Japanese film maker Nagisa Oshima, responsible for writing and directing a number of controversial and provocative movies in his lifetime, passed away on Tuesday afternoon at the age of 80. He died at a hospital in Kanagawa Prefecture after struggling with pneumonia for some time, along with paralysis after a stroke late in his life.
Born and raised in Kyoto, Oshima left University and moved to Tokyo to join the Shochiku production house. There, he turned away from the influence of Japan’s most celebrated film directors, including Yasujirô Ozu, Kenji Mizoguchi, and Akira Kurosawa, instead looking toward’s France’s Jean-Luc Godard. Credited with kick-starting Japan’s own new wave filmmaking style, Oshima’s first title, A Town Of Love And Hope, was released in 1959. His art-house films became recognized for criticizing society, and Oshima himself became known for fearlessly speaking out and standing up to any attempts of censorship. Never one to be tied to a specific genre, Oshima addressed issues from sex and crime to politics and social life.
While smartphones with all their advanced features are becoming commonplace among the larger public, there are still those who are loyally sticking to the Fujitsu “F-series” phones because of its stealth privacy features that earned its popular nickname – uwaki keitai or “infidelity phone”.
The fliphone has become a popular unit for those who are hiding their illicit affairs because of its “privacy mode” that hides missed calls, emails and text messages from contacts designated as private. If that contact gets in touch, the only signal is a subtle change in the color or shape of how the battery sign or antenna bars are displayed. If the user ignores the call, the number or caller doesn’t appear on the activity log. Fujitsu and other Japanese phone makers cannot adopt such customized features anymore because most smartphones run on the Android operating system. They were only able to create those features because the older Japanese phones used to run on software that was specifically for the domestic market.

Higashihara’s blog has been dubbed ”Death Blog” by the Japanese internet, a reference to Death Note, a popular manga about a supernatural notebook that possess the power to kill whoever’s name is written in it. Similar to the fictional “Death Note”, internet legend has it that whatever Higashihara writes about in her “Death Blog” is destined to meet an unfortunate fate.
For example, in 2010, Higashihara blogged about her visit to a famous shrine in Kamakura, mentioning: “I wanted to eat ginko nuts!” Two months later, a 1000-year-old sacred ginko tree located in the shrine was completely uprooted and severely damaged.
In 2012, she wrote a post about the hardships of raising children, saying: “My kids were fast asleep at 8:30 tonight. This is completely unrelated, but it makes me feel a little better when I think that even pandas neglect their kids.” The next day, the first baby giant panda to be born in Japan in 24 years was found dead — at 8:30 am.
Still not convinced? On January 16, 2013, All Nippon Airways (ANA) grounded 17 of its Boeing 787 Dreamliner planes for inspection after one had to make an emergency landing due to smoke suddenly appearing in the cockpit. Japan Airlines similarly grounded their Dreamliner fleet following the incident.
You’ll never guess what Aki Higashihara blogged about last month.
Lightning will have new abilities and magic spells in Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII. It seems like there is some kind of guard and evasion system in the game too. Players will be able to take side quests posted on a bulletin board and clearing these might extend the time the world survives.
Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII gives Lightning new costumes. Don’t like it? You can change her look by obtaining different "wear." There are three kinds of wear in a set and you can equip wear in battle. Lightning’s default costume is called Equilibrium. The Dark Muse outfit gives Lighting a camouflage jacket, knife, and a lattice style shield. The Shadow Dust costume is kind of like samurai armor.
Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII is slated for release this fall on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
