Posted in: Nishiya, just 13, gives Japan sweep in street skateboarding See in context

I guess people like Yuto and Momiji have had to earn their street skills in the skate parks in Japan, and with that have won Gold medals for Japan, but I wonder if part of them would love to be like their western counterparts and skate more of the real thing.

Maybe Japanese schools can do that?

So, Korea was better then?

Japan lost by 0.14 cm. That's a hair slim margin which happened only as the wind in the final second shifted in Korea's favour. Korea was lucky.

They had like what 5-10 cases and did lockdown while Tokyo has 1k+ everyday and Olympics are on.

Well, last time I checked, Tokyo's population was bigger than Australia's population.

@Zichi

Don't ask Britain how it got all of that stuff for it's museums tho. Most of it is stolen from other countries.

Who owns an 8K TV?

Well, i own the Sony Z8h

Why didn't they tell us about this high tech we and many other million s would have reserved their 100K to get a new TV 

Wasn't there a news article recently that sales of Higher end TV's were soaring because of the olympics?

Shame on the protesters who are desperately searching up things and desperately trying to cancel the Olympics. Now the opening ceremony will be nothing as planned and the whole world will we watching us.

Posted in: 'Titane' wins top Cannes honor as Spike Lee slips up See in context

That certainly makes you wonder, does it? Then again 2020 was a lousy year for movies in the first place. Come to think of it, I can't recall when the last 'good movie year' truly was.

2018 was the best year for international movies in the last 20 years imo.

 I still can't imagine how that cliche-ridden piece of garbage 'Avatar' got all those awards and box office revenues like it did. Hell, I feel the same way about the 'Titanic' 

I just stopped caring about those kind of movies.

Titane was a great movie and i loved watching it. It's a 8/10 for me. A hero and Drive my car were my 10/10 movies of cannes this year. Memoria was a fantastic movie too but the slow pace sometimes got onto my nerves while watching it. My worst movies of cannes were Flag Day and Emergency Declaration.

Yaa. It's about having sex with a car.

Is this the start of Japanese people starting to appreciate quality vehicles as opposed to whitegoods on wheels?

What logic would you give for increasing sales of lexus and Acura in other countries then?

Anyway, Hamaguchi won the best screenplay. Personal opinion:- Drive my car and A hero are much much much better films.

Great film.. but i was really hoping for drive my car to win, especially after it won the best film award from the International Film Critic Federation.

Posted in: Hosoda: Japanese anime has problem with women and girls See in context

To be turned on by Manga anime girls...

Naah man, That's art. That's what is the intention of artist. It doesn't just apply to manga girls. A lot of girls get turned on by manga boys too. Anyone get's turned on by them but getting obsessed over them is weird.

Jdrama is popular in Asia but is much less likely to sell in the West than Kdrama, so there is less synergy available.

Actually, Alice in borderland was the most watched non-English show in netflix last year.

SK tended to turn a blind eye to fansubbing and YT uploads

Actually, they got paid to upload them, they all even maintained English twitter pages right from the beginning regardless of whether they're popular or not while Japan didn't do that, right now, Jpop is also gaining popularity, in tik-tok and instagram reels, Jpop songs by Yoasobi etc are topping the charts and Yoasobi, king gnu, Kenshi Yonezu, eve, Zutomayo and others are gaining a Huge fanbase overseas.

I think BiSH would have gone down really well at the big Western music festivals, but the pandemic has pulled the rug from under that.

Yes, I agree too. At Coachella in 2019, Perfume was featured in the best acts of Coachella lists while blackpink was featured in none. J-music industry is finally opening it's eyes tho. Johnny and Associates opened a twitter page in English last month (they're nowhere close to their Korean counterparts in marketing but they're atleast starting to try). Sony Music Japan's "The First Take" is a Huge Hit and and gaining fans from overseas.

Posted in: Facial recognition tech fights coronavirus in Chinese city See in context

what scares the hell out of me is how many governments, including Japan's, are salivating at acquiring this tech and using it.

Actually, Japan actually has this tech already. NEC is world leader in this. Japan isn't using it because it respects Privacy of it's citizens.

 am certainly no expert nor do I pretend to be. I can only go by what those who study this say. The Harvard study referenced below is "guesstimating" 2 to 8 weeks

Over 48% of people over 65 have been fully vaccinated and they accounted to 97% of covid deaths in Japan.

Only moderna, we've still got around 55 million pfizer doses left, no signs of slow down in corporate inoculations.

@klausdorth well, not for long. 2.5 million doses administered in a single day according to friday's update. Try to get vaccinated as soon as possible.

While the management of Nissan might be at fault, It'd would be foolish to not acknowledge how stupid Ghosn's strategy was. He's a brilliant guy who did great in 90's and 2000's but after that, he messed up. Especially after the global financial crisis. He's a human after all.

It's better if the people posting nonsense in the comment section here read this article to know how exactly Ghosn destroyed Nissan. Especially you @bokuda.

I'm sure you must have already read this but seems like you're having fun dissing Nissan's management just because it's based in Japan.
