That Kyo-Ani's president seems wishy-washy.

First, he hastily says they never received any work from the suspect nor has he ever seen his name. Then now, they say they did.

He said that their building had a security system that required an access card to enter the building. Then later, they say there was no such system, anyone could enter freely.

Not sure I trust this guy.

I'm curious whether he really got his work ripped off. Doesn't justify what he did, of course. In America, lots of disgruntled people go shoot up places so there are crazies like that.

Saikawa is the hero that saved Nissan and Renault from that crook.

It's an international crime. Of course other countries will get involved.

Aren't pre-made rockets available already for anybody to buy and stick their spaceships to and launch? Somebody should.

Posted in: Death toll in arson attack on Kyoto anime studio rises to 35 See in context

How many people were in the building, 70? I can't believe that in this day and age and in Japan no less, 35 people can die from a building fire of this size. Did they have escape plans? Drills? Was it an old building that it didn't have sprinklers? Japanese pride themselves on their buildings being seismically stronger than anywhere but, hope they also review their fire preparedness.

I work at a large firm in the US. We have fire drills like 4 times a year. If somebody burns popcorn in the microwave, we all evacuate. Are drills commonly done in Japan, too?

Obviously people staying away from the Nissan brand because of distrust borne out of Gohsn's wrongdoings. I hope Saikawa can save the company.

Posted in: Ghosn sues Nissan, Mitsubishi Motors for breach of contract See in context

Who knows Ghosn could also use it to pressure Nissan on his criminal if he can bring some damaging evidence to light about Nissan and Mitsubishi in the process. It may also help to change the public opinion in Japan about Ghosn more to the positive.

What damaging evidence about Nissan and Mitsubishi?? HE was the one running the companies! If there were anything damaging that the companies did, HE did them.

The Japanese are such quiet, obedient sheeps. The government can herd them any way they want. The Japanese actually see demonstrations and protests happening in other countries as uncivilized!!

Japan wastes too much energy on unnecessary things like the washlets and automatic doors that are in every commercial building. Turn them off! Other countries don't need them and everybody's fine. Japan prides itself in having so many conveniences but they're also a waste. Save some energy and all these powerplants may not be needed.

"Mottainai" There, you pride yourself in that word, don't you??

What memories? Nobody is still alive barely from those times and Japan has apologised and moved on. Most of the planet would be fine with a Japanese ship coming their way. Can’t say the same about others though.

What? Then are you saying that it's okay to bandy about the Nazi swastika all over the place?? That flag is Asians' swastika. Don't be so insensitive.

And don't get me started on that 'apologized and moved on' part.

It's not because Saikawa is Japanese that he gets off free. I don't know if it's ever been disclosed but, I bet Saikawa is the one that collected the evidence and went to the authorities.

I mean I get it, that to you guys, Ghosn is a fellow expat, and you feel the camaraderie of having to endure the harsh life in Japan being a foreigner (sarcasm), so you sympathize with him. Well if life there is that tough, go back to your own countries. If you're from the US, go back and pay into the Social Security system where you will get a lot better return than if you spent your lifetime working in Japan. Nobody is forcing you to be there. You want to be there so stop it with playing the victim in Japan. Stop sympathizing (empathize?) with that crook just because you feel the bond. Believe me, he doesn't know you guys even exist and don't care. He's a multimillionaire tycoon.

Ghosn told Saikawa to just shut up and sign the damn papers. So coward of Ghosn to now blame him, "why did you let me do those things??"

Posted in: Ghosn, Kelly appear in court; lawyer asks why Saikawa wasn't indicted See in context

All you Saikawa haters here criticizing him, have you guys ever worked at a company? When you know your boss is doing something wrong or illegal, it's not easy to just come out and do something about it. Easy to say, hard to do. You always fear for reprisal, you fear for your job. Especially if your boss is so almighty and famous. Very understandable. You basically have to go along with it, not rock the boat, collect evidence and wait for a chance to bring it to light and right the wrong, and that's what he did. He's a hero for saving Nissan and Renault from that crook. That's why he doesn't get touched.

When are you guys going to wake up? After all that pleading, nobody, nobody, NOBODY comes to Ghosn's aid.
