Japanese Anchorman Ages Quickly Over 3 Years


Pictures of a Japanese news anchorman suddenly aging very quickly within 3 years amuse many Chinese netizens. Many offer different reasons for what happened.

Comments from KDS:

NHK‘s most famous anchorman. The first time I saw him I knew he was a drug addict.

Too horny…that is what led to this…


[He] belongs to a rich woman.

AFFE vandit:

I want to see what he looks like in February 2009.

Aaron maR aaronmar:

With how he looks in 2007, he should already have stepped down~~

It is obvious that the dates have been changed. You can tell the time period just by looking at the background.
CCTV’s backgrounds were much more modern even in 2004, so I think this is probably from Japan’s 70s.

Part-time male porn star probably.

oldman cwcih:

Looks like CCTV is still more relaxed.

It should be real. From what my Japanese friend(s) tell me, the salary for working at Japan’s television channels is very high, but the intensity of the work is unimaginable.
The people inside pretty much all have a sleeping bag, and they all eat and sleep at the television station, bearing huge pressure/stress…not like this bunch of pimp sluts in China television who depend on sex and connections for their meals.

Mars. [This commenter is saying the original poster must have come back from Mars because this picture first appeared last year in May.]

Comments from Xcar:


The vast majority of Japanese women do not work after getting married and become full-time mothers all depending on the man to take care of them.


It is the trend to have dyed white hair, like Obama.


Have the Japanese evolved yet again?


Regarding stress/pressure, Chinese men are number one in the world.


Does this anchorman use drugs?…

Comments from Jan Dan:


This is too exaggerated.


This bastard is about to die soon.


Why do they continue having him broadcast? Does Japan lack people?


Japanese people simply love to do their hair.


? Dyed and dyed again?


He aged 10 years in one year.

Through her tireless translation of popular Chinese internet news and phenomenon, her English has apparently gotten dramatically better. At least, reading and writing-wise.
