The article says it can be used for official contexts like banking, but a banking seal isn’t as high as a personal registered seal…

    Actually, it’s the opposite. Mass-produced ones aren’t unique enough for legal documents, which is why people have them handmade. They don’t do it themselves, largely because not everyone has the skill to carve kanji in mirror image, and also because despite this story, the requirements for a jitsuin are rather stringent (so it’s kind of like taking your own passport photo vs having it done professionally.)

  • “Itain” Moe-Hanko Make Big Impression:
    I love this story… In theory, being able to register any image for personal use would allow for such creativity. I’d always thought this kind of thing wouldn’t be allowed though. Wikipedia for instance says of the jitsuin (legal, formal seal): “The size, shape, material, decoration, and lettering style of jitsuin are closely regulated by law. For example, in Hiroshima, a jitsuin is expected to be roughly 1⁄2 to 1 inch (1.3 to 2.5 cm), usually square or (rarely) rectangular but never round, …

    Fair point. I got into J-pop in the 90s so I missed Onyanko Club. My main point is that these groups are juggernauts and it’s probably really uneconomical to try to compete with them (unless you already own all the others.)

  • Nogizaka46 Madoka BD CM “A Disgrace”:
    The fan outrage(?) is probably because it bears no resemblance to PMMM in the first place. It’s just a bunch of girls in gothic lolita fashion with a couple props – Kyuubey and a soul gem. It’s like if a clean-shaven guy in blue jeans, a white t-shirt and a ball cap showed up and went “hey, itsa mee – Mario!” Actually, it’s kind of what we see in most video game movies – no respect for the source material, because the director thinks they can do “better” with their own ideas… which no longer …

  • Nogizaka46 Madoka BD CM “A Disgrace”:
    Not only is it a ridiculous concept that takes a lot of resources, but the founders may have Yakuza ties, so it seems like an unwise choice – not that they’d come and kill you, but you may not even get a fair chance at taking on the AKB monster. It’s possible Morning Musume/Hello! Project is a kind of competition – but not really rivals, or on the same scale. Probably what inspired AKB48 though, or at least acts like it.

  • Top 10 Most Wanted Anime Movies:
    I agree. Great series, but it seems well suited to short stories.

  • Anime: Smoking “Uncool”:
    Even back in FLCL, Mamimi was always smoking a cigarette, but when she got close to Naota, he said “you stink like tobacco!” …though it’d also be as easy or easier to find characters like Spike Spiegel or Daisuke Jigen or Lupin III who smoked without effect.
