As if 'apologising' for something that occurred 70 years ago will improve Japan's security situation. But JT is no stranger to cheap shots who will use any opportunity for J-bashing.

I have to admit your analysis of how Japan's music industry kills real talent is spot on. Good job with that. It's basically a huge bully behemoth which attempts to smother and indimidate everything in its path, with no scruples to speak of. Funnily enough, we can observe this very same behavior elsewhere...

Powerful enough to prevent Americans from selling in Japan? if so I will develop a new found respect for labels like Being Giza even if they turned post-Juice B'z into a boyband

Certainly, that catchy American song that goes something like "California bitches uh-oh-uh-oh-uh-oh" never made a noticeable presence on the Oricon charts despite all the hype about it in the Anglo-American world. What's there to explain other than to recall that the Japanese market is not the same?

I reckon the song would've attracted attention in Japan had it not been performed by an obasan and a shady man known for undergoing drug rehab. But who am I to judge that the song was crap because it failed to break into the Japanese market that's currently affixated on SKE and SDN?

Too late!

That song by Ayumi was great, I think it outsold Utada for 1999.

Wow, I only started to appreciate her work when I became an adult. As a dumb male teenager I liked the young prettier looking twin-tailed Mai Kuraki alot more. Now when I listen and compare Secret of My Heart to Automatic I reflect on how much of a dumb kid I was.

I was that dumb kid too

Not sure what you are going on about I never said foreign actors maybe I wasn't clear what I mean by "international collaboration" was that if they had worked with some of the better CG studios and possibly joint producers and distributors and got some real actors (and Japan has some very good real actors) and not a bunch of "talento" that couldn't act their way out of a paper bag (think of some of the great Kurosawa movies and how crappy they would have been no matter how great a director he was if he had had to use the likes of SMAP members!).

Yeah, they could've contacted New Zeland's Weta studios and hired local actors, and all dialogue in English!

Hurrrrr..this movie may have references that crudely challenge my learnings that all Japanese military elements during WWII were evil. I am not going to watch it durrrr...

I wouldn't expect any less blatant waffling/fence straddling action by the current NZ government that is dismayed by the facts that more and more Japanese tourists are abandoning their country for Australia after realising what a hole NZ is, and at home the left-wing opposition including the Green Party are making significant gains in the polls.

Not that this is the main point of the story, but this is a bit of a simplistic view of why Kyoto wasn't bombed; there was also the fact that if the ancient capital was levelled US command believed they would have had a harder time getting cooperation from the Japanese.

You cannot believe some of the US arguments FOR dropping the nukes on Kyoto: one of the points was that since the inhabitants lived in such a culturally rich urban centre, they would be the most intelligent people and Japan and hence would best understand the significance of the bombs o-O. Talking about aerial bombing, this article suggests that the Americans were able to accurately mark their targets on the ground contrary to most allied sources that the destruction of residential areas in cities were collateral damage from the inaccuracy in dropping the incendiary bombs.

An appropriate amount of bullying is tolerated in the west as it helps in children's character building, but Japanese kids take the bullying way too far.

I actually want Asia to see Japan not intervene in any conflict, whether it be South Korea roasting under the barrage of the North's artillery fire, or the Chinese turning to the sea. We'll just tell anyone crying for help to go look to other nations that aren't being frivolously accused of resorting to WWII style imperialism whenever they attempt to defend themselves. :D

An fully elected upper house is un-necessary for a unitary state like Japan. But it to be in Japan's nature to fill in the gap that was left by the abolished Lords chamber.

I'd hate to see Britain adopt anything similar to the HoC when they eventually abolish their House of Lords.

“drawn no conclusions and released no data. We will follow the facts and inform the public when our investigation comes to an end.”

Translation: we already know most of what's causing the faults but we won't tell Toyota what they are. In the meantine we urge Americans to buy American.

It's safe to say that the High Court judges of this nation's obsession with suspended sentences spared Bethune from a direct trip to the "no-underpants" slammer. Whether you break a baby's legs or stage a quasi-prank on the high seas, you'll end up on the streets either way.

Says the J-basher, WWII happened 60 years ago, Japan is now a stable democracy and yet this kind of hate speech spews.

Japan cannot detract from its self-sovereign duty to defend itself with its utmost capacity with respect to the size of the foreign threat just because of irrational Japano-sceptic Asians, American fearmongering and cost effectiveness of outsourcing defense to a foreign nation.

But that's a tall order for a bunch of sheeps.
