Is it supposed to be funny when you have Season 1, Season 3 but no Season 2 for some shows? It is like watching half of a movie, there are too much missing series to make me come back to Hulu Japan. Where is Carnivale? Californication? Nip Tuck? and many others, they said they signed with HBO and other studios but too many things are missing, some shows are just too old and seen too many times (Murder, She Wrote...etc)
My guess is that there is some pressure or sabotage coming from Skyperfect TV and J-Com. I went back to torrenting.
The Walking Dead Season 4 is back BTW...

The U.S. State Department said Nuland had apologized for her remarks and pointed the finger at Moscow as being responsible for the bugging.
How does it feel being bugged? Bad? You do not like that? NSA, PRISM, Snowden, remember?
The pot calling the kettle black.

Moody's is still rating companies and countries? Isn't Moody's one of these credit rating agencies that played a big role in facilitating the subprime mortgage swindle? Why do we still listen to them?
However I must say, Sony is not in the company it used to be, I was shocked when I found out the new Playstation 4 was made in China by Foxconn, I still have a first generation PS2 and it is made in Japan. Sony used to be managed by engineers and technicians, now they are all about MBA, MBA and MBA...
Are there still Sony factories? Sony is turning into a fabless company.

I have had numerous friend come and stay and they have ALL complained about the lack of English here.
This news is about ASEAN tourists who happen to come from non-english speaking countries...I think most of these tourists expect more informations in chinese, tagalog, malaysian or korean rather than english....

China media urge action against Japanese planes but not U.S.
Do we really need to remind you the Treaty of Mutual Cooperation and Security between the United States and Japan? Shooting japanese planes is like shooting US planes. Same consequences...

Posted in: Street vendors of lunch boxes will have to obtain licenses for food sanitation management, and the metropolitan government will oblige the vendors to use refrigerants and thermometers. See in context
I hope they crack on all those fake kebab vans and stalls. They all selling horrible food and counterfeit kebab in every festival and parks in Kanto. They are quite so disguting, guys are waiting for an easy victim while playing their smartphones! You order a kebab and soon after that they drop their smartphone and start cutting the meat and touching the bread. OMG! Same fingers used to play the smartphone!
Needless to say that kebab here have poor quality, they use coleslaw instead of lettuce. I hope all those fake kebab to close thanks to the new rules. I am even surprised no one died yet while eating a kebab here.

They deliberately (Asahi) stuck a finger in the eye of someone they perceive as an enemy. Sending peace talks and any possibility of finding the remains of the kidnaped Japanese citizens to impossibility.
Was there any peace talk in the making before this report? Was NK about to free some abducted japanese? Of course not.

Posted in: We want Japanese lawmakers to create a system that would check on whether people are the victims of domestic violence and make it so that children cannot be easily returned from Japan to the United St See in context
Japanese women will only have to hint at domestic violence
Are you implying domestic violence never occure in japanese wife/american husband couples?

I don't see discrimination because all tattooed people are banned from some onsen and warnings are printed in Japanese and in English.
I think the tattoo rule at onsens is just another stick to beat foreigners with at tomes
I already saw japanese guys with tattoos on their arms. Those japanese cannot use to a lot of onsen just like foreigners. Most of onsen that ban tattoos do not care if you have a Hello Kitty, a dragon, a girl's name or a tribal tattoo they just ban any tattoos or "body art" like some of them print it on their flyers.
Now let's see what some foreigners who feel victimized offer: let all tattooed foreigners use onsen and ban japanese tattooed (we all know all tattoed japanese are yakuza, right?...), what does it look like? Banning natives and giving privileges to foreigners? It just reminds me apartheid...
When travelling just follow the rules. When in Rome...

He said it is "fun and easy" to teach the 5S about your fingerprint
It is also fun and easy to share your fingerprint with NSA.
The company said fingerprints will not be stored on its servers.
No, they will be stored directly on NSA ones.

Does Japan always do what America orders it to do?
Japan is the 51th State, the House of Councillors and the House of Representatives are full of puppets, any new law, any new rule, any new regulation in Japan is decided in Washington. Everything that is decided in Washington in automatically approved in Japan. Sheeps...

Very strange coincidence: in yesterday's (sep. 2) JapanTimes newspaper there was a feature article about the rise and fall of one those nigerians bar owners. Very interesting and well documented:
Be warned it is quite long but worth reading.

The only reason cops busted him is because he did not pay the monthly protection money. Let's face it, a lot of us here on JT and in Japan know those guys, their business, we all know they have been scamming people for years. US embassy posted warnings about spiked drinks on their website, japanese cops also know. However nobody did something. That bar opened 7 years ago.
Seven years of scams and nobody moved? Come on! There is something rotten in the state of Denmark.
Everytime one get busted we find exactly the same scheme. Japanese wife, spouse visa, borrowed money from nigerian mafia/community (sure he did not get the loan from CitiBank). There are so many like that one. One bar closed, ten other other will open with exactly the same scheme. Until tax office and cops decide to do something, they are no reasons scammers to stop their business.

It is becoming more and more enjoyable to watch westerners like NZ passing such laws. We also saw UK arresting the partner of a journalist who knows some secrets and questioning him for hours under Terrorism Act and in the meantime lecturing other non-democratic countries about press freedom and about freedom of opinion.

He said the feelings of unfairness reached their height in the late 1980s and early 1990s but still persist today.
Japan had plenty of time to build larger roads, bigger streets and wide parking lots that could fit US cars but it did nothing, nothing! they keep building small houses with small parking lots, tiny roads. I understand US frustration. Why did Japan get not bigger, wider? :-)

I'm not fooling myself; you missed my point.
I'm sorry I misunderstood your message, my english in not enough good to understand all nuances.
For those who are too naive about these guys (and yes I say guys) just look for women on that JT picture...where are the women among them? Do you see girls, women? of course not, no women are allowed. In normal life with normal people when a demo takes place, you usually see men and women unhappy about something and taking the streets. Not with these guys.
Don't you find this strange? We can find find few videos on Youtube of muslims demos in Tokyo with these guys but everytime I watch them I do not see a lot of girls maybe not even one. Last time I saw them making a demo about the infamous Youtube trailer "The Innocence of Muslims" and some of them were calling for death of the director...right here in Japan, right now, bearded guys calling for death of a guy who made a movie.
If they are so unhappy about what is going on in Egypt, they should go back to Egypt and fight there not in Japan. I always found it pathetic to make a demo in front of embassies, it is not just the embassies were important or could change something back home. It is ridiculous.
