I’m shocked they let Artefact post from jail. Must be an interesting change to be both making the news and reporting it.

I dunno. Maybe we’re thinking about this all wrong. Even with teachers like this Japan churns out students which are better educated, law-abiding, and at worst only end up killing themselves rather than blowing away dozens of innocent people in a school massacre. If you look at it as the ends justifying the means, it’s a net win no matter how you slice it.

Shocked to actually see Ben-to on there. It was an incredibly underrated series, most likely because of its ridiculous premise. I was pleasantly surprised in just about every way though and a 2nd season would kick ass. Personally, I would love more Seitokai Yakuindomo too.

This is _brilliant_. Now this is the way you basically choke someone to death by giving them exactly what in their horrible little minds they claim they wanted. I’m sure plenty of crazy AKB otaku thought something along the lines of ‘That whore should have her head shaved and apologize to all her fans on her knees’ or something even worse.

I just keep thinking and _these_ are the people everyone was so terrified and worried about in World War II? The implacable enemy who everyone was sure would fight to the bitter end and never surrender even if Japan itself was invaded causing a bloody war of attrition? It’s amazing how much things can change in just a few generations.
