Global Times online report — According to a December 2nd Japanese News Network report, the 13 contestants for the 46th annual “Miss Japan” beauty pageant attended a press meeting in Tokyo on the 2nd. These 13 contestants were selected from 2533 candidates across the nation, with the youngest being 16 years old and the oldest being 23 years old. The finals of the 46th “Miss Japan” competition will be held on 2014 January 27th and the theme for this competition is “the intelligent beauty that takes action”. The one to ultimately win the distinction of being Miss Japan will be among these 13 contestants, a cheerful woman who must not only be rich/colorful inside but also filled with curiosity, possessing the will to act. The youngest among the contestant this time was Sakaguchi Rikako, a high school student who previously won the honor of being 2012 “Miss Teen Japan”.

正义鹰派 [网易澳门网友]:

Have all the good looking ones gone to film AV [adult videos]?

lxyzero911 [网易广西南宁市网友]:

Is there a problem with my sense of aesthetics or a problem with the beauty pageants of the world?

You simply haven’t seen the Miss Chongqing and Miss Shandong of the ’12 Miss International Beauty Pageant.

Why do I think #21 is better looking than #17?

网易广东省广州市网友 ip:119.130.*.*:

Just passed Zhongshan Avenue, and a Japanese paper car rear-ended a Volvo. The front of the paper car was completely gone, with pieces scattered all over the ground, while the Volvo was indeed sturdy, the rear unbelievably seemingly without a dent (I was also driving and saw this as I passed by slowly). Fuck, “paper car” is truly a well-deserved reputation… true story.

只收三毛 [网易广东省佛山市网友]: (responding to above)

If the front of the car isn’t soft, don’t tell me you’d rather the pedestrian die?

单击开始 [网易浙江省温州市网友]:

Awaiting new AV.

网易江苏省盐城市网友 [风中落叶已飘零]:

Japan has too many things worth us learning from. Wake up, young people. Sigh.

只收三毛 [网易广东省佛山市网友]:

If they wake up, then society won’t be stable anymore.

网易自言自语 [网易广东省广州市网友]:

Japanese people’s sense of beauty truly is different from the rest.
