Princess Masako Possibly Waves To Crowd at Japan New Year’s Gathering.

Japan’s Crown Princess Masako joined other members of the royal family to wave to crowds gathered at the Imperial Palace as Japan Emperor Akihito offered his annual New Year’s greetings on Jan. 2, 2009.

Princess Masako has suffered from depression for several years and has rarely appeared in public. In December 2008, it was reported Masako’s health is improving and she feels more able to participate in social events.

The stiff Masako robotic-wave caught the attention of the Lets Japan investigative team. After enhancing the public photos, we noticed what appears to be wiring and electronics protruding from the right arm of "Masako".

This photo seems to indicate an advanced robot replacement developed by skilled Japanese technicians was used for the New Year’s event. Perhaps Masako is still feeling unwell.

    Oh, and depression isn’t crazy - you try being a member of that pack of freaks inside the moat and see what it does to you, freedomwv.

    Crazy or not, I can just imagine that head of the Imperial Household Agency (or whatever the hell it’s called) saying through clenched teeth, "Come on! With feeling, God damnit!"
    She definitely does drive him crazy ;)
