Finally – Ishihara Resigns


Tokyo’s 80-year-old dear leader Shintaro Ishihara has announced he intends to resign and form his own national party – though no sooner had he announced his ambitions than he began calling for the degenerate youth of Japan to be herded into military camps.

As a prefectural governor (styled “mayor”) of Tokyo, Ishihara’s antics were theoretically limited to the Tokyo region, but he claims he yearns for a return to the national politics in the Diet and so will be resigning and forming a new party with himself as leader.

As Ishihara has already recently started one irrelevant party of geriatrics, there is some confusion as to just why he needs yet another – although he is apparently sympathetic to Hashimoto’s “Restoration” party (formerly limited to Osaka, his party will be fielding candidates throughout Japan for the next general election) and its aims of wresting control of Japan from the central bureaucracy.

His replacement as governor will likely be the vice-governor – a man who hates young people and manga fans almost as much as Ishihara, and whom Ishihara has said he believes will continue to carry out his agenda.

No sooner had Ishihara announced his resignation than he began calling for young people he hates so much to be conscripted into national service:

“I want young people to feel more of a sense of solidarity. They should work for free in the SDF or police. I’ll be conferring with my associates as to whether we can bring this about.”

    "They should work for free in the SDF"... Give them gundams, homu-hummers and itacopters, you'll turn akiba in a military base in no time :P.
    oh, and give girls panzers. girls like panzers.

    Here's a better idea, why doesn't HE work for free?

    Amusing as the idea might be, he wouldn't be able to pass the physical exam.

    Forget the physical exam, the pscological exam would have him in a straght jacket faster than he can say "barberic".

    Add to that, what are his descendants doing? Not working for free in the SDF.

    Why you should work for free for police?

    So you can get free legal access to loli and under-age girls of coarse!

    So where can I sign in?

    I have a feeling he'd be OK with either one. "The Game" however isn't designed to build solidarity as you're required to eventually kill anyone you team up with or you both will die by exploding collar.

    And here's a potential scene from it:

    "Asuka was now wearing only brief white panties. She had signaled her desire by removing her shirt and skirt, and by leaning back on the couch. She closed her eyes, concentrating on nothing but Shintarou's tongue and lips. He gently teased her by licking the areas around her most sensitive erogenous zone. Then he slipped her panties down her legs and, within seconds, his tongue was inside her, moving rapidly."

    Is it still plagiarism if the names are changed?

    Fucking sexy. I bet Ishitara was beating his cock off when he wrote that. Dreaming of giant penises drooling hungrily through paper-doors at half-naked females.

    He was a good novel-writer but his shit law attacks on manga/anime is pure b.s.

    He fucked up the manga/anime industry and international trade really. It's going to take some time and groups to over-turn that Westernization shit, and hopefully relinquish the paranoia in the West about cartoon characters.

    Anime and Manga should be free to express itself. It is just lines, storylines and ink after-all on paper.

    Not happening unless you can prevent all the outdated relics in Tokyo from voting. And unless someone who isn't retarded like him campaign for the post.

    In other words, not going to happen in the next one or two decades.

    To be fair, the Japanese in general are the ones who have developed SHOUTING LOUDLY ON A STREET CORNER into the predominant method of political campaigning.

    Even if you dropped the Japanese part it would still sadly be true. Of course the Diet is the only first-world government office I know of where fist fights break out... not reassuring.

    That's awesome. Political debates should be resolved by the force and will of the strongest. Whenever someone disagrees on an issue, they ought to hold a nationally televised duel to the death!

    We had a boxing ring for 2 MP in Canada a while back: Liberal MP Justin Trudeau vs. Conservative Senator Patrick Brazeau.

    That was more a gentleman's fight than a brawl. We could use a few rounds of that for our political debates.

    I think all civil law suit such as patents/copyright etc should be held in an arena fight. Let's see they bring a reverse class action suit in which the lawyer from the record company fight try to fight against 100+ people for copyright violation all at once. ;)

    Is he really suggesting the enslavement of Japanese youth for the military? The last time Japan tried something like that, they got nuked, twice. Even then, I'm pretty sure the soldiers were paid.

    On the one hand, it's a great thing that such a detestable person has abdicated power. In some ways, it's almost on par with a Kim Jong Il level of politician stepping down, though Ishihara apparently only dreams of becoming so ruthless and dominating. If he were in any other part of the world, his resignation from such a post would likely mean the end of his tenure on the face of politics, given most elsewhere would be absolutely terrified of seeing him in office again after seeing his agenda. However, with a vice mayor (governor) just as bad, it feels more akin to trading Putin for Medvedev, i.e. just another of the same vein of his madness.

    As for the national Japanese political scene, I'm not sure how he'd fare, and that does raise some level of concern. Again, in neigh any other country, he'd find himself out the door, or just pushed to some powerless yet cushy desk job (which he may very well end up doing).

    I admit I'm not as well-versed in the Japanese political scene, and by the revolving door that the prime minister and other seats seem to be, I'm not sure how anyone does.

    Japan is facing a lot of issues: societal, economic, and certainly in defense just to name a few. Honestly, it seems they need a younger, charismatic leader that can actually get enthusiasm support behind him rather than this backroom dealing of geriatrics whose only concern seems to be their hate of the young.

    Dramatic change is needed there, and it certainly won't occur with people like Ishihara in power. One can only hope his resignation will be the beginning of a push that will drive Japan in a better direction in all aspects of life.

    There's a lot of challenges out there in the world, a lot of people hoping for better days to come. When people learn to stop being divisive and actually come together toward something better and realize that people are people, regardless of what they look like and where they come from, maybe then we'll start making great strides in that direction.

    What are you talking about? He's not feared in Japan, he was reelected again just recently.

    Change will be minimal since he's leaving his protege behind, and he's planning to make his own party. It'll very likely fail, but if it doesn't things will get even worse.
