I love this quote in the article: "Some Internet users in Japan have already commented on the steep price, saying that it would be more economical to buy the individual Blu-rays for just the movies that you really like."
Yes, of course it would be cheaper to buy only the movies that you really like. Why would you buy this set if you are not interested in it? There are plenty of fans who would love this set at this price. Fans may have already purchased the blu rays of their favorite movies, but they might be enticed by the extra content.

By the way, they are not all girls, hence the name Tempura KIDZ. His stage name is Pi-chan...

I just hope that Obokata isn't being thrown under the bus. If the science is found to be sound, then rewrite the report with assistance.

I think there is even a company in Mexico that injects gps trackers in children and pets due to the many kidnappings. (Usually rich families…) I hope she is found safe, there are a lot of evil people out there.

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...
