These are just run-of-the-mill Made in China print outs.

The world is hanging on a balance: Stephen Hawking, Michio Kaku, Aung San Suu Kyi et al. on one end, and Seth MacFarlane and Adam Sandler on the other.

Man, people mock Microsoft like they mock the Toyotas, Opels and Chevys...
They might not look as good as Ferraris and Aston Martins, but they keep the world turning.

Too bad, they should've done this years ago.
Back in the late 90s to early 2000s, Japanese expansion would have gained a strong foothold here.
Then came that aggressive Korean wave.

If JAPAN NEXT, what First?
Seriously, the logo is dynamic. However, why focus on just animation, fashion and food? Why not compete head-on with Korean consumer media (K-Pop, TV dramas, films), when Japan obviously can offer better material?

I'd love to see the Emperor and the Royal Family 'rule' again.
Or at least, Junichiro Koizumi Part 2.
They can't just abdicate when things get rough, so they'll do everything in their power to get their country back on track unlike these gutless politicians who merely abandon ship.
Desperate times call for superior leaders.

OIKAWA: This girl is pretty good. Made me cry watching "1 Liter of Tears"... but maybe it's also the story.

The main point of Harry Potter is that Rowling already put closure on the story, and perhaps the only way it could continue is if Voldemort returns. Otherwise, I think Harry should enjoy the rest of his remaining teenage years; he deserved it.

I think 7 books is already overkill, but perhaps readers would welcome an older Harry Potter sometime in the future (and when the young readers have already grown up).
