The radioactive water ( not fit for drinking) can be ingested by sea life and who consumes fish from Fukushima?

Radiation from the plant has been and will continue to increase-dissipation is a myth!

Well, Tritium unlike other radioactive substances won't concentrate in the food chain.

Posted in: Tokyo reports 49 coronavirus cases; nationwide tally 369 See in context

@samit basu

The number of Covid tests increased to 170,000 a day in mid-August, when 20,000 new daily cases were found. Recently, the number of tests decreased to 30,000 to 60,000 a day, except for the weekend. The number of tests has certainly decreased, but in Tokyo, the positive testing rate, which soared to 24 percent in mid-August, dropped to 1.8 percent on October 5. The positive result rate per test dropped too dramatically to say that “positive cases decreased because people don’t get tested enough.”

FYI, COVID test is no longer free in Japan, you have to pay 20,000 yen out of pocket to get it.

That's the reason for COVID positivity fall.

Never has been free right? unless you get one by doctor's recommendation.

Japanese drama's need better actors and actresses. A lot of them just overdo their acting and that just kills the immersion, even if the story and production quality is great. At least in my opinion.

Naah, nothing bad about actors here. Best Japanese actors are on part with best western and other asian actors. The problem. I attend a lot of film festivals so, i'm aware of both the good and bad sides of the industry. The Problem is Budget.

Japan's strength is its anime industry but anime is just so oversaturated. There are like 200 or more releases every year and the overwhelming majority of them are garbage. Quantity over quality. Not to mention the slave like work conditions that animators have to deal with. Even as the industry grows its is slowly destroying itself from within.

Most of it isn't Garbage. Few are garbage. most of them are mediocre(just for timepass like those cringy romance kdramas) but let's not forget that every year we get to see more than 30 Excellent anime an year. The anime fandom cares about those 30 and there are well maintained and run(fan made) online discuss forums on which help the fandom on what to watch and what not to. but yaa, there are way too many studios which run wild here and that's kinda bad from a long term perspective.

So, it's very easy to market anime or Pokemon compared to more complicated stories like Nobody Knows or Battle Royale.

I'm sorry but Anime is filled way more complicated stories way better than Nobody Knows and Battle Royale if you aren't aware.

@Grant

no, it isn't a Battle Royale copy. it's similar but in battle royale but it's more a copy of Kaiji, Liar game and As the gods will.

The initial 4-5 episodes of squid games is almost entirely Kaiji, the episode 6 red light green light game is a Shot to Shot copy of Daruma game from As the gods will, the last episodes didn't matter anyway cause they were bad.

@NAM

Try watching Alice in Borderland (netflix original released last year).

Japan ranks around the middle of Asian nations in terms of Covid death rate per capita. There is ZERO evidence to suggest they resist the virus "better than anywhere on earth".

Ranks in the middle while having the oldest population in the entire world huh? Not bad Japan. Not bad at all.

Posted in: All-new 2023 Nissan Z makes world debut See in context

Topspeed and thedrive are just as good in Auto Journalism as IGN and Polygon in videogames.

While the current Z is inspired from the previous generation Z, A lot of changes have been made to the previous platform for the current Z which makes it almost an entirely new platform. The engine part, using the same engines as infinity Q 60 Red sport doesn't mean that it's recycled.

Posted in: All-new 2023 Nissan Z makes world debut See in context

@Samit Basu

this was made possible because most of underlying mechanical parts and chassis are old and recycled from the previous model.

Basically, Nissan is broke and can't afford to spend money on new platform engineering, so it keeps stretching old platform and parts, and hope to compete on price only.

BULLSH1T every thing was built from the ground up. Nissan isn't using recycled parts here for most underlying mechanical parts. If you know nothing, it's better that you shut up. if you're remotely aware of Nissan's turn around plan, you'd know that this is false. The whole platform was built from the ground up and the past 2 years, on the manufacturing side, Nissan actually did surprisingly able to reduce costs of several components while keeping them anew. Go home kid. You're anything but a reliable source of information. Nissan built completely new platforms for several vehicles. not just for Z.

The Internet, bookstores and media will increase even more now with anti-Korean garbage as these corrupt politicians desperately try to stay in power.

Try showing me some here in stores. I haven't seen those kind of books like 2-3 times in the last 30 years to be frank. There are anti-Japanese schools runs by Koreans here in Japan if you didn't know. What do you say about that?

Maybe Japan should start using the internal affairs card in order to respond to this sort of petty politics from China, I still have no idea why South Korea is concerned with war Criminals related to Nanjing Massacre and Unit 731 when a lot of South Koreans helped the imperial Japanese army in these acts.

Posted in: China, Russia slam Japanese ministers' visits to Yasukuni Shrine See in context

The fact that the Prime Minister of Japan and his cabinet including his minister of Defense expressed no remorse for the atrocities committed by the imperial Japanese army puts them sadly in the same class as the war criminals that are shamefully enshrined at Yasukini.

Does Imperial Japanese army exist?

I think now the key question needs to be asked whether Japan is really a developed country that belongs in the G7

well, Looking at USA and UK, Japan is actually a lot better when it comes to it's approach to war crimes.

Based upon their lack of remorse Japan no longer possesses the required moral authority and qualifications to be in the G7.

It was after the defeat at Battle of midway that the Japanese knew they couldn't win against the Americans.

@ableko45

Actually, After the pearl harbour, Japan had a second opportunity to win against the US. It was the battle of midway, but they suffered a defeat as a Japanese journalist of that time escaped to help the USA to decode Japanese communications and made USA aware of Japan's plans. He escaped to USA after he found out and gathered evidence about Unit 731 and Nanjing massacre but after the 2 nukes were dropped, he instantly regretted that decision and committed suicide the day after.
