Harumafuji is one my favourite sumo wrestlers.

Loved when he was still Ama and still at miniscule 120 kg weight while beating guys much heavier than him.

I didn't kept track of latest championships and last tournament i watched Harumafuji was still an ozeki, but this promotion to yokozuna was just a matter of time. His class and style are clearly deserving of title of grand champion.

It's kinda pity all yokozuna's since 2000s were mongolian.

PS. Treat it as a fun subject for NWR to discuss, sumo is fun.

COMIKET is this weekend, where independent artists show off their homegrown creations. Comics, music, yaoi by the truckload, and ~*( GAMES )*~.

Here are the groups that are showin' games:

Anything jumping out that I should check out? Honestly the only thing on my plate so far is body pillows Yatagarasu.

I picked up a bunch of swag and comics today, content ranging from adorable to unforgivable. Tomorrow is the day with all the games. If you would like me to check out a certain table/group, post here or tweet at me. I'll have all day.

On the checklist: yatagarasu, easy game station (makers of recettear), katawa shoujo jp table

Time to blow the cobwebs off this thread!

Danny will have to be punished severely for this neglect.
Post suggestions of what should be done.

Or you could ask a "Life in Japan" style question, that'd be cool too!

Does this post mean I'm back?

Mmmmmaybe... ;)

What I want to know is whether this means Jon Lindemann's James Charlton impression will make a comeback.
I'm kind of a snarky bastard.

Remind me to do my impression of an American doing an impression of a British guy on the next podcast I may...or may not be appearing on.  :-X

Come on guys we need some Life in Japan(tm) ideas for the next show!


Danny, Ty and myself just finished recording FC41, but we need some for the next show. We will hopefully start doing 2 episodes a month if we have enough content, so it all falls on you guys to give us stuff to talk about!


Like I mentioned on the last "live" episode (FC40), I will give an awesome (small) prize to the best questions and suggestions!

Hey you Japanese 3DS owners. I have a Smash Bros. question:

Does the 3DS version have single cart/download play with local friends, like Mario Kart 7 does?
I doubt it but a guy can dream, can't he?

Hey Fatty! been a while! :cool;

Unfortunately the answer is what you probably expected....Nope.
I guess if friends don't have it they can d/l the demo and you can all play with those 5 characters... :-\

Much appreciated for the reply, famicomplicated. Really enjoyed the last famicast, glad you're back.

It's not friends (what are those?) I am worried about playing with, it's the kids. I am staring down the barrel of possibly buying three copies of Smash 3DS. And who am I kidding, it would largely be in aid of my own amusement: I want to play Smash with them on 3DS! Time to sit them down and talk about how interested they are in the game and whether they would be willing to pony up a little allowance money they're currently hoarding, cheap little bastards!
Uh, wait, sorry. Ignore that last part.  :-[

Glad that you're glad that I'm back!

I'd say without a doubt the WiiU version would be best for you there. They can just practice with the 3DS demo for now.
If they play the demo to death and are craving for more (and can't wait 2 months), then you can start turning over their rooms for hidden stashes of pocket money!

How expensive is life in Japan?

Things like groceries, rent, do you pay for TV and stuff.

I have discussed the matter with son #1. He stated we could still play the demo if we wanted to brawl together until the Wii U version comes out (just like you suggested, famicomplicated!) . But he was adamant I get the cartridge so we all could swap it around. I whined about my desire to download have the game always available on my system. Our conclusion: 2 copies, one download, one physical. Better than 3 copies!


Still undecided, though. For sure I will get a cartridge tomorrow. I will have to think about the download.

I guess it's all relative!
I mean, I've been living here for 10 years, my salary is in Yen, I buy things in Yen, I think in Yen. So for me everything is reasonably priced, with the exception of fruit for some reason which is incredibly high!


But for someone living in a country with a poorer economy like the US, I could see it being considered "expensive" for a majority of things!
If you're from a super-high economy country like Australia and New Zealand, then many things would be considered "cheap", especially videogames!


It's funny you mention rent though, I still consider that to be very high and very unfairly priced. When you move somewhere you have to pay rent FOUR OR FIVE TIMES OVER in advance just to move in, and you will never see that back. Therefore for a 80,000yen apartment (average size/price for Japan) you will have to pay up to 400,000 up front ($3,700 American dollars!).


As for TV, some people pay the NHK (national broadcaster) fee, but most don't (they lie and say they don't watch TV). You can also pay for cable and/or satellite for some US channels like BBC News, FOX and MTV Japan.


Hope that's a satisfying enough answer for ya!

I was actually hoping to get a life in Japan segment on possibly one of the most serious epidemics that is sweeping Japan and the way Video Games tie into it.


I'd like to hear Danny and Ty's perspectives on the issues of the seriously declining birth rate, and the tough dating scene with the stereotype of Japanese women demanding too much of their partners who in turn are too submissive these days and merely shelter theselves in synthetic relationships. What are your experiences with Love+ and Dakimakuras? what's it like going to the sorts of resort towns and places that try to cater to the likes of people who date their dating sim synthetic partners? does being a Gaijin and chilling around Roppungi truly make it easier to date? As a married man who's managed to do what many of the younger members of the populace have failed to do, what is your perspective on this staggering issue, James? Does Ty own an B. Orchid Dakimakura?
