Saori Yoshida wins gold and wants a hug from Massu


Japan’s Saori Yoshida won the gold medal in the women’s 55kg freestyle wrestling today, and now she hopes NEWS’ Takahisa Masuda will keep his promise to her, reports Sports Navi.

Yoshida has won the gold medal in her category in every Olympics since Athens in 2004.

During an interview with Sports Navi, she said there was one thing she looked forward to doing other than more wrestling training.

“I want to meet Massu (laughs).  I’d like to get a hug from him, like he promised (on a show I was on before the Olympics).  I got the gold medal (laughs).  I read messages of support from NEWS fans on blogs, like, ‘one more win till you get that hug’, and I really think that helped me.”

Popular TV dog Zippei dies of heat stroke ):

Back in February, there was internet anger over the treatment of Zippei (ジッペイ), a dog that would travel around Japan for on Nihon TV’s Zip! morning show. Zippei often appeared on live broadcasts, yet never seemed to make any noise. It turned out that his lack of barking due to the fact that the dog had undergone surgery to remove his vocal cords. Some Japanese netizens thought it was cruel to surgically deprive a dog of its ability to make sounds, and questions were raised about NTV’s commitment to the welfare of performing animals.

The press is now reporting that Zippei has died. Here is the announcement made on the Zip! morning show:

According to the Yomiuri, the two dogs that took turns playing the role of Zippei died of heat stroke after being left in a hot automobile. The owner claims to have parked the vehicle in the shade and left the air conditioner running. A total of nine dogs were inside it. After returning to the car about an hour later, the air conditioner had apparently stopped working, and all the dogs had collapsed from the heat. Seven of the nine dogs died.

The YouTube video of NTV’s announcement has already received over 800 comments from Japanese netizens, many of whom doubt the story they are being told. In their eyes, both the owner and NTV already have a proven record of mistreating the dogs, so why should they be trusted?

It is truly saddening to think of those poor dogs, dying inside a hot vehicle, deprived of the ability to cry for help because their owner had them surgically de-barked.

Kis-my-ft2's first variety special: Kis-my-Busaiku



Kis-My-Ft2 will have a go at their first variety special, which will air one hour specials on August 18 and September 1 on Fuji TV.

So why Busaiku?  Because every since the group had made their debut in August last year, anti-fans and fans have been calling the group “busaiku (ugly)”.

But not to worry, the boys have been quick to get over it and are determined as ever to convince everyone that they can be cool.  In the show, the members will show off their cool side.
