I can't believe they would even think about making a sequel to this classic film.

When I first read this article there were no comments. It seemed appropriate. Unbelievable.

I echo other commentators, I hope Kenmin Show isn't cancelled. They just need to get a replacement for him. I never really liked Mina Monta, and I really don't think that "Mino Monta no Asa Zuba!" is a long-running show as the title of this article says. His previous show "Omoikkiri Terebi" had a much longer run.

Gotta agree with others here. While I want the Eagles to win, the call at first that allowed the run to score was an out.

I'm pulling for Rakuten to win it all too. Not only because I'm anti-Kyojin, but I really think they have the better TEAM. They all work together well.

I know that digital is more efficient and cleaner, but I like the old hand-drawn animation. I hoped that Sazae-san would hold out, and be the longest-running hand-drawn cartoon. Oh well...

GW is right, this isn't the yellow sand and 2.5 PM that everyone is talking about. It's sand from the farms around Tokyo.

I always teach my student that a bento is a boxed lunch, not a lunch box. It seems to work pretty well. These are amazing boxed lunches though!

This was a real shocker. He was so young. Very sad for his family, friends and worldwide fans. It seems that the operation for the cancer was a success, but he developed pneumonia. That happens a lot in Japan, I wonder why that is. RIP Kanzaburo Nakamura, thanks to you, there are many foreign fans of Kabuki now.

Congrats to Sanfrecce Hiroshima! It's been a long time coming. Also a special season for Vegalta Sendai. Both teams and their fans should be proud of their performance.

It's not going to be a prequel, as it is titled Star Wars 7 it will take place after Revenge of the Jedi. No need to worry about Jar Jar Binks. Kind of half-looking forward to and half-dreading what Disney, or any one for that matter, might do to Star Wars.

More than six actors played James Bond on the big screen. They are probably overlooking, or trying to forget, the James Bond spoof film "Casino Royale" from 1967. In that movie, not only is David Niven playing Bond, he decides to rename all of the agents to James Bond to confuse the enemy. As a result, David Niven, Terence Cooper, Woody Allen, Joanna Pettet, Daliah Lavi, Peter Sellers and Ursula Andress are all named James Bond in the movie. But I guess they overlooked it because it wasn't one of the "official" movies, just like "Never Say Never Again". I love them all, but had a lot of trouble digesting the tongue-in-cheek humor of some of the Roger Moore films. Sean Connery is still my favorite Bond.
