I tried it. It only goes on sale after 2PM. It is a LOT of food. Too much for me. I killed a little more than half before I had to tap out. Give it a try. My recommendation is to ask them to cut it in half. This way you can take home half of it if you get too full.

I met him here in Japan in 2008. I had the opportunity to chat with him and his wife and got a autographed photo. He was very kind and very interesting to speak with. Rest in Peace, Sir.

Posted in: New 'Star Wars' film 'Rogue Squadron' due in 2023 See in context

People like to comment with cliche and hop on the "Oh I don't like it... Jar Jar binks...". It is a set of films that is a cultural icon. If you don't like it, don't go see it. Leave it to the real fans.

Posted in: 'Tenet' director Nolan slams Warner Bros same day streaming plan See in context

They way that cast, writers, and directors are paid is not so black and white. It depends on the contract, the producers, where the finance came from, and if the people involved are unionized or not. Nolan gets to have his opinion. How much water does it hold? I don't know. If the distributors own all the rights and everyone else has been paid for their contributions, it is up to the rights owner.

My only issue with WB making this move is the terrible way they distribute movies in Japan. Sometimes movies are released here weeks, months, or years later! By that time, the internet has already spoiled the plot and any twists.

Trolling an actress online is only something a lowlife would do. It is a movie. You watch it and move on. This isnt the first time that these fake fans harrassed a Star Wars actor. They tore up Ahmed Best too.

Posted in: 10 times Japanese train passengers aren’t so polite See in context

"Using your phone near the priority seats (154 points)

Passengers are asked to refrain from talking on their phones on Japanese trains, regardless of which part of the carriage they’re in. Using your phone to fire off emails or read SoraNews24, though, is acceptable…unless you’re sitting in or standing near the priority seats, in which case you’re asked to power down your phone entirely.

This rule comes from concerns that the signals sent by mobile phones may interfere with pacemakers of other medical devices, whose bearers are likely to be sitting in the priority seats due to their health issues. But with smartphone use being such a ubiquitous part of rail travel in Japan, many people forget, or simply don’t bother to, shut their phones off."

This rule is stupid and not based on any evidence. If the signals from phones affected pacemakers, people with pacemakers would be dropping dead in Shinjuku, or Shibuya all day long. Just getting in to a train doesn't make the signal different.

The people who sold the rights to make the movie are not butt hurt over it. If you want to choose who to cast, buy the rights and throw down the money for production yourself.

Confirmation bias much? So there are zero other contributing factors?

What's next? Teens with legs are more mobile than the one's without legs.

Ppppssssstttt.... Assertions are not facts. You need evidence that shows video games have a direct effect on sexism in teens.

Posted in: Life's no hoot for owls in Tokyo cafes, activists say See in context

This article is written by someone who has no idea about owls. owls are stationary most of the time. They basically only fly to catch prey. In owl cafes they are fed correctly. Kept out of the harsh environment. They are not abused. The owls have been around humans since they were in eggs. They also have imprinted with their humans so they see them as family.

Posted in: Japan to conduct first major survey on racism: report See in context

I think banning any kind of speech is a slippery slope. Remember freedom of speech means you can't be arrested for speech. It doesn't mean your free of the consequences of shoot your mouth off to the wrong person.
