This is very concerning.
I’ve played Pro Evo since 1995, it’s always been a classic game and well-known for being a better representation of football than big budget FIFA.
The 2021 version is truly excellent, as it usually is.
I hope this can be fixed.

What an idiot that guy was.
He put his job in front of some daft “principles”.
-1 ( +3 / -4 )
Yeah, he probably doesn’t care what anyone thinks of him.
I do care what people think about me, especially my work colleagues and people I am in regular contact with.
I know of one foreigner who is a Covid non-believer, anti-vaxxer and general conspiracy theorist who refuses to wear a mask and only makes a token gesture of waving his hands under sanitizers when instructed to do so by restaurant staff.
I find him really childish and embarrassing to the point of me not wanting to go anywhere with him in public.

I’m not comfortable with breaking social taboos.
I don’t want to be the one guy sitting on a train not wearing a mask getting dirty looks from everybody.

A further point on masks - I’m an English teacher and it is virtually impossible to gauge students reactions and whether or not they understand something when they are all wearing masks.
It’s also nigh on impossible to remember everyone’s names when you never get to see their faces, only their eyes and foreheads.

On the subject of face masks discussed above, I also despair at the thought of them being standard wear in Japan forever.
Yes, in Japan they have always been worn but not by everybody, all year round and in all seasons.
Yes, it’s not a huge sacrifice to have to wear one but I too am tired of having to. They aren’t comfortable and, on hot and humid days they make it difficult to breathe properly.

2 years? I expected 15 years as that was repeatedly mentioned in every story about him.
It hardly seems worth the huge expense and effort that has gone into this trial.
It therefore seems very petty by the Japanese prosecutors.

The more right wing of the two male candidates who it was obviously going to be between.
How depressingly predictable.

it hasn’t crossed your mind that the large number of vaccinations administered has contributed to the lower numbers….?

Two week quarantine?

I trust Suga was immediately taken away to commence his two week quarantine, like his government are ordering everyone else to do.

They’ll end the SOE, people will start going out normally again, cases will rise and we’ll have another SOE.
I’ve seen this film before.

You can’t be serious
I’ve never heard that idea proposed in my life.

As much as you would like it to be, we can’t all just close our eyes, make a wish and everything will go back to life as it was.

16 years for a hit by and run drink driving death, that’s a serious sentence.
It just makes it more difficult for me to understand some of the other sentencing in the courts in Japan. For example, I’ve seen parents and guardians who have abused and neglected children under their care, leading to those dearhs receive much less severe custodial sentences than this case.
I’ve seen shorter murder sentences too.
Maybe in Japan it just depends which judge you get, what crimes he really hates and what kind of mood he is on the day.

I see the Japan Today “have a go heroes” are out in force again.
Would they really tackle an armed man, hell bent on killing or maiming random people?
I bet most of them wouldn’t.

Yeah, and was there not some nonsense being spouted by a lot of folk here about “the spirit of Tohoku”?
I’m sure the unvaccinated people of Tohoku are delighted about this mess.

I’m not claiming discrimination, I realise this will make foreign travel virtually impossible for Japanese people too.
Do you have a link to any of these websites?

And, what form will this quarantine take?
In your own home or in a hotel?
The former I could handle, the latter would suck.

“Japan will still require returnees to quarantine for 2 weeks, even if fully vaccinated.”
I feared this was going to be the case. Bang goes a lot of foreigners’ hopes of being able to leave this country to go on vacation or visit their home countries for a decent amount of time.
I wonder how long this will apply for.

You sure love the gallows mate. I think you would have enjoyed living in medieval times.
In this case, I think I agree that the death penalty is a fitting punishment.
0 ( +3 / -3 )
I am sorry to disappoint the normal band of bloodthirsty “hang ‘em high” death penalty advocates among the Japan Today posting community but this man will not receive the death penalty.
He will receive a custodial sentence, causing death by dangerous driving is not punishable by the death penalty in Japan, or any other country I know of.
The case last week when a driver was sentenced to death after killing people on the side of the road was different because he was deemed to have intended to kill them.

What’s he doing drunk while working at 3pm? Throw the book at him.
Alcohol is a terrible drug, by the way.

Oh, come on man. I drive in Nagoya every day and I see the most dangerous, selfish, thoughtless things on a daily basis on the roads here. Come over she see for yourself
Call me a racist if you like but I stand by my comments and I’m sure many people here agree with me.
Perhaps you’re just one of these people who won’t hear a bad word spoken about Japan.
By the way, I only referenced Japan, not other Asian countries.

Still, on the topic of roundabout and Japan as a country and people.
Their implementation would take a huge re-education of drivers and change in the way things are done. Most of us have lived here long enough to realise that Japan rarely changes the way things are done

Roundabouts just wouldn’t work in Japan. In all aspects of life, Japanese people are used to being told what to do and this includes on the road with traffic lights. And, with the greatest of respect, they aren’t the best drivers in the world, especially here in Aichi
Can you imagine the amount of bumps and crashes that would occur at roundabouts? Especially involving K-cars driven by middle-aged and elderly women. It would be chaos.

2 kilograms? That’s a lot. What a silly man to attempt to smuggle or send that amount (or any amount) in to a foreign country, especially one with such strict drug laws.
However, the comments some people make on this website about marijuana are incredible. Do they not realise that this drug is legal in many countries and many states of the USA?
These people seem to be unable to differentiate it from heroin, crack cocaine or methamphetamine, in the way they describe its users and the effect it supposedly has on people and society.
Alcohol causes far more social and health problems.
