Miike is hit-or-miss for me, too. I really liked "The Great Yokai War", "Sukiyaki Western Django", "One Missed Call", and "Audition". Others I couldn't watch.

Is this the same case that was reported last month or is it a copy-cat suit?

The "plates" are pouches of some kind. You can see a zipper tab at the top left.

It's not that hard to get used to reading manga from right to left. One series I follow has a page inside the back cover saying, "Stop. You're going the wrong way." Simple. Helpful.

What crime d id she abet, the car theft? If she was being threatened with a knife and with being pushed off the roof I wouldn't think she was a willing participant.

I usually like his "Quentin Tarantino Presents" movies better than his own. Whether he makes good movies or not, he has good taste.

I agree with Kairo and for Thai horror, "Shutter" (the original, the American version took all the scarey parts out.) and "The Ghost of Mae Nak".
TokyoHipHop - I've not seen "The Scare" or "White Curse." Thanks. I look them up.

Unlike jury trials in countries such as the United States and Britain, where judges only determine the sentence, in Japan the sentencing is also done as a group.
This is not entirely true. In the U.S., or at least in Texas, the defendant chooses whether he wants the judge or jury to set the punishment if convicted. I went threw the jury selection process on Monday but was not selected for the trials.
