Rurouni Kenshin Densetsu no Saigo-hen 3-days total exceeded 1.3 billion yen

With Monday as a holiday (Respect the Elder Day), the three days box-office total has exceeded 1.3 billion yen. And the two days total over the weekend of more than 900 million yen with more than 700K attendance.

This placed Rurouni Kenshin as the biggest opener this year. The last time a live-action has exceeded 900 million yen is when Umizaru: The Last Message opens in 2012. And the last time the attendance has exceeded 700K is when Rookies opened back in 2009. That film, coincidentally, also starred Sato Takeru (^^)

Did anyone else think of doing a tone deaf test because of the most recent Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun episode? I gave it a try and wow, I would have got 100% but I accidentally picked an option I didn’t want to. Try for yourself! It was pretty fun for me.

I guess I make Yuu Kashima’s all over the world depressed.

Result: Not tone deaf!

Stage A: 11/12
Stage B: 12/12
Stage C: 10/12
Final score: 33/36 = 91%

Congratulations, you are not tone deaf!

Science

the-right-writing:

Science has been severely misrepresented by authors. If you want to write about scientific worldviews accurately, here are some tips.

  • If a scientist saw something supernatural and could be assured it existed, they wouldn’t scream “that’s impossible!” or try to destroy it because it doesn’t fit their worldview. They would be more likely to say “How interesting. I wonder how this will change my theories. I’d better incorporate it into my worldview.”
  • Scientists have morals just like the rest of us. In fact, many people become scientists because they want to help humanity. How is that so hard to understand?
  • A whole lot of scientists love nature and want to preserve it.
  • Scientists who have helped to create deadly weapons almost always regret it. Politicians who order those weapons to be used don’t.
  • Science in general would be attracted to magic, not repulsed by it. A new thing to study with possible new applications to help mankind? How wonderful!
  • How well a scientist understands people and gets along socially is up to the individual. They’re not an entire profession of evil, cold robots.
THIS. One of the reason why I’m glad Keigo Higashino, a scientist himself, is the one writing Galileo.
