maybe she just had a miscarriage, if one intentionally dumps a fetus in a toilet she'd be a total moron to call a plumber afterwards. accusing someone of murder without having enough details is not a very logical thing to do, Jim.
plus, overstaying your visa does not necessarily make you a murderer.

Japanese don't really do the "skinship" thing. it took a long time just to hold hands in public for couples - which is kind of cute, but a bit childish I guess. More "skinship" please!

because traveling from Japan is a total rip off and it's not Bubble Time anymore.
a 2-way ticket to any European town costs at least 30% more than if you took off from Europe exactly on the same plane. it's time to put an end to this middle-man mafia mentality.

it is "unique" because it is the first such international event held in Japan, that's what makes it different.

Otaku Summit signed the birth of the Inetrnational Otaku Event Association, that aims to bring together Japanese subculture-focused events all over the world, in order to exchange info, knowledge, guests, etc. crossing borders, culture, race, religion, everything. It's a literally historic watershed moment for Japanese subculture.

"presume" is not a very scientific word, is it?

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)
