I quite like the group, there songs are quite good, and uplifting and musical, Iam sure there are going to be people that will tell me that I am wrong, but if you listen to the music that my son listens to, we its driery, monotoned, flat with out music scales, they walk around with baseball caps on the wrong way grabbing their crotch, most are talentless and they certainly can't dance or sing. where as AKB can, I certainly can't remember Any of my sons groups or songs let alown any lyrics, where on AKB I can name there songs and sing along to them ( by my self) so each to there own I say.

In the history lessons, do they ever bring up the second world war? and do they ever talk about how Japan treated its prisoners? and do they ever teach kids all about Cambodia, and the death camps of Germany?
Depending on what age the kids were I might show all of the video, or if they were quite young I might of stopped the vid at the point they kill him. there is lots of violent stuff on the TV.

Joeintokyo, why should the teachers be sacked? does the government or local schools have an anti bullying policy ? if not, why not? why are you blaming them? has the child or his parents reported this? unless there is anti bullying policy in place and or if they don't know about these attacks, what can they do? but if they do have a anti bullying policy, well they seemed to have failed on this occasion, and they do need to get a grip and possibly disaplanery action should be taken. the other thing is that this attack took place out of school not in school, teachers can't be held responsible for other peoples actions after or out of school. this should be a matter for the police.

All I can say is what a lucky girl she is, the mind boggles at what could have happened IF she had got into the car with him, although he says He wanted to get to know her better because she's cute, we all know thats not adding up in our heads!, yet again is it not time Japan had a sex offenders register that all convicted sex offenders were listed and made known to the police, including EX police offices?

Huuum, I can see where they are going with them to strive for perfection and high grades, but the Japanese education system does not seem or to allow any room for flexibility, what happens if a child is Dyslexic? or if they are not as bright as there other students. would they get swept under neith a carpet? whats the point of cramming in all of this education when the less bright students can't keep up! lets face it we all can't learn at the same pace. will this lead to more suicides? I hope not.

What I love about the UK is that we have gone BACK to the old HS125 trains that we use to run in the 1980,s because the modern train are unreliable, and this our idea on going forward in the UK!!!!! and it can/might get unto a whopping 125 mph ....OOooh dear! how the rest of the world laughs at us! (and it will be late and dirty and expensive) The Japanese lead the way in rail service and I take my hat off to them.

The assumption is that the child was born alive, did any one consider it might have been still born? could this have lead to the girl disposing of the child's body in this manner? either way its a sad situation for all concerned
