New article came out recently.

https://www.theatlantic.com/business/archive/2017/07/japan-mystery-low-birth-rate/534291/

Quote from the article: "According to Kingston, between 1995 and 2008, Japan’s number of regular workers decreased by 3.8 million while the number of irregular workers increased by 7.6 million." This in turn leads to reasons why many are hesitant to marry, because they don't have job security or the money to be financially stable. Men in particular aren't able to find jobs as easily as their female counterparts...

Another fact that is to consider is how some Japanese don't sleep in an actual home. There was a Youtube documentary covering how people don't stay at home, but rather stay at an Internet cafe, which is a popular place and is cheaper in the sense that you don't pay much to spend the night and the food is pretty much instant. It shows how Japan as a culture has a concept of working around the clock.

Sailor Moon is personally responsible for thousands of Japanese babies never to be born. The Japanese are doomed. :cthulhu:

^ Could be the "lifestyles" of even more, if not most, people globally in the future, as more & more people will get unemployed due to the mass disappearance of jobs caused by very-large-scale automation w/ AI/robots in many/most industries across the board, so we might just be getting a glimpse of the future from this growing social phenomenom in Japan today.
