An interest in cosplay should be a key no-no for any job prospect evaluation by human resources, as I have said countless times* here on the 3Yen.

Why the rise of cosplay is a bad sign for the economy

FEMM’s Tokyo Takeover

MTV Japan has a real winner wiener here…

F.E.M.M.Far East Mention Mannequins’ Tokyo Takeover, an alternative guide to the Japan’s capital…MTV 81femm-tokyo-takeover_crop

Japan’s MTV has always been the wildly unsuccessful, bastard child of the MTV’s localized channels worldwide. As a whole, MTV doesn’t translate well into Japanese and saccharine J-Pop doesn’t present well in the MTV format.

Translation: said-openIf you were allowed to walk the polar bear in Shibuya, this is what it would look like, ha, ha.said-closed

The above polar bear costume was seen walking to a TV interview in Shibuya last night—I guess it’s always best to test your costume fully before Halloween.

Bidding reopened for Olympic stadium construction
Oct. 8, 2014, TOKYO (AP) – A new round of bidding for construction of the main stadium for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics will delay the start of the problematic project.
Some of the bids were reviewed by someone in the decision committee before all bids were in, a violation of the rules, Japan Sport Council official Takayuki Ito said on Tuesday.
Another round of bidding is due this month”We need to revamp the whole system of planning for the Olympic stadium,” he said, acknowledging there were too many problems.

white space is good for the soul The True Reason for the irrational waste of money on the 2020 Olympics...

The new Tokyo Olympic stadium is just a cover for the underground base being built beneath it for PM Abe’s gray alien allies. Building these underground bases to house giant robots and giant robot research facilities is hard to keep secret; that’s the real reason for the construction rebidding the stadium project.

My Neighbor Totoro Worm?

One of Japan’s favorite anime’s characters, My Neighbor Totoro –– Tonari no Totoro (imdb.com), has a new scientific friend: the Eoperipatus totoro!

Totoro-worm

questioning totoro

Actually, the Eoperipatus totoro has been discovered for few years but was only formally described in 2013. The generic name Eoperipatus is derived from a Greek combining form of ēṓs, meaning “early” or “primeval”, and peripatos, meaning “walking about”. Miyazaki's anime My Neighbor Totoro cat bus

The specific name “totoro” refers to the Japanese animated film My Neighbor Totoro since the scientists were reminded specifically of the multiple legged caterpillar-like Catbus in the film when they saw the crawling velvet worm—(Wikipedia).
