GREAT news from Japan. Tokyo Governor and enemy to anime otaku around the world, Shintaro Ishihara, has resigned as Governor of Tokyo. He has quit so he can make his own political party that he thinks will be able to beat the 2 major parties in Japan. As we all remember, he said a lot of stupid shit and did a lot of stupid shit, like making Bill 156, a bill that pretty much but a boot to the throat of the anime industry. With him gone, hopefully someone can kill that bill and the industry can be free again! Thoughts?

All he's really doing is shifting from the local level to the national level. This is even worse in my opinion, as he formed an alliance with the popular upstart Japan Restoration Party, and will likely earn a seat in the diet. Considering his attempt to buy the Senkaku islands for Tokyo is what lead to the thousands of Anti-Japan riots in China and as a result will cause the Japanese economy to stagnate until the middle of next year, I can't be happy so long as he's in power.
