For contemporary Japanese, that behavior would be their best commemoration. Take Kancolle for example, making their ancestor's fleet that fought desperately to protect its country and met a tragic end be a lolicon girls club... How respectful!

Posted in: Kyoto Animation to build memorial at site of 2019 arson attack, report says See in context

“I want to avoid the incident fading from people’s memories”

This would be an ego of victims' families, seen by some neighbors who instead want to forget the tragedy. Assume a murder happened in a house or an apartment in your neighborhood, there would be considerable damage to the building and the area, much more if mass murders. This monument will keep it the talk of the town for many generations.

I agree with the neighborhood's opinion.

Posted in: Toyota, slow to move to EVs, says it offers customers choice See in context

The key is all down to the development of the next generation battery such as solid state batteries. If one that is comparable with fossil fuels in terms of the energy density per volume or weight is achieved the winner will be EVs.

Interestingly though, it is Toyota that holds a large number of patents about the new batteries. However at this rate of their attitude towards EVs, it will soon be copied and defeated by China.

Only 3 years for 2 lives? It's already a good deal. What are you asking for more mercy for?? The criminal's family cares only about their son's career after imprisonment.

Why don't you just put pictures of the victims and their families..? Totally biased article!

Ban on dual nationality is rather common worldwide. Any country is not very open to it. You just want to enjoy privilege from both countries. So greedy BBA...

Posted in: Musk warns Japan will cease to exist if birthrate continues decline See in context

Anybody noticed it but Japanese.

The population worldwide is not falling but increasing. The declining population is not so bad in that sense but the main problem of Japan is they still largely relying on manual labors. They are far behind the other developed countries about IT adoption. Anybody from other countries would be sick of too many paper works, too many tedious works to be just formal, etc.

Japan should adopt automation technologies much more than any other countries by taking advantage of shrinking population instead of replacing native citizens with foreigners that's the worst measure.

They will find out that it’s only kids.

No way Japan is at least rich enough for kids not to do such a stupid thing and most kids today are more interested in video games than mischievous.

SDF equipment is typically said not very practical or modern.

Sending the state-of-the-art erohons to the soldiers and mangas to the refugees would be seriously more appreciated!

Posted in: GSDF marks launch of new electronic warfare unit See in context

if it is just for dress, why wear the uniforms and not the more formal suits for such a show?

Agreewith your point. I think at some point the gsdf begun to mix up their dress code. This unique attire used to be used only for a military parade. Maybe they can save a cost of dry cleaners...

Posted in: Black hair, white shoelaces: Japan's school rules under fire See in context

The article can be more neutral and mention the school's point of view.

The reason why the "dye hair black" rule began was all because of students.

Some or many of them for long time in the history have tried to cheat teachers saying my hair is brown by nature, my hair color has changed by chlorine through swimming club activities, etc. and eventually teachers could no longer distinguish between honest students and cheating ones.

I don't disagree with the abolishment of the rule, but just the article sounds unilaterally demonizing schools and teachers.

I really hope that when they invade Taiwan, other countries can unite to condemn them as we are doing now... probably impossible though as many countries are heavily dependent on China...

Posted in: 70 Japanese volunteer to fight for Ukraine against Russia See in context

They are not brave but just naive... To begin with, SDF enlisted are typically not very educated people... How did you even communicate with others!? Zero Ukrainian and very little English. To avoid causing further trouble and for your own safety, better give up direct involvement...

Posted in: Former Tokyo Gov Shintaro Ishihara dies at 89 See in context

There are surprisingly many negative comments to him even at the time of his death.

But I found most of your comments are based on our, gaijin, side... well, as I see it he dedicated himself to Japan, at least based on his own policy, and of course that doesn't necessarily benefit China Korea or even the US. That is the case for any country.

It doesn't make any sense to criticize foreign politicians from your country's point of view.

Posted in: Relatives remember JAL crash victims on 36th anniversary See in context

There are a lot of conspiracy rumours... and one can tell that's very likely. JAL blamed Boeing for "improper repairs conducted by Boeing Co" but after that JAL kept only buying Boeing fleet until very recent Airbus 350 seemingly like planned compensation. Yet another, JAL still doesn't train their pilots for thrust vectoring in case the control surfaces are lost seeming they doesn't want to being up again.

Posted in: Japan's neighbors react strongly to Fukushima water release decision See in context

Totally oppose the decision.

Their claim as far as l know is only "there is no more space. The water is safe enough." No place? What about running a duct to elsewhere? It should be technically possible. Safe? 100%?? Why has it been stored so far then?

If radioactive contamination is found in some decades, intentional criticism would be way harsher than the comfort woman thing and Japan has to compensate it. The government's short sighted decision to get through for now would ruin Japan.

For Japan's own benefit, be patient and come up with a hustle but safe way out.

What's the matter of this article? He could've get annihilated if did the same in Japan as an American Japanese.

It's just his wrong decision to take the small island's side. What a waist. If he didn't his descendents could enjoy being American without a green card and speak nice English.

Posted in: NHK apologizes over tweets said to fan discrimination against Koreans See in context

This is simply a hypothetical situation, NOT reality. There was no need for NHK to apologize to anyone.

No read it again well. On the contrary the story was just conveyed from the true experience. It WAS reality. But in that sense again no need of apology cuz the truth is the truth. It's totally different from the case of the black matters, in which NHK spoiled themselves with their childish creation.

Nevertheless how damn fool japanese yong people are. They can't understand the war without the fictionalized story with Twitter????

Posted in: No emergency See in context

Dont get them wrong

They are complaining not about the government's recognition about the situation but about their politics.

The emergency declaration can be linked to emergency provisions so that the gov can control citizens

and that is one of the most controversial issues Abe wants to make effective regarding his constitutional amendment policy. So basically this photo is NOT about the corona.

But anyway the protestants and other japanese are so naive. European countries do control their people already in this circumstance without exceptions like barbers, DIY stores. Japan gov is so easy on people.
