When I watch japanese commercials for new albums, I always think "Man, I heard that song a thousand times before!". All that AKB48 and AKB48-surrogate stuff sounds very similar. Some standard-songs, a thin voice & some stupid dancing - that is not a recipe for international success.

“In Europe,” he says, “people will use things for decades.” Hundred-yen shops might not do so well there.
Well, we have 1€-shops in Germany (~135¥-shops), for example a chain called "Tedi". But compared to Daiso, where you will find quite nice stuff from time to time, most of the stuff they sell is quite crappy and low quality. I do not expect something I buy there to last for years, but most stuff even looks like it breaks apart while opening the packaging.

Mac Donalds? Bah! If I eat a burger in Japan, it's either at Lotteria or MOS, but I rarely do.

Way too early. I don't want to hear that crap before 1st of December!
