“We presume that despite the meltdown, the fuel is still in the containment vessel,”
"presume" is not a very scientific word, is it?

looks VERY amateurish and the idea is rather bizarre but it could have worked if done professionally.

Aso and his mates are under the impression that "Cool Japan" [whatever they think it is] is really cool and the AKB producer has got enough money and connections to get a prime spot on the organizing committee - being this Japan, which we all know is run a bit like a mafia syndicate and an old boys club, we can get an idea of why the guy has got carte blanche to promote his stuff on the big world stage.
AKB is unfortunately part of modern, let's say current, Japanese [sub]culture and it's going to be hard to convince the old boys club otherwise, especially if it means lost revenue for them or their friends.
I'd rather see more talented people there, and if it really has to be idols methinks the five little ranger-like ones are much better [and sportier, too!] though Japanese pop [esp. the idol kind] is mainly trash, unfortunately (Y_Y)

since she hit her father with a baseball bat, it was probably safer to keep her away from the family; at that age she probably wanted to be on her own herself [I would]. let's hope she doesn't really get out at 20 - plus she should get at least some psychiatric help while behind bars, if anything to realize what the hell she did and repent.

when I was 18 the best thing my parents could do for me is to give me food/drink when needed and maybe help with a mock test but especially LEAVE ME ALONE.

"if you freeze to death, you’re stuck like that until morning." - sounds like the perfect place for suicide.

if you like anime methinks it's pretty much the only thing worth watching in Japan.
The 7 Deadly Sins, Your Lie in April and Parasyte are my current recommendations.
