    Nowhere else to put this but just found out that one of my favorite Japanese actors passed away in an apparent suicide. So young with a budding career ahead of him, and many hit movies/dramas already under his belt. He also dabbled in singing, and his second single was set to be released next month. Quite unbelievable and a complete tragedy for the J-industry.

    RIP Haruma Miura. :(

    There seems to be a lot of that going around, unfortunately Japan is one of those countries that has a big stigma about mental health, so there's a lot of depression based suicide particularly amongst young people.

    I've just learned that Miura was due to co-star with Ikuta Erika of Nogizaka46 in a production of Whistle Down the Wind in Tokyo which had to be postponed due to Covid. She withdrew from the group's appearance on the Ongaku no Hi TV show today. :(

    Long story in the NY Times: The Fall of ‘Terrace House’

    [Hana Kimura's] death sparked a national reckoning with cyberbullying in Japan and brought a sudden, tragic end to “Terrace House.” Fuji TV quickly canceled the remainder of the current season and hasn’t said if the show will ever return. (Netflix, which continues to carry existing episodes, including those featuring Kimura, declined to comment for this article.)

    But those close to Kimura like her mother, Kyoko Kimura, continue to wonder to what extent the gentle reality show set Hana up for a fatal emotional decline. This week she filed a complaint with a Japanese broadcasting ethics watchdog, the Broadcasting Ethics & Program Improvement Organization, implicating the show in Kimura’s death and alleging that the show depicted Hana as an aggressive and violent person, infringing upon her personal rights.

    She remains deeply disappointed with the response to the tragedy — or lack thereof — by Fuji TV, East Entertainment (the production company that works on “Terrace House”) and Netflix.

    “I’ve heard a deafening silence,” she said. “She was working so hard. It was all for someone else’s monetary benefit.”

    Much more with other cast members, some claiming that confrontations were staged and others saying staff didn't make suggestions to them.

    2 months later and that death still pisses me off.

    The new GUNDAM Café TOKYO BRAND CORE in Akihabara opened today:



    The camera shows it from right to left - the right-hand part has taken over the site of the AKB48 Cafe and Shop which closed at the end of last year.

    I believe Japan will be one of the first countries to leave the Covid behind. It takes rational people to do what it's necessary now. Unfortunately, the Spaniards aren't too good at that... :fp:
