    I am happy that she is happy but I will still miss her, she is my favorite actress. She was in the first Japanese Drama I ever watched. Atashincho no Danshi in 2009 which is the first movie she met her future husband in but didn't talk with him at all at that time.

    Good Luck and may all your dreams come true!

    Its quite commonly known that almost all of her pieces go on "clearance" sooner or later. Look up her line in pictures, not online sales pic's but where news shows put the pictures up or shoppers put them up and most of them have either the words "sale" or "clearance" on them. Nordstroms said they informed Ivanka in 2016 that if her line didn't pick up sales from 26% they would have to discontinue it. It didn't rise, they got rid of it. She knew it was going to happen.

    Check her clothes out, go into the stores and look at them. They are plain and not stylish at all.

    Excuse me, he can work to get a better price for a foreign dignitary but he can't hire one doctor to work for US Veterans, he hasn't done one good thing for Veterans, but he did do a hiring freeze on government workers so that Veteran hospitals can't employ medical or therapy personal and Vets are dying at the rate of 22 a day.

    Worst president ever...

    So he took a vacation last weekend, taking this one too...he doesn't get it does he? The President doesn't get weekends off...but then again Bannon is there to sit in the Big Boy seat.

    "By contrast, under the departing Obama, the economy has added private sector jobs in 80 consecutive months and the unemployment rate stands at 4.7 percent." 4.7 percent is quite skewed, debatable not counting people who stopped looking for work and of little consolation to 95 million Americans out of the labor force in a country of 318 million. In raw math terms to us simple laymen, the number is more like 25 to 30% unemployed."

    What his team counted were 16 to 25 year old -- high school & college students not looking for jobs--, housewives and moms, early retired, disabled who shouldn't have been counted because they weren't looking to be in the job market at all. If people don't want a job you can't count them as unemployed, unless you are a Republican, they don't count anyone who isn't adding to the coffers, you can't make them rich so you don't count.

    And remember America didn't vote for Trump, they voted for the other guy, 3 million at last count. Trump got that ugly angry part of America that doesn't want to lose their "white privilege", and before anyone accuses me, I'm white, and I know what I'm talking about. Upper middle class Christians and that 1% have made it clear that they want their privilege back. You know that part that liked going to the rallies to get all riled up, the ones that didn't even take the time to go to DC and celebrate with their new fascist dictator.

    That's okay, make fun of the "small" protest in Tokyo...just pretend that the groups around the world totalling 2.5 million don't exist, but then that's what Trumps supporters have been doing since the beginning...pretend that he doesn't lie, pretend that he doesn't destroy other business so that he doesn't have to pay them, pretend to pay taxes, pretend to have a "University", pretend that he had a million people at his inauguration when in-fact there was only 250,000, pretend that the Media lies so that when the Media prints the truth you uneducated believe his lies, pretend he doesn't demean woman, pretend he isn't a narcissist, pretend that he's a man of the people when in fact since the 1980's he's never done one, not one thing for anyone else but himself, pretend that he didn't cheat with his charity foundation to the point that New York State Attorney General closed it down for being fraudulent, pretend that he didn't plagiarize his inauguration speech from 3 different Hollywood Movies, Independence Day, Avatar, and The Dark Knight Rises...PRETEND...PRETEND...PRETEND...so now you want us educated American's to pretend along with you...nope we're too smart for that. Most of us don't live in Trumpland, we live in America.

    Idiots tried to sell his wife's jewelry from the White House Website...sheesh...he doesn't even know the rules of the job. But then again he didn't know what the Nuclear Triad was. Just goes to show that a hell of a lot of Americans are idiots sad to say.

    That's okay Japan, an American Senator John Lewis (D-Georgia) who walked with Martin Luther King Jr and was beaten by Georgia patrolman during the 1960's and the Civil Rights Movement, he is considered a Icon. He is a man consider to a "world changer". And he has been a Senator since 1986 said almost the exact same thing today.

    Senator John Lewis: "I believe in forgiveness. I believe in trying to work with people. It will be hard. It's going to be very difficult. I don't see this president-elect as a legitimate president,” Lewis said in an interview with MSNBC on Friday.

    “I think the Russians participated in helping this man get elected. And they helped destroy the candidacy of Hillary Clinton,” he added."

    Trump of course came back on Twitter and said the man is "all talk, and no action".

    Like I said, John Lewis helped change the world for Human Rights...along comes Trump and his gang trying to remove human rights and Trump called him a name...big bad Trump.

    Don't worry Japan, millions of American feel the think skinned bully is "hysterical" too.

    I don't think I can "trust" a man who is hiding in a foreign embassy because of a rape charge. If he was innocent he'd be trying to prove his innocence but no, he's just hiding out till the Swedish courts run out of time, which has already happened on the molestation charge.

    Lets see 17 intelligence agencies, some foreign agencies or a lying sexual molester...no not Trump, Assange, which one should we believe?

    Or do I believe a man who read Mein Kampf and thought Hitler was a very smart man, it was his favorite book. Ivana once said he kept a copy next to his bed. A man who believes that Putin a man who stole his fortune and doesn't allow his countrymen to have basic human rights? Ask yourself why Trump needed to have his supporters believe that MSM was all liars, so that when they reported the stupid, idiot things he does the Trumpetts all start shouting "fake news".

    Now who should I believe...

    Never thought I'd see America in such a pathetic state in my lifetime.

    When a private citizen who could possibly be the greatest actress in the world gives her opinion at an Awards ceremony maybe Trumplett should stop and think about it before running to twitter, but no, he calls her "over-rated" and a "flunky" then says "for the 100th time" I didn't...(add any of a thousand answers) you know he's a loser and an idiot.

    He's the President-elect, there are going to be a lot of people giving opinions about his Presidency (the Republicans did it to Obama for 8 years) if he has to take time out of his job to defend himself to each one by calling names he's not going have much time to be President...oh wait, that's what he has Pence for...

    commanteer - the last thing you want a leader of any country to be is thin skinned, and if you find it refreshing then your an idiot too...

    1 I think it's bad "business" to tell foreign business where they have to build their product. #2 and the most important, he shouldn't be allowed to punish others for making their products in other countries like Mexico and China since he's clothing line is made outside of the US, then he should be taxed for bringing in clothing made in foreign countries. (His excuse is that that they can't make his clothing here in the US...WTF?

    I'm a huge Johnny's fan, although SMAP has never been on my list, I do love Nakia and Kimura, the other three don't really register to me, I always found them boring. But if we all liked the same things this would be a very boring world and my heart does go out to the SMAP fans...

    BUT...

    $39 million yen for an ad that really doesn't change anything...I think you should have actually donated it to a children's charity or another charity of some sort (there are still a lot of displaced families in Japan after the Tsunami) in SMAP's name, then you would have made a big difference in Japan and the world, just not spend it all on a big huge note of love.

    Why aren't all you Trump supporters questioning the fact that he has 25 companies in other countries, his clothes are ALL made in other countries...Trump shirts are made in Bangladesh, Trump suits in Mexico, Trump Vodka in the Netherlands, Trump crystal barware in Slovenia and his cufflinks and ties in China. His "Make America Great Again" hats were made in China til people questioned it and they were quickly made in Los Angeles (in a sweat shop).

    He says his clothes are made outside US because "they don't make fine brands in US anymore, can't make them here"...betcha these brands were surprised at that statement.

    Remember when one of the papers said that "Trump could shoot someone on the street and his supporters still would follow him"...it's true and it's freakin scary that people don't need fact anymore, they will believe what ever they're told if they think they are going to get rich. But Donald Trump has never done anything for anyone but himself and the US will find that out in the coming years. He doesn't even want to be President, he just wants to go to rallies and be told how great he is...NPD all over the place. Better keep telling him he's great or else you are going to see the biggest temper tantrum ever.

    2 problems with him "saving jobs" at Carrier, #1, Carrier made BILLIONS this year, they don't need to move anywhere to cut cost, what they needed to do was take back the bonus's they gave their higher employees (one of which was 1 Billion alone). #2, he saved 1,000 jobs, but what about the other 1500 jobs that are still moving to Mexico? He literally paid Carrier to move 1,500 jobs to Mexico a total of 7 Million Dollars. And another 35% tax cuts on top of the ones they already received and 1.5 billion in Government research money they already received from Mike Pence as Governor.

    So all the American companies will be lining up 'to move out of the US' so they can get their payoffs too...man didn't save anything, he paid them off.

    Okay, all this bitching about what a waste they are just because you don't like their music. Just image the rest of us who do like some of them having to ONLY listen to what YOU like, wouldn't make for happy times. Then switch it and think about how you would feel if society only listened to what WE like.

    I dislike all the AKB48's and sister groups, I dislike Ayumi Hamasaki? Namie Amuro and X Japan but I don't complain to everyone I post to about them.

    We all lot a diverse set of music, just don't listen to it and move on. Get over it.

    Some one said if you want roles for older woman write them...do you know who many roles WERE written for older woman and Hollywood producers and studio heads changes the age to someone much younger. Take for instance Joy, the movie was about a woman inventor who was in her forties...who did they hire to play Joy...Jennifer Lawrence, age 26.

    See how they do it...so go ahead and write those "Older Lady Roles"...the powers that be will just hire younger actresses.

    Please tell me this isn't true, a friend just told me that if Yuta Takahata apologizes to the woman/victim in court he will probably be left go with no prison time? I find this hard to believe buy friend who was born in Japan and left at age 30 says it happens all the time.

    What I find funny is that France now decides they are going to fight the terrorist, isn't this the country that used to invite terrorist on the run to come and live in France...

    And the way to fight terrorism is to make women who practice a religion that states they hide their bodies, so they even invent a swimwear that they can go to the beach and enjoy the water on a hot day...

    and this is what France is doing to fight terrorism...

    It's like locking the car but leaving all the windows open, you're not solving the problem at all...
