What bad behavior? That is how they behave in their own country, and it's not considered bad just normal everyday behavior. Sad but true.

What the hell is the problem? Right or wrong if an apology is wanted what harm does it do to give one? Humans are such idiots.

Posted in: U.N. rights committee urges Japan to let children be children See in context

This is pretty stupid. Of all the places in the world where children are at risk Japan is low on the scale, Where is the UN condemation of the rampant child rape going on in India? And what of Africa? Ot even the U.S.A.?

Even America has a great deal of child abuse and neglect. Generally Americans don't put pressure on their children to succeed or even demand they lean respect and good behavior. But that doesn't mean they are not at high risk for neglect and abuse and the problem is getting worse.

Posted in: Writer for Hollywood version of anime 'your name.' says Japanese side wants Westernized viewpoint See in context

Americanized versions of anime will always fail because American producers and script writers do not understand subtly. Same can be said for the American audience. The Japanese however are masters at subtly and thats what makes anime so seductive and why I love it. I never watch or support any western interpretation of anime, it's a waste of my time.

And I also wonder, is it worth the cost, the price , to the creators of anime, to have your work trashed?

Sometimes..well actually most of the time lately I am ashamed to be an American. Drunk and can't remember? No way not buying it.

Pure bunk , yes they studied all the studies BUT who funded those studies?

I'm not anti vaccine, my kids have gotten almost every vaccine they can get. But this one I leave for them to decide. I personally think it's a big waste of precious medical dollars.

Posted in: Should saying thanks at a Japanese convenience store go without saying? See in context

How interesting. After reading the article on Japanese manners, this is a bit surprising.

In America we don't usually thank store clerks unless we have caused some problem or issue, like asking a question or holding up the line or needing help finding something. Of course it could be a problem for the person behind you so sometimes we apologize. But not always, there is a lot of rudeness in America.

Posted in: Japan's manners are the laughingstock of the world See in context

I actually think the world should adapt Japanese manners. And I hate the handshake, not only because I am a germ phobe...but it seems rather aggressive to me.

The handshake itself has its own set of "manners". Is it too weak? Too strong? And how long do you grasp the hand? I think Japanese manners are just right.

Why do strangers think it is their business? Parents should be free to spend their money however they see fit.

Posted in: World bracing for risk of Trump's trade war See in context

It is THE one sensible thing the president has done since being elected. I support it.

After all our allies have has tariffs on American products for years. Trade is already unbalanced at the expense of the American worker. American politicians need to get on board and end their perfidious ways.

Posted in: 'One Piece' author claims a certain seven villains extended the series far longer than he intended See in context

Really 20 years? It is so easy to become engrossed by the story and characters, it really doesn't seem that it has been that long. One Piece is truly an epic story of , well, the epic kind. And I for one will be sad when it ends. But until then, there are a few, maybe some years left to the story and for the moment all is right with the universe.

Posted in: Are Japan's bookstores in the path of yet another storm? See in context

I miss bookstores. I hate my kindle...never use it. I don't like download either. There is nothing like having a physical copy of a book. I miss that. I love to read but since there is no place for me to buy books, I don't read as much as I use to. Buying on Amazon has it's pitfalls too. Many times I have ordered books and they are not what I really wanted, so I am leery about purchasing books online.

To my way of thinking, this lack of access is dumbing down the population.

Posted in: A guide to New Year traditions in Japan See in context

That was so interesting reading about the New Year traditions in Japan. Happy New Year to Everyone!! In the part of America where I am from , family and friends gather on New Years Eve to celebrate with a dinner of pork, sauerkraut and black-eyed peas at the stroke of midnight. Even though I don't live in that part of America anymore, I will still have my pork and sauerkraut (sans the peas) at midnight tonight. The important thing is the pork and sauerkraut ...for good luck in the new year.

Posted in: More than 100 lawmakers visit Yasukuni shrine See in context

I want to know..what country on earth has a pristine history? Certainly not America, China or Korea. As a matter of fact America celebrates on of the worst war criminals in it's history and that is General Custer, although he is not considered a war criminal in America , but it doesn't mean that he was not one, it only means that the winning side gets to decided who is a criminal and who is not. I think it is better for the citizens of a country to decide what and who is appropriate for them to honor without outside interference based on political correctness, or other nations own version of what is politically correct.
