Comment on Bandai Dumps US Anime – “Foreigners Are All Pirates!” by Shippoyasha:
“You’re crazy! Food in Japan is more expensive, yes. Especially if you buy them as INGREDIENTS. You can still have a nice meal out for more or less the same as in the US (maybe a little more for some things; definitely a lot cheaper than in Canada) despite somewhat different sizes in portions.”

People may think living in America/Canada is high maintenance, but it’s probably even more so in Japan.

Japan is such a great nation when it doesn’t have wackos who tries to push out a ‘clean’ nation filled with yes men/women who only live a certain way and of course, everything foreign and different and alternative is all evil and needs to be kicked out of Japan ASAP. As a nation, it should be a shameful thing to preach on like this. Especially for a conquering nation that was hell bent on taking over foreign lands for hundreds of years with countless failed attempts (and several successful ones …

I think it had enough drama to be impactful regardless. I still wonder why Tomoe Mami is chosen over Miki Sayaka considering Sayaka suffered so much throughout the season and was arguably the main hero of the story.
