Be careful with your English

After Ayaka Shiomura has insulted by cowards in the Tokyo Metropolitan Assembly a few weeks ago, Prime minister Abe decided to make a website to show his support for the women of Japan. This was the title page. Can you see something strange?

How many people do you think read this before it went online? Professionals paid a lot of money to make this didn't notice? That's right. After everything that happened, Abe makes a website for the women of Japan and tells them all to "DIE" on the title page. It is so stupid I almost can't believe it is true. You see SHINE in romanji sounds like しね or DIE (氏ね) in Japanese. If you are going to use just one word of English Mr Abe, try to make sure it doesn't mean something else in your own language next time. LOL !

  1. Yes, you're right. All Japanese don't read English, but all of us know romaji. Using 2nd language, we should pay attention to own language.
