Remember guys, he only represents Tokyo. I get the feeling the rest of the country ain’t too keen on him.

  • Ishihara Bans Hanami – “You Must Not Have Fun!”:
    I remember right after 9/11, Americans were told to go on with their lives and to try and live as normally as possible. I know terrorist attack ≠ natural disaster, but is there really this great a cultural difference about how to deal with national tragedy?

  • One Piece Sails Into Guinness Book of World Records:
    Are there any long-running manga that HAVEN’T jumped the shark, though? Even my beloved Hokuto no Ken was forced to go on longer than it should have because the Shonen Jump editors forced the mangaka to. I’m not even a One Piece fan, but this just seems to be be the natural effect when creating a cash cow. It’s never the mangaka’s fault. He/she is basically just a slave.

    Right? Swap him out with Kuririn.

  • Lenfried Extreme: “She Bares All At Last!”:
    It goes back further than that. But more or less you are correct. It was when they were first opened up to the West in the late 19th, early 20th century. American and European visitors complained about having to see certain kinds of sculptures and paintings around; it was just sooo offensive to their sensibilities. So that law was made by the Japanese due to foreign pressure.

  • Top 25 Most Hotly Anticipated Manga Endings:
    I think that in a lot of these cases on this list, the voters are afraid that the author will die before the manga properly ends. George RR Martin syndrome, if you will.

  • Japanese Government “Will Stamp Out Anime Streaming”:
    That’s actually true. Foreign pandering has been happening ever since Pokemon hit it big. Remember when they wrote out that Takeshi/Brock kid from Pokemon because some American soccer moms didn’t like his eyes?
