Diversity? Great. How about some creativity, now? Some new movies, not rehashes.

Posted in: Woman arrested for robbing store says she needed money for Christmas Eve date See in context

> Police in Koshigaya, Saitama Prefecture, said Friday they have arrested a 24-year-old woman on suspicion of robbing a DVD and CD rental store on Dec 24.

Police said the woman, Misana Koyama, has admitted to the charge and quoted her as saying she needed the money for a date with her boyfriend on Christmas Eve.

According to police, Koyama entered the store — where she used to work part-time — at around 5 a.m. on Dec 24

Wow, this happened at 5 am? And the date was later that night? Talk about being well prepared.

By the way, that's a lot of 24s in the story.

I'm guessing because of the time of the robbery, the store was also opened for 24 hours a day?

and I'm the 24th comment!!!!! winning!

It's funny, no one is even mentioning anything about the fact that the precinct has just lost two officers with one incident.

I wonder if the cops will now reconsider the training and handling of rookies. Meh, since this is Japan, probably not.

So what was the point of the assaults to an elderly by this man?

To make himself feel good.

The center will send warnings about weather-related emergencies, including the risk of heatstroke and even evacuation information if necessary, she added.


Here's some ground breaking future news for you. It WILL be extremely hot. It WILL be fatal for some. It WILL be crowded during the Olympics. None of this will be a surprise.

Get on it.

Posted in: Air Japan pilot bumped off flight after failing breath test See in context

The pilot started drinking vodka at home before 5 p.m. and the company contacted him around 7:40 p.m. to request that he be on the flight. The company prohibits drinking in the 12 hours before a flight, and the pilot said he had not breached this regulation. The flight to Yangon was scheduled for 11 a.m.

Was the pilot on standby call that night?

If yes, he should've never started drinking at all.

Was the call a complete random surprise without notice?

If yes, blame the airline for not giving a proper amount of notice time. I mean sure, the flight was leaving at 11 am, but obviously the pilot needs to be there a lot earlier than 11.

The only reason she took the job was, because she actually wanted to do some work to contribute to society and help in some small way to make the world a better place.

She was tired of just sitting in the police koban, "working" and typing at the computer or going for daily bike checks at the local conbini.

My hats off to you glorious woman!

Posted in: Ex-policeman pleads guilty to shooting sergeant in 'koban,' citing mental stress See in context

Imoto was in charge of training the teenager, who graduated from police school in January last year and was posted to the police box about two weeks before the incident.

Prosecutors said the former policeman had become angry and frustrated with his work, which piled up as Imoto repeatedly directed him to correct documents the teenager had written.

Hmmm...... The kid was two weeks into the job.

As far as I can tell, either Imoto was a bad instructor, the THEN 19 year old was completely useless and never had a responsibility or job in his life, the Police Academy teaches NOTHING practical, or perhaps a little bit of all three?

But the accused's lawyers argued he was struggling with adjustment disorder due to psychological stress and his "capacity to judge between right and wrong and to control his behavior had been reduced prior to firing the handgun."

Wow! If you can't judge between right and wrong, you're definitely in the wrong profession. But then again, since this is Japan and the police force have nothing better to do but fill out paper reports and hassle bike riders, so maybe he was actually in the right profession.

Posted in: Japanese teacher punches high school boy in face; social media on his side See in context

In Hawaii there's a thing called the "moke factor."

A moke is basically a physically big bully with no job or education that could kill you with one punch. Long story short, most people are smaller than mokes and know better than to make one angry.

In Japan there is no such person as a moke, so punks like this think it's ok to mouth off to someone much larger than them. There are also little to no consequences for doing bad things in school here.

The teacher shouldn't have STARTED with a fist to the face, a slap to the cheek would've sufficed. But maybe now the yankii won't be so quick to seem so tough.

And by the way, the Yankii's little friend better learn how to focus the camera better next time.

Japan is in need of more workers...................yet they fire and arrest you because you kick it with some dirty people.

Good job Japan. If all companies knew the truth of their employees, at least 50% of the work force would also be fired and arrested.

I blame him for being sick and needs to be put to sleep. Seriously.

I blame the police for being completely useless. They need to be disbanded, all of them. Really, what good are they?

I blame her for having the ignorance of going to wherever it was. She's old enough to know what isn't right.

Everyone is a loser in this story. Thank you for printing such negativity.

Wow, what a concept.

Foreign visitors bring in money to Japan.

Now imagine if Japanese nationals also traveled around Japan freely at reasonable rates all year round. Not during Golden Week or Obon only at inflated prices. The economy would be even better than it is!

It's too bad, its much cheaper to travel abroad than it is to do it domestically. What if.........

Posted in: Osaka subway drivers win court case over right to grow beards See in context

Why is this even an issue?

Do beards improve or distract drivers from doing their job? A complete waste of time and money. Let them wear beards or not, who cares? Can they drive, that's all that matters.

When do people even see the drivers? Everyone is looking at their phones or watching the doors open and close, not a factor.

What a choice Japan. Train drivers with beards or airline pilots who drink on the job? I'll take not dying in the air for the win.

Posted in: 2 Nepalese men arrested for placing bicycle on train tracks See in context

According to police, the two men, aged 21 and 22, who are vocational school students, have admitted to the charge and said they were drunk at the time, Fuji TV reported.

It's funny. Everytime we see a story where a drunk Japanese male "can't remember a crime due to being drunk." However these two foreigners can remember all of their illegal activity despite being drunk? Something does add up.

Either way, deport them all! The two degenerates and the police officers involved.

I work with a bunch of 11 year olds. While the majority are fairly competent and more or less have common sense, there are a few that make you go hmmmmmmmm.

There have been an instance or two, where a kid does something pretty foolish right in front of everyone, and it's like "kid, are you serious?"

While this story does seem incomplete, there may not be more to it then an unfortunate accident.

Posted in: Streaming TV is getting complicated See in context

Disney can keep their Marvel, I'm over it. Star Wars, I got all the blu-rays. I would like to see some old school Mickey Mouse Club, 90's live action movies or Disney animated shorts though.

But keep it going Netflix! Hopefully all this competition and over flooding the market will lower prices across the board. If every subscription was $5 a month (600 yen?) I think more people would subscribe to mulitple channels.

Where is Nickeloden - Nick at Nite in all this? I much rather see their 80's-90's programming than Disney's.
