“What if the situation had been the other way around? I wonder if the Japanese would have acted the same way,” he said.
Not a chance in hell.

Japan is truly world-class when it comes to playing the poor victim.

Welcome to Japan. This is the land of oblivion.
Exactly. Any other country in the world, and the kids would have reacted differently.

Japan doesn't have investigative reporting.

I hope so. It's awful.

Right back at you. I found this useful information.

This is normal in Japan.

Japan doesn't do "rehabilitation". They will keep her doped up on very old drugs, and then release her in a few years.

Are you being hugely hinkiku (ironic) with the above comment? Isnt that the pot calling the kettle black when Japan ideological, cultural, and linguistic copies all things western and has done so since the Meiji era?
You may want to keep up the Japanese study....

If I were related to the victims, I would want them out and about, not protected by the prison system. Then I would enjoy terrorizing their lives until they committed suicide from the stress and fear.

I hope Greece is forced to leave the Euro, and thereby starts a process to bring the whole damn thing down.

Nine times out of ten, the service in Japan is much better than anything back home.

If I were a woman, then China. Much more likely to be taken seriously.

The Japanese actor who played the evil camp guard is blacklisted in Japan.
I highly doubt Miyavi cares; he makes enough money from his music. And to be honest, based on his performance in that movie, he should stick to his music.

As a general rule, when on a first date, I always pay the whole bill. However, I make a note of whether the girl made an offer to pay (and whether or not she seemed genuinely willing to do so). On the next date, I would expect to go halves.

I'm a non-Japanese caucasian male, been living in Japan over a decade. I've dated my fair share of Japanese women. I honestly have zero interest in having a relationship with another one, let alone getting married. Being single is so much easier. I also enjoy not being treated as a living ATM. Right now, I can pretty much do what I want, when I want. Also, as a word of warning to newbies, unless the Japanese girl you're dating has lived overseas before (and I don't mean two weeks in LA or Hawaii), then I honestly think you're in for a world of pain. Japanese guys don't need to date Japanese women for sex; they can (and do anyway) visit soaplands. So, aside from societal pressure, I don't see why there is such a premium put on marriage.

Same as Japan as a whole then.
