Edits to The Eternal Zero[edit]

Hi Sound Argument 2,

Thank you for your edits to the article The Eternal Zero, especially for the section about Yoko Ono and the author's comments.

I would like to clarify the following items:

Firstly, I would like to check if this statement "As a matter of fact, the original book, which is much longer than the film and will soon be translated into English, throws a number of doubts on controversial issues about WW2. By depicting a life of a Zero fighter (and his love, emotional turmoil etc.), who wanted to go back home alive but had to give up his life as a suicidal kamikaze attacker, the author showed sinfulness of mass media (propaganda), incompetence of the Japanese hierarchical bureaucratism, criticising the policies of high-officials in Japan at the time." is taken from any secondary research. Do note that as a matter of policy, Wikipedia editors are not allowed to place forth their personal analysis on the issue at hand, as Wikipedia is an encyclopedia, not a research paper. If it was taken from a secondary source, please add it the corresponding reference to this statement.

Moreover, your statement "mainly foreign critics who cannot read or understand the Japanese well" is blatantly untrue. In The Economist sources and The Japan Times article, both have quoted experts on Japanese history who have unequivocally stated that such a claim about the Kamikaze pilots is untrue. Are these people "critics who cannot read or understand the Japanese well"? Should you find any reliable sources that proves my statement invalid, you are welcome to bring forth your argument again (with the corresponding reference material).

Lastly, do you have any refernece to cite that Yoko Ono did write a message for the brochure?

Thank you once again for you edits. I look forward to working with you! Happy editing!--Lionratz (talk) 02:01, 6 June 2014 (UTC)

Dear Lionratz , Thank you for your comment. I'm still a novice, and I'm sorry that I didn't add some necessary references.

First, I've just added a reference to the message of Yoko Ono. I assume it's ok now. Incidentally I have one question regarding her message. I thought it's ok to quote her short message and did so. However, the message was deleted. Could you possibly tell me why it was deleted?

As for other comments you made, I can give references as well. However I am currently not in Japan, so I don't have the book at hand right now. I will surely add the references when I visit Japan next time.

With best wishes, Sound Argument 2
