@thepersoniamnow So we should adopt the same attitude as Saudi Arabia? I am proud and happy that Arab are respected and tolerated in France and I am pissed off that out government is now proving otherwise to follow their own private agenda.

Poor France (my home country) falling into the terrorist trap head first. Could not agree more with Strangerland Dividing the population will only increase radicalism and isolate a whole part of French population. France has always been bad at handling immigration, promoting an assimilation model but in reality creating ghettos of immigrants in our suburban areas. Our government only has next election in April 2017 in sight and they are addressing an issue which did not exist last year. I am wondering how people are wearing burkini on the beach ( a few hundreds at most and will be much more in the future after this fuss) and we make headline news and are (rightfully so) ridiculed in the world for our attitude. We have real issues in France about unemployment, tax evasion, social security, education but no!! Terrorism, insecurity that will get the vote from the bigot!

Guys come on it's just a movie based on a comic. And to answer the fight would be short, no it would not. Superman is the ultimate nice guy he would not kill another guy for no reason (Ok, he killed Zod but he has his reasons). Batman explains it himself, biggest weakness of superman is that deep down Clark Kent is a nice guy and Bruce Wayne is a bad guy. Also, yes kryptonite and Batman is the best detective on the planet don't forget! Just to say looking forward to that flick!!!

Why do people want to get high anyway? If life so bad that you want to escape it by smoking leaves and getting off your face?
Well they are some records of people getting high more than 3000 years ago. I don't think people gets high to escape life but rather to be more connected to it

Kato_Koshiro If you legalize (I mean harmless weed, not deadly heroin right) you end the traffic and violence related to it. How many Cigarette Lords or Alcohol Lords do you know? Plus you can educated people, rely on real therapy instead or jail time and save tons of government money and police time.

And in the meantime we have the loophole drugs "spice" that kills people just because weed is illegal and strictly condemned. The war on drugs is the biggest joke and most expensive and ineffective measure to keep conservatives' vote. It does not help addicts nor solve any problem as drugs have never been easier to get than it is now. Stop creating misery on drug traffic, legalize it!

I love coffee therefore not a big fan of Starbucks especially since they teamed up with Monsanto. However 700 yen for a coffee is way too much, especially if this is the entry price for a "standard" coffee.

Posted in: I think manga is depriving young people of the pleasure of reading real literature. I hope people would return to the written world and the beauty of the past. And get rid of katakana. Katakana should See in context
I think manga is depriving young people of the pleasure of reading real literature.
How? Please elaborate here, in that case same goes with movies, TV, video games, etc... People will eventually get to literature some sooner than other. Actually thanks to manga kids are actually reading.

now the tax payer and everyone else in Japan has to
Are you American? Bringing up the tax payer to the story? Really?? Which burden will you bear, paying for a spot in an asylum or death row? Wow such a burden mate.
What a selfish coward. Are you serious there? I think it's more like "my child is a monster" can you put yourself in his boots for one second? What would you do instead? Pay the girl's family, pray, cry, something else? His life was over the moment his teenage girl committed the unthinkable. What's the point living with it, will it ease the pain of the other girl's family? Will you tax be lowered...

Wow lot of you guys seems to totally forget that living with this on your conscience as a father must be unbearable , whether you are a samurai or not. How can you look at yourself in the mirror after your kid does such a horrible thing? Of course he lived in a different place, of course he remarried but he asked help from psychiatrist too. What can you do, wake up every morning and live with it? It does not solve anything but what his to be solved anyway? This girl will never get better, she does not understand basic feelings anymore, love is far from the solution here... Sad story with tragic ending.

There should be a 24h city bus service at least connecting big hubs and main stations on the outskirt of the city especially on weekends. Why don't they do it? Every big city in Europe has a night bus service or at least late trains in the week end. In Tokyo either you party until 11:30PM or 6:00AM as a taxi ride home could easily cost you more than 6,000Y.

Raymond, not sure the 4/5 years old I've seen being crazy about Youkai Watch were fully aware of the folklore either. It's gonna be a hit I guarantee it.

So there is actually urban planning in Tokyo. Interesting.

There is really no need for one to come out as gay or straight. It is a choice we make individually.
I don't think it's a choice you make it is just who you are, born this way if I may say so. It's not like you wake up one day and say:"That's it, I'm gay now! Because I chose it"

Went to Matsuya Ginza with the wife as she "had to" buy chocolates for the brother in law and even nephew??? Oh boy what a mistake there was this chocolates fair, impossible to walk, only excited girls buying buying buying like headless chicken... I can help but to be cynical at this time of the year in Japan. Go Japan, spend your cash! It seems the only way of life for most of you guys.

Well that's is another good free party spot gone. Japan does love killing the fun especially when it is free. With an aging population it's not gonna get better. Ban on tattoo, ban on dancing, ban on drinking, ban on music, what's next ban on being young?

This movie might actually make some money in Japan with all the aggressive marketing and Disney related placement! Does not matter if it is good or bad if talentos say it's good people will follow! Haven't seen the movie yet so hard to judge but seems pretty bad.

I worked in a Kaisha 2 years and the main reasons have stated in the comments, but one thing I witnessed was that they sleep at their desk to show exhaustion from work. So basically 2 hours asleep means they have to stay at leas 2 hours after standard working hours. And also it is considered bad to leave before your boss and as most of time the boss has a boring life waiting for him back home he just seats there surfing the web or reading news paper while the other workers are dying to get home or out.

I feel so blessed to have grown up in Europe where we have nice gardens and playgrounds to play with our friends and even houses with gardens if we are lucky enough and not living in big cities. Where I only see concrete playgrounds right next to the road with sometime heavy traffic in in Tokyo, not even grass or sand boxes... I feel sorry for the kids, the environment is really not fit to play around with your friends. Oh and of course we were always being watched over by parents
