I enjoyed watching his lip sync impersonation of Ayaya when he first came out. Definitely inspired Naomi Watanabe, the girl who does a lip sync impersonation of Beyonce among others. Despite the fact that he was a one hit wonder, he seemed to be starting to do very well. The way he died is very sad, and at the young age of 44. RIP Ken Maeda.

Good point marcelito. I'll bet there are a lot of people who forgot about that. Also agree with gogogo and Yubaru. I hope the people of Kyushu are treated well, but after seeing what the government still hasn't done for the people of Tohoku, the future doesn't look bright.

It's unfortunate, but it's hIs land, his tree, his choice. A few bad people have ruined it for everyone by taking advantage of his good nature in the first place.

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.
