one week in japan

aristophania  asked:

So, let's talk about Victor Nikiforov for a minute. What do you think his headspace was during that one week in Japan before Yurio arrived? He's flown all the way to Hasetsu only to be summarily rejected by Yuri, but he doesn't go home. He decides to do the coach thing but bans Yuri from the rink until he drops some weight. What's going on with him for that week? The only scene we really see is the 'do you have feelings for Minako' one.

THIS IS AN EXCELLENT QUESTION. Sorry I took so long to get back. I’m gonna split this meta into two parts, because I have lots of feelings about episode 2:

1. The week of confusion and skating your feelings

2. When life gives you Yuri Plisetsky, make Yuuri fired up

Ace Japanese promo poster/DVD art for Bronson that I’ve never seen before. This is from back in 2015, when Bronson opened for a special one-week showing at a theatre in Tokyo.

015.10.20 ~ “So far in Japan, this work was not in theaters only available on DVD releases. A lot of voices saying ‘I want to see it on the screen’ were received from the movie-going audience, so a late show in Shinjuku Cinema Carité from 7th to 13th November was set up.“ ~ Source: Cinemas by Shochiku 

And a kind of adorable review from someone who saw it [google transl.]: "Other people will also appear, but basically it was a movie named Tomhu Hardy One Man Show, whose stage as it was. Tomhu Hardy is awesome. The last grinning voice. Although it was funny that Tomhu of a beard smiled a lot by laughing a lot as brawling with himself. Even though there is nothing I can not tell you why the color is beautiful and strange.”

the-last-alicorn  asked:

Can we just take a moment to reflect on how ingenious the formula for the Kamen Rider/Super Sentai series is? Each season is effectively a reboot that last for a year, with a definite tonal and design shift for each season so that you'll never get bored with the premise and you'll always check out the next season to see if you'll like it better. Plus all the merchandise. Theoretically, Toei could keep these series running FOREVER. That is just insane to me. Awesome, but insane.

It’s something you really wouldn’t see in the US, where continuity matters so much.  It’s also amazing because it means there are NEVER breaks between seasons. Because they are different shows with different actors and different directors and people working on them, you can have the next series in production while the one before it is still airing. 

Contrast that with an American or even British production where there are huge gaps between seasons to accommodate time off needed for the actors, writers and producers. You would never see a series (aside from a game show or news program) running continuously year after year, one seasons starting right after the other.  Especially not a scripted sci-fi/fantasy series heavy on effects.

However, thanks to the format of Kamen Rider/Super Sentai you do have that in Japan.  When one series ends, another starts the week after.  You don’t really get a break and it actually creates a kind of interest months before the new show starts.  Heck, I was so psyched when the NAME Uchuu Sentai Kyuranger got leaked with what the possibilities might be for the next show even while I was still very much enjoying Dobutsu Sentai Zyuohger

I bet all of us fans get at least a little excited when we start hears rumors about what’s coming next or see the initial designs for a new series.  We also know that it will be coming so soon once those start to be revealed. It’s also a great marketing idea because if you, for some reason, don’t enjoy the current series you just have to wait a little while and something NEW will come along. It creates a lot less drop off than if, say, the current season of NCIS is crap and you have to wait through reruns and a huge break before you get more of the same with the same characters and same writers.  There is something to be said for that constant renewal you get with Japanese tokusatsu series.

anonymous asked:

I'm a bit surprised you aren't participating in the SephGen week! o_o I thought you would give us some of the nsfw work. no I'm not thirthy for your art... nOOoo. Anyway, I'll just have to read what you already did again, bc it's that good u_u

Ahh, I’m really sorry anon!! Believe me, I would’ve loved to participate. Unfortunately, I’m still in Japan at the moment and the amount of time I have to actually write anything is a big fat zero. orz I haven’t even had a chance to start on my fic for the fanworks exchange yet either (but omg I want to so bad because the prompt I want to write is just hhhnnnnngggh yes).

Maybe if I have a lot of time free when I get home I’ll try and do one or two very belated things for the SephGen week! But yeah. Japan has murdered any semblance of free time. DX But I did get to hoard so much doujinshi, so.

(I actually found a SephGen anthology doujinshi! Sadly I’ve already mailed it to myself so I no longer have access to the book, but as a tiny contribution to the SephGen have a few dodgy photos I took from it. EDIT: if the wifi will fucking work and upload my pictures urgh. DX)

bubbleteahime  asked:

hello hicchan! congrats on becoming the ambassador for Japan! (I'm the taiwan ambassador hehe) So, I've been recently researching and I've found out this thing called Golden Week in Japan that's like a string of holidays in a week? But I don't understand how it works ╮( ̄▽ ̄"")╭ can you please explain?

Congratulations to you too for becoming the ambassador of Taiwanヽ(•̀ω•́ )ゝ✧

Yes Golden Week/ゴールデンウイーク is a string of holidays in Japan and it’s basically 4 national holidays in a week. It’s one of the busiest days/weeks in Japan. 

So the “week” starts from April 29th which is The Emperor’s Birthday, and this used to be a national holiday to celebrate the birth of Emperor Showa. After the Emperor passed away, in 1989, it became what it is known as Showa Day to remember the hardships and the recoveries made in Showa Period, as well as the birth of Emperor Showa and his reign.
After April 29th, the next holiday is May 3rd which is the Constitution Memorial Day, and it is the celebration of promulgation of the 1947 Constitution of Japan. It’s a day to reflect on the meaning of democracy and the Japanese Government.
May 4th is the Greenery/Green Day. Before Greenery Day was declared on May 4th, this day used to be Holiday for the Citizens Day and it’s a holiday for the citizens of Japan to take a day off, BY LAW. In 2007 National Greenery Day became official and it’s a day to appreciate the nature and the blessing of the environment. ((Greenery Day was originally on April 29th from 1989-2006, and it was created because of Emperor Showa’s love for nature and plants during wartime and it was named this was so to not directly mentioning his name))
Lastly May 5th is the National Children’s Day and it is a day to pray for the health and growth of all children. On this day people usually hang up Koinobori, display traditional Japanese military helmet Kabuto and eat ricecakes

The name of the week, Golden Week, was first originally used by movie companies to taken an advantage of the “golden” opportunity to see the film. The term gradually was used by people and later became official name to refer to the string of holidays. 

During this week most companies close down and sometimes longer, and the workers go on a paid vacation. Because there are no other long holidays in Japan for working people, except for Obon and End of Year and New Years, this is the only long holiday they get. It’s the time of the year when it’s not too cold or hot so many people travel to place with their family and their friends. Most people now go abroad to other countries such as Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapre, Europe, Australia, Hawaii and more. It’s not the best time to come visit Japan as most touristy places would be clouded with people on Golden Week.  

So to sum things up

  • Golden Week is a holiday where 4 national holidays are in the week
  • Most companies will close down and workers gets a paid vacation
  • It’s a week where most people go on a holiday to visit places or to relax
  • and it’s not the best time to visit Japan

I hope this helps and hope you understand Golden Week more
