Posted in: Woman dies after being shoved to the floor at home by 19-year-old son See in context

Hey, why is not given more details like his father, and his brothers? Or was a single mother with only one child?

Anyway, I wonder what was the argument they were fighting for.

Posted in: Arrest proves a common Japanese saying about apologies and police See in context

Terrible misspelling:

It's not "Saki wo gomen”.

Correct is: 'Sakki wa gomen'.

Moderator: Yes, you are correct. It has been fixed. Thank you.

Posted in: Woman, baby daughter die after being hit by train in apparent murder-suicide See in context

Japan Today should inform whether she was a single mother. what was her situation?

Anyway, she should have looked for help with relatives. If really wanted to die, she should have left the child with somebody, or with the orphanage.

Because of the high reviews and now this Oscar, I should watch this movie.

Posted in: Tarako, voice of popular anime girl Maruko, dies at 63 See in context

I love the anime Chibi maruko-cha...

It's very sad not hearing her voice anymore.

Also I've watched Maison Ikkoku...it's a very interesting anime...also the Live action movie.

Posted in: Truck driver arrested over fatal hit-and-run of 23-month-old boy in Saitama Prefecture See in context

Incredible that the truck was dammaged after hitting the very small boy...

So, if it wasn't dammaged, police would never find who killed the boy.

In that aspect, they were lucky.

Posted in: 'Dragon Ball': Japan's manga powerhouse See in context

I've never read the manga or watched the 'Dragon Ball', but I know it was very popular in Canada, for example. I used to see lots of volumes of its manga, available to be lent.

I'm not very surprised, as here in Japan I have seen spelling mistakes even on traffic signs.

At the 1st comment, the correct is [DV raises its ugly head].

It'll help a lot also if all the private matchmaking websites turned out Free of charge...many have Free choice, but in that case, we can't contact the partner with whom we are interested.

Posted in: Teen arrested over murder of parents in Kanagawa Prefecture See in context

Death Penalty for him?

The main points that must be taken into account:

1) He's a minor

2) He may have had strong reasons for committing this crime....was he being abused by his parents?

A shark would be more remorseful after biting a surfer´s leg than this pervert.

Posted in: Man gets 20 years for killing woman, dumping her body in Miyagi mountain forest See in context

For such a gruesome crime(kidnapping, violating, and murdering), the sentence of 20 years is like a visit in the park...too short.

A life sentence would be more appropriate.

Posted in: N Korean leader Kim sends message of sympathy to Kishida over quake See in context

A shark biting and killing his victim has more remorse than North Korean President Kim Jong Un launching missiles toward Japan.

Posted in: N Korean leader Kim sends message of sympathy to Kishida over quake See in context

Message of sympathy?

After launching so many missiles to the air space of Japan, who will believe he sympathizes with Japan?

Posted in: Tokyo's Shibuya sees subdued Halloween as tight security dampens mood See in context

Somebody said:

"I think they should welcome (Halloween) rather than resist it. After all, everyone is coming because they love Shibuya,"

The above statement is stupid...government is preventing accidents, terror attacks, and people leaving the streets dirty with so much trash and garbage.

I'm glad authorities are preventing this Halloween gathering。

Posted in: Toyota to offer Century SUV in bid to win more wealthy customers See in context

The design with the long head is not appropriate for tight streets in Japan...very difficult for drivers to check for pedestrians and bicycles on the crossings.

I would never buy...smart people would never buy such a cumbersome and impractical car.

Posted in: Gov't may seek to dissolve Unification Church: source See in context

The government should consider also dissolving 冨士大石寺顕正会(ふじたいせきじけんしょうかい)/Fuji Taisekiji Kenshoukai, which is very similar to the Unification Church.

They also ask members to buy their books and products, and ask to donate money.

At least, I wish some TV Network make a documentary on their activities...it's very similar to what the Unification Church has been doing.

U.S. barely advanced to the Knock out stage...so, I was expecting Sweden to win this match. No surprise at all.

Posted in: Miyazawa scores her 5th goal of Women's World Cup as Japan beats Norway 3-1 to reach quarterfinals See in context

I'm hoping Japan has 3 more matches, until the Final one.

I'm also cheering for Colombia, especially after my home country has been eliminated.

Here in Japan, it seems like it's not a concern...At least, I'm not worried that my Electic Assisted Bicycle's battery will explode.
