This is the worst tsunami video I've found. Guess which structure was still safe in the end.
Do you know the game "Disaster Report"? You play a character that is trying to survive and escape from a city slowly collapsing because of big earthquakes. My coworker likes this game very much, but she said that "Disaster Report 4 Cancelled" was announced today. Ahh, what bad timing.
Ninja squirrel!!! He can scale walls very well.
Shonen Jump released the latest issue of their magazine for free this week for the people in Tohoku. It's only in Japanese, but if you like, go ahead and try reading it (you need to download a special viewer). Please check out Naruto, One Piece, and more!
Searching for Godzilla, I was so suprised to read this post!
Super strange ad from somewhere. I don't think WWF Japan made it, what are those characters on the wall?
Ken Watanabe created the site "Kizuna311" with his fellow artists to support the disaster-hit areas. He read a famous poem called "Ame ni mo makezu" that was written by Kenji Miyazawa, a poet from the Iwate prefecture (part of the tsunami disaster area). This is one of my favorites, a beautiful poem. This translation is better than the video.
I found this viral ad for Intel on the Internet! The ad's not released here in Japan, but I really like it.
I must admit, Japan Intel has made a lot of strange TV ads.
"Centrino, Centroino, Centrino"
"Travian, samuhai, samuhai!" The ballerina says: "This morning when I woke up, I became like this!! Hmm... Kafka world.
The pro soccer team Valencia changed their jerseys to spell out their names in katakana to cheer up Japan! Wow, so great! Thanks! That's lovely!

Finally, people are actually starting to freak out and some are panic buying. I really don't need to check Geiger counters or hoard a lot of toilet paper because the earthquake doesn't make me poo more than usual. But the good thing is that there are lot of people who are staying calm. Here are posters that advise people to "stop panic buying."
The Twitter #tag "#edano_nero" is hot in Japan now. Edano is the Chief Cabinet Secretary. Since the earthquake hit, he has been appearing on TV everyday and has been explaining what is going on in a calm tone of voice. He tries not to avoid questions from the press. Now people are tweeting with the tag “#edano_nero” at the end of their tweets to encourage Edano. It means “Edano— go to sleep” in Japanese. Because we know that he has not been sleeping enough during this disaster. And some Twitter users are getting frustrated at Prime Minister Kan. They have added the hashtag “kan_okiro” (Kan – Wake Up) at the end of their messages.
