There are survivors

Back in 2008, Namazu hit the silver screen:

Well, Code 252 has not the same scenario like 3/11. The earthquake has „just“ a magnitude of 5 and the Tsunami got replaced by a Typhoon. The 3rd disaster? No way, that was a total taboo by the production code. And a nuclear accident still is in the showbiz of Japan. That experience made the popular actor Taro Yamamoto, who played the angry guy in the team of heroic firemen who save people against all odds:

Yamamoto faced a secondary boycott for his Battle Royal against the nuclear lobby of Japan. His market rating went down because his movies haven’t been shown any longer on TV, job offers are -10% and falling. Nobody calls him a persona non grata, but he actually became a pariah. It’s like the Hollywood blacklist, just behind the scenes. But Yamamoto decided to stay a hero in real life and uses his additional „leisure time“ to blow the whistle even louder. For example, as member of the Japanese delegation at the anti-nuclear protest in Gorleben. There’s an article about his cameo here (please use Google translate). I would like to give him some moral support with a Namazu-e-shirt, but I couldn’t find any adress where to ship it. His official website generates always Code 403

Raider heißt jetzt Twix… sonst ändert sich nix, ich suche immer noch einen Job als Scherzkeks.
