Joined at their hips by their iron-clad support for repealing Article 9 of the Pacifist Constitution, Abe and Koike are acting like an odd couple living in a glass house, who dream of building a thousand catapults to threaten their neighbors, all over again, in the name of self-defense, i.e., defense of their glass house, that is.

One their neighbors who is still smarting from the Japanese occupation of Korea from 1895 to 1945, aka Rocket Man, could not wait for Abe and Koike to announce their election victory, and their to be expected announcement of the destruction of Article 9 of the Pacifist Constitution, enabling the Japanese empire to once again wage war on its weaker neighbors, as always and forever always, in the name of "self-defense".  The world has known Japan's modus operandi well enough in the Mukden Incident, where Japan blamed Chinese soldiers for blowing up their railroad in Manchuria, when it was done by the Japanese themselves.  So, "self-defense" is no obstacle to naked aggression.

Whereas Korea once was a delicate glass menagerie of East Asian culture and Buddhist pacifism, and became a victim to the wolves of Shintoism in 1894, nay, even made unto its slave, including its men, women and children, it is now a hardened fortress, ready to hurl massive stones at the glass castles glittering across the sea from whence the wolves were unleashed on their innocent people.  

Abe and Koike have chosen the wrong time, the wrong place and the wrong enemy in their vain attempt to restore the former glory of the blood-stained empire of yesteryears.  Japan has only one road to salvation, to peace, and to prosperity - it is to wield the shield of the Pacifist Constitution against all potential enemies.  By reforming itself, it will eventually reverse the hostitlity of its foes.

The coming election of October 22, 2017, is a mere camouflage for a brazen attempt to deprive the Japanese people of a chance to decide the fate of their constitution by referendum, and replace it with a mere, artificially contrived, and accidental "super-majority" of militarist radicals inserted into the LDP, Komeito and the Party of Hope, whose dominance in the Diet belies the minority support of the public for something as serious as the revision of their constitution.  They are conspiring to create a majority in the Diet that they cannot sustain in the public mind.  A government that is not of the people, not by the people, and for the people is NOT A DEMOCRACY, but a dictatorship.  This is the greatest threat to the people of Japan, a dictatorship, when what they need the most urgently is the shield of an unblemished, and indisputable Pacifist Constitution.  Do not vote for those who dream of keeping throwing stones at the glass houses of their neighbors, but rather vote for those who have the true conservative spirit to refrain from self-destructive behaviors and words.

The real hope of Japan is not a self-styled "Party of Hope" and the true conservative party is not the "Liberal Democratic Party", but the real, lasting hope of modern Japan, to preserve its peace and sustain its prosperity is the CONSTITUTIONAL DEMOCRATIC PARTY OF JAPAN (CDPJ), whose candidates are the ONLY ones worth voting for, because only they care about the LIVES of their millions of countrymen.  Support Yukio Edano!!!

The Constitutional Democratic Party of Japan made significant gains in the past few days, as the voters realized the so-called Party of Hope was the right-wing accomplice of the LDP, which needed  to replace its own delegates with Anti-Article-9 Constitutional Revisionists in order to achieve a true Super-Majority that can then proceed to pass a bill amending and destroying Article 9 of the constitution.  

There is a risk that even if the LDP were to lose a few seats, these would be replaced with right-wing revisionists from the Party of Hope, rather than with the pro-Article-9 CDP candidates.

The re-militarization of Japan was, is, and will be the real goal of the election of the new Diet, which following the example of Germany in 1933, will turn Japan into another Wehr Macht of the 21st Century in East Asia.

The people of Japan are waking up.  In just a few days, the tide has turned.  The super-majority is no more.

I am not so optimistic. The participation of Party of Hope is actually to lure those sitting on the fence regarding the change in Article 9 of the Constitution to vote for its candidates. Once voted, the party of Hope candidates will support Abe to change the Constitution. I believe there is a silent agreement between Koike and Abe. That is why Koike is not participating in the election although her party is.

Clearly, Kioike is not challenging the leadership of Abe, and by extension, as far as the LDP is concerned, the Party of Hope is leaderless, to be led by Abe instead.  The LDP wants to get rid of its own Anti-Revisionist candidates, and the only way to do this is to have them lose to a non-LDP candidate, i.e., the Party of Hope candidate, who as you also pointed out, will later on vote to revise the constitution.  This is how Abe tries not just to have a super-majority in both the upper and lower houses that belong to the coalition, but a pro-revisionist super-marjority made out of a coalition of the "ruling coalition" (LDP, Komeito and Democratic Progressive Party) and the "opposition party" (Party of Hope).

The first step of the new Diet will be to vote to Revise and Replace Article 9 of the constitution, to take effect no later than November 9, 2017, the 150th Anniversary of the Meiji Restoration.

Once this is achieved, the conscription of a new (Imperial) Japanese Army for deployment to the South China Sea and the Korean Peninsula should begin no later than December 7, 2017, the official start of the Pacific War (or, WWII).  On cue, the remnant of the Imperial Japanese Army in SK will probably engage the NK, to set the stage for the coup de grace of fire and fury with full moral justification.  China seems ready to accept the outcome as a fait accompli without much ado in exchange for being left alone, and escaping economic sanctions.  There is unlikely to be any alternative plans by China, other than acceptance of the outcome, patriotic pundits notwithstanding.

But, by April of 2018, Japan would be demanding for the independence of Taiwan, in accordance with the Treaty of Shimonoseki of 1895, as a "concession" on its part, of not asking for it to be returned to Japanese sovereignty, although the temptation would be extremely high if NK is defeated, to demand the restitution of Taiwan to Japan under the Treaty of Shimonoseki - so China's problems, far from being averted by its inaction, will be multiplied in the aftermath.  As its Great Helmsman once said, "Political power comes from the barrel of the gun (which clearly would not have been China's)".
