“Do not expect cinema to put up walls and borders.” Hypocrites!! All these celebrities live in walled mansions in gated communities with security guards, while Hollywood studios use geo-blocking as virtual borders to prevent people outside America from viewing their content!!

Posted in: In 2015, Japan accepted 27 refugees, including three Syrians, after some 7,500 people from 69 countries sought such status in Japan, according to the justice ministry. Do you think Japan should take i See in context

Most importantly for Japan, they need to look after their own refugees from Fukushima, and ensure they look after their own people who need help. A "refuge" should be a temporary place of shelter until a war is over. Once the war is over, all refugees should return, to rebuild their own country. Refuges should be set up in neighbouring countries who share common cultural values, and other countries can contribute food and other essentials.

Posted in: 'Ghost in the Shell' makers defend Johansson casting See in context

As much as I would like to see a Japanese actress such as Haruka Ayase play the lead role, the truth is Japanese actresses are not well known internationally. Scarlett will simply sell more tickets, and that is all Hollywood cares about

Posted in: Samsung's quick fix for Galaxy Note 7 is no full recharge See in context

Samsung could have avoided all this trouble if they had taken more time to thoroughly test the Note 7 before release. Consumers will now reconsider purchasing Samsung products in the future, as it seems Samsung is not testing their products correctly before release.

Posted in: More than 2.5 million and rising sign UK petition for new EU referendum See in context

If the "Remain" side had won, they would have demanded the "Leave" side to respect the vote. The referendum has been decided, the "Leave" side has won, and the "Remain" side must respect the result.

Words cannot fully express how disgusting and vile this practice is! This practice brings absolute shame and disgrace to China!

Posted in: China says Nanjing more worthy of remembrance than Hiroshima See in context

The suffering of innocent victims in Nanjing at the hands of Japanese soldiers does not justify the suffering of innocent victims in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The Japanese soldiers responsible for Nanjing are war criminals, but that does not justify the suffering of thousands of innocent Japanese civilians in Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

Posted in: 'Naked Gun' star George Kennedy dead at 91 See in context

When writing a headline that someone has passed away, please use the phrase "has died" or "passed away" as using the word "dead" is a very cold and unsympathetic way of reporting the person's death. Having lost my sister to crime, and it being reported in the media, i feel this small change in wording helps to soften the shock to those affected by death.

Posted in: Project kicks off to promote Japanese idol culture See in context

For Japanese pop culture to spread all over the world, its going to have to come with subtitles. I personally love AKB48, but get so frustrated that I can only watch their programs like AKBingo, when they have been subbed by fans. Why not offer these shows with official subtitles, and broadcast them online to the world.

Posted in: Around 700 koalas killed in Australia See in context

As an Australian citizen I am disgusted by this, with such small numbers in the wild, everything should be done to preserve the species. Seriously, how hard would it have been to bring eucalyptus leaves down to the community from other areas of Australia. This is gross negligence on the part of the authorities, and they should be ashamed of themselves!

Posted in: China media mock Japan's luxury lavatories See in context

Instead of criticising others about their toilets, the Chinese should first learn about basic sanitary hygiene, so that they stop exporting frozen berries infected with Hepatitis A...

Posted in: Abe handed letter from Sea Shepherd founder in Australia See in context

As an Australian I believe Japan should be able to conduct very limited commercial whaling as long as it is carefully managed and sustainable. The problem with the Greens and Sea Shepard is they have such a single-mindedness approach to whaling and will not consider any other opinion than their own.

Posted in: Youth attacks 70-year-old man with ice pick in Yokohama park See in context

If you're old enough to commit attempted murder, then you're old enough to be tried as an adult. Also in my opinion there is no such thing as "not guilty by reason of insanity" as I believe the person would have to be insane to commit such a despicable crime.

Posted in: Japan's population target unlikely without migrants but door stays shut See in context

I do not believe immigration is the answer to Japan's declining population. I think the best option is to clearly tell the Japanese people that unless they increase their fertility rate now, they risk economic and social decline in the decades to come.

I think the Japanese people, especially the younger people, need to be "shocked" into action. Young couples need to be given every incentive possible to pro-create, and singles should be encouraged to see the benefits of forming a loving relationship.

There is no more time left for polite indifference, The Government needs to take decisive action now, doing everything in their power to increase the fertility rate of the nation, otherwise Japan as we know and love today will be unrecognisable by 2060.
