Ikr. There is a song in one of the trailers that made me want to see the movie even more. Sometimes adding great music to a movie can make it infinitely better

Its counter productive. People try to get movies like this banned so that no one sees them, but that just makes more people want to go

That's part of the problem Japan has with it's neighboring countries that they tried to conquer. They denied the rape of thousands of women all over Asia in their "comfort houses", the brutal murders of thousands of prisoners of war, the deforestation of the Korean peninsula, etc. The Japanese military committed many, many war crimes. However, they have refused to apologize for any of it, and in some cases deny that any of it happened. It is one of the major reasons that Asian countries distrust Japan.

So, you can add this latest round of denials to all of the other denials they've made.

Not saying he can't, just that it's odd to post a GIF that's basically not moving, why not just a picture? (Rhetorical question by the way)

Relevant to OP in a way. Japan is trying to tell other countries what to put in their public school textbooks regarding Japan and WW II; including the U.S.

http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=972845

http://www.japantimes.co.jp/news/2015/01/16/national/history/japan-asks-u-s-publisher-mcgraw-hill-correct-textbook-references-regarding-comfort-women/#.VLh6dyvF-Tk

Excerpt from the article:


Japan has asked a major U.S. publisher to “correct” a school textbook that references World War II sex slaves, the Foreign Ministry said Thursday, as Tokyo’s bid to polish its history moves abroad.

Diplomats petitioned McGraw-Hill to change passages of a book used in American schools that refer to “comfort women,” Japan’s euphemism for females forced to work in military brothels.

“The Japanese government, through an overseas diplomatic office, in mid-December asked McGraw-Hill executives to make a correction in the content of their textbook titled ‘Traditions & Encounters: A Global Perspective on the Past,’” a ministry statement published by the Wall Street Journal said.

They did this “upon finding grave errors and descriptions that conflict with our nation’s stance on the issue of ‘comfort women.’”

The Japanese government under nationalist Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has embarked on a global campaign to right what it sees as the wrongs of global perceptions of its wartime violence.

Mainstream historians agree that around 200,000 females, mainly from the Korean Peninsula, but also from China, Taiwan and the Philippines, were forced to provide sex to Japanese soldiers in a formalized system of slavery.

Right-wingers in Japan dispute this, and insist the women were common prostitutes. They say neither the state nor the military was involved in any coercion.

McGraw-Hill Education confirmed it had been approached by “representatives from the Japanese government … asking the company to change the description of ‘comfort women’ in one of our publications,” according to the Journal.


Seriously, Japan? Love you guys, but you need to get your shit straight on all of this and sugar coating Japan during WW II and not owning up to what many Japanese people did during those times.

Also, they have some gall to say that these women who were sex slaves were 'common prostitutes'. They say "Oh, btw, they were prostitutes anyway'. No, they were ordinary citizens and they were forced to be sex slaves and they were raped.

Assassination, you say?

Well, time for my long overdue Japanese vacation that has nothing to due with current events. That suitcase that is being discreetly shipped to Japan with my name on it is also coincidental. No, I don't think it's shaped like a sniper rifle.....

Wow, Miyavi is in this film. Switching careers from singing? I just saw a few clips and his acting is phenomenal. It seems like the concerns of this film is very diverging. Some Japanese, more specifically Japanese Americans feel that this might portray a narrow narrative. For example, Pearl Harbor starring Ben Affleck. The Japanese internment camps was one of, if not the most significant consequences of the attack of Pearl harbor... does anyone recollect any mention of it in the film....or did they really just leave that out? If they did included it, it must have been a five second clip because it wasn't enough for me to remember and I honestly don't want to watch the whole thing again to find out.
