They should make a movie about the evil Putin and the brutality of his unjustified aggression against the sovereign nation of Ukraine, but hold on ... before that, how about a movie about the war crimes of Bush and the unjustified US invasion of Iraq which led to the creation of ISIS?

@stormcrow

"10 years?! That's a joke. Will Smith should've been banned from attending permanently."

YES. My feelings exactly! What about jail time and a hefty fine which any of us would get for for assault.

Here we go again! Is it only my imagination or does it seem that the number of murders by family members is unusually high in Japan?

"I think this whole "within 72 hours" thing needs to be rethought out. Many countries don't return the results within that time period."

Agree 100%, unless Japanese embassies/conulates overseas can designate clinics that can provide same-day results with Japanese testing specifications.

Cremation has been the norm for dealing with the deceased in modern-day Japan. One major exception has been emperors and empresses, who have been ceremoniously buried.

Posted in: More details emerge over Kawasaki stabbing rampage, killer See in context

Christopher Bauer's asked

"why is the English translation of the criminal's words written as "I'm gonna kill you," instead of "I'm going to kill you?" Is there some idiomatic Japanese that the reporter wished to convey in English?"

My reply ' Yes, I believe there is' The criminal most probably shouted an informal slang similar to " 殺すぞ " which roughly translates into "gonna kill ya"
