Posted in: Kitano discusses new film on homosexual relations in samurai era, Japan's showbiz world See in context

eek sorry Kitano actually played Toshizo Hijikata! (my favorite Shinsengumi maaan!!! pardon me) and he is also attracted to Matsuda, though not as crazily as Asano.

Posted in: Kitano discusses new film on homosexual relations in samurai era, Japan's showbiz world See in context

Kitano has actually played as (not-so) side character in Nagisa Ogisa's Shinsengumi-themed movie Taboo (Gohatto 御法度) in 1999, where the main character (Tadanobu Asano) had a near-obsession passion for bishonen Ryuhei Matsuda, so he's already quite familiar with the subject. He also played a very violent yakuza who had a master-(sex) slave relationship with his host-like ikemen underling in Gonin*, so he always stroke me as someone who wasn't anti-gay. Maybe his 2012 foot-in-mouth same-sex marriage joke was just said trying to be funny (though he failed miserably.)

he played Shinsegumi boss Isami Kondo, who wasn't involved in a same-sex relationship in the movie, but he was more of an observer/bystander of Asano and Matsuda's (very) tense relationship.

Posted in: Japan to scrap current non-digital health insurance cards in 2024 See in context

if you're not a permanent resident, you have to renew your mynumber card every single time your visa is due for renewal. it's such a hassle that after the second time I reverted back to the green paper version; they should really address the issue if they want people to apply for a card.
