Don't think your daughter won't remember this when she's older and you're needing her help desperately.

Posted in: Man offers to pay back mistakenly sent ¥46.3 mil COVID funds 'little by little' See in context

One other way is to give him more money and give him a chance to win back all his losses, but he doesn't seem to be the lucky sort, does he?

Posted in: Girl who disappeared in Yamanashi in 2019 confirmed dead after bone DNA test See in context

I knew the chances were slim for a happy ending but I had kept my fingers crossed for the mother. It's tough to lose one's child like this. "If I had only gone with Misaki...." I'm sure that thought will be on the mother's mind the rest of her life.

Posted in: Man suspected of killing wife, 11-month-old daughter See in context

I hate to think that a man is able to kill his own 11-month-old daughter. Surely there must be something to keep you from going through with it.

Posted in: Woman in her 80s stabbed by man inside train station in Shimane Prefecture See in context

I'll be sure to take my cane from now whenever I go out. Better a cane than being completely unarmed when there are individuals like this about.

Posted in: Parents mourn singer Sayaka Kanda after fatal fall from hotel See in context

When you get to my age, all you think about is how to prolong life--so you can delay saying good-bye to everything and everyone that you love. You don't want the end to come even a day earlier.

Posted in: Miss Universe 2021 Japan entry slammed for wearing 'dead person’s kimono' See in context

I was not offended and didn't even think this was near enough to be considered a kimono. Therefore, the way it overlapped didn't even matter. It was just...amateurish.

Posted in: In rare move, Michigan school shooter's parents charged with manslaughter See in context

I've already thought parents were also responsible in such cases. After all, they raised this individual. Make parents responsible and there should be fewer such cases.

Require all government officials to wear them until they're used up as a reminder not to waste public funds.

Why can't you go insane and be insanely nice to others for a change?
