    This ad doesn't offend me. But it is racist. And I think we should be against all types of racism, no matter who it is directed at.

    Ignoring all the debate for a moment, I am glad that so many people said they were happy. That makes me happy too.

    “Fukubukuro” is an adorable word! I could just say it all day! These girls look like they're having fun. :)

    Well, small steps are better than none I suppose. I just wish this whole stupid mindset could be over with and we could have equality already.

    The significance of this is not that China doesn't want to take to Abe, but that they officially said so. In other words, it means foreign relations and deteriorating further.

    An apology is not made, not just by words, but by actions. Japan's leaders' current actions do not show apology nor respect for those who died to live in a peaceful world.

    I wouldn't care about them shoring up their military, if Abe hadn't already shown willingness to pick petty fights and disregard any sense of regret for Japan's past mistakes. He's acting like a war monger. There's no possible way Japan could be combat ready for many many years, and attempting to be will only drain Japan of money and increase debt.

    I actually enjoy learning Japanese in the same way other people enjoy taking a pottery class or listening to music. It's fun and useful. Because please do not believe for one second that learning Japanese will hurt you. It doesn't take long in Japan to figure out that having knowledge is always better than remaining ignorant. At the very least, you'll have to learn simple kanji, katakana, hiragana and basic spoken phrases.

    I feel like a lot of people forget that just because it's easy for YOU to not speak Japanese in Japan, you're being inconsiderate to everyone around you.

    I don't think "rambunctious" is the right word for this. 'Violent" is right. This shouldn't be an issue of gender, it should be an issue of violence. And it's not okay.

    To the people saying this is a bad thing, NO. The number of reported bullying cases going up is a VERY good thing, because for the first time ever people are actually reporting them. You can't fix what you ignore.. The bullying issue has always been bad, but at least now people are starting to realize it needs to be fixed.

    I think they're confusing 'Best' with 'Most Popular.'

    Very exciting! The Black Butler one is a bit odd, for many reasons (Please, for the love of god, take the shota vibes out.) but it could work out into an interesting dark drama.

    I'll be honest here: I have to think about which direction the sun sets, because it is not something I ever have to use in every day life. Not defending the wtf education we have, both in Japan and America, but just throwing that out there.

    @SimondB Jesus was not born in December. That's just when we celebrate it. It more likely he was born in September, so I don't think you have any right to be making fun of that woman.

    I quite like celebrating Christmas, though it is kinda interesting how secular Japanese Christmas is. The reason is obvious, but it's still a change. The way it's viewed as a romantic holiday is also a bit strange.

    And really, people in here sure are in a bad mood about Christmas!

    I have no doubt that some idiot is going to try to use this like a prostitution service, but the fact that they have older women and women with children suggests that that kind of thing wouldn't be tolerated. I can't help but still find many aspects of this sexist (why only women? why not a dude for guys to hang out with?), but can understand how a normal person with extreme social anxiety could find this very useful. I guess it all depends on how this is being carried out in practice.
