Posted in: Japan aims to quadruple overseas market for anime, games See in context

the problem is that those companies are hell bent on being jp exclusive.

the proof of that notion was when DMM decided to region block their entire website except for their eiwaka english classes section!

even their FANZA section was region blocked.

that decision will more or less circumvent some overseas customers to resort to piracy for they will have no choice for if they are unable to LEGALLY obtain anime products (ESPECIALLY THE R18 ONES) directly from japan!, they will resort to getting them via illegal means!

unless govt major changes made, like repealing their outdated censorship laws, piracy will continue no matter what type of anti piracy measures they do.

Posted in: Miss Universe Japan picks Sailor Moon ninja transformation dress as national costume for 2018 See in context

not surprising!

since she was born in the late 90's of course she chose usagi!

now if she was from the late 2000's / early 2010's then i would be really surprised since in those times the most popular magical girl series in japan were lyrical nanoha , madoka magica & fate/kaleid prisma illya!

Posted in: Ready or not, Japan on the way to becoming a nation of immigrants See in context

well they have to accept immigrants eventually considering their own population is declining very quickly. though they would basically accept americans at least since we're allies.not some jihad crazy arabs.

i know a crapload of anime otakus in the US and other western countries like the UK who would kill to live in japan. and of course i'm one of them.

Posted in: Abe: Japan must fix domestic problems before taking in refugees See in context

this coming from the most stupidest PM in history?

he definitely needs a reality check thinking keeping them away will help. the decrease in birth population isnt going away anytime soon and having them would have helped.

Posted in: Revised law banning child porn possession goes into effect See in context

i got no problem at all banning real child porn. hell personally i think those 3D versions should be banned as well. alongs as they leave the otaku industry the hell alone cause lolicon and shotacon pictures and videos from hentai arent harming kids at the least.

its just as what ken akamastu and other manga authors said. claims that materials like these are harming kids is not only idioic , it'll harm the entire manga industry. and to be frank the only thing those govt's officials are proving is that their getting more and more like the US politicians. COMPLETELY OUT OF TOUCH & UTTERLY MORONIC TO THE HIGHEST DEGREE!!. its why i really dont give a hoot about politics at all and ignore them at times unless their trying to screw around with the manga and gaming industries.

Posted in: Vegeta’s voice actor starts a new rock band See in context

Odd? I never heard of that. the only news i heard was that he and Vegetta's English dub voice actor Christopher R Sabat was doing some kinda of VA recruiting thing to find people who are dual speakers ( can speak both japaneese and english on both countries ) . Never said he would do the exact same as JYB ( Johnny Young Bosch ) and start his own band. though i am interested especially if their able to have a concert in any of the New York / New Jersey anime conventions.

Posted in: Next 'Die Hard' movie rumored to be set in Tokyo See in context

I have a feeling that if it does staged in japan, it's probably gonna be one where it's the entire mclane family against the japaneese yakuza since the 5th was him and his son against the russian mafia.
