this fuss over something so silly and trivial is beyond belief and shows how widespread the liberal elite effort to destroy normal acceptance and relaxed relation to sexuality in favor of their permissive and totally biases view of these things. Because some media writer wanted to push this program in an article and make it seem like of all things a "tweet" on some social media junk channel is a worthy and authoritative indication of widespread acceptance that this is a valid issue of concern is beyond belief. Stop trying to bully us into supporting a twisted liberal permeissive agenda. How sad.

this article is yet another typical example of Liberal media twisting of reality and truth. We in the US suffer from a massive brainwashing effort by the liberal elite tiny minority to fool us into their own fantasy ideas and ideals. Iran is a dangerous and insane country run by religious fanatics. The sane and wise people of all parties in the government know this and will try to clean up the mess created by the current fool who is insulting us every day from the White House. We will regain sanity eventually but it will take hard work. this sort of media brainwashing in this article does not help.

One Piece continues to be one of the most boring and shallow of the long run anime series. I wish that Japan Today would cover more of the more worthy anime productions instead of this sort. There is a HUGE universe of Anime work going on and much of it vastly better than one Piece, and Naruto and Studio Ghiblil.

Facebook is one of the most worthless and destructive inventions of the modern Yuppie meme. I hope soon it will vanish forever. and people can get back to living a life in reality, not in cyber egotism.

Congratulations to the girls, the group is very special and much loved. I am glad their fans enjoy them so much as well. We can ignore the nasty negative jabs as that is typical of journalists who do not appreciate the real reasons why this remarkable group is so loved. A little research could help them and others understand. Well done.

that is wonderful to see two such distinguished scientists from Japan being so honoured. Well done.

Japan is one of the few countries in the world that has it right. There is no reason anyone from any other country should be allowed to illegally enter any nation, Japan, US, the UK, France, Italy, Greece anywhere. It is totally crazy to allow floods of illegals into countries that they will never be a part of culturaly and there is no reason any country owe safe haven to people because they may come from countries in political upheaval. Time for people to deal with their own problems at home and not try to force themselves on other nations. Good for Japan. Finally we are getting a few same leaders in the USA who understand this and I am sure we will get more.

China is far from clean on such issues of massive abuse of its own people the forced resettlement of millions upon millions is a huge cultural mistake in China and they continue to use their people like tools. They have no right to point fingers at the Ghosts of the past in an attempt to use guilt to dominate and abuse the Pacific region. It is laughable. And sad. If they worked at being a respectful neighbor they would find Japan is a responsible and mature modern nation of good will. It is China's sinister intent that blights their view and causes so much anxiety in the region and Japan has every right to defend its self and its allies in the region by arms if necessary. China is trying to project power with naval and air power now. Japan has the same rights and is not bound by the acts of the past just as no modern nation is.

It is their right to honour heir history and their ancestors just like it is the right of any other country or culture. Period. End of story. time to move on and tell the Chinese and the other critics to focus on their own problems and stop trying to make scapegoats out of ghosts of the past to use in present politics.

that such a criminal would be released after frying it once before is totally insane and another example of the ridiculous modern "liberal" attitude towards crime that has been created by lawyers and judges in love with the law and trails and courts and "civil liberties" .
this idiot should be executed and there wont be another copycat to imitate him.

Please let us all rest. This series is vastly over inflated in reputation. It has one cranky and selfish main character who constantly gets into trouble abuses others and then miracullously saves the day. over and over and over and over.
it was over after the first coeur. Now they are beating us to death with it
let him rest. please.

I am sorry to say that any serious student of history can say such sad afflictions of civilians happened in every war in history, and on a large scale. Japan is NOT alone or unique in this, Russia committed widespread such attacks on women when Berlin was captured, US forces did the same on the civili8an French population which resulted in a hatred of the US in many parts of France to this day, it is part of history. What IS unique is the attempt largely by China to shame Japan for political reasons and Korea to a lesser extent. Time to look forward, no one is trying to hid the past, some are just trying not to be forced to live in it.

Why in heavens name are you featuring news about a french inspired animated feature when Japan is home to the finest animation of modern age? Anime is far and beyond the best work done in animated form and forms a vast and varied literature of superb work in all genres. Please show more respect and coverage for the host nation of this serivce. Little Prince is old old old and very dated news.

Some interesting responses here and some cogent alternative analysis quoted. It is largely due to inter service rivalry on both sides of the Pacific War that it took so long and was so costly to no real end result other than the killing of vastly more Japanese civilians and soldiers than was ever necessary for the end result. The US losses were paltry in compoarison and in their nature of suffering tho it was a terrible war for everyone. Largely caused by Roosevelt's fears of competition from Japanese industrial and labor superiourity, his fears proved true in the long run and the US lost the war of production over the 1950s, 1960s and beyond. So what was the point of it all? a very cogent criticism was made by Clark Lee an in law correspondent and one of the founders of the UPS at the end of the war saying that largely the war consisted of old men, generals and admirals sending millions of young men out to die for their own egos and not for any real need. It seems that may have been true of both sides. Japan does indeed NOW need amphib forces for China will attack on every front and is already doing it. I am proud of them for being realists of the modern age and taking the correct steps to deal with it. Coast guard forces cannot project the power needed.

This show was from the start a ridiculous encouragement for false egotism and public display and a horror and an insult to any intelligent person in the USA. Sadly it started a whole flock of imitators and the so called judges were among the worst examples of this egotistic display in the whole scene.

The Battlefront titles were among the least in terms of quality of all of the many Star Wars based games. There are much much better quality SW titles with a lot more depth. The Battlefront games were a series of various Star War's themed setting with rather vague combat scenarios, really just fairly basic arcade limited story events strung together until they made up enough content to package as a "game" there was no real story or plot. Hardly promising as a subject for a remake. We will see EA is a fine company with many great titles published..so maybe we will be surprised.

OsanAmerica has said what needs to be said about this. Both China and Korea already accepted the appolgy years ago. Now the media including here are trying to find things to make stories about and China is trying to make trouble using any excuse it can.
And for pete's sake, this is ancient history now, just about everyone who had any say in the events of back then is very elderly or gone. Let their memory be respected by whoever wants to ...and let the present be based ON the present reality. Only China and press and news media ppl looking for a catchy story are beating on this long dead issue.
