A contender for "Japan's funniest home videos"
It’s exhilarating to see a kid hit a fast-moving baseball, but this probably wasn’t the result this dad wanted.

Forget about renting an obviously unbelievable hottie; these rental boyfriends charm with more attainable good looks.

Introduction
What is RocketNews24?
Headquartered in Tokyo, Japan, RocketNews24 is a Japanese-language news blog. Since our humble launch in 2008 we’ve built a massive fan base by reporting the interesting, strange and random, much of it brought over from the English-speaking world.

Two years later, we launched our English site to bring Asia’s own brand of strange to the English-speaking world. Most of the articles we offer are translated right from our Japanese site, providing you unique stories and trivial information about Japan, by Japan.

We hope to show you that Japan and Asia are full of wonders, and, more than anything, we hope to make you smile!
