Who cares, "BlueOni". Akihito is nothing more than a figurehead. I suggest you make a thread about Abe, bleeding heart, if that's who you're fixated on...


The 447 people who have viewed this thread so far presumably are at least marginally interested in the subject even if most of them don't care about it particularly strongly or don't feel they know enough to comment, which is why it has a relatively low amount of replies. As for why I haven't posted a thread specifically on Shinzo Abe, that would be because the story at issue is already relevant to Abe's views on the Japanese monarchy, foreign policy, military, and so on, and so a thread dedicated specifically to him would be identical to this one.

As for "bleeding heart", if thinking that the current Japanese emperor and son of Hirohito is right to consider reactionary reverence for the Showa Period an ill-advised course for Japan and largely agreeing with his ideas on the subjects mentioned makes me a "bleeding heart" then I suppose I'll bear the name without much concern.

In the historical records there are instances of retired emperor's, just not in post-Meiji period. Let him have the gold watch and retire!
