Maybe you should read the threads -- your arguments are simply off the mark and lack depth. Akishino was "brilliant" at planning this? Maybe the physicians were brilliant -- and Kiko was, uh,...

Japan's inheritance issue is a very complicated issue as I think the discussion on this thread reflects -- there are suspected sibling issues, mental health issues, issues of the role of religion and...

I would like to think the little child will not succumb to depression like Masako and Michiko. It seems their depressions (although their circumstances were somewhat different) stemmed ultimately...

...and yet, there are no good photos showing Kiko's tummy- just side views of big jackets - so we don't even know if there is really one baby, let alone two or three....:lol:

I don't have any beef with Kiko at this point. I would add, though, that you can't really compare her relaxed, happy look with Masako. Kiko hasn't been under the kind of pressure Masako has until...

Charlotte, do you mean to say that "extreme traditionalist thinking" is the whole Imperial Establishment, though? And if the Diet is a representative democracy --- why isn't more of the "thinking...

I know. I feel the same way. Talk about a diluted line through the numerous concubines employed over centuries all for the sake of producing through the male. The rationale for this seems...

Please someone correct me if I am wrong -- but I believe I read that the "Emperor-ship" has to pass through the male line. If that is true, then Nori's son wouldn't qualify because it has gone...

Alexandria, as I recall the statement just said, "the couple do not wish to know the gender of the baby until delivery".

Has Akishino expressed a favorable view to the use of concubines? I hadn't read that. I certainly hope that is not the case here even though we have really not been privileged to photos of the...

HRH Kimetha -- yes, she does have a medical concern: placenta previa. I do find it interesting that the IHA is releasing so much information to the press about her condition, though. I can't help...

Yes, this is my understanding also. The only reason I can see Naruhito abdicating if it is a boy is to spare his little family the pressures of the Imperial life since their line won't continue. ...

What is it about Masako that makes the Japanese attack her? Is it that physically she doesn't look like a meek little princess? She is tall and not small boned. Is it that she is so smart the IHA...

So, it sounds like you are supporting the continuation of male emperors. Is that so? If it is, I strongly disagree. There have been female emperors in the past, so it is not like this "tradition"...
