Here is the Rena vs Hisae Watanabe Shootboxing match: https://ja-jp.facebook.com/video/video.php?v=242346239152730 Watanabe got her ass kicked by little Rena, despite talking about how she would teach that brat a lesson.

Thanks for the Sakuraba Highlight! I find it embarrassing to admit this, but this is the first time I've ever read about him. :oops: But, in my defense, I don't follow male MMA so much.

Re: Fist in Japan

That's alright. I was just wondering if those fighters' popularity was felt in Japan in general. If you are not into it, then of course these fighters won't be on your radar. It's the same with most sports, I suppose - although, it's true, bigger events such as soccer, and whatnot, do have players s...

Re: Fist in Japan

So, can I ask you a couple of questions? How do the Japanese watch movies? I mean... Given the insane number of movies getting released in Japan, it must mean people are still attending the cinemas quite so often, no? So, do people attend movies straight after work, or more on holidays, or what? I m...

The Japanese do love their movie culture. I am glad they are preserving it. If I lived in Japan, I'd probably spend a lot of time in cinemas, for sure! Right now, it's too far away from me.

When you own official and rare releases, or travel to catch them on festivals and on archive screenings, that's when you get my respect. I used to buy DVD box-sets from Japan, and they cost me around a 100 Euro each... Stuff is expensive there. But that is how Japanese economy is structured - aroun...

Re: Sion Sono

Good reasoning there, though it still doesn't make me any more forgiving for the ending. One of the problems with CGI is that it allows filmmakers to do something they don't have the necessary resouces / skill for. If Sono knew couldn't do it well, he shouldn't have tried it at all, but instead do ...

Re: The State of Japanese Cinema

The Japanese are producing, like, a 1000 movies a year, or something... Surely some of those movies are going to suck. The thing is that the Japanese industry is still set up to roll like a machine, and it's still mostly about studios wanting to make money in whatever way. I think some of the old-fe...
