Posted in: 23-year-old mother arrested over 10-month-old daughter’s death See in context

Some commenter stated that the mother deserves death penaly.

As for me, I think she needs to go through psychological treatment. With 2 young kids already, plus one baby, she was pretty stressed out.

Did she have support?

And how come the couple didn't have more birth control? They had 2 kids already, and had one more...Of course it's going to be difficult to raise them, even with husband together.

Posted in: Search resumes for girl who went missing at Yamanashi campsite last Sept See in context

I wonder if there's a probability that she was abducted...because they have already done a thorough search in the area so far.

I hope she be alive somewhere and be found someday.

Well, for all the chaos, and especially for the murder of that pedestrian woman, she deserves at least 30 years in prison. If I were the victim relative, I would wish her at least 40 years.

If she stabbed him on his chest, he could see her attacking him...I wonder if he couldn't defend himself.

I'm hoping this postponement to 2021,will give chance to the japanese swimmer Ikee Rikako will have chance to participate in the Tokyo Games...

She had acquired leukemia in 2019, and had been through a long treatment, and wouldn't have time enough to be prepared to be in the Japan's swimming team.

This crime was really shocking...the culprit was the chief of the Students Safety Association.

So, the person that should be the most responsible for the safety of the students, raped and killed the student.

If this Tokyo 2020 Olympics happens as it's scheduled, at least one big problem they had anticipated won't occur...lack of hotel rooms.

I'm been really anticipating Rakuten enters the market in full-throttle...

The mobile phone services are still very expensive here in Japan.

Yes, according to some accounts, women also grop...

And some women(girls) accuse somebody just for financial interest.

So, nowadays, I'm always careful not to fall in traps of false accusation.

Posted in: Trailer released for Makoto Shinkai’s new anime, 'Weathering with You' See in context

I think it should be 'At its dramatic moment,', instead of 'At it's dramatic moment,'

Anyway, I definitely want to watch this. Shinkai's Animes are amazing.

Just 15 years, for killing and throwing down her body from a bridge? Very little punishment for such horrendous crime.

He should have been beaten too....

Or, the images of him in the violent action should be shown so that he be ashamed and reflects himself.

Posted in: Japanese swimming star Ikee diagnosed with leukemia See in context

I feel really sad, vexed, and worried for her, seeing this news, as I'm her big fan.

Besides, she's a hope for Gold medal at the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games, for Japan.

I'll be hoping for the success of the treatment and for her full recovery.

Very sad !!... And I wold blame municipal authorities also, for this tragedy...Why they didn't make sure after the girls death, that no one else would die again? For the parents, it's an unimaginable tragedy, as both children are dead now, and for the same cause.

Very sad...I suspect she hated going to school, for some reason, as she did it at the 1st day of school, after holidays.

Kizaki Ryoko...she was great yesterday(Sun, March 10th, in Japan; Saturday afternoon in Vancouver, Canada). I hope to see her in the Rio de Janeiro Olympic Games, 2016... But, this Summer, she'll be representing Japan in the Moscow IAAF Track & Field World Championships... I'll be cheering for her and all the Japan"s women's marathon team...They are not only strong runners, but also cute...(^-^)!

Posted in: London - the Olympics as they should be See in context

I've never seen an Olympic Games with so many incidents...

Example: Flag mistakes(South Korea's flag shown, instead of North Korea), and in the medal ceremony for the Women's Volleyball on penultimate day, Saturday, August 11th, Gold medal winners brazilian athlets names were all mistakenly called out, not matching the names with the person who received the medal.

And so many controversial results, especially in football. Canada clearly won that Semi-final match against USA...However, because of the referee misjudging, Canada was penalized unfairly.

One thing that I really enjoyed is the London Olympics website, in which we could find all the information and videos of the events that we were interested to follow.

As for the women's Volleyball match, the Semi-final Brazil X Hinotori Nippon(Japan), it'll be tough to cheer for any of the countries, as I have my roots in both countries... I wish it was the Final, not Semi-final. Either team loses, It'll be sad.

Posted in: High-flying Nadeshiko Japan plan to wear the gold on trip home See in context

I want Nadeshiko Japan wins the Final tomorrow, Thursday(August 9), as USA qualified for the Final because the referee robbed the match...Canada was leading by 3 X 2, and then, she gave an indirect free-kick to USA, saying goalkeeper kept ball for more than 6 seconds...Such rule hasn't been applied by any referee in the past.... Canada was the winner of that Semi-final, but referee manipulated the result. What a shame.
