It amazes me how both socially progressive yet culturally conservative Japan is.
To be fair, ten years ago we were all arguing that women on the frontlines was a exceptional idea and still believe so.

But yeah, case in point, bypassing pixelated genitals by replacing penises with tentacles. What do you expect from a country where change tends to comes more abruptly rather than gradually since modern times, and has an crazy government bureaucracy?

Honestly Japan just ought to make JSDF service mandatory for everyone ala Israel. Get the neets out of their houses and interacting with people.
IIRC, it was reported the average age of hikikomori has increased, meaning it's only really beem a problem for earlier millennials, who aren't at the ideal military age anymore.

Use KanColle and GuP in the posters, so some danger hair thousands of miles away can claim there's a conspiracy to use anime to re-militarize Japan and invade poor widdle China six golirrion times.
I could've sworn that I remember China themselves complaining about Japan encouraging nationalism with some cute-girls-doing-military-things anime a few years back, but doing some searches doesn't turn anything specific up. Might've been either Kantai Collection or High School Fleet - I'm pretty sure it wasn't quite as far back enough to be GuP.

Like I said, though, can't find references to it, so I can't say for sure if it was actually widespread sentiment in China, or just some minor government official making comments.

Japan's nearby neighbor in South Korea also has mandatory military service. But then again, I'd see Japan not doing that, just for the sake of not "copying" their neighbor.

They'll bounce back eventually, or at least they'll have to because there's no fucking way they're going to do what the EU keeps hinting that they should do in a not-so-subtle way.

I heard a similar thing with South Koreans complaining about Code Geass and GATE

I propose funneling the consumption tax on all waifu/husbando merchandise into large tax breaks for parents of actual child children.

Nigga japs can barely have a few hours for themselves and you expect them to have kids?
Unless you are a yakuza member/goverment official having children is a death wish if you dont want to kill yourself
Pregnant women get shamed at work for being pregnant. Also you are expected to stop working forever once you give birth. That means lots of women focus on their careers and also don't marry.

I saw a documentary about the rare case of a japanese woman who leads a company with only female employees who are mothers. The working hours are way shorter (for japan) so that mothers can work and spend time with their children. One mother was exited because she "only" had to work 7 hours.

This is entirely new for japan. Change happens but slow, too slow.

If birthrates are decreasing, shouldn't the Japs be encouraged to have sex more?
Considering how super-sexualized their culture already is, I can hardly see how you could even more encourage them to have sex. All kinds of perversions and fetishes are quite openly advertised and stuff that is sold in the west only in pornographic stores is in every supermarket. Their low birth-rates aren't, in my opinion, a result of them having too inactive sexual lives, but more likely like with the western European countries, due to generally high standards of living and education enjoyed by the population.

Oh yeah?

Also, this was the bitch I was referencing. She also calls Soul Calibur "Virtual Colonialism."

Well that would be a twist, but then Japan could be a shitlord and say they did it first and South Korea just inherited it after colonialism.

I didn't know the weekend was a few hours.

Already the number of "guest" worker visas has been increased, and there has been a record rate in increase of non-Japanese residents ever since Abe's "nationalist" government took power in 2012. Of course, the government assures things won't be like Western Europe, except everything which it has been doing is how the issue got out of hand in Europe. We'll see...

Pregnant women are unproductive and unstable at work in their final stages of pregnancy, as well as a liability if something were to happen. However, paid maternity leave is still a contentious issue for many developed countries anyway.

Hardly, just like the streets aren't lined with vending machines selling used girl's panties. You have to specifically be looking for it in back alleys of a major city's red light district. Even there, the most open thing is people trying to attract customers.

But yeah, high standards of living, urbanization, and general disinterest in starting a family all work against a stable birthrate.

Notice that they're not from the regions that the EU keeps pushing Japan to take people from, which was my point.

Record 385 foreigners in Japan stripped of resident status in 2017
Sep. 29 03:49 pm JST


TOKYO
Japan revoked the resident status of a record 385 foreigners staying in the country in 2017 on the back of a surge in suspicious cases involving students, the Justice Ministry said.

The figure soared 31.0 percent from a year earlier to hit the highest level since 2005 when comparable data became available.

With cases linked to student status doubling from a year earlier and accounting for 44.7 percent of the total, a ministry official said an overall rise in the number of foreign students in Japan may have pushed up the figure.

As of May last year, the number of foreign students in Japan stood at a record 267,042, up 27,755 from a year earlier, according to the Japan Student Services Organization.

In some cases, students were found to have remained in Japan after being expelled from school.

By type of status revoked, spouse or child of Japanese nationals stood at 17.4 percent, including those who received that status through bogus marriages, followed by engineer/specialist in humanities/international services -- the qualification often used for landing jobs, at 17.1 percent.

Vietnamese nationals made up the largest proportion of foreigners deprived of their status at 46.5 percent, followed by Chinese at 21.8 percent and Filipinos at 7.8 percent.

Some foreigners were found to have obtained their status by listing the names of companies that had no plans to hire them in their visa applications.

The ministry also revoked the residency of foreign nationals who used the status they had obtained under the government-sponsored technical training program in order to work at another company after disappearing from their original workplace.

If document falsification and other circumstances deemed doubtful arise, the justice minister or the heads of regional immigration bureaus must decide whether to revoke resident status after hearing from the individual concerned.

If stripped of their resident status, foreign nationals face deportation and can be detained at immigration facilities in the country.

Amid a labor crunch, the government is aiming to lure more foreign workers and students to Japan while stepping up its crackdown on those who remain in the country illegally.

Tokyo is set to open the door to blue-collar laborers from abroad next April and upgrade the ministry's Immigration Bureau to an agency to respond to the anticipated surge in foreign workers.

The justice and labor ministries are expected to share information on the employment situation of foreign nationals so that they can swiftly identify those whose activities are incompatible with their status. Police and local immigration bureau branches will also collaborate to strengthen the clampdown on those staying in the country illegally.

The number of foreign workers in Japan doubled from 680,000 in 2012 to a record 1.28 million as of October 2017, according to statistics compiled by the Health, Labor and Welfare Ministry.

In 2015, a record 15,657 foreign students landed jobs in Japan right after graduating from schools in the country, according to the Justice Ministry.

But to work in Japan, foreign students need to switch their resident status in line with the industries in which they work.
