Posted in: Japanese teacher beats up student for making fun of his body by calling him anime character name See in context

The teacher was clearly wrong to beat up a student yes, but the brat was wrong first and should have been hauled in front of the headmaster/school board and then sent home in shame to his parents as punishment. If you don't respect your teachers you have no place in the school. A bully like that should get some punichment too and the parents should have to step up and face the fact that they have raised a bullying idiot and do something about it.

Great, now the Great Leader can drive around in a "new" car and can discard his old Volvo from the batch of cars they ordered from Sweden in the 70s but never payed for!

Get rid of the Yakuza fools once and for all... They have no place in a modern society.

Posted in: Coco Ichibanya merch for fashion lovers See in context

4950 Yen for a t-shirt? It's not even very fashionable...

I don't think so! Coco Ichibanya should pay ME for be a walking commercial for them. ;D

Posted in: The waters of Hiroshima: Remembrance and life See in context

I was there 6 years ago today and I will never forget the feelings I got from walking around the area, the monuments, the museum and Ground Zero. I was a peace activist in my youth, fighting against the nuclear race in the 80:s between the US and USSR. Even then I knew some about the horrors in Hiroshima and Nagasaki but I never imagined that I one day would stand there myself and take in the atmosphere and history. It was a moment that I felt deep in my soul and I had a hard time to keep my tears back and I wasn't alone. I saw other tourists, mostly american, at the monument, silently bowing their heads, tears streaming. I think it hit them harder, knowing that it was their country that did this...

I love Une-sans resolve and mission in life and it's great that it is continued. I will definitely come again and help keep this legacy alive. We shall never forget!

Posted in: Hit Japanese anime genre offers escape, second chances See in context

That's bad news... I was hoping this trend would fade soon. :P Most Isekai is plain boring and one after another is just copies of earlier popular ones. The "heroes" always have some special power or some sort of bad computer game... Very natural. If I wanted that I rather PLAY a game instead of watching it.

In my opinion only one Isekai in ten is worth the time. Those are the ones with an original and well written story and characters. The slow life-versions is more my kind of Isekai I think. But money talks and this is an easy way of making money fast without big effort or demand for quality.

Posted in: Trump struggles to adjust to crisis presidency See in context

Struggling? The man haven't got a clue! (No news there...) He is only thinking about himself, his business and his friends business, everything else is not worth his attention. That man have been a total disaster for the US and I can just hope he will be replaced by ANYONE because no one can do a worse job out of it than that gigant baby have already.

Posted in: All Japanese customers banned from restaurant…in Japan?!? See in context

I myself have worked in the restaurant business for over 20 years and I totally understand him and think he is bold and does the right thing. You get so fed up with customers who can't behave or think that their every whim is law. Those people have to get down from their high horses and get a firm grip on reality. I am not a servant or a slave you can boss around as you like, I provide a valuable service and should be treated with the same respect I show the customer.

I have shown people the door when they couldn't behave inside the restaurant i worked at, and they got angry and threatend to boycott our place. Good riddance I said, "we don't need rude customers like you!"

So, two thumbs up to Arima! :D I hope he won't loose to much on this protest and I also hope that people understand why he does this and support him.

Posted in: In Japan, Trump leaves allies, enemies and staff guessing See in context

The best way to handle an insane and unstable person is to talk nice to him, flatter him and just hope he leaves without so much fuzz. Then call the nice men in the white coats to come and collect him as soon as possible. 

So, good jobb PM Abe.
