  1. Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba is one of the best-selling manga series of all time. A new movie based on the series was released in October and is already one of Japan's highest-grossing movies. Perhaps understandable then that Japan's Chief Cabinet Secretary was prompted to comment after Hong Kong Police allegedly ripped-off the lead character's likeness for an anti-fraud campaign. While the world has been struggling with the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, very few notable movies are being released to the public. Christopher Nolan’s Tenet wa

  4.

  5. HONG KONG (Reuters) - A Hong Kong riot cop who was filmed chanting “black lives matter” and “I can’t breathe” on patrol during a demonstration on Friday has been reprimanded by authorities, according to media reports.

  6. A 56-year-old man from Hong Kong has contracted the rat-specific version of hepatitis E, something never observed before in a human patient.

Police sought a ban in July on the Hong Kong National Party (HKNP), a well-known but small group with a core membership of around a d
  8. Hong Kong protestors have managed to keep their largely leaderless movement going for the past three months partly through their savvy use of technologies, including messaging apps like Telegram and social media platforms such as Twitter.

LIHKG, the de facto online headquarters for protestors, who use the website to exchange tips and comments about the movement, said it came under an “unprecedented” distributed denial of service, or DDoS, attack on Aug. 31, with the epi

  10. https://lihkg.com/thread/1655646/page/1 Since June 2019, people in Hong Kong rallied in massive numbers in opposition to the proposed extradition bill.

In response to this, in July 2019, a group of citizens launched an effort to assemble publicly available information and conduct an independent investigation into the HKPF's actions.

The makers, and many others, have taken exception to that a

  14.

  18. On May 25 and 26, Hong Kong Customs carried out a series of raids against four retail outlets suspected of selling "fully loaded" set-top boxes which provided unauthorized access to movies and TV shows.
