

I never got how the people who do this deal with the odor and putrefaction of a corpse. Never got it. As for the news, I'd say arresting her is useless, a waste of the resources that could be offered.
