With the temperatures going down, I imagine a heater was the cause of this accident. Unfortunately, as the temperatures continue to fall, like in previous years, there will be more fires. RIP to all involved in this terrible accident.

Always liked Kurt Russell, even when he was with Disney playing roles like Dexter Reilly. Looking forward to these two films, they sound interesting.

Completely agree with Brian Wheway. A sex offenders register and a more comprehensive DNA database of criminals would be very helpful. I hope that the victim and her family get proper counseling. I also hope that the rapist (Don't want to print his name again…) receives the highest possible sentence under current laws.

From what I saw on the news, they said that the original draft of the design was a capital T, and that it had to be changed because it was similar to too many other logos. That is probably when Sano dropped the left half of the T. I'm not defending Sano, but I really think it was just by chance.
The tote bag designs, on the other hand, were a fiasco...

I think what Adidas is saying is that women have a choice of buying the regular shirt or buying the shirt especially designed for women. Some may like the regular V-neck, so they buy the regular shirt, others may like the plunging v-neck. They're not forcing women to buy one or the other, it's the women's choice.

I hope they catch everyone involved, and they are dealt with appropriately. I'm not convinced that only 3 people were involved in the killing. If they were watching, they were involved.

Matsu Takako did the J voice for Elsa and Sayaka Kanda did the J voice for Anna. Matsu Takako sang Let It Go in Japanese (Ari no ma ma) in the movie, and it's a much better version than May J's IMHO.

Not only dogs and cats, but the pet industry in general is bad. I remember the squirrels stuffed into cages at the pet shop when I first came to Japan. They could barely move around. Very sad. And the chicks and rabbits at the festivals. Madness.

Unbelievable. I also wonder if they purposely select a spokeswoman for these things, in order to "soften" the news. I hope this series of accidents will get a lot of international press, but I'm afraid it will be buried. RIP to the three who have recently died unnecessarily, and to the others who have had a similar fate in the past. Sad.

Very sad. He was one of the very few true movie stars in Japan, and one of the most modest. His work will live on forever. RIP Ken-san.

If they find that she knowingly broke the law, then she has to be prosecuted. If it was the people running her affairs, then she should probably step down, and the people responsible should be prosecuted. Then I say they should put every single member of the Diet, including the accusers, under a microscope. If wrongdoing is found, more prosecutions. Of course the latter will never happen...

Governments should not be involved in labeling foods as healthy or good for high blood pressure (as some teas are in Japan). Bad idea. Could be held libel.

I'm a little surprised at these results, with all the news about how bad it is for senior citizens in Japan. Years ago I would agree, but not now.
