(Police 16) Cheers!

Japanese love to drink. I'm not saying all the other nationalities don't. I'm just saying the "drinking" is very much a part of Japanese culture. They love it so much that most, if not all, of the workforces customarily would get together at the end of the year called  Bou-Nen-Kai (忘年会 roughly translates to "Let's forget about all the shitty things happen this year by drinking until the majority of us are ready to go streaking into the city.) and because that's not enough, at the beginning of the year, they'd have Shin-Nen-Kai (新年会 roughly translates to "Let's prepare us for the shitty year ahead by drinking until we're streaking in the city where we'd just streaked not so long ago.) Awesome.

But on the serious note, the Japanese officials have recently toughened up the law on drunk driving where if you're caught drunk driving, you can be fined up to approx. $10,000USD or be imprisoned for maximum of 5 years. And I believe this applies to all the passengers in the vehicle, not just the driver(Imprisonment with hard labor not exceeding 3 years or a fine not exceeding approx.$5,000USD for DUI; 2 years imprisonment, approx.$3,000USD fine for DWI.) Wow.

My recent visit to Japan was such an eye opener in this respect. I saw none of my friends drive drunk. There'd always be a designated driver, or we'd utilize public transportation, or utilize this service called the "Daiko" where you can hire a driver who would drive you, your company, and your car back to your destination. The cost of this service is almost equivalent to the taxi cab service.

Here's a flyer I found. It's called the "Heavy Metal Bou-Nen-Kai" I'm so there \m/

  9. Yeah, that was a little harsh man.

    Anyway, I was just wondering if you knew if you were going to continue to sub after this one is complete and what that might be if you do.

    And I was also wondering if you knew anything about when they announce the batsu game participants and if they have done it for this year yet?

    Thanks again for the sub. We all really appreciate it, more than you may know.

  10. The version of the police batsu i've seen(which this is not-this has a few extra scenes and in different order) ends soon after this, if it's like it it'll end in two maybe 3 more.

    As far as this year's batsu, I watch gaki each week and haven't seen anything mentioned yet.

  12. Don't know when they announce/film it, but they always show the new batsu on New Years Eve. Looking forward to it is the only good part of coming into Autumn/Winter.

    Cheers Shibata, God bless.

    Thank you ever so much for reminding me about something posted months ago. And thank you for pointing out that I don't deserve to watch this. I never knew that, really. I wonder, is it because I wasn't posting rude comments anonymously?

  17. Thx too for the "japanese culture" post you always make with each subbed part. This gives a perfect context for understanding Japan humor a little more.

  18. I agree with pyrokinetik, Hanako was really great. Was she the woman who sang in Ashita ga Arusa? She seemed familiar a little bit.

  19. Shabitabread has nicely timed the (upcoming) conclusion of his Police sub work. When it's done, he can have a short break before we start begging him to sub the new batsu airing in a couple months.
