We’ll be keeping an eye on the ongoing situation, because we want to make sure all GenkiJACS students stay safe, but we don’t anticipate any danger. Like all responsible businesses, we have evacuation plans in place for all major possibilities, from typhoon to Pikachu invasion.
And we also have our faithful school managers, Tomoe-sensei in Tokyo and Yuuki-san in Fukuoka, to keep everybody in line!
1) North Korea has been test-firing missiles since 1984, and sending them over Japan since 1998. This is not a new problem.
2) North Korea’s leadership doesn’t want to actually fight other countries, for obvious reasons.
3) North Korea’s military capability is intended as a defense against regime change (internal or external).
4) The missile this time (and all the ones before it) was not aimed at Japan at all, it just passed through Japan’s air space.
… On the other hand, the Pikachu invasion is a real and imminent threat and people should wake up and realize that we are all in danger!
We should all be scared.
They are coming.
