The submerged farm road in the photo is the back road I take to work everyday.

Posted in: 6 Hollywood ripoffs of Japanese anime and manga See in context

Most of these are licensed IPs.

The term “Rip-off” implies fraud and unauthorized imitations.

As pointed out already, The Lion King is a rip-off of Kimba.

These listed IPs, however, were all sold to Hollywood.

As someone who is a foreigner and has been picked up and detained by the Japanese police, the best thing you can do is cooperate. They will process you, get all the paper work in order, and then get you back out the door.

If you cause trouble like the knot-head in this article, then they simply leave you in until you cooperate.

By this report it sounds like Mr. Adame hasn't been very cooperative.

Just pay the fine. Cooperate. Stop dicking around. Obey the rules of the host country you're in.

And although it's sometimes not that simple, Japan is pretty by the book in this regard.

I know Mrs. Ogata personally. It’s sad that they gave her no choice in the matter.

She really had no other options. She’s an elected official and can’t just skip work. She also applied to numerous daycares within the municipality. They were all full and her son got put on a six month waiting list.
