Japan Decides! 2009!

After a good, long run, we have decided to close our forums in an effort to refocus attention to other sections of the site. Fortunately for you all, we're living in a time where discussion of a favorite topic now has a lot of homes. So we encourage you all to bring your ravenous love for discussion to Chuck's official Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. And, as always, you can still post comments on all News updates. Thank you for your loyalty and passion over the years. These changes will happen June 1.

aka Indecision '09: The Race To The Diet

So apparently one of the most powerful economies on the planet is going to the polls tomorrow (well, it's 'today' already over there). Apparently it's looking like Taro Aso, head of the Liberal Democratic Party (right-of-centre conservatives, who knew?) which has dominated post-war Japanese politics, is going to be replaced with Yukio Hatoyama of the Democratic Party of Japan.

The economic melt-down, sleaze allegations and frequent gaffes of its leader have rocked people's confidence in the LDP, but the DPJ is said to be making a lot of promises without explaining how they're planning on backing them up.

So, who are you supporting?
