    It's times like this when I wish I hadn't clicked on the photo.

    The whole GOP campaign is ugly, in all senses of the word.

    Other countries with monarchs have made loads of changes like allowing women to ascend the throne before their younger brothers. Asking Japan to make minor changes is like getting blood out of stone.

    Only in Japan would a family kick their daughter (or any female sibling) out because there is no place for them in the line of sucession.

    Seeing what country this is and how the imperial agency acts, I'd say she and her niece have had a lucky escape.

    Christ, talk about putting a positive spin on an app which is going to waste people's time, time which could have been put to better use like learning something useful or, dare I say it, working or finding a job.

    Posted in: If more people go out to look for Pokemon, it will increase consumer spending because these people will pay for transportation and meals. If local bodies organize regional Pokemon tours, it will help vitalize local economies. Its economic effects are far larger than other games, whose benefits are limited to those generated by relevant goods.

    Well, if the teachers are biased, then this only cancels out what kids learn by watching NHK news. LDP wants its cake and eat it.

    i needed a new watch for running to replace my old chunky Garmin watch. Got the new Vivoactive for the equivalent of about 11,000 yen during a Black Friday sale. Lasts for a week without a need for recharge, more if I don't use GPS during my runs. Linked to my phone so I can get email notifications (phone usually on silent mode). No need for Apple.

    It is called capitalism folks. There is always the option of going to North Korea to live.

    Jeez, so the only choices are to listen to Perfume or live in North Korea? You really do need to read a bit more and see the outside world a bit more. Here's your chance to earn another 5 yen.

    “If you analyse the world rankings, it looks a tough ask but Japanese athletes have an indefatigable spirit. What they lack in size they make up for with extraordinary mental toughness.”

    Yeah, damn right. No other country has athletes with indefatigable spirit or mental toughness. Other athletes just can't gaman or gambaru.

    And, as one Japanese politician (who luckily is so old he can't make many public appearances) said, foreigners act like beasts when playing judo.

    Since 1998, Seoul, I think Japan has only out-performed South Korea once (2004 Athens). I wonder whether South Korea are making similar projections or whether they'll just let their actions in Rio do the speaking.

    Missunderstood : I seriously doubt they'll medal, but everyone thought the same about the 4x100 team and look what happened.

    That's true, you never know what could happen. At last year's World Championships in Athletics, China won the silver, behind Usain Bolt's Jamaican team in the 4x100 event. They'd also broken the Asian record in the qualifiers. They beat out the likes of USA, UK, France, Germany and Canada.

    I'd love to see Perfume perform 'live'.

    Even I could put on a skirt, shuffle my feet, nod, and lipsync. Jesus, I'd be embarrassed if this is all my country can offer.

    sensei:

    Nothing compared to China's recent gymnastics team scandal.

    Recent? As in how recent? So you're saying the Chinese drilled a hole in the wall of the uring-testing centre and swapped vials of dirty urine with drug-free samples and that significant number of athletes were on drugs?

    Christ, you sound like one of those bitter Americans. Remember the Chinese teenager who won swimming in the London Olympics and certain people practically accused her of taking drugs? One or two days later an American teenager won by the same if not more margin, and yet there was silence. Sure, for some people it must be drugs. For others, it's down to pure hard work.

    Yeah, it's sad when you have to share the limelight and you can't monopolize the medal tables anymore. One typical American tactic is to list the medal table in order of total medals and not gold medals.

    domtioti:

    Maybe Russia will save face by announcing a boycott against the Olympics

    Yeah, and maybe they can boycott all other international competitions from now on. The rest of the world will move forward with or without them.

    Japan has a chance to sweep the medal field. Won't be much competition

    I'm having a hard time trying to figure which sports Japan might be at an advantage with the Russians out of the picture. I don't see Russia as the top judokas in the world. And they've lost their edge in the men's gymnastics (it was a disaster for them last time), and the Japanese women don't have a hope in hell, with or without the Russians.

    Also, had Kim Yeona been Japanese, the media here would have been all over the latest report on the drug cheating going on at Sochi. Since they won only one gold medal (without any competition from any Russians), they're not too bothered.

    Well done, M̶i̶c̶h̶e̶l̶l̶e̶ M̶e̶l̶a̶n̶i̶j̶a̶ Melania. That was a beautiful speech. I'm sure your husband, B̶a̶r̶a̶c̶k̶ ̶O̶b̶a̶m̶a̶ Donald Trump was very proud of you.

    MarkG:

    I do not think she knowingly plagerized (SIC) and she will be the First Lady later this year.

    I don't think so either. M̶e̶l̶a̶n̶i̶j̶a̶ Melania said she'd written her speech with as little help as possible. The Trumps are not known for blatant lies.

    However, I would think that with all the money she got from her husband, she could have hired a speech therapist.

    MsDelicious:

    To me, it appears that most if not all of the people commenting do not understand Japanese well enough to appreciate what the media is about. And, probably, 100% are clueless about reading Japanese. Study and learn.

    There's a saying here amongst the non-Japanese community. "When I first came to Japan, I didn't watch Japanese TV because I didn't understand the language. Now I don't watch Japanese TV because I do understand the language."

    The key to loving Japanese TV if you're a foreigner (or even if you're not): Turn the sound off. Turn the TV off. Works every time!

    I've gone one better. I sold my TV several years ago. And I've also put a sign on my door saying I don't have a TV or a computer which receives TV signals. Works a treat. Haven't had a visitor from NHK ever since. If I'm desperate for TV, I'll try my workplace or my partner's place.

    The first ever programme I watched when I first came here was a quiz show with two families competing to answer general knowledge questions. Litttle did I know then that the vast majority of quiz shows consisted of brainless tarentos answering mundane questions, sometimes with obviously scripted 'funny' answers, and going on to win prizes for themselves instead of giving to charities. It's no fun watching someone like Dewi-Fujin win prizes for sitting on her backside. That's why Attack 25 is one of the very very few programmes I do like to watch. Consists of ordinary folks using their brains.
