i pray for them all in Japan. i say we take a plane or jet and fly on over there and help them ourselves. we can not trust these organized donors "some off them" this is just an excuse to get money.


I appreciate your sympathy for your kind thoughts.
However, we'll probably be a burden if we head there, and also flights to Japan are very restricted, at the moment.
We just have to believe in the organisation we've all donated to.
Avoid being scammed by:
Donating to official organisations such as Red Cross.
Checking the URL.
Not clicking on links and avoid being re-directed to other sites.

It's really chaotic out there in Japan and hopefully they'll get all the support they need.


yes that is all true. just kinda wish that i did have a jet. xD a better way to know that my help is actually being used. instead of those fake imposters just trying to get money!

Yea, the damage in the anime was quite extensive.
AND that was only on a earthquake strength of 8.0.
The one Japan was hit with was 9.0 on the Richter scale.
As you can imagine, the damage is much much worse than it is.
The anime also conveys the damage to family life as well.

i was shocked when i went to CNN.com and watched stuff about the earthquake and tsunami that hit japan.. i sympathize with my fellow kinsmen who experienced such a traumatic event and i also appreciate the efforts and response the government and the rest of the world are showing to aid.

I read two lists of J-Pop and J-Rock artists who have confirmed to be safe, which was such a relief for me
my prayers go to Japan

I heard a girl say today "Omg I hope Naruto can continue" I wanted to pop her in the face, NEVER has my self-restraint been so tested. Oh not thousands of people dead and may be dead but no, Naruto is more important? Fucking retard. What I did do was walk past her and stared her in the eyes as I did with the most evil look ever. If I stayed I probably would have either shouted at her infront of the whole shop or just hurt her.

Also, I wish people would stop spreading crappy rumours for example "All the Nintendo employees are dead" shut the fuck up, it was announced they are all alive. People are also making jokes already and its sick.

Rage at inconsiderate wankers aside. My heart is in Japan right now and I'm glad my cousins and other relatives living out there are safe.

It's a good thing I haven't seen any of this outside of the internet, because you can bet your ass I would chew them out for it.

<3 Japan. The death toll rises. Some estimates are saying as many as 10,000 could die. I really hope that's wrong.

I seriously wanted to kill her. If it was on the internet I would have bashed the shit out of her, if I wasn't so disciplined I'd have done the same in person.

I understand your anger at that girl's callous and inconsiderate statement. Sure you are right that her concern should have been on the people involved, not her favorite anime. But tell me what good would have come from you yelling at some random teenage girl? What lesson are you teaching her at that point?

Trust me, I get it. It makes my blood boil when I hear things like that too. But you can not just scream at someone and expect them to understand you, even if you are making a great point. It does not work that way. Point out to her that the death toll is rising, and her concern should be on the people. Keep your voice even, and do you best to keep the venom out of it. Otherwise she, like most people, will just stop listening, which would defeat the original purpose.

I apologize if I sound preachy, that is not my intent. But if you were to say something to this young lady, then it should at least be something she would take to heart.

I agree, people like that are annoying and selfish. However, it's not like they wanted the earthquake to hit Japan either.
Some jokes are just insensitive and, yea, it hits a nerve to frustrated people who have been more affected by the disaster.

On another topic, I'm assisting in my school's donation to Red Cross by a 'Jelly Bean Draw'.
Anyone who can guess the amount of jelly beans in a very BIG jar will win it.
A first guess will cost 1$ and each following guess is 0.50$.
Over 350$ has been raised so far and each day the money increases.
By the end of the fortnight the event ends.
