      I don’t know if I’m looking forward to watching this or not. I hope it offers some glimmers of hope but I have a feeling we may all end up even more depressed. Let’s hope not.

    2. Johnny Says:

      Taro Kono came across as a right wanker.

      — I’m afraid I agree. Seemed to be trying too hard to represent the LDP.

    3. Mumei Says:

      There was a lot of useless banter, but at it was better than I was expecting. It covered many of the major issues, including:
      -alien / resident card and the requirement to carry
      -voting rights for PR; argument for was taxation without representation; however, that is just as true for non-PR workers as well
      -special class of special PR and visas for half Brazil / Japanese
      -immigration policy: acceptance is not so much about blood as Japanese language ability
      -naturalization; unfortunately, there was no discussion about duel-citizen

      However, in the end, it lacked any real conclusions, resolutions, or even recommendations. But perhaps more Japanese may become aware of the many issues foreigners have in Japan.

    4. James Johnston Says:

      I’m currently out of the country, but would love to watch this… *sigh* Suggestions for getting my hands on this in other means?
