    The only thing there's no disputing is that the islands are Russian.

    You definitely need to do your homework, dear smithagainstjapan.

    Just extend the usage of Furigana (as long as you can't abolish Kanji, but that day will come) and everyone will be happy. Limiting Sonkeigo might be an idea as well, but it's actually much easier than most people believe it to be.

    Just destroy everything this guy has made, seriously. His style of "architecture" is like cancer in my opinion. Historically important? Yeah, maybe. But nothing to be proud of. As a Swiss, I'm happy they're changing the paper money now so that I don't have to see his face every day (he's on the 10 Franc note)...

    So yeah, all smokers are idiots and children. People who claim things like this surely don't have many friends. I prefer being a smoker over being anti-social like for example Cleo.

    At least it's her hair cut off, not another panties

    Well I don't know, but if I was a girl I'd rather prefer losing my underwear, wouldn't you? At least you can buy new panties everywhere whereas growing your hair will take months, if not years, so she'll be remembered of this accident for a long time. It's a much worse humiliation in my opinion. I sincerely hope they catch this weirdo soon.

    Besides, if he was an "unemployed man in his 30s" or not, what difference does this make? I really can't stand these prejudices. Some guys here really seem to believe that every unemployed man is a potential killer/rapist/child molester. Wait until you lose your job and get forced to live with your parents again (another prejudice -- this happens everywhere and even in the best families) and then judge again. May be that many criminals use to be "unemployed men in their 30s", but given the large number of them it's still a minority.

    Deleting Line, now.

    Oh, why don't you just cut off your own hands, because other people have killed each other with their hands?

    Terrible. Anyone knows where it happened? Nishinari maybe? Can't find any Japanese language news about it.

    ben4short already said it, get rid of the mosaics. That's so silly. But one day or another it will happen.

    Besides, respect to all people who live their dream, don't mind silly taboos and enjoy their sex life, regardless of age. Good article!

    Just for your information: There are also women who smoke. Some damn pretty ones. This is really cheap and somehow even sexist.

    Now let the smoker bashing start once again, I'll have a cigarette in the meantime.

    Freedom of speech, alright -- but threatening to kill people of different ethnicity in public is something different. I've experienced it as well, even while being with my Korean girlfriend at that time, and I guess everyone who has been to Japan recently got to know these people (and their flyers and posters). It's just utterly shocking and disturbing. Maybe Americans don't see this, but laws against hate speech and discrimination work very well in Europe and there are few people complaining about the limits of freedom.

    That being said, I'd also do something about this particular NK school / parallel society. Raising children in this vein is disgusting since "North Korea" is nothing but a criminal organization occupying the North of the Korean peninsula, using torture, suppression, starvation and mass executions as means of maintaining power. This is, of course, not the fault of the students, but I wonder why this is still legal in Japan.

    So happy to hear this! I was waiting for a new Godzilla film for years, and now it's finally getting closer. :) I was worried the American productions (which I will never accept -- besides, the 2014 film is one of the worst films I've ever seen in my life) could further delay this, but luckily it doesn't seem so. Thumbs up, Toho. Without Godzilla, Japan wouldn't exist in my world.

    I haven't seen "cheap trashy junk" from Korea in years, Abdella. Do some research before you spread your narrow-minded prejudices. Even the Chinese have some decent brands by now, although very few. And the Japanese started by imitating foreign products as well before they became even better -- same goes for Germany.

    I absolutely support it in every way, especially for schools. But it must not be selective. You can't just ban burkas and allow crucifixes and other stuff, even if a country has a Christian tradition or whatsoever. In my very opinion, religion is an anachronism, and since it's not possible to get rid of it at all (because it only comes back stronger than ever), the impact on our society has to be minimized at least.

    Posted in: In some countries, there is a ban on adults and children wearing religious clothing and symbols such as burqas, veils, head scarves, skullcaps, turbans and crucifixes in public places like schools, recreational facilities and so on. What’s your stance?

    "This is way more disgusting that (sic) any food scandal."

    Unless it were your child that ate some of tainted food and became ill, right? Since there is no evidence in this case of "scapegoating" then I cheer the detainment of these 5 people. But I know, bashing China is all the rage and the hip thing right now. I suggest you also take a nice long look of the "justice" system here in good ole Nippon before tossing some stones at other countries.

    Wait a sec. You really salute to China for detaining 5 people? Do you even have a concept what this probably means in a country like that? I really don't want to imagine. Nobody deserves the kind of "detainment" China is offering, and I doubt they even did or will do further investigations, since getting rid of certain scapegoats is so much easier. This is way more disgusting that any food scandal.

    Japan somehow is the only country I know where Makudo workers aren‘t animals without any knowledge of human behaviour, but normal persons. Thumbs up for that, but that‘s a feature of basically every store or chain in Japan anyway.

    Yeah, I‘d also miss the 100 Yen burgers. But a Japan without McDonald‘s? Doesn‘t sound that bad. Anyway, the worst thing they ever did was introducing the breakfast menu all over the world. It‘s completely useless and mostly disgusting. Nobody likes it. Get rid of it, so clubgoers can eat normal hamburgers again at 5 AM after partying too hard.

    Nice! And based on one of the best Godzilla designs of all time. I love "Godzilla vs. Biollante". Let's hope it'll make someone with too much money very happy.

    By the way, it's "Abeno Harukas", not "Abe no Harukasu", speaking of Japan's tallest building. Abeno is a ward in the southern part Osaka city and not a name. ;) I'd really like to see it being destroyed in a new Japanese Godzilla film.

    Of course this is outrageous and just wrong -- but if it gets enough publicity, maybe people finally start rethinking their riduculous Meiji-era "obscenity laws", which is fine to me. This has to be changed. So don't just rage about this. In the end it's always cases like this that ignite real change. So I strongly support this artist as well.

    I was also wondering why they obviously changed the title of this production (I didn't know the film anyway since I'm not interested in American cinema), but if that's the title of the original work, fair enough! Glad I got this, and since the plot sounds interesting and since there are few Hollywood films based on Japanese fiction (that are not remakes of already existing adaptions), I could as well give it a try.
