Normal people are already making Hollywood style movies with AI. It's only time when actors are all AI who do not need to get paid for... acting as it were.

Japan is a semi free country. Buy what you want and deal with the results later on in life. Good Ums!

Posted in: Kishida says he is determined to lead world toward cooperation, not division See in context

He can't even lead Japan or bring people together or even help Japanese citizens through this economic downturn and he thinks he can lead the world with anything? Think not.

Posted in: South Korean DJ Soda reaches settlement over groping at Japan event See in context

I saw the incident myself and think this was not a big deal at all but makes for profitable headlines for the DJ who was not at all harmed and who was the one who placed her two units in everyones face.

Posted in: Man arrested after injuring, robbing woman during home intrusion See in context

I guess I really care: The number of crimes recorded in Japan in the first six months of 2023 increased by more than 20% compared to the same period of the previous year, due in part to an increase in street crime and break-ins amid an easing of COVID-19 restrictions, police data showed Wednesday.

Posted in: Man arrested after injuring, robbing woman during home intrusion See in context

Crime rates rise for a variety of reasons in Japan. Some common factors that might contribute to an increase in crime include economic challenges, changes in social structures, shifts in demographics, substance abuse problems, alterations in cultural and societal norms, and adjustments in law enforcement practices.

Posted in: Nissan to make all new cars sold in Europe fully electric by 2030 See in context

The problem is, no one wants to buy Nissan Automobiles. Especially in European countries where more upscale sporty automobiles are locally created and designed with flair and savvy-ness. But, good job on Nissan to still give it a go!

So, Kashida san is [just] considering to assist the people of Japan during this time of economic crisis that the Japanese Government created over 30 years ago - however the Japanese Government conveniently have the funds to purchase Tomahawk missiles worth about 211.3 billion yen in 2023.

Does anyone find this odd?

Posted in: Kishida pledges to set up special zones to boost foreign investment See in context

If Japan wants investments from what they call GAIJIN then maybe the treatment of the internationals in a positive manner should be taken into account. Plus, dumping treated nuclear water into the ocean for the next 30 plus years is no indication of a country that is moving in the right direction. I mean, this is common sense.
