Posted in: Money no object as governments race to build chip supplies See in context

The semiconductor is insanely expensive and resource-hungry. I doubt Japan can find a way back to the old glorious days.

well as far as i know, japan ranks high as a resources provider for semiconductor manufacturing. Tokyo electron and canon are great companies and Both rank extremely high as equipment providers for most advanced semiconductor manufacturers.

@Samit Basu

The US military uses the term "East Sea" when communicating with Korean side.

actually, they shouldn't. USA has a one name policy and in all Official statements, USA must and should refer to the name of the SEA as sea of Japan.

Posted in: Japan Post, Rakuten tie up on digital delivery, cashless payments See in context

@Barto While I ain't completely disagreeing with @robert maesMar. 13  10:30 am JST, I think it's too early to say that Rakuten's investments are unsuccessful. I knew right from the very beginning that given the competition, Rakuten wouldn't be able to deliver on their promise right away, I'll be keeping a very close eye on Rakuten for the next 3 Quarters and then decide.

@Robert maes i don't think Rakuten can be classified as an amazon copy. It was established almost around the same time.

Posted in: Hikaru Utada releases new music video directed by 'Evangelion' creator Hideaki Anno See in context

[About This Music Video]

The music video is directed by the SHIN EVANGELION Director Hideaki Anno.

By request from Hikaru Utada, the Director readily agreed to work on the video, saying "Under the present circumstances [requiring measures for COVID-19], a possible way to create a music video without actually directing a video shoot would be for the artist to film herself and any other footage on her end, then sending them to me to cut and edit into the final video."

Anno sent the basic minimal asks by email including some requests for eye focus and lip sync, and the artist ventured to the outskirts of London on a video shoot with minimal staff help and all the necessary COVID precautions. The video footage garnered using various devices, including smartphones, was then sent to Anno and staff in Japan for finishing.

South Korean dramas are very popular with Japanese women because the men are sexy and romantic.

well dude, my wife says that would prefer 60 year old man named tom cruise and another 60 year old man named brad pitt over any Japanese/korean actor. She said that robert de niro in the irishman looks sexier than any of the Japanese or korean actors and she's Japanese.

@samit basu

LG uses Joled's oled panels for it's professional displays and LG's 32 inch and 40 inch TV's use Joled PANELS.

Samsung already stopped using material from Japan as of this year for semiconductor fabrication, thanks to Abe san.

not true. Samsung's lee san made more than 600 trips to Japan in the last 8 months to secure raw materials in Japan for the chips to manufacture. not only that, all the equipment in samsung's factories are made by Japanese companies. Japan and Netherlands hold 98% of market share of Semiconductor manufacturing equipment with Japan holding a bigger pie.

 LG already ate Japan's EV battery business. LG is the king of EV battery. 

well, actually CATL is the one we should be worried about. it's rapid rise is the real threat. Panasonic is least worried tho. Panasonic's market share is already in safe hands and is expected to rapidly expand from the beginning of 2022. LG should be super worried tho . Even Hyundai is now signing up with CATL according to a few reports.
