Dai-Cast Zeta 001 - the New Japanese Prime Minister
This week, we’re introducing a new monthly feature; “Dai Cast Zeta”, where whe pick one particular topic on Japan or Japanese pop culture, and stick with it, exhaustivly expressing our opinions for your education, elucidation, emancipation, and mental emolument. And hopefully, summarily beat it into the ground, so that we never need to revisit the topic again.
First up on Dai-Cast Zeta, the recent turmoil surrounding the departure of former Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, his supposed replacement Taro Aso, and the eventual “winner” of this race, Yasuo Fukuda.
So sit back, and prepare to be educated at!
