This entire issue is ridicuous. During WWII the Allies and specifically the US but other nations too sponsored brothels and supervised them with their miltary police..which is identical to what people are attacking Japan for. It was not a nice thing and a sad part of history but has been around as long as war in history. Time to stop making the Japan of today the scapegoat of other ambitions.

that is great news and wonderful to see the advances being made by Japanese scientists. Well done!

Gee what a surprise another arab attacker filled with so much hate that he shoots innocent strangers in the cause of his cult's believfs and the demcrats in power want to let thousands more potential killers into the US with no screening just to try to force a foreign religion on the rest of the country.
i expect we will see more of this until sanity returns to not only the US but Europe as well and the free pass for any and all people from the Middle east is shut down.

Clinton is a joke she should never have been elected for anything she had no eperinece at all and her record in the State Department was deplorable. She and her husband have been known to be shady forever. Trump is an honest and strong minded man who we desperatly need and most of American realizes this he will win by a landslide and we can start restoring the US to a country of honour and decency. the past eight years have been horrible and filled with liberal trash at every level of life.

Yet another attack by arab inspired terrorism and the officials being afraid of the pro muslim powers in charge of the US right now wont say it is one. sigh getting tired of this whitewash.

It is so obviously an arab terrorist attack but the liberal dominated media is falling all over itself trying to say it is NOT teerrorism and that no arabs were involved ya sure.

The climate scam is yet another example of liberal politics gone wild. They pretend that the nations of the world who have worked hard and created a lot for their people somehow owe the rest of the world for that effort. And the biased and baseless claims of Global warming are yet another example of fantasy parading as fact..there is no way we can know if what we are going thru is not a natural cycle that we just don't have the data to detect. Surely when volcanoes and other natural phenomenon have been present in the past they created similar effects and thee had nothign at all to do with people.
so it is a total joke to follow the failed liberal fantasy into insanity over the weather or the planet or anything.

I have no idea why they would choose a foreign actor when there are a ton of great Japanese actors available. sad story.

Good this is a timely order. Sadly China has not learned anything from the entire 20th century of trouble and trials..and continues to act like a 19th century warlord. Those outdated techniques will not work in todays world.

This is a rremarkably superficial article, not sure who wrote it but they sure dont understand much about anime or art or literature. It is silly to try to avoid our own time and our own tech whatever it is, it is part of our reality. Elfin Lied is a disgusting bizarre perversion of anime that shows graphic dismemberment, and other horrors when the viewers is not expecting it to shock and dismay and is nothing to do with what is good about anime in general. So it's artist and the series should not be viewed as having any impact at all other than something to avoid. Puling this marginal artist up for a comment and holding that somment up to be significant is shallow and meaningless.
there are a thousand and more fine anime series that are far far better and none of them worry about their tech or their reality being "outdated" they just get on being great entertainment and great visual literature.

Good for them it shows they have their priorities in the right place. Sport is sport, but life and family are what matter. Not worth risking over a hobby.

I am glad that Japan today used the correct name for these islands as they are part of Japan. That is the simple and unalterable and fundamental fact that China needs to swallow and get and move on from and with. They cannot go around naming things and claiming them as if they owned them on a whim and be considered a rational and modern country. :)

there is no reason to give in to modern obsesson with looks ...it is a ban and a sad thing to cater to. The point of uniforms is to establsh a common equalty among students and to focus them on their studies. not make a fashion statement. they can do that on their own time.

that is very nice to see. I have come to appreciate Studio G's work recently after feeling rather negative about it for years. the very odd and extreme elements in some of the productions put me off but some of the early work won my heart esp Kokuriko-zaka kara (From Up on Poppy Hill) ...there is a strong element of true Japanese spirit in the good works and beautiful art that is far far better than anything ever done by Pixar or Disney. superb work.

It borders on very bad taste to be featuring an article about a battle that cost thousands of Japanese lives military and civilian here. It would be fine for an American venue but hardly appropriate here.

This is meaingless and rather a joke coming from a man who had tried hard to create hatred between racial groups by pushing his agenda to promote his own chosen groups. We don't need lectures from hypocrites like that.

Virtual reality is a joke. please stop pushing it along with other media who just jump on clever ideas without thinking.
We have enough problems today understanding reality wthtout encouraging people to dive eve further into fantasy.
this is like driverless cars an example of yuppie brainless whims claiming to be useful.

they are NOT ;protests but planed mob tactics of bullying and should be outlawed by regulations against any candidate but you notice they are being used by the liberal followers in their attempt to force mob rule on the US...sad stuff to see and really silly but Trump will win and will save the country thank God.
