Perhaps they should have asked for areas that I was talented in, rather than interested in. Many of these are fun choices, but not for me. It's rumoured that you have to be able to draw before you become a comic illustrator...
Meanwhile, 'writer' and 'translator' are 22 and 25 respectively.

I went to the gym yesterday. I love going since each machine has its own television and I don't have one. Anyway, I was surprised to see a hastily put-together NHK documentary on Abe Shinzou's resignation.

I also went today. It seems like he's got his doctors to give a press conference saying that he had entered hospital due to stress. Certainly opinion has focused on the timing, saying that if he was going to step down he should have done so after the recent election, not immediately after a policy speech. There was plenty of confusion yesterday and lots of Jimin members standing around going "I don't understand his feelings well".

My number one politician I want to resign is still Yanagisawa Hakuo. D: The man is made of FAIL.

And in more news (but less current), a link from yuki_scorpio:

Anita Roddick died

Hooray for British friends, at least. The newspapers don't cover that kind of stuff here...

Ironman movie trailer

Some of this looks really cool, some of this looks like utter trash. More to the point, I doubt these categories coincide with what the producers think I'm thinking. In other words -- very, very interesting take on Tony Stark. Rubbish Ironman outfit. Rubbish origin story. WTF?

More old news...

Indiana Jones 4

People are already complaining about the title. Does no one remember "...and the Temple of DOOM"? Huh?

I've been really surprised to read about the whole Abe thing. It's hard to say without actually living in Japan, but he didn't seem to be doing too bad a job from what I hear over here. It's his cabinet that was corrupt, not necessarily Abe himself, so it just seems quite strange to me that his popularity as a person would sink in the polls because of the actions of members of his party. Anyway! I find the whole LDP/Abe thing kind of interesting, and I kind of wish I was living over there at the moment so I could see the public opinion for myself.

...University has turned me into such a nerd. XD

Hahaha, excellent point. It's not Indiana Jones if it's not vaguely campy, IMO, so I kind of like the title. :D

If you want to see the opinion, I think the English language press in Japan cover it quite well.

One of the main things to bear in mind that he ran the party that always won in elections, so losing in the recent election was unbelievable. People believed that his quitting then was wrong, but now the same people are saying he shouldn't quit now.

Of course, by now I imagine a successor has been named, but I haven't been to the gym since my parents arrived.

There is an option to analyse your interest-based choices by skill levels but that has the potental to be truly depressing.

Hooray for my ability to hear it, if not the news itself! ^^

I think the title is fine, really. Better than the Star Wars prequels! :)

Marvel recently released an animated iron man movie (from a japanese studio) looks like anime, sounds like anime, denies it vehemently
it was quite good
but Dr Strange is better
I don't know if you can get them in Japan but they are really good (the avengers ones on the other hand - not quite so good)
Williamgenkischuldich on 18th September 2007 02:29 (UTC)
Ooh, they should totally make a Dr. Strange movie! Are they?
The Devil's handmaidenseraphim_grace on 18th September 2007 10:42 (UTC)
they did
it was the first one i saw
and had him as a neurosurgeon who messed up his hands and had to learn to use his magic
it was really good

it would cost a lot in sfx and dr strange isn't really famous enough to warrant it, so they just animated it

Well, although I'm not Japanese but still I feel the hardhip faced by people there..I dunno why>.>
Anyways, I kinda belive that Abe was a good man and his end shouldn't have been this tremendous.

Ja ne;)

Re: Hey^^
Hm, he really was a lot less popular than Koizumi and his defeat in the elections was massive. I can't understand why NOW though.
