Sorry, I could have reduced the link to https://www.irexshop.com ^_^; They sell different types of model and they look nice.

As for the model from this article, it seems it is oriented for professionals only, that's why the formats accepted are not that numerous ... http://www.akihabaranews.com/en/news_details.php?id=17746

Posted in: Japanese teach Parisiens about street tidiness See in context

When I was living in Paris, I thought "What a dirty place! But hey, that might be because it is a capital. What do I know, coming from my small village?" Then I arrived in Tokyo and I could see the difference! I believe those Parisiens are thinking "We have people paid to do that, it's not my job". I think those kind of actions are useless in Paris ... people who were already careful not to throw things away will agree with them, the other will just laugh or something ... Also, more garbage collector in the street would help, or at least ashtrays ...

Posted in: More Japanese shunning the outside world See in context

I think we are living in Japan, so we should speak japanese. I am more fluent in english than japanese but I'm coming to it slowly.

As for the movies, to me, the american production are not very well exposed here so that's why they don't perform as well as japanese ones. Less commercials (did you notice the number of shows, documentaries interviews etc ... on "20th century boy"? Compare now to "Eagle Eye", "Iron man" etc ...) Also, when I was living in France, I could notice that 90% of the movies in theaters were american. Here in Japan, the ratio is not that high ... and a lot are not even shown. That's easy to say people prefer japanese movies if you offers more of them. If you have 9 japanese movies and 1 american movie. Well, you have more chances that people will choose a japanese one.

When I say I don't like France, most japanese are shocked I don't like this beautiful conuntry (=Paris ...). And then I ask "Have you been there?" ... "No" ... "That's why". (Even if south of France is good enough)

As a reader commented, a lot of japanese become psycholigically fragile when they live in Paris. French doctors wonder why. According to a study, that's not because french are rude (in Paris, I have to admit they are) but because in France, you have to think by yourself, noone will tell you what to do, where to go, unless you ask. And most of the japanese who became more and more depressed where the kind of people thinking the school or the company would tell them what to do, how to manage their time etc ... The study shows that mostly, it is women who have problems to adapt to the French, or even European, "way of life".

I like this show but I think it was not very useful to learn english. It was nice for people who already speak english and want to learn vocabulary or expression (I learned "out of the blue" and I'm very grateful to that show as now I notice it is used quite a lot in movies and TV shows ...). For someone who doesn't speak english, I guess that show won't help them. Well, now it won't be aired anymore, it surely won't. Oh, and Moe is so beautiful! ^_^;

Posted in: J-pop industry taking the music out of music business See in context

Before I came to lilve in Japan, I really loved J-POP. Now, I can't stand it. I used to think it was "refreshing", compared to the stupidities called songs in my country. Now that I'm living here and I can see how (almost) all artists has the same style, almost the same song we sometimes can't even remember the tune 10 minutes later, I cannot stand it anymore. It's like an overdose of J-POP ... To me, the worst is the 4-5 guys band ... One day, one had the idea to create such a band. It worked. Now, all the other do the same and we have all those so-called "singers". They are only cute faces without so much of a voice but we can't hear it mixed with the others ... However, I am shameful to admit I like some songs of the band named "arashi" ... (-_-)

I am going to Europ in end of February and investigated many flight companies, including British Airways. At that time, the promotion was not available yet but I could find tickets around those price or just a little more expensive ... but then, fuel tax were ven more expensive than the ticket itself!

Before I came to Japan, I studied japanese a little in a school and the teacher "trained" us to take interviews in Japan. She told us to never use "I" or even things like "My tasks were ...". She said we should focus on what the companies we worked for taught us and why we were grateful we had the opportunity to be employed there ... At that time, I thought she only had a bad experience in her country ...

She had to knee down like when one needs to beg in front of each of the >>>>guys and ask for forgiveness ...

NO she didn't. She could have told them to screw off and walk out. No one >>forced her to stay there and do that except herself. And it is BECAUSE >>she did such a thing that they will continue to do it in the future to others.

Well, it seems the guy had his hand on her shoulder to "help her" bow ... Off course she should have left without doing that but well ... she's a japanese girl ^_^; (no offense, if one reads that)

Hearing that story made me think of a yakuza movie ... and off course, I don't know what is exagerated, I just report it as I heard it, don't know more details.

Also, that reminds me of an aquaintance's friend's story. That made me wonder if japanese companies were in their right state of mind ... That girl was offered a job by a company. She asked some time to think about it. Her hidden purpose was to wait for another company she preferred and was interviewd by recently. It happened the second company proposed a job that she accepted right away. She needed to notify the first company that she would refused the job and went to their office, to show her respect and thank them. She went and met the OB who introduced her to the company and the 3 interviewers she had met. They were so mad about the news they shouted at her and practically forced her to bow and apologize for all the trouble she had caused to them! She had to knee down like when one needs to beg in front of each of the guys and ask for forgiveness ... She was shocked and so was I when I heard about that.

Meanwhile, a worker for the HR department at a food company complained: “A male student arrogantly said to us, ‘How can you >>understand what I’m really like after a 15-minute interview?’”

Stupid of him to ask..

I wouldn't ask neither in a normal interview. But sometimes you can't refrain yourself ... For example, my girlfriend (japanese) went to an interview where 3 HR people were interviewing her. The 2 guys were asking basics questions while the woman was asking questions that noone would answer correctly or where no correct answers existed. My girlfriend was trying her best to reply but as she didn't have the "right" answers, the woman complained about her attitude, her style, her look, how students nowadays are stupid, "how could she expect to be hired?!" etc ... my girlfriend left not too depressed as she had decided not to work there anyway when she saw the girl candidate before her leaving the room crying ... In that kind of situation, would a foreigner not reply to them? I would have for sure and would too tell that woman that she cannot know me in 15 minutes.

I think young people have seen or heard about foreign companies where we don't die to work (having a word in the dictonnary for "death from hard work" is kind of a bad indicator to me) and think they should get the same. The problem is that they change their behavior and poor salarimen who has to interview them don't find how to answer to that in their manual ... so they criticize, the manual cannot possibly wrong!

Maff, In fact, in my family, if you're alone with your 2 years-old kid, yes, you go to the bathroom with him/her. When you wash your clothes, the kid might not be on the washing machine but at least near the parent who can see what the kid is doing.

In my country, we never let the kids out of our eyes. Of course they are smart and sometimes manage to escape our vigilence but in Japan, I often see in supermarket, streets or festival kids wandering around without the parents paying attention to them. Once in a supermarket, a small kids was crying because he lost his mother. He was calling out loud while crying, noone helped him and after about 15 minutes, the mother arrived and said "Why are you crying?" ... I was shocked. Good there was no kidnappers ...

I hope the kid hit by the train will be fine.

I agree with the "hard-wired theory", like in animals but to me, being Human is also fighting the wrong animal aspect of our beings. So, we should control and live by the rules of society. All the hard-wired guys, you can live in muslim countries where polygamy is tolerated, if you don't fit society, change of it ;-)
