Posted in: 3 reasons Japanese movies today suck, according to distributor and producer Adam Torel See in context

There's still a few gems left. Hirokazu Koreeda and Mamoru Hosoda are worthy of mention, although they don't receive as much attention as they should.

i am more concerned for the 3% who actually believe that regularly exchanging emails or LINE messages with a guy other than their hubby is an act of cheating. Talk about social life...

Sure, she's cute, but honestly, I could find at least 5 a day on the train, any train line, better than her. The eye candy is everywhere.

Which train line do you ride everyday??? You need to tell me!

i don't appreciate the sarcasm in this title one bit. While one could argue the current government is the product what the majority of japanese people wanted, these people who oppose against the amendment to Article 9 deserve to have their voices heard. When they are faced with only half-decent opposition party and lacklustre of political dialogue, they are forced to take to the streets.

Posted in: Japan's population marks steepest decline ever See in context

Overpopulation is a problem. So is the fact that more than 40% of the local population will be 65+. Why are people disliking comments for pointing that out?

I say take away his reproductive organ as punishment, as he clearly doesn't deserve a child nor does he want one.

Excuse my french, Nom de dieu de putain de bordel de merde de saloperie de connard d'enculer ta mère.

Give the man no audience. He deserves no attention, and he will not get any. When people are uniting to botch your attempt to give a lecture on how to abuse women on the street, they are not interfering with your freedom of speech. They are saying they find your ideas atrocious, and they are showing you the door.

Posted in: Abe still neutral on whether to raise sales tax: Amari See in context

There is little to be achieved if higher taxes are coupled with higher inflation. I think Abe should go back to focusing more on boosting domestic GDP. He can start by not raising sales tax.

Posted in: 10 instances when Japanese people feel thankful to be Japanese See in context

Oddly strange to see so many people drinking Haterade. You people need to chill out.

Go around asking Muricans "when do you feel proud to be Murican," what kind of responses do you think you'll get? Aren't you at least glad that you know what Japanese people regard as special for being Japanese? Sure, not all of them may have had exposure to foreign culture overseas, but they're just telling what they like about Japan.

Posted in: Sankei’s Seoul bureau chief faces charge of libeling Park See in context

I am baffled. Could somebody tell me what draws the line between "freedom of speech/press" and "criminal libel?"

If articles such as this one in question is enough to start an inquisition based on 'online hatred', then what about tabloids? Surely tabloids have said much worse things about the president.

This was a very careless move, and could be a political disaster. The scariest thing about this is not the part about Korean police force questioning the Japanese newspaper. It is the fact that when the target is Japanese, whom many Koreans dislike (with excessive ardour), they seem alarmingly willing to forgive Park's government for tramping on freedom of the press.

Posted in: Japan blasts Chinese bid for U.N. recognition of Nanjing massacre See in context

Dear commentors, many of you are playing exactly the same blame game that Japan and China are.

Both Japan and China need to mend their wrong approach to diplomacy. Striking fear of military conflict while spewing excuses such as 'to cherish peace' will not do any good to the region, let alone bring stability to East Asia. They should focus more on trying to talk directly to each other. Neither side will yield, but why should that stop them from doing business with each other? "I hate your guts, but I love your money" seems like a reasonable basis for both countries to be at least cooperative in terms of trading import/exports. Plus, having a higher stake in each other's land would also discourage any military confrontation.

Posted in: China hits back at U.S., Japan for 'provocative' remarks See in context

It's sad to see how little force international law has, and how little respect certain world powers have for it. Law stops becoming effective the moment you stop upholding it, and that's exactly what China is doing.

You can see a similar pattern with Russia here as well. A big country with a big army with the first move advantage of intruding another country's territory and taking a "defensive" stance. They understand that their relatively weaker neighbours (and the rest of the world for that matter) are not going to risk going to war, so they can continue to keep claiming right of land, sea, air, resources, etc etc. Not to mention both China and Russia have veto rights to prevent UN from intervening. What a dysfunctional family UN has become despite all their efforts.

Lesson of the story here; world is run by greed, and history is bound to repeat itself. :(

Don't try to over-analyze this. He simply paid tributes to the Japanese war dead. It is clearly different from the Yasukuni shrine in that it has no political or nationalistic sentiment.

And I don't see any Korean or chinese news outlet making a fuss about it, so neither should you.
