  1. Here before the mouth-breathing army of weebs that fawn over Japan show up to comment 'Japan's so amazing' and 'it's like they're living a century ahead of us, what a perfect society'

  2. Nice video, but a big dislike for Japanese translation, which didn't consider the context of the words and phrases, how English language is spoken, and how the different culture affects the way of speech. There are problems on every single piece of translation, and some of them just make the sentence not understandable at all.
    For example 1:51, those Japanese way of speech originated from local humility culture, like "緊張感" (nervousness) and "自信" (confidence) in Dr. Konishi's sentence, doesn't exist in English way of speech. It should be translated to a way that English users are able to understand, like "It is very hard to design this building / The first problem we met is wind / The building stands only 8 km away from the sea / The sea breeze is strong even in calm weather".
    Another example would be 2:31 "色んなデバイスなどが 制振の方法が", as the translation in the video is just word to word translated like "various (色んな) device (デバイス) and damping (制振の) methods (方法)", but instead it should be translated as "vibration control technique". The whose paragraph would be "Regular vibration control techniques used on most buildings / cannot be applied to this tall and thin building / so we developed a unique method to make the building safe".
