Kinda and no. Its more no.

China has UN power and has gotten 3/4 to vote to recognize Taiwan as a province of China.
Most recognize Taiwan as the province of china. (Most euro powers that arent large do and basically everyone else)

HOWEVER.
Taiwan is self controlled. And has never been anexed.

China claims Taiwan but has made no actual physical measures against it.

So kinda and basically no.

On an international scale. It is a province, as prc has UN SC position and world power/ influence an had historic rights. UN resolutions and voting majority have stated this

But on a world power level(murica and friends vs china and friends) they are two separate entities.

Yup. A protest is like a short fuse - if a spark accidentally lights it up, it's hard to extinguish and it's most likely gonna explode. Nothing new here.

How prevalent is autotune in the Japanese music industry?

I believe it is more prevalent in United States and Korea but I have no idea about Japan
I think auto tune is used less (in general) but there's definitely more dynamic range compression.

The only thing I still remember of the anime is that my favourite character is that snake, and I couldn't even recall her name...
