Good this is a timely order. Sadly China has not learned anything from the entire 20th century of trouble and trials..and continues to act like a 19th century warlord. Those outdated techniques will not work in todays world.

This is a rremarkably superficial article, not sure who wrote it but they sure dont understand much about anime or art or literature. It is silly to try to avoid our own time and our own tech whatever it is, it is part of our reality. Elfin Lied is a disgusting bizarre perversion of anime that shows graphic dismemberment, and other horrors when the viewers is not expecting it to shock and dismay and is nothing to do with what is good about anime in general. So it's artist and the series should not be viewed as having any impact at all other than something to avoid. Puling this marginal artist up for a comment and holding that somment up to be significant is shallow and meaningless.
there are a thousand and more fine anime series that are far far better and none of them worry about their tech or their reality being "outdated" they just get on being great entertainment and great visual literature.

Good for them it shows they have their priorities in the right place. Sport is sport, but life and family are what matter. Not worth risking over a hobby.

I am glad that Japan today used the correct name for these islands as they are part of Japan. That is the simple and unalterable and fundamental fact that China needs to swallow and get and move on from and with. They cannot go around naming things and claiming them as if they owned them on a whim and be considered a rational and modern country. :)

there is no reason to give in to modern obsesson with looks ...it is a ban and a sad thing to cater to. The point of uniforms is to establsh a common equalty among students and to focus them on their studies. not make a fashion statement. they can do that on their own time.

that is very nice to see. I have come to appreciate Studio G's work recently after feeling rather negative about it for years. the very odd and extreme elements in some of the productions put me off but some of the early work won my heart esp Kokuriko-zaka kara (From Up on Poppy Hill) ...there is a strong element of true Japanese spirit in the good works and beautiful art that is far far better than anything ever done by Pixar or Disney. superb work.

It borders on very bad taste to be featuring an article about a battle that cost thousands of Japanese lives military and civilian here. It would be fine for an American venue but hardly appropriate here.

This is meaingless and rather a joke coming from a man who had tried hard to create hatred between racial groups by pushing his agenda to promote his own chosen groups. We don't need lectures from hypocrites like that.

Virtual reality is a joke. please stop pushing it along with other media who just jump on clever ideas without thinking.
We have enough problems today understanding reality wthtout encouraging people to dive eve further into fantasy.
this is like driverless cars an example of yuppie brainless whims claiming to be useful.

they are NOT ;protests but planed mob tactics of bullying and should be outlawed by regulations against any candidate but you notice they are being used by the liberal followers in their attempt to force mob rule on the US...sad stuff to see and really silly but Trump will win and will save the country thank God.

Who cares? elevating a brutal expert in an absurd sport in which you win by hitting your opponent until he falls down and blacks out is silly beyond words. I am sorry he died but frankly dont care at all.

It is much scarier to think that Mrs Clinton who has no real experinece or qualifications other than being married to a former president to be one herself might win. It is terrifying to be honest. Trump can and will save the US from a near decade of liberal excessive spending and wild social propaganda for extreme causes. Thank goodness we have a chance to return to sanity if he wins.

It does not matter at all what race he was. The evil man who did this foul deed needs to pay the penalty for his crime. I am glad that a cry is out for the US to control their forces more. I am glad that we the US are helping protect Japan but we need to teach the service people and the non service eimployees to respect Japansee citizens. period. there is nothing to argue about or discuss on this. thank you JT for the facts of the case.

Sadly it takes two sides to agree on this..otherwise Japan would have been invaded and conquered long ago...and today and now are no different. When China decides to live peacefully with its neighbors and the insane radicals of Arab persuasion lay down their angry bombs then we can all embrace peace and bury our tools of defense. I am no more a supporter of violence than anyone..but sadly bullies love non violence and flourish in it. Liberal dreams and fantasies have brought our world to its knees once again in modern life..and once again will have to learn the tough truth about reality. Freedom is not free. there is a cost. Hopefully it is defense by a sane and intelligent decent culture....not offense.. But Defense IS needed. Thank God Abe and many wise modern Japanese understand this.

May Minagawa-san rest in peace. I only wish he has spent his talent on Japanesse drama instead of trying to promote western themes. farewell.
