Kuroneko - you are my hero today! Wonderful. So it's actually the designer outwitting the copycats and the critics. By the other posts here so far it's clearly working. Would I buy it? Hell no! But this whole thing is hilarious.

Above points all very interesting, indeed, and well understood. Question for those of you living there presently: I notice the largest language on that sign is Japanese. How are the locals doing with the suggested etiquette? In my experience [many protracted visits over the last 17 years] most Japanese won't show deference to handicapped, elderly, or even pregnant women. Most young people, salarimen, kogeru, etc. will usually adopt the eyes-closed-furrowed-brows posture instead of giving up a seat on the train... Please tell me I'm getting that wrong?

Just fair and balanced business as usual. It is amusing to see what happens when elites clash and how the rest of the working class perceive what comes out in the news.

Solitary confinement is probably one of the worst possible punishments ever. How long was he in that condition, I wonder?

I recall a similar story not long ago. I commented then that it was probably the perp's first time and that he'd likely escalate. Last time he just cut the hair - now the face too... Do they have detectives over there that can follow this sort of reasoning and maybe anticipate his next move? The guy probably wants to get caught as bad as we want him off the streets. Get on it!
