Posted in: Japan to uphold apology if South Korea settles wartime labor issue See in context

Japan will keep expressing remorse and apology as they have been so far and SK filed a lawsuit and will settle it themselves. So, what is "news" here?

I don't take either side of the discussion. But isn't this too unilateral?

ultra-conservatives in the ruling party known for their efforts to whitewash Japan’s wartime past.

Associated Press writer Kim Tong-hyung in Seoul, South Korea contributed to this report.

As a press you guys should at least be neutral.

On the contrary I find Japanese more convenient from his manga. You only have to lean less phrases to cover more. I also found that sometimes fractured Japanese sounded native cuz Japanese can omit many building blocks of the full sentences.

Yeah, true! They should've taken equality seriously and laid macho guys and disabled people on the back too, posing that way.

Don't worry. The US will help protect their colony conveniently located in front of the communist countries. Maybe have to give up some small southern islands though.

They've already possessed the first class equipment, like f35, Aegis destroyers, etc which few countries can afford. However they're lacking enough ammo, drones, or many of practical stuff. I guess they're bad at selecting weapons and assigning the budget, plus have to purchase American products.

Posted in: Why are there so many reincarnation and villainess anime and manga? Manga editor explains See in context

The very important point is missing. This stupid genre doesn't require authors to deeply investigate the topic before writing, so that the entry barriers are just low. Japanese cartoons used to be unique and fantastic for their wide variety of themes including sports, cooking, arts, gambling to name a very few, where the authors had to have enough knowledge. But they're slacking off these days. All you need to do for Isekai stories is maybe playing online video games (the characters can always check their own status...). Today I have to say manga artists from the other countries e.g. French, who leaned it from the legendary Japanese artists like H. Miyazaki, have much better potentials...

I believe no Japanese are interested in Halloween itself. They don't even know what they actually celebrate that day. They just want to feel bold being crazy together (

It is better for China to self-destruct under the stupidest dictator in their history than to become a halfway democratic and long-lasting country while maintaining its national power and bad mannered nature.

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.

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.
